WELCOME TO SPARK!!! Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time.
A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.
1. Put together your own Spark page. This is a great way to communicate with other members and build relationships that will support and motivate you. You can do this by going to the START page and the green section has something about your Sparkpage.
2. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.
3. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.
The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family! *~ Paula *~

A familiar story, I'm sure, but one I feel must be told. A few years back I decided, once and for all, to lose the excess weight on my body. I went from 155 to 115 in the course of about a 1/2 year.
However, I wasn't making lifestyle changes that could sustain my weight loss. I figured once I got to my goal weight I could loosen up, especially since I was now exercising. Slowly over the past few months I've seen the scale creep up to 132 pounds. I feel horrible about myself but I'm ready to get myself back on track.
My name is Christine, I'm happy to be here. I'm looking forward to getting to know each and every one of you. 😊
