emoticon emoticon emoticon WELCOME TO SPARK!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
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!

What a great opportunity! I wish my local hospital would have something like that. Sparkpeople is a great place to be to keep track of your progress and find motivation. Good luck on your journey!

I am a 47 year old Mother of two.Like alot of the stories I let myself go.Got pregnant,got chubby,had two kids,quit smoking but worst of all bought track pants.Those things are way too forgiving! Have tried over the years to take charge.I have jumped on the band wagon more times that I can count and think I still have the bruises from falling I have recently been offered a wonderful opportunity....fundraiser for our local hospital.Its called "lose it to win" same idea as the "biggest loser" on T.V.I will go to be measured and weighed (ekk) om October 21st.It runs for 4 months.They track weight loss,inches lost,hours tracked in the gym.... So for me this is it,my golden oppurtunity.I feel if I can't do it this time with all the resources I will have to help me I might not ever.I am hoping because I have gone "public" about it that just might be what keeps me on track.Heres hoping.Heres to 4 months of hard work and hopefully a new and smaller wardrobe!!!Linda
