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 *~

Hi everyone! My name is Michelle, I live in the Boston area, single gal, and I'm 41 years old.
I'm here to get myself healthy and fit. I was healthy for quite a while, but recently, with work, age, and all, I've been getting pretty lazy. The wake up call for me was a few weeks back when I stepped on my scale one morning and saw that I was 185! I've always used the excuse that because I was semi-tall (5'7" barefoot, about 5"10-5'11" with pumps on), that I could "fill out" a bit more. But this is just too much. I'm ready to get fit and kick butt!
Looking forward to lots of support from all of you!
