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 *~

Congratulations on the loss! It feels so good to get to goal. I had mine originally set for 15# more than I am now, but am very happy that I moved on. You are going to look great on your wedding day!

Hi all. I am new to this website, but not new to losing weight. Since my peak weight, I have lost 71.5 pounds. 50 of those pounds have been lost since Jan 1, 2013. I have spent this past year floating around Weight Watchers, MyFitnessPal, and even LoseIt… but I have never tried using SparkPeople before!
I don’t see myself doing much tracking here, but I really like the look of the community so I’m hoping to become active here. I am now 5.6 pounds away from my goal weight! It’s tough staying motivated to finish and it’s tempting to just move into maintaining now, but I want to finish what I started and reach the goal I set out to achieve.
A little more about me: I’m 23, female, and I now live and work in Los Angeles. I’ll be getting married next year in October 2014!
