Thank you so much. I really like the idea of breaking down my goals. It's so hard sometimes to remember the 1st step is a step towards the ultimate goal.

I am really glad I am here.

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!

I have been up and down the weight rollercoaster. But I finally decided that I was tired of not being able to look at myself in the mirror. I want to be happy with my health. I take pills everyday because of my weight. I had a heart attack at 38 years old, and this year I am turning 40. I signed onto SparkPeople before, but I wasn't ready to do the work, but this time something is different. I almost lost my son. And because of my weight, I was unable to be there for him all the time. I can't let that happen again. I need to be the vibrant mother I was meant to be, and this time I HAVE to make the healthier choices. For me, for my children and for the future.
