    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. 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.

    2. 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!

    For years I had the same fear. I could always lose the weight but could never keep it off. What worked for me....finally! was the realization that what I did to lose weight was what I'd be doing for life. I took it slow and made small sustainable changes first focusing on my eating and only gradually adding in exercise.

    You'll get GREAT information here with the articles and the community is wonderful and supportive. IMO diets don't work, lifestyle changes do.

    Welcome to sparkpeople! You will find a lot of great tools and support here. Check out the 30 day small changes challenge in challenge central. It got me started off on the right foot when I joined sparkpeople.
