    Happy Friday - Happy Weekend! Hope you are doing well and have some fun planned. This is a great time of year for sparkers as the grocery store is getting fresh produce and the weather is beckoning us outdoors to "play". Enjoy!

    Press On!

    Just stopping by to wish you a wonderful weekend. Carve out some time for yourself (fitness, meal planning, and SP time). You are WORTH it!

    Press On!

    emoticon Greetings and emoticon

    Congrats on taking the first step to reaching a healthier you by getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

    Please check out the SparkTeams - I think you will find a lot of others 'just like you' there. You can choose SparkTeams by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways - in fact, I suggest joining more than one group, post your intro there and write blogs as often as you can - you will find tons of friends and support that way, I promise!!

    In my experience, SparkPeople is like a emoticon in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!


    If you ever need any help using features of the site, there are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site. You can also find them on the START page and several other places on the site.


    If you haven't discovered The Spark book and/or the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check them out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.


    Another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I do - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!

    Hello and welcome! I've been using SP for about a month, but this is my first post on the boards! (I used babyfit when I was pregnant with both of my girls, but all I used was the message boards, so I'm trying to be better about not "chatting" the day away.

    I would however, like a "check in" buddy or something-we could private message each other once a week to "recap" and encourage or something...

    I started with 15 lbs to lose, and have already lost 5. My goal is to lose them by May, for my daughter's first birthday, but I will say, I'm already thrilled about just having a healthier lifestyle, and that is more important than losing the pounds, honest!

    Private message me if you want to be buddies!
