FOXYDS, welcome to you, too! When you get a chance, you may want to set up a Spark Page of your own. That way, others can "friend" you, leave encouraging comments on your page, and send you a Spark Goodie now and then. It's a fun and motivational way to connect with others who share your goals and interests.

Hi and welcome! I'm glad you've decided to join us on the journey to better health! Most everything you need to know is on the orange tabbed toolbar near the top of the page. The Nutrition and Fitness trackers under the My Trackers tab are invaluable. Under the Healthy Lifestyle tab, you'll find an overview of the "SparkDiet," which will explain the four stages of the Spark journey.

Spark isn't really a diet - it's a lifestyle change. The idea is to make small changes (take baby steps) one or two at a time, and once those become healthy habits that your body is used to, then add another change. That way, you won't become overwhelmed and the changes will become lifelong healthy habits.

I would suggest that you start using the Nutrition Tracker to track everything you eat and drink - this will give you an idea of what you're doing right and what and how you can make changes that will bring you more success. Also, you may want to go ahead and start working toward drinking 8 cups of water a day as well as exercising at least 10 minutes per day. Those are small changes that will get you off to a super start!

I get a lot of encouragement and support from some of the teams I joined which are particular to my personal struggles and challenges. There are teams for just about every interest, hobby, or medical condition you can name. I find it really helps to have that support!

Good luck on reaching all your goals. It sounds like you have a wonderful family and I applaud you for wanting to be there for them. That's why I'm on my Spark journey.

Again, welcome!

Howdy!!! Just a quick note to say hi and get started on changing my life for myself and my family. I want to lose 100 pounds and feel amazing as well as look amazing. I am 43, mother of 22, 7, and 4 year old. I have 3 stepchildren also. I really want to be around to raise my little ones. I know I can do it with some dedication, motivation and education from this site. I am open to any and all ideas and suggestions.
