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. 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! *~ Paula *~

Hi. My name is Megan. I'm 27 years old and have a daughter who is 7 years old. I have been alittle over weight since I graduated from high school. I have never been an active person in school or out of it. I have tried diets before and only seemed to get 2 weeks into them before I quit. I get really easily discouraged of myself if I didn't have a perfect diet day. Now I've come to realize that I don't have to have a perfect diet day, but let myself have a small treat or say tomorrow I won't drink pop or eat fastfood. I have been on here before, but this time I am actually committed to succeeding and letting this site help me on my journey.
