WELCOME Jen! Nice to have you with us! I love my Sparkworld, and so will you!

Great job on the weight loss! Sounds like you are on your way to reaching your goal!!! FANTASTIC!!!

Here are tips I put together to share with each new Sparkperson I meet. I hope it will be a help as you reach your goals!

The site can be overwhelming, take your time. Learn one topic at a time, when you get comfortable with it, move on to another area of the site. Soon you will be using all the tools SP has to offer, and loving it!

Use your Spark Points (click on view SparkPoints) as a map to the site. It is a good way to learn your way around and you can earn points to send yourself or others Sparkgoodies.

Go back to your Start Page if you get lost, you can get almost anywhere from there.

Be sure to use the nutrition tracker. You can ensure you are getting the proper nutrients as well as tracking your caloric intake and this is so important to any weight loss journey.

Never "diet" again! Keep focusing on living a healthier lifestyle!

Read the book, THE SPARK for guidance, motivation and inspiration!

Log on everyday to stay focused!

NEVER QUIT!! NEVER GIVE UP!
THINK POSITIVE! If you have a bad day, let it go.
Wake up to a new day, fresh start!

One of my favorite SP quotes (from BobbyD31)
"Remember we all have Setbacks:
ACCEPT it, HANDLE it, and MOVE ON!

Remember, this is a LIFETIME JOURNEY!!

The online community on the site is wonderful! We are all here to offer support when you need it, or celebrate your successes with you. Any type of interest you have, there will be a Sparkteam for it!

Stop by my Sparkpage anytime and let me know how you are doing! I would love to hear from you!

Enjoy your journey to a healthier you!

Have FUN along the way!

Hi! I'm new to SparkPeople and wanted to introduce myself. My name is Jen. I'm a first year medical student and am more health conscious than ever. I began my weight loss journey on October 27th, 2011 when I weighed 160 lbs at 5'6". I now weigh 133.4 lbs and my goal weight is 120 lbs. Thank you for all your support!
