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. Put together your own Spark page. This is a great way to communicate with other members and build relationships that will support and motivate you. You can do this by going to the START page and the green section has something about your Sparkpage.

2. 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.

3. 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!

Hi Kalie,
Welcome!
SP is an awesome site with everything you need to be a healthier you. Members here are really supportive.
If you haven't done so already, I do recommend you join a few Spark Teams that interest you. Participating on those teams will help keep you accountable and motivated.

Best of luck to you!

Hey, my name's Kalie. I'm 20 years old, 5'6" and 175lbs. I guess I'm gonna break down and seriously try this. Losing weight has been on my mind for years. Honestly, I'm angry because I started thinking about getting fat when I was at 120. Now I'd kill for that! The past two years, however, losing weight has been placed on the back burner. Started college, working full time to support tuition. You know, stress gets to ya, so you gain and gain and gain! Well, I'm sick of gaining. Plus I've noticed my blood pressure is rising, I'm having more difficulty breathing after activity, I'm lethargic all the time, and all around don't feel like I used to, just two years ago. I need to get a handle on this BEFORE it gets out of hand. Any help and encouragement would be appreciated. :)
