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 *~

Hello Eliz! Great spirit and I wish you well. My husband was also on those pills and it didn't work for him either. We decided to get serious with our diet and really started adding veggies full force to our diet. He's lost 38lbs and I've lost 35. He's blood pressure is great and we both feel much better. I wish you all the best. Dee

Hi everybody. I'm excited! I've been on statins for high cholesterol for years (Crestor and others), but they made me feel terrible--muscle ache, brain fog, dizziness, etc. I recently decided to just quit taking them--going to try diet and exercise (with my doctor's supervision). So weight loss is a must. SparkPeople, here I come!
It's not a "diet"--it's a LifeStyle. Dream it, believe it, live it.
