Searching for my Spark...

I joined SparkPeople in July 2008 and was really successful...for a while. I can make every excuse in the book as to why I've gained back every ounce (and then some) of the original 41 pounds I was able to lose after joining this site, but they are just that. Excuses. Now it's time to stop with the excuses and just start making changes. Starting today, I am determined to find that spark I lost somewhere along the way.

emoticon emoticon emoticon WELCOME TO SPARK!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
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!

Today is the first day of the rest of my life and I choose to live it healthy. I'm so on your side and know what it feels like to be on a weight gain/loss roller coaster. Let's forget about all the attempts we have made and start fresh. Good luck to you. Even if I don't lose a ton of weight I will know that I am trying and getting healthier in the process. Keep us posted on your struggles and successes.
