I just happened across your page and thought I would welcome you to SP! Sticking with it is definitely my problem as well, but SP gives us a great way to stay accountable and see our goals as more concrete. Best of luck on your journey, you made an important step by starting here! 1139 days ago
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 and !! My name is Angela and I have been on this site since June 2012. Congratulations on taking your first steps to a brand new you and a new weight loss experience where you are supported by en entire community of like-minded people. This website is dedicated to helping people who want a healthier lifestyle including issues with eating healthy and exercising, as well as support forums where we talk about specific issues.
My recommendation is to live by your calorie tracker and track EVERYHTING that passes your lips! Salt, seasonings, everything. It will really help you find out where you are missing the target, or overshooting!!
I recommend reading through the Getting Started Guide at this link: www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/get_star ted.asp
