    On this site you will find it full of support and motivation for you. Check out all the different teams to join and meet new people. There's so much to learn and discover here. A couple of things I would suggest to make your Spark experience and great one.

    1. Put together your own Sparkpage. This way other members can meet and get to know you. This is also a great way to get some support from other Sparkies.

    2. Make a list of your goals for your journey and break them down to mini goals for each month. This way it doesn't seem so overwhelming.

    3. Check out all the different teams to join. The key is to find one or many that fit you.

    Being an active member here is key, to becoming successful on your journey. High five for taking a step into making a healthy change for yourself. Everyone is friendly and will be willing to help out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle!

    Hi Marlinda and welcome to Spark People where you will find lots of information and tons of support and encouragement from all our members. You will find that we also have fun along the way. Drink your 8-8oz glasses of water a day, watch your portion control and walk. Use your fitness and nutrition tracker daily. These tips will definitely help in lowering your numbers. Don't expect miracles right away...this is a lifestyle change not a diet. You will be much healthier in the long run. Post any concerns, comments or questions you may have and someone will respond quickly.
    Start each day with a positive thought for the day. Reading and reflecting on a inspirational thought or message before you start your day can put you in a positive frame of mind.
    Your thoughts determine whether you have a good day or a bad day. Fill your mind with positive ideas, suggestions, and thoughts. You will find it will change your attitude and changing your attitude can change your life.
    Sometimes just reading an inspirational quote or a short paragraph help one see the positive in a situation. Sometimes as your day progresses you just need to take a break…Take a mental break and read or think about a message of inspiration.
    Never underestimate your power to change and improve! You are a good person, with wonderful qualities, and you can reach your goals!
    If I can be of any help to you, please let me know with a spark mail or a comment on my page. I am here for you.
    God bless you on your journey to a healthier you.
