Welcome to SparkPeople. We are all here for the same reason, no matter what our personal story is. We are here to help each other to get to that healthy point we want to be in our lives. It is not going to be easy, but it is attainable. Make small goals and they will lead to big successes. You have to make you #1 and tell yourself that you are worth it. And remember you didn't gain the weight overnight and you won't lose it overnight. It takes time, determination, motivation and support. You can get it all right here! If you don't take care of yourself you can't take care of anyone else. If I can help in anyway, feel free to reach out to me! You can do it! We are here to help!

Welcome to Spark People. As a newbie, the best thing I can tell you is the more you put into your program, the more benefits you will reap. Do the basics: track all your food and exercises on the trackers, post and huddle with your team for support, build your spark page or update it from time to time so we can get to know you better, drink your water every day, ask questions -we are all here to help. Welcome again and I hope to see more of you on the site. It is a big site. so take your time and look around. Don't overwhelm yourself by joining too many teams- just enough to get guidance and support from and that you can keep active with- a team on which you are not active is no good to you or good for the team either. Good luck on your weight loss journey and becoming a more healthy and fit you.
