    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!

    Not sure about teams for retired people, but I'm in one for those 50+ with 10 lbs or less to lose. I'm retired and LOVING it; get to work out without having to fit it in to my day which is great.

    As you search teams you'll find there are 1000's and you can probably find one that fits what you want. Getting active on the teams both getting and giving advice is great. The articles here are really informative and credible; you can read more about nutrition and fitness as well as specific health-related topics.

    IMO this site is wonderful and has really helped keep me focused on maintenance. That said, it's not just about the site - Spark has the tools and will help us to use them. How and how much we use them is up to us.

    For me the turning point at age 61+ was relaxing that losing weight had to incorporate changes that I could live with forever. Making small sustainable changes over time led to an 80 lb loss that I've kept off.

    Check out my page to read what worked and works for me.
