    Welcome to Spark People!!! This site has so much to offer!! When you have time, try to really look around and explore it. I think that joining some of the spark teams that interest you is one really great way to meet people with similar interests/problems as you. It makes it a lot easier when you have that kind of support around! Best of luck to you!

    The goal of this website is to teach people to live a healthy lifestyle, not just a 'diet'. That means exercising regularly and eating healthy nutritious meals for the rest of your life in order to lose weight and then keep it off!
    Spark's tools and program encourages you to learn healthy living one step at a time, working on good habits until they become second nature. It is not easy, and it will take time getting used to it, but will be rewarding in the end to stick with it.
    Tracking calories is the key. Accurately weighing and measuring everything you eat is vital, as guessing can too easily go over. I was good with exercising, but had never tracked my food before and that made a huge difference and opened my eyes to just how easy it is to consume more calories than your body needs. You must also make sure you set the Fitness Tracker to how much exercise you do in a week so it can give the Nutrition Tracker the right calorie range to stay in to lose weight. I actually really enjoy juggling my food choices to make sure I get the right nutrient ratios and stay in the calorie range, its really quite challenging LOL. But getting them right means your metabolism will be fueled properly, important to make your exercise pay off and burn those calories!
    We comment, blog, send goodies and most important, add friends on our Spark Pages. The support on this website is overwhelming and is what keeps us sticking to the program even through the toughest times. I still remember the thrill of the very first blog I wrote and getting responses to it. I have met so many nice people on here.
    I wish you all the best with your journey to a new you!
