Hi emoticon and congratulations on beginning your Spark journey!

There's so much here to help you along the way and excellent advice to setting and achieving healthy goals. With the thousands and thousands of fellow Sparkers you will always find someone you can connect with. I am always amazed how many lives have been changed for the better through the use of SparkPeople.

If you have not already done so, I suggest that you check out the videos in the "Healthy Lifestyle" section. Scroll down for the site orientation videos.

That should point you in the right direction. I find that if you just start looking around Spark, you will quickly learn about the wonderful tools available for your use. After being a Sparker since 2007, I still find something new and very useful.

Welcome and best wishes!

Welcome Sarah!
A good place to start is the Community tab. It will show you how to get around the site in video and also fill you in on teams and forums. You are so luck as you are young and have your whole life ahead of you. You will knock out the pounds you want to lose and maybe find out a little more surprises about yourself! I'm 61 and feel better than when I played college football so many years ago. Don't hesitate to ask questions. I wish you all the best and be well.

My name is Sarah and I am currently a college student in Foreign Language teaching. One of my cooperating teachers at school told me about this site and so I checked it out! It's pretty neat!
