I know the website probably seems a little overwhelming. I know I felt that way when I get started. Figure you'll need a week to get the hang of the basics. Don't worry ! Here are some articles to help you learn how to use the software as well as a link to some frequently asked questions.

I think most of what you need to know about using Spark People, you can find with this

Take things slowly !!

This site is so massive it can be kind of over whelming. I would probably suggest starting with your food and fitness trackers. Those are great tools and it helps to get used to them. The food track especially is great, and you can input your own recipes, label information, etc.

After that, I'd say go through your sparkpoints tracker in the drop down, because that can be a good introduction to different areas of the site and give you spark points for doing things like tracking food, fitness, posting on message boards, doing quizzes, etc.

Also, joining spark teams can be a fun way to meet people!

Good luck.

One thing you can begin with is to write a blog. Then people may comment on it. You can also post in the group of members who joined the same week as you did, if people are still put into such groups now (I joined 2011).

You can also search for groups with your interests. Under the community tab the 3rd choice down is sparkteams.
