Hello, I am new to the site also. This is day 4. I love the site and find it incredibly helpful and educational. I was under the impression that this site was free. Then this morning, I received a notification that I was on day four of my seven day free trial. Money is horribly tight right now and I am concerned that I will no longer be able to use the site in three days. Can you shed some light on what is free and what is not? Thanks a bunch!

WELCOME TO SPARK!!! 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. Put together your own Spark page. This is a great way to communicate with other members and build relationships that will support and motivate you. You can do this by going to the START page and the green section has something about your Sparkpage.
2. 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.
3. 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! *~ Paula *~

I'm happy to find a program that will help me be my best healthy self without financially ruining me The onset of early menopause (along with a crazy work schedule and bad eating habits) has wrecked havoc with my weight. Bootcamp for two months saw an 11 pound weight loss, but it was too intense, time-consuming, not schedule-friendly and too expensive. I need some organization and I'm hoping Sparkpeople will get me back on track. Here's to positive changes for 2013!
