Welcome to Sparks.
This is a great place to be. I have never met another group online or off where everyone is non-judgmental and very welcoming. Anyway….,
Here are some links I hope you find helpful...

There are also groups here that you can join. They are started not only by Sparks themselves, but also the members with special interests. Finding a group of like-minded individuals makes it easier to stay with the goals you have set for yourself. They also have a Sparks coaching program that charges a small fee each month. This is optional and only something offered for those who want a more personalized special coaching.
This site offers a lot and continues to grow by leaps and bounds. And if you ever run into any problems, don't hesitate to ask anyone…no matter what, I have found, they'll find a way to help.
