Welcome to Spark!

Spark has many helps for new folks. Here are some tips:

1. Set up a personal page. This is your jumping off space for your Spark experience. Your page allows other SparkPeople to find you and give you support and encouragement.

2. Join a team. Interested in a specific eating plan? There's probably a team for that! Have a hobby or like a special TV show like Biggest Losers? Look for a team! Teams offer lots of information about Spark and a quick way to get involved.

3. Go to your nutrition and fitness sections from your points or start tabs. If you're not sure what eating plan you want, Spark will ask a few questions and create one for you to try. Same goes for fitness!

If you are interested in walking, I'd suggest you join the 12 Weeks to Walking Team (you can find their icon by going to my page and looking at my teams). This is a great team for walkers at all levels, beginners to advanced.

The Spark experts are very helpful - you might do the free trial coaching to get you started and see if coaching will work for you!

Hope this helps you reach your goals!

This is a great site! You will find so much support here. Click on Community at the top of the start page and then SparkTeams. There are several running teams you can join to help keep you motivated.

You may want to set up a spark page so we can all get to know you and lend support. Check out my spark page and let me know if I can help in any way!

I am starting my 2014 fitness regime. Hoping to drop some pounds and up my running game.

I needed some accountability. I think I found it here.
