!! My name is Ang (ANGRITTER) and I have been on this site since June. It was time for a change and I was tired of just talking about it. So I did some internet checking for a nutrition and exercise tracker and stumbled across SparkPeople.com. And what a find! I was never on anything like this site before, and never even did Facebook blogging. Now I am a team co-leader and on the SparkPeople Community Team which helps other new people find their way around and get comfortable.
I am sure your friend is delighted to have you join, and we are delighted to have you as well. This site is dedicated to helping people who want a healthier lifestyle including issues with eating healthy and exercising, as well as support forums where we talk about specific issues. You can search for a team based on several different themes: age, expecting mother, amount you want to lose, specific health issues, favorite hobbies and interests, etc.
You should check into your SparkPoints page every day. If you try to get all the SparkPoints possible, it will help you to navigate the site and teach you how to interact with others on your team message boards and on others’ blogs, so it encourages you to make friends and comment on others’ progress.
So welcome and enjoy! If you have questions, you can always reach out and send me a SparkMail, or stop by my SparkPage at the link below. We can do this together, with encouragement and support from others, and SparkPeople has really great resources for any kind of workout or condition!
Welcome, Welcome, Welcome, and Enjoy!
