Hi and welcome aboard! I guarantee you will not be disappointed in your decision in joining Sparkpeople (if you do it right)! I will admit the results will vary due to your efforts and your honesty towards yourself. I do wish you the best in your Sparkpeople journey and if you should need some words of encouragement or motivation, hit me up as a Spark-friend? If you have any questions; feel free to send me a spark-mail. If you have some spare time, please visit my spark-page and read some of my spark-blogs (located on the right hand side of my Spark-page). Also please take a look at my Spark-page Photo album and witness a true transformation of my accomplishments –Before and Recent). If you have any problems of seeing my Spark page; shoot me a Spark-mail and I’ll add you as a friend. There may be some confusion about my attendance. I have been in since 2009, but like others, I have fallen off the wagon and went missing. However, I just recently joined back up (1/23/13) and I am dead serious about it this time around! So if you are serious about achieving your weight goal; you are invited to ride along with me to accomplish it and if not; that is okay too! Again, I wish you the best! Now, enough reading; it is time for you to go accomplish your goals (Ooorah)!

Hi and welcome to SparkPeople. There are so many great tools and great people involved with this site. I'm sure that SP can help you along on your journey to a healthy lifestyle. Good luck reaching your goals!

I would recommend taking things slowly. Pick one or two things to concentrate on (like joining a few teams to make some friends, reading articles, or tracking food, etc) and add more activities later when you are more comfortable with the site. That's what I did when I first joined and it worked out well.

Hi Melissa,
well first off let me say congratulations on the 58 pounds you've lost. That's great. I hear what you're saying about the site. Lots and lots of info, learning to get around will take a little bit of time. But will be well worth it, Im sure. Keep going girl, you're doing awesome. emoticon

Been on SP for a few weeks. I feel overwhelmed by all the information. I'm loving the site but still trying to figure out which button to click here or there to go back to either my main page, figure out if I have any mail, how to make connections on SP etc.

I'm Melissa, 44 in Kansas. I have lost 58 pounds on WW. I am still doing WW but find little to no support in the meetings or in their online service. It's very limited on contacting people or looking at articles and that sent me on a hunt to find new support an possibly friends who can support and allow me to support them, in this healthy journey.

I hope to find new friends and if you find me and I can't figure out how to find you back, please don't be offended. I just can't figure out this site, loving it but it's very overwhelming and claustrophobic in a way. emoticon
