If there was anywhere better than this place I think we would all be in there. It is the best place I have found by a mile - all the info and tools are here and there are many who are already supporting you.

If I can ever help please get in touch.

Cheers

emoticon emoticon emoticon WELCOME TO SPARK!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
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. 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.

2. 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!

emoticon to SP! I'm glad you found us!

Here is your Getting Started Guide:
http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/get_s
tarted.asp

These New Member Tutorial Videos are very helpful: http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motiva
tion_articles.asp?id=571

Be sure to set up your nutrition tracker and follow the guidelines Sparkpeople gives you. It is important to eat a balanced diet with adequate calories (yes, if you don't eat enough, you will not lose weight). The website will give you a range of calories each day. Eat well while losing weight by eating within that range. Likewise, you should follow the guidelines for carbohydrates, protein, fat, water, fiber, etc.

I try to encourage new members to get active in the SparkPeople community! Join a Spark Team or two that match your interests. You will find it easy to get acquainted with folks on Spark Teams. For instance, you can select a Team of Sparkers in your city, or Sparkers who follow a particular food plan (vegetarians, low carb, etc.), Sparkers with a particular health concern, or Sparkers who share your hobbies. Another option is to set up your SparkPage and start blogging. Some folks use the Community Journals. Post a lot on the message boards, especially if you have successes or challenges. You'll soon find that you're connecting with many nice folks here.

This is a great, positive community! Iím glad youíre with us.
