You've all given me some great tips. I've started searching around on Spark People to see what there is and it is a little overwhelming, but I am going to pick through a little at a time. This program was suggested by my physician - looks like he knows what he's doing!

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!

Hi - This is my second day on Sparkpeople, and it has been eye opening! I definitely need to pay attention to what I am putting in my mouth, even if I think it isn't "that bad". I am consuming too many calories and I was actually surprised by that today. I have 50 pounds to lose and it sounds and seems overwhelming to me...but one pound at a time, I guess!
