Welcome to SP! Here is your Getting Started Guide: http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/get_s tarted.asp
And I think these new member tutorial videos are very helpful: http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motiva tion_articles.asp?id=571
The SparkDiet Overview explains how the nutrition program here works: http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/stage _overview_all.asp
Some things that are helpful to many new members: Get on 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 Spark Page 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! I’m glad you’re with us.

I'm a 32 year old stay at home mom of a one-year-old girl. I'd like to lose about 45-50 pounds. I've been gaining weight and occasionally trying to lose weight, falling off the wagon and gaining more, pretty much since 2005. I've never tried anything like this, so hopefully it will be the ticket! Don't really know what else to say...
