Welcome to Spark People!
You have taken a step to a healthier and more active lifestyle. No matter what your goals are or your plans to accomplish them, SP has plenty of resources to help you. There are articles and blogs that address nutrition, health, wellness and fitness.
You will receive acknowledgement for your accomplishments-big and small—with Sparkpoints, trophies and goodies.
And, this is the most important aspect for me, you are now part of a community that will support and encourage you. Be sure to check out the teams. My teammates have made a difference when I stumbled. They also celebrated my triumphs.
If you have questions about any aspect of the website or the program, post a message in one of our Forums. For example, if you have a question about nutrition, post a message in the Diet and Nutrition Forum. Or a question about exercise, post in the Fitness Forum and so forth.

Welcome to Sparkpeople! I suggest finding at least one feature on this website that you can do on a daily basis that works for you. For some people that is making a daily status update. For others it's tracking exercise and/or food. For me my most helpful habit is to blog. I find that it's cathartic and keeps me focused on my daily, weekly, and monthly goals.
Last but not least, work on building up your Sparkpeople friends list for support. Feel free to add me as a friend :D Good luck!

Hi! I'm a 48 year old female and I've been heavy most of my adult life. Have decided its time for a change as my knees are starting to really bother me and I'd rather grow old and die with my hubby than leave him alone. Also I have a BEAUTIFUL 6 year old grand daughter that has made me promise to dance at her wedding so.....any points, hints etc would be appreciated! Thanks!
