Here is your Getting Started Guide:

These New Member Tutorial Videos are very helpful:

The SparkDiet Overview explains how the nutrition program here works:

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.

You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.

Changing my lifestyle is a challenge

Unless the Lord had given me help I would soon have dwelt in the silence of death. When I said, 'My foot is slipping' your love O Lord supported me. When anxiety was great within me your consulation brought joy to my soul (Psalm 94:17-19)

Hello, I am new to this. I would like to loose 20 lbs. Its gotten to the point that I can't do things like I use to. I am still very active when the weather is nice. But some times with job I can't really exercise. I just need the motivation. I sometimes have the thought of exercising then when I get home I just don't have the energy. And my eating habits have gotten worse also. Just need a little help. I don't have the money or the effort to join a gym. I am very self conscience I think that everyone is looking at me and talking about me and the things that I do.. I am a very picky eater. I like lots of vegetable and my meats. I need help with putting together a menu of the things I like to eat. And portion control is also a problem. If its good I keep eating. I am 50 years old and still like to work my garden, and flower beds. When I get started on something I just don't know when to quit. I try to stay on a bed time schedule but there is just so much to do, just not enough hours in a day.
