Welcome to Spark! It can seem overwhelming when you first join; there are so many tools to use here, and so much you can do!

I recommend starting with the Welcome guide
to help familiarize yourself with how it all works.

My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in hospice care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

Hi there,

I'm new to this and have a daunting 7/8 stone to lose. There's soooo much information I don't know where to start.

I am from the UK and one of my worries is that food tracker won't be synchronised to our diet here. Also a little unsure about the calorie count as supposed to have 1600 a day at current weight does anyone else have this issue?

Anyway stressed and daunted but determined to lose this weight someone. I'm sick of feeling like I'm dragging another person around with me is very depressing :(.
