Welcome to Sparkpeople.com, you will get a better responsie reposting this under the nutrition message boards.
My tips: Have a blast making your page as it is your fingerprint. Change it up & make it your own. Most of us use it as a form of expression and a major source of motivation for ourselves and others.
Definitely use the Nutrition tracker because it is demonstrative in forming healthy eating habits. Be sure to run a report it will give you valuable information to make choices in the future. Don't cheat yourself out of this vital information and the behavior modifying effect it will have on your eating. THE NUTRITION TRACKER REPORT IS VERY POWERFUL STUFF DON'T UNDERESTIMATE IT! Should you ever need support or have any questions, speak up we have more than our share of people who can help you.
Personally, SparkPeoople.com has had a very powerful influence on my eating habits. The improvement is profound primarily because of the articles and nutrition tracker. I really enjoy my Spark friends and teams also.
Enjoy your journey and getting healthier each time you Spark and Congratulations, HiketoHeights
