Hi, Teri! I am so sorry you are starting the year with the flu! Dang! Since the heart of Spark People is not dieting, getting started means focusing on your health and taking care of yourself. You can sure get acquainted with the trackers, read articles, look over the Challenges, read some of the strategies and stages material you get at the start, set up your Spark Page and maybe join a Team or two. I suggest you read The Spark, the book the founder wrote. He really captures what is different about this program from the "diet" programs. Start small, baby steps, very achievable goals with time frames and rewards for success before you move on to the next. It is so doable! Lifestyle change is the key, not dieting. Good luck and get your Spark ON!
You’ll get where you want to go as long as you are taking more steps in the right direction than the wrong one.
