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. -- J. London
So glad you are here! YOU are soooooo worth the effort! Take the time to look around, learn the tools, find teams that interest you and take good care of yourself. All that is here will become routine in no time.
to SparkPeople!! Cathy

Hi, I too am trying again , not new to sparkpeople but have found it difficult to stick with the program,But this is my first time in a chat. I have lost both my parents at young ages and i would like to live to be 80. At my current weight and health I don't have a chance unless I do something about it now! I just finished reading the Spark, and Know i can do this! My brother too has weight issues and has started a weight lifting program, he is doing so well it has sparked me to change my life also. I started walking in March and have walked every day for 91 days, my goal is to get my walk in every day for 365 days. I can do it . I don't miss I have made it as important as brushing my teeth, this must be done! I am starting with just setting small goals and see how this can help me. Thanks for having this site.
