Here is your Getting Started Guide: http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/get_s tarted.asp
These New Member Tutorial Videos are very helpful: http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motiva tion_articles.asp?id=571
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.

Hi! I'm new here too. Nice to meet you. You sound like you know what you're doing.
Greetings from Coolmom83! I am most excited about joining sparkpeople and continuing my lifelong journey toward better health, improved fitness, and excellent quality of life. I love interacting with people, spending time with my family and friends, and also want to be able to do things that I used to take for granted, such as running 5 to 8 miles a day. I have been struggling with my weight for a while and now know that hypothyroidism is the root of all evil! (While I may joke about this condition sometimes, it is very serious and has serious side effects.) I am determined to take control of my health and fitness and get my life back! This site has already been a blessing to me as I restart on this quest for quality of life, and I am looking forward to this new journey as I move forward. I want to learn as much as I can about success in how to manage my health and weight with this condition, and in doing so, hopefully, I can pass on knowledge to others. I have already lost 4 lbs. just using the tracker. Now I have about 25 more to go! I want to keep it off this time, for good.
