SparkPeople is a great place to get support and to pay it forward as well.
Start slowly. Explore the tools on this site and find what works for you.
Many people find that starting slowly is good for motivation--Choose a couple specific goals (counting calories, or getting enough water, or exercising a certain number of minutes) and make them solid habits. Then add a couple more.
After you've been around a bit, I'd also encourage you to set up a SparkPage and blog. It's a nice place to give updates and share the ups and downs in your journey. Maybe find one or two SparkTeams that have actively participating members, too.
If you have any questions, be sure to ask. We're all in this together.
Take care and enjoy the journey!
