Be sure to set up your nutrition tracker and follow the guidelines Sparkpeople gives you. It is important to eat a balanced diet with adequate calories (yes, if you don't eat enough, you will not lose weight). The website will give you a range of calories each day. Eat well while losing weight by eating within that range. Likewise, you should follow the guidelines for carbohydrates, protein, fat, water, fiber, etc.
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
