Howdy and welcome to Spark People. This is indeed one huge support group. The trackers and information and experts are all great but I wouldn't have stuck with it so long without the help of my Spark Friends. So get your Page up and running, blog about your journey, post on the Boards often and be sure to reply to other members' posts with encouragement and support, cuz that will likely help you as much as it helps them! Get Sparking!
