Hi, Susan. Welcome to Sparkpeople & the Calling All Canadians team. This site is amazing for both the resources and people. You gotta work at those goals, but you will find the results are so worth it.
Hello and !! My name is Angela and I have been on this site since June 2012. Congratulations on taking your first steps to a brand new you and a new weight loss experience where you are supported by en entire community of like-minded people. This website is dedicated to helping people who want a healthier lifestyle including issues with eating healthy and exercising, as well as support forums where we talk about specific issues.
I recommend reading through the Getting Started Guide at this link: www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/get_star ted.asp
To find a team for everyone that joined the program the same week as you, go to SparkTeams and then select SP Class and your week. You will have a mentor running the team, so you will have some guidance and be amongst people starting the same week you did. Makes a good place to find a support buddy.
So welcome and enjoy! If you have questions, you can always reach out and send me a SparkMail, or stop by my SparkPage at the link below. We can do this together, with encouragement and support from others, and SparkPeople has really great resources for any kind of workout or condition!
Welcome, Welcome, Welcome, and Enjoy! Angela www.sparkpeople.com/mypage.asp?id=ANGRIT TER Sparker since 06/18/12 Co-leader of Living with Rheumatoid Arthritis Disease Team
