Hi Judith, I know right now it might be a little overwhelming for you as there is a lot to learn on Spark People. Please be patient and take one day at a time. Honestly, it took me months before I even set up my page and for the first year I didn't understand how/why people wanted to earn SP points. Now, I know a lot more, after 3 years I should . Losing weight doesn't happen fast and neither did we gain it all quickly. It does take eating healthy and moving more. Even 10 minutes of exercise a day helps us to feel and look better. After you get to know more about Spark People it's good to set one or two things you want to change such as drinking more water and exercising 10 minutes a day or more. Baby steps at first until you learn more. . .if you have any questions please let me know. I'm here to support & help you if I can. Take very good care of yourself!
