Guten morgen, Janey! I'm so glad that you chose SparkPeople. Of the online communities I looked at, SparkPeople gives the most options for sustainable personal change. You choose what to share, when to share. Your team choices have variety to match your current space - and that's another part of SparkPeople I enjoy: the freedom to look or to observe in the background.
I was away from SP because I found my internet connection too slow to benefit from the program. In the age of broadband, it was worth for me to return. As KHFOUR spoke of "accountability", I agree. Because SparkPeople presents tracking options for the fundamentals of weight management, I see the challenges on the start page each day: nutrition, activity, mood, knowledge, community.
Do take care -- and when you are ready, let us know how we, the SparkPeople community (as family) can encourage and celebrate your progress.

Welcome to Spark!
There is so much to see and do here on these wonderful pages. Plot out a few hours of time that you can sit down and visit some of the great boards here. There is so much motivation, support, and friendship here that success is here for the taking. I am still discovering the many wonders of Spark and will no doubt continue to do so for much longer.
Enjoy the Blogs, the boards, the success stories, they are the cornerstones of your success. Keep tracking, keep posting, keep making friends, they are the ones to keep you accountable.
Read everything, ask questions, make friends!
Enjoy the Journey! This is the start of your new You!

I just stopped on your page to say "HI" and welcome you to Spark. You're in the right place to reach your goals, but promise that you'll stop in every day and log your water, log your veggies and fruit, log your food, log your exercise, and read, and post, and log your water, and write on someoneís page, and read some more, and blog, and log your water, and LEARN that you are not alone, and we're all right here with you! Did I mention that you should log your water?
WHEW! Ok, I know you're overwhelmed getting to know this site, but use those buttons up there, especially the MY TRACKERS drop down list, and then either the START or MY SPARKPOINTS. Both of these helped me learn about the site, gain momentum and meet new friends.
Speaking of meeting new friends, this place is like a cocktail party. If you stand in the corner, you won't have as much fun. Make eye contact (or in this place, leave a message on someone's page, or add your opinion to the bazillion conversations going on) to say HI, and you'll meet new friends quick. Oh, yeah, WRITE A BLOG, let me know when youíve posted it, and keep them coming! Itís the catchy title that brings folks to your page and you'll meet new friends even faster!
Stick around and come back every day! I was here, and left, and came back when I got serious, and I'm so glad I did. Don't procrastinate like I did, dig in now while you're here!
Coming here every day adds a great level of support and accountability. Explore, learn, and never be afraid to reach out for help (meaning: post on the OTHER personís page, not on your own). We're all in this together! Stop by at my page and introduce yourself around to some of my friends too! You'll be glad you did!
Doing it together, success is inevitable!
