I joined 8 months ago and have to tell you, SparkPeople works!
I see you have made your sparkpage! Way To Go!!
Now, have you joined your Class Team? This is very important because you will be with other people that are joining SparkPeople this week and you will learn about everything available here.
And a really good friend of mine is the Leader and she can show you how she lost more than 50 lbs! Her name is Jennifer and the team is here www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_i ndividual.asp?gid=23205
