Maha, look to the left of this comment - you see my picture?
Click on my picture and it will bring up MY spark page. Then look to the top right of MY page and you will see several boxes - one says "Add to My Friends"
When you click on that it will add me to your friends listing. You can add me and anyone else you want to your friends list. Adding friends has nothing to do with sparkmails so don't let that bother you.
The only reason you would get that message about sparkmails is because so many of the new members never made a sparkpage and are not accepting any emails or sparkmails. I don't know why some people are so afraid to get them - but you can come to my page whenever you want and you can sparkmail me whenever you have a question.
Hello and Welcome to Sparks. Congrats on making this first step to getting healthy. Here, you will recieve lots of info on how to change your life for good. There also is many sparkers waiting to welcome you and encourage you while you are on this journey. Don't let this place overwhelm you. It will take a couple of weeks to really feel like you know what you are doing. The most important thing I can say to you is NEVER GIVE UP. No matter how many times you may fall, just pick yourself up and keep going. Find teams that will meet your needs. Then post everyday. This will help keep you accountable. Find those who have lost the weight. I like hanging out with them because they did it. If you need anything just let me know. If I don't know the answer I will help find it.
