Hi and welcome to SparkPeople, you’re going to love it here! Surround yourself with supportive people and you CAN achieve your goals! A good way to become familiar is through your SparkPoints page that can be accessed through the Tools menu item. Click on the action links and earn SparkPoints along the way. SparkPoints allows you to purchase virtual gifts for yourself and the friends you meet along the way.
Browse the entire website and be sure to check out the SparkPages of your team members or people who post on the Member Boards – you can find all sorts of SparkTeams listed which may give you some ideas of the teams you’d like to join. One of my favorites is the QuickFire SparkTeam. There is a daily fitness challenge that is designed to fit into a very busy day, even at work!
I am the leader of the Business Professionals team which is designed for busy people who get together to find innovative ways to fit their nutrition and fitness into their hectic lives. Feel free to visit my team and my SparkPage.
I started June 2007 and by using Spark and some self discovery in the process, I'm down 25 pounds, and am holding steady at a healthy weight. Spark is a massive site, you'll be discovering new and exciting things for at least two months! Good luck and I hope you'll embrace a healthy new invigorating lifestyle.
