I am glad you chose to pursue a healthy lifestyle with us!
SparkPeople can be a daunting and busy place for new members. I find the 'View SparkPoints' page is a good guide to make sure you hit all of the integral parts of the site on a daily basis. Also, the bottom of your Start Page is very important to follow the progress of the first 4 stages of the program.
WELCOME! Nice to have you with us! I love my Sparkworld, and so will you! Here are some tips to help you reach your goals: Use Your Spark Points (click on View SparkPoints) as a map to the site. It is a good way to learn your way around and you can send yourself or others Sparkgoodies. Go back to your Start Page if you get lost, you can get almost anywhere from there. Be sure to use the nutrition tracker. You can ensure you are getting the proper nutrients as well as tracking your caloric intake and this is so important to any weight loss journey. Never "diet" again! Keep focusing on living a healthier lifestyle. Read THE SPARK for guidance, motivation and inspiration! Log on everyday to stay focused! The online community on the site is wonderful! We are all here to offer support when you need it, or celebrate your successes with you. Any type of interest you have, there will be a Sparkteam for it! Enjoy the friendships. I have many wonderful friends from Sparkpeople! Stop by my Sparkpage anytime and let me know how you are doing, I would love to hear from you! Stay active in life. Think and stay positive! Enjoy your journey to a healthier YOU! Have FUN along the way!
