Hello and welcome to Sparkpeople. I hope you enjoy this website as much as I do. I would suggest you join a few teams that interest you and check their message boards daily. You can always withdraw from the team if you find it really doesn't interest you. It can take a little bit of time to get used to the website, don't give up. I also suggest under the Message Boards tab, you check out Sparkpeople Café and the Sparkpeople game room. There are a lot of fun running posts on these message boards. Be kind to yourself. Take it one day at a time. Expect set backs and just ride them out. You can do this . Good luck on your journey.
