ANY time is a great time to start...especially with Sparkpeople. Give yourself a big hug for making this positive choice for yourself. Take your time to explore all the resources available for you here. It can seem overwhelming because there are so many resources to choose from. Two to consider using are the Nutrition and Fitness Trackers. Also, check out Spark Teams under the COMMUNITY Tab. Do searches on your goals, interests, hobbies, whatever. Then join one, two or more Spark teams. You'll enjoy getting to know these folks and giving and getting lots of encouragement along the way. It's all good. Enjoy the journey!
Hi! Welcome to SP! This is a great site - lots of resources and great people ready to support and encourage you!
You're off to a great start - you've designed your page and joined some teams. So I'll just make a few suggestions...
Posting on the message boards of your teams is a great way to meet people and make friends that will help keep you motivated. Being active on the site helps keep you focused.
And the secret to success is consistency... Don't try to do too much all at once... pick a few things you can stick to, like tracking your food and exercising at least 15 minutes a day...then you can add more as you feel ready.
