Did you know that SparkPeople members who use the Community features
(located under the "Community" tab at the top of the site) are more likely to lose weight than those who do not? It's true! In fact, in a recent survey, Community users lost more weight and stuck with the program longer than members who didn't utilize it at all.
The SparkPeople Community is a great place to find support as you work toward your goals. You can share your ups and downs with other members just like you, get advice from SparkPeople experts, and ask questions about your program. The Community has numerous features to offer, including message boards, SparkTeams, SparkPages and blogs. Whatever your interest or need, the SparkPeople Community can help you establish a healthy lifestyle and have fun along the way.
The easiest ways to get started in the Community are to:
1- Set up your own SparkPage
so others can learn more about you and add you as a friend.
2- Start posting on the message boards. A great way to start is to introduce yourself
3- Join a few SparkTeams
to interact with members with whom you have something in common.
All of these steps will help you find SparkFriends to support you through your journey. Check out this article
