WELCOME TO SPARK!!! Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time. A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.
1. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.
2. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.
The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family! *~ Paula *~

You have come to the right place. The best thing to do is to take your time and get used to the site and its layout, there is so much information that can take some time. Join some groups, set up a blog and start making friends and you will have lots of support. Remember you are not alone

I'm not completely new to SparkPeople, but I'm just getting back to my weight loss goals with the end of the holiday and new year. Since I've last been on SparkPeople I've gotten married :) -- I look forward to meeting new people that share a goal of losing some of those unwanted lbs!
