Thanks AngelCityGal! I will take a look at these items you suggested. I really hope to find a bond with people here! I am interested in finding a team challenge. I live in CO and signed up for a program called "Weigh and Win" that is offered here. They provide some motivational guidance and if you lose a % of weight each quarter you can earn some cash. I earned $45 having lost my 37lbs. Can't beat that! I was discouraged however about their team challenges. As you needed more than one person, I tried to sign up for a challenge with three teams. As you needed to be "accepted" by the team coach...I was disappointed that I was denied by all three I tried to get into! Sigh.

Here is your Getting Started Guide:
http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/get_started.asp

These New Member Tutorial Videos are very helpful: http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motivation_articles.asp?id=571

I try to encourage new members to get active in the SparkPeople community! Join a Spark Team or two that match your interests. You will find it easy to get acquainted with folks on Spark Teams. For instance, you can select a Team of Sparkers in your city, or Sparkers who follow a particular food plan (vegetarians, low carb, etc.), Sparkers with a particular health concern, or Sparkers who share your hobbies. Another option is to set up your SparkPage and start blogging. Some folks use the Community Journals. Post a lot on the message boards, especially if you have successes or challenges. You'll soon find that you're connecting with many nice folks here.

This is a great, positive community! Iím glad youíre with us.

Thanks! I am glad to be here and I am worth it! :-) Today I went and walked around a local Farmer's market. Parked a few blocks away even though I could have parked closer. I love this time of year when fresh vegetables are available.

Hello everyone! I am new to SparksPeople. I created my account in April but haven't started looking at or utilizing the site until now. I've been on an emotional roller coaster for a couple months. Hit at a plateau but haven't gained. I started my weight loss journey about a year ago and have lost 37 lbs. FINALLY out of the 200's! Whohoo! I currently weigh 195 and have a goal of 135 - 145. A long way to go but know I can do it. Just got to get a back on track. I am excited to be here as everyone seems so supportive and it sure helps when you have others to share the journey.
