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.

Hello all,

Well, I'm not new to SparkPeople but I am trying again. I am fatter than I've been in a long time. I've had a difficult few years first with losing my job, health problems and family tragedies, among other things. Food is something that I've turned to for much of my life to deal with all of my emotions (boredom, sadness, anger, loneliness to name a few). I have had an especially bad week this week, eating out at fast food restaurants every day this week just because. I engage in this behavior despite having a grandmother that died of diabetes, and suffering with high cholesterol myself. I feel very unhealthy and want to do something about it which brings me here. I've never had a child so there really is no reason for me to look the way I do. I'm hoping to make some connections on SparkPeople and finally overcome this demon that has haunted me for so long.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.
