All of ANGELCITYGAL's recommendations are awesome! There are so many great resources here! I recommend starting with the nutrition/food tracker because that's the key element in weight loss for most people (especially when you have other health issues). Then, once you're comfortable with tracking your food on a daily basis, start exploring more areas of this site. I still find something new here almost every day. By tracking everything since May 2011 and using the other features here to keep myself focused, I lost 90 pounds and have maintained that loss for almost a year now. It takes a little bit of time, but it is sooooo worth it!

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

The SparkDiet Overview explains how the nutrition program here works:

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.

Hi all,

I am a little hesitant but glad to have landed here. I had pretty much lost hope in ever losing weight and getting healthy. After reading some of the success stories I thought maybe there is a chance for me. I have many health challenges some self inflicted because of how I have taken care of myself and others just because. I hope that eventually I might be an encouragement to others.
