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. Put together your own Spark page. This is a great way to communicate with other members and build relationships that will support and motivate you. You can do this by going to the START page and the green section has something about your Sparkpage.

2. 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.

3. 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!

Debi Cat welcome to Sparkpeople. You have come to the right place. This is the best website. Everyone is very friendly and supportive. Lots of good information and useful tools to help you along the way.
Be sure to read the Getting Started Guide and take it from there. Join a few teams and become involved. This is where you will get most of your support and make friends too. You may also find reading the Success Stories very helpful too.
Good luck in reaching your goals. Together we will travel this weight loss journey and reach our goals too.

Hi everyone! I am fairly new here, signed up a while ago but didn't do anything at that time. So I am back to give this a try. I am not new to losing weight though. I follow Weight Watchers for over a year and lost 70 lbs. I was able to get off high blood pressure meds, am no longer diabetic and my blood numbers are back to normal. I have put 9 lbs back on and need to get it under control again and continue to my goal. I want to lose 43 more lbs so I am making myself accountable once again and decided to try using Sparkpeople.

I refuse to go back to where I was. Looking forward to get to know everyone.
