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!

At the top of the tool bar is MY TRACKERS. Click that and begin with START. Follow the instructions.
Take your time and work on it a little each day. Just DON'T QUIT. There is so much here at this site, and it takes time to deal with it all. Just go at an easy pace.

Don't quit. Most people do and they never improve on themselves when they do that.

I signed up for this a few days and no excuses, just didn't think about it again until just now. I really want to lose this weight. All of this is just so confusing to me. Can anyone give me a little bit of advise on how to get started.
