emoticonemoticonemoticon WELCOME TO SPARK!!! emoticonemoticonemoticon
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!

emoticon and emoticon to Sparking, AGAYNES!

How great that you and your son have both joined SparkPeople so you can support and motivate each other as you work on being healthier and more fit!!

Have you seen SP's Nutrition Tracker video tutorial at

When adding a food are you checking off the box "Add the Food to my Favourites" which is just under the meal box before you "Add Food to Tracker"?

Here's a link to Nutrition Track Questions with answers from our technical experts which you may find helpful at:

Hope this helps. Wishing you the best as you work towards your goals!!!


Moving More! Eating Less!
Motivation gets you started, habit keeps you going!

Well I am a NOT a mature woman with a grown (almost) son! MY mom accidentally posted on my page! I am the grown son! lol. We both joined sparkpeople yesterday.
I am editing her post so it is actually me! Today is now day 3. So far have stuck to nutrition tracker except for a small addition of a juice bar. I will not weigh until a week has past. Mom and I are doing this together. She is planning the meals and figuring out the calorie count. She was a hospital nutritionist so she can do it pretty well. She says it is a lot of work! I hope to lose 20 pounds by beginning of august but she says that may not happen so fast. That's ok so long as I am losing/heading in the right direction!
