You've come to the right place. Take it one step at a time - the site can be overwhelming at first. The new members guide will help you get started. Follow it at your own pace.
My favorite things here, besides all the awesome people, are the food and fitness trackers. If you make them your best friends for awhile, you're bound to see results.
It's a good idea to set up your Spark page so people can come visit and get to know you. Also, join a team or two for mutual accountability and get active in the community. They say you're more successful in reaching your goals if you do!
Let me know if I can help - I'm just a Spark Mail away!

WELCOME TO SPARK!!! 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! *~ Paula *~

Sparking is all about creating healthier lifestyles and is not a quick fix. In fact, it's more of a journey than a destination. So take it slow making gradual changes, ones that are reasonable and sustainable for the long run - permanent changes that will lead to permanent results. Here's an article you may find helpful in getting started.
You are on your way.... friend interesting people and get to know how they succeeded. You are so welcome to get the great information and support. Count on your spark team and community team members. You + Spark people = success.
