Hi and wecome, Sparks is very user friendly, just wander around the site and you'll get the hang of it.
If you go to your start page in the drop down under My Tools towards the bottom of the start page you will see My spark diet,and that will take you through the whole procedure. Message Boarding is easy just join up and jump in. We're all very friendly and have all been where you are now so are very empathetic.

Welcome. As you can tell, we are an uptight team, very dedicated to a strict set of rule. LOL. This is a great team, good support, lots of fun. Keep in touch and you will get to know some of the wonderful people here.

Welcome Maria to the At Goal and Maintaining team, happy to have you here. All I know about rules is to look and see if there is a topic already started along the same subject line then add to it rather than starting a new one. Rules are lose and polite. We Love Sparks! Skeeter

Welcome to the team! I love this team and I hope you will too. You can reply to any message board or create a new topic like you just did (and for an introduction you did the right thing). If you have a question that doesn't relate to a message board already created, create a new one. You can't make mistakes so don't worry. Be a part of the team by joining team goals (down at the bottom of the team page), reading member blogs, and replying to message boards. It's so great to meet you!
Currently maintaining 120 to 125 pounds for nearly a year!

I don't know if they have rules about new thread versus existing thread (some communities are more up-tight about that than others)... I'm relatively new here, too, and nobody slapped my hands for starting my own intro post!
So, that said, good to have you along for the journey!

Okay hi, my name is Maria and I actually don´t understand whether I am supposed to create a new topic myself, or just post my message somewhere else. I am new to this! Anyway, I´m glad I have joined the team, although I´m still trying to figure out how exactly to be part of it! I´m sorry if I´m doing this all wrong!
