Greetings to you all as well!
I've been on this site since the end of August and it does have more to offer than Body Media. I find this site to be more fun and informative. Spark does have plenty to offer.
I've been with Jenny Craig for the last 2.75 years and I have been stuck on a "plateau" for the past 9 months.
Before that, I was a lifetime member @ WW got to the same stopping point, I started to gain my weight back and then some. Ugh! I am now fighting my way back.
I have not been at a healthy weight for the past 10 years since I won my fight against colon cancer and MRSA.
I am now enrolled in a non surgical barriatric weight loss program. I want to be at a healthy weight.
Hi and welcome to the team. SP has lots to offer. Take advantage of all the free tools and enjoy the journey.

Hi 8 and welcome to Spark and the Team!
Here is my best advice - not complicated and from the heart: 1) Use your Nutrition Tracker faithfully, every single day, and print out the daily report on that page so you can make sure you are getting the proper balance of fats, carbs, and protein. This will keep you honest and accountable for your choices. Checking your report each day is critical - you want to make sure you are getting the right % of nutrients and not just eating empty calories. Remember, it is possible to stay within your calorie range eating "junk" but that isn't going to promote weight loss and it certainly won't maintain it in the long run .; 2) Find a few exercises/activities you actually ENJOY doing and then do them 3-4X a week. If you like what you are doing the chances are much better that you will stick with it ; 3) Stay active with your Team(s) because this is the place you will get encouragement, motivation, and support - including hugs on those days when things are especially tough! and; 4) Try to have fun with this journey to slimness and better health! It's a given that if you enjoy something you will stick with it!
One last thought: it isn't important how fast or slowly you lose your weight. This is one area where 'slow and steady wins the race' is more then just some old cliche. Spark teaches you a new lifestyle and you need time to re-educate yourself and develop a new relationship with food.
The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. Philippians 4:6 TLSB

You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.
After many years of wishful thinking,(wishing it all go away) I'm finally DOING something about my health. I'm looking forward to all the help with the challenges ahead. I haven't seriously dieted since my 20's. It should be interesting to say the least.
