Hey JEWELYTEACH welcome to SparkPeople and the Portland team! Congrats on your success thus far - boo on the plateau, I think we've all been through at least one at some point!
Curiosity is good, if you have questions feel free to come and ask - if we don't know the answer we'll certainly be able to point you in the right direction. I understand feeling intimidated a bit as well. Once you get to know the site, and make a few friends, you'll become more comfortable and confident and will be an old hand at Sparkin' in no time.

A lady in my workout class at the gym told me about Sparkpeople. I'd never heard of it before. Lost 25 lbs on weight watchers, but hit a plateau after awhile and just couldn't seem to get back on board. I'm impressed with this site so far. Have about 40 more lbs to lose, so a long way to go but am hoping to find both strength and inspiration to do it this time.
