I recommend beginning by setting small goals - like tracking your calories consumed every day, 8 glasses of water a day, and/or at least 5 fruits/veggies per day. Maybe keep it at that for starters. If you do those 3 things, you'll start to see yourself making better choices right away, and likely see some progress.
Then work on calories burned, and commit yourself to tracking fitness minutes. Its very motivating for me! Start small if you aren't already exercising. My goal is to just keep improving - its about the journey not the destination.
I waited to start networking more and exploring the content on the site until I was a little more set in the other routines, and I'm really enjoying the support of all the great SparkPeople out there!
Later on, or sooner if you like, "friend" people who inspire you and you can strike up some good friendships and a super support team.
Its like anything in life - you get out of it what you choose to put into it, but baby steps are a great way to get started.
