Welcome to Spark People and to the HBP team, LUKAWSKI8 ! Do you have any specific questions about setting things up? There are some helpful links here, in the "Need Some Help?" forum. Using the nutrition tracker may seem complicated, but keep in mind that you don't always need total precision -- for instance, searching on "baked beans" will likely give you a lot of entries that will be close enough to enter into your tracker, without needing the specific brand or recipe. And in many cases, you will find the exact item, if it's a commercial product -- you can always work on adding your own recipes gradually.
There is a lot of information to be found on the SP site, and the community support is great, so join some teams that interest you (under the "community" tab above, click on "spark teams") and jump in on the discussion boards. Take one day at a time, and don't expect to be perfect -- we are here for you!
