Welcome to Spark! Set a small goal for yourself and once you master it, choose another. It's kinda like a snowball effect. I recommend starting at the link below:

Those who only talk about it are usually passed up by those who are quiet & actually doing it. Life's a climb but the view is great.

You just need to jump right in and start navigating around the site. Set up your spark page and join some teams that interest you. I believe there's a team or two dedicated to weight watchers which could be a good place for you to get extra support. There's tons of information here - I have found the articles to be spot on. Good luck!

Hi all, I am a rookie to Sparkpeople. I did read about it in a magazine and than my daughter told me about it the other day. I'm going to give it a try and see how it works. I am currently using Weight Watchers which is going well. This site seems to have a lot more tips and information. It also seems like a lot to take in. I'm hoping it'll be easy to learn to navigate this site. I also use my WII for my exercise routines. I live in a suburb of Chicago and so far we've been pretty lucky with the weather. I am 47 yrs old and have three grown daughters. Wish me luck
