Welcome aboard. One you start page should be a getting started link. It will help you figure out how many calories you need. You can probably also go to the Nutrition Tracker for help as well. Let us know what else we can do to help.

Welcome! I think that's why I love Spark People so much. The program is tailored to you and where you are right now. if you plug in your information, current weight, goal weight, when you want to reach that goal and how much you are willing to exercise, SP will calculate your calories for you. It's in stages so you start slowly and build through each stage. You can also talk to your doctor (which I would do anyway just to make sure you are ok to exercise) for help with your particular health issues.
