Welcome to the team! Am also returning to SP (been a non active for 3 years) for some support and help on getting back on track. The site is very overwhelming to me also, but decided to jump in and take it one day at a time. There is sooooo much great information, support and inspiration to help anyone looking. Great luck to your success on your goals. Am here if you need an ear or a message window to chat with.
I'm not new but I haven't been here in such a long time that I FEEL new :-) This site is a little overwhelming even though i have used it before. :-) I have to learn it all over again. Hopefully it will be like riding a bike.
Welcome to the team. This site can be overwhelming at first, take your time and explore a bit. There are a lot of good articles to help you learn more about fitness and healthy eating. Lots of good people to help support and encourage you and tools to help you see how you are doing and what you can change. If you have any problems or questions we are here for you!

Okay, go to your sparkpage and click on the EDIT sparkpage button
Along the right side will be a list of options that you can check - things like who can read your page, whether your activity tracker or food tracker will be public, etc. You can make those choices.
At the very bottom of your page will be an option about your TICKER click on edit my ticker to select a ticker, to show it, to show weight lost - there are a whole lot of other options for tickers - maintenance tickers, activity tickers, spark points ticker, busting bad habits, etc. Click on the ticker you want to show and click on the message at the top that says "Show my ticker on message boards and spark page. You can also choose a background and the icon you would like to display. It is easy to manage and pretty self-explanatory. There are options to add a signature that will appear on all of your messages. Your profile picture can be changed on this page etc.
Hope this was helpful
With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.
Hi, I just started joining a team and using the message boards. I've been using SparkPeople since September but get a little overwhelmed by the website, so I mostly just track on the mobile ap. I'm a school librarian, so I a couple weeks off to go a little deeper into the program. How do I make one of those timeline illustrations to show my starting weight and progress?
