emoticon Hello there and emoticon to Spark People and to our team!

What I love on Spark People is that the support is unlimited! You need motivation, read up on the success stories and/or post a query and someone will be there to help you along. It is always difficult to start something new but Spark People make it so easy for us all to achieve our ultimate goals. Take it step by step: a) study the site, b) incorporate good habits from the beginning, c) start exercising, etc.

As co-leader of this team I recommend that you check out the following link. This will inform you as to what is available to you on Spark People. Very useful ... It will actually help you get set up on SP.

Good luck on your journey and if you need help at any point, just drop me a line and I'll get back to you pronto. emoticon

Hi Brenda, so glad to have you here and we are here to support you and cheer you on. Make sure you use the food and fitness trackers. They are the key. And the best part is you quit smoking. That iss the best thing you have done for you!!!!!
Stop by the Daily ChT and get to know the group.

Welcome to Sparkpeople. Be sure to take advantage of all the great free online sources available here, such as the nutrition and fitness trackers. Also, the online community is great. We are all here to offer support when you need it, or celebrate your successes with you.

Here are some links that will help you navigate the site and get started!

* SparkPeople's User Guide:

* New Member Tutorial Videos:

* For Additional Motivation:

Take this first week to familiarize yourself with the tools here. Once you get used to using them, it becomes easier to use them even when you are busy. Personally, I spent my first week learning to use the tools, and just tracking everything I was already eating and doing for exercise. It gave me a baseline to work from. It also gave me a chance to really decide what my goals were, and how to get there.

This site can only provide the support and the tools to reach these goals. You need to put the hard work in. Personally, I end up kicking my own butt every day. Feel free to check out my blogs to see how I kick my butt out the door to get my fitness in. I can tell you, once I am finished with my exercise for the day, I feel great. No more I should do this and I should do that. Instead, I feel accomplished, and able to relax and enjoy the rest of my day.

You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

Hi, I joined on Jan.18th but was shy to communicate. I need to lose 35-40 pounds and I quit smoking 2 weeks ago. I'm having trouble staying with the diet, get the munches after supper but doing a lot of exercise so have stayed at the same weight. Think I need to reach out and get committed here.
