Hi Marguerite, have you found your nutrition tracker yet? It is the most important thing you can do to lose weight. If you don't do anything else, do that. It really works.
After you log in with your password, you would automatically open up in the startup page, it has shortcuts to most of the important places on this site. Then go to My Nutrition, and you will see an option for spark's meal plan, or create your own. I like to create my own because we don't have many of the things they put on it in The Lowveld. Then you just follow the options and add everything you eat. If it is not listed you look for something similar. Ask Sheila how to add something from your own recipies, I have not figured it out yet, I just add everything in it separately. If you are super good you can weigh it, or estimate. Then you just need to keep the calories between the margins Spark has for you.
After a days tracking Spark will give you a report about how many cals from carbs, protein etc with tips and feedback.
Easy as eating pie.

Sheila replied to your post, so you can just click on it to go to her page and talk. But if you do reveal personal info like your email adress or nr, I would stick it in a sparkmail. It is an option in your start menu.
You will get links to everybody on this teampage on some of the older posts. So get reading and get talking- lots of fun out there.

Hello Marquerite!
Spark is just the place where you will get all the help you need. Just USE the nutrition and fitness trackers. And enjoy your wedding- it is a crazy time where you learn a lot about yourself, your spouse and about his family.
Keep your sense of humour and when it gets to much and you want to eat to feel better, go on the Sparksite first.
Where do you live? Western Cape?
Our teamies Heilas and Sheila and Rochiez live there.
Heilas is a real lady, she's at goal and she knows a lot about marriage and love. Rochiez is our local foodie, and Sheila is very good at ballroom dancing among other things. (Limiting myself to wedding related topics)
You will have such fun
Lets talk lots.
