found one of the messages I've seen - instead of steering you there, I've copied it and pasted it below. It was written by Spark Member who goes by Emmabe - she's one of the team leaders. Perhaps I should have asked her permission first but it was posted in an open forum so here goes:

Welcome to Sparkpeople, a fantastic weight loss and healthy living site.
This site is full of tools and information to help you succeed in your goals and to become the person you want to become.
Joining is only the first step in an exciting journey that will last the rest of your life

This site can be confusing, all the more so if one isnít American as all measurements are in their units
These links will help you in the first days that you are using the Sparkpeople site
Hopefully this will ease those first days, as well as helping those of you who have been members for a time, to get more from the site!!

And for those cookery recipes:
A great metric to US or US to metric cookery converter can be found at

and a temperature converter degrees to degrees or vice versa can be found at

But there are lots of other cookery conversion programs online!!

I actually am new to sparkpeople. I had an old account like 3 years ago, but I never used it because I wasn't serious back then. That would be really helpful! Thanks so much!

are you new to SparkPeople? If so, let me know. One of the women who post a lot in some of the other threads I follow, has often had a welcome note with lots of links to useful and helpful areas of this site and if you are new, I'll see if I can find one of her messages and let you know where it is so you can look it up to see if it will be of help to you. Let me know.

welcome Jaye - you should find lots of friends and support here. I love that we come from all over with different cultures and such, and are different ages but all with a common goal that bonds us.
