I was amazed when I figured out that I could set an exercise goal and that would effect my calorie intake and nutrition needs.

Welcome :)
I agree with Shdwlark, there are a lot of people here that will support you without the pretense of your past experiences with weight loss.
My favorite thing about this site is probably doing just this, being able to give people advice. I make myself comment and/or blog daily to keep me focused.
I also like getting those spark points and I'm not exactly sure why - haha - it's not like they're worth money but it's positive reinforcement and it works for me.
I really like your screen name!
Best wishes.

Sara

Welcome to the group! I think the biggest thing I see is the comorodity and support. to many of us have been pushed into the weight lose from others and we may not be getting the best support outside of online that we need.

Hello everyone, I am new to SparkPeople and I'm hoping you can help me out. I have been looking around the site for the past couple of days and I get the whole thing about tracking what you eat and tracking your exercise, but what I'm looking for are those little 'secrets' related to the site. What are some of the things that you've learned by being on here that made you say, "I didn't know you could do that!" when it comes to using this site. I'm just trying to get the most out of this wonderful site. Thanks for all the tips!
