SRINAT and to SparkPeople and the team challenge...Nice to have you with us on the journey to a healthier lifestyle. Near the top of this page you will see a tab labeled HEALTHY LIFESTYLE, roll over it and select Videos covering various aspects of the site that will be important to you, i.e, nutrition tracker, fitness tracker etc. Be patient there's a lot to learn but each area will teach you something new that will help you on your journey.
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.
Mistakes are the portals of discovery.
Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.
It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Hi, SRINAT- I spent two months on thise web site just looking around and trying to figure it out. I think it is very confusing! After two months, I figured I knew enough to join and start losing. I have chosen not to establish a Spark Page, which seems to make taking advantage of certain things more difficult or impossible. I entered my measurements and basic info and started printing a ton of recipes. I track EVERYTHING I eat and have joined a few challenges, which are very helpful. Your "START" page and "SPARK POINTS" page may help you a little bit. Determination and Patience Required!
Welcome! And yes the website is a bit overwhelming at first. Well truthfully, sometimes it still is for me because there are so many nooks and crannies on this site to discover, all good, by the way.
You can post on anybody's spark page, if it's a public page. They will respond on your spark page. It's not like facebook, where you leave a comment and get a notification for every comment that comes afterwards.
If someone writes on your spark page, you must provide your response on their page, not yours because they won't see it.
If you read a blog and want to leave a comment, you do it on the blog page and the blogger will respond on your spark page.
I recommend you join teams that share your same interests, it's an easy way to make friends. There are many teams to choose from. Feel free to check out the teams on my page to give you an idea. You can also look under the community subtitle for sparkteams in order to view the endless list.
You can also go take a look at some video tutorials to assist you. Please feel free to ask me anything on this forum or by spark mail, your choice. You're going to like it here! Cheers!
Kiss my pounds goodbye! I'm going DOWN baby!

I'm finding the site very busy and I'm not really sure what I'm supposed to do, where to post, or how this works. I thought this was the place to go for help but it looks like people are posting about their goals and challenges. Where do I go for help with using the site?
