Hey Nicole and everyone,
Thanks so much for your replies...(Nicole, we are the same age..think I might wander over to the 30 somethings team in the future, well before I turn 40 ofcourse,he,he)
I was kind of thinking...it seems like I'm backwards or something. I've been reading the articles and checking out the features but not posting or tracking much. Oh well, there's no right or wrong way to use this site.
This does feel so supportive. I am not alone and can actually feel you all going thru the same stuff and helping/encouraging each other. I think I'm gonna really like it here. So exciting!!
Oh, I put my SparkPage together and it was fun. Such a sense of accomplishment doing little things here and there on this website. Yeah, I am a bit overwhelmed but am also enjoying how awesome this all is. Makes me wish I had found my way here sooner. But I'm here now and want to make the best of it and encourage others too.

Well this site does have so much to offer, but you don't need to 'see' it all at once... take your time, decide what you want from the site, and focus on that first... like tracking food and fitness... if you can log in to track just those 2 things daily, woohoo, then you can try to read an article, post a question/comment/etc... I limit my teams to those I really connect with, and those that have regular posters so I don't get overwhelmed trying to just keep up.

Momborch, this is a great team and website. The first two weeks, I tried to look at something new everyday and I'm still finding things! I've made a lot of friends on this chat (you can add people you talk to or relate to as friends on your Spark Page). Take a look at mine or someone else's to get ideas. If you're unsure of something, just ask us! I feel the same way Jana does, I don't feel all alone with this "thread" as they call it. Come often and tell us how you are doing! -- judi

Momborch. Kudos to you for taking on home schooling. I have thought about several times because I am very dissatisfied with my son's public education, but I am too much of a chicken to try it out. And maybe too lazy!

I am a member of 3 spark teams, but this one is pretty much the only one that has any traffic. So be aware, that depending on which other teams you join/keep the traffic won't necessarily be as high as it is here!

I am finding that interacting with this team is making me feel less isolated, as a person, than I was two weeks ago.

Chin up and keep trying.

Oops, sorry, I put this post on a wrong thread. he,he ,lol...here goes again.

Hi Marilyn,
Thank you for your suggestions..I will try to make that sparkpage. I actually tried already but for some reason it didn't take. But I will try it again.
I do think this website is really awesome, though. I just don't want to feel overwhelmed (which is easy for me to get). I just need to make sure that I'm not getting carried away with being online too much.
I have so many other things to do and try to stay on top of. I am a homeschooling mom and have 5 kids so it gets busy.
That is why I need support, cuz I sometimes can't focus to good with so many other things on my mind like chores, home school, bills, etc...
I will do my very best cz I need to lose like 45lbs and improve my health overall.

Please don't let it get you down - this is truly a great website - a lot of people with dial up are using it - and are successful in what they are achieving re weight loss.

So let's help you get started - slowly.

1st:
Make up a sparkpage - this will enable you to see the groups that you belong to - and will also enable other members of sparks to come and encourage you.

2nd:
Post as often as you can here and on any other group that you feel you can do fairly regularly. After you get your sparkpage up you will see the groups you are a members of - if there are too many of them for you at this time - then go to the ones you don't feel up to taking part in at this time and delete your membership from them - keep only the ones you will participate on.

3rd:
Use the meal tracker and the fitness tracker.

And come and post, post, and post again asking questions, sharing how you feel at the time and just sharing whatever - each time look around a little - read a motivational artical each day.

Don't give up - take it one day at a time

Does anyone feel this way? I am really somewhat overwhelmed with all the features on this website?
I guess I am just starting with the fast break goals (which I already feel like I lost track of that) and have been reading articles. Just got started with posting to this one message board of the SP class of January/Feb...That's another thing, there are so many different message boards and teams. What makes it more overwhelming for me in particular is this lousy dial-up I'm stuck with. I definitely have to limit myself to this message board and maybe one other.
Gosh, I want to use all the neat features but I don't know..it seems kinda time consuming and a little cumbersome to keep trying to track it all.
Any suggestions or comments would be so helpful.
So far, this team rocks. You guys made me feel welcome right away.
