Log in to SP every day and go immediately to Sparkpoints to spin the wheel, then enter your food, exercise and other goals for the day. Then read encouraging blogs from others and you've started the day right.
Seeing your weight go down and your Sparkpoints go up is a great motivator.
To get the most out of Sparkpeople every day and make it a game and a competition with yourself, try to get at least 100 sparkpoints a day. This usually means doing all or almost all of the things needed to get SparkPoints and will have you interacting in every part of the site. It will also give you quick links to all the areas of the site! This works for me!
One thing you can do to help you get used to SparkPeople is to go to My Tools at the top left side of the page. Move your cursor over it and a drop down menu appears. Find My SparkPoints toward the bottom of the column. From there you can see all of the ways to earn SparkPoints. By clicking any of these choices you can not only earn SparkPoints but also learn about different aspects of SparkPeople and what it has to offer.
Read an insider tip, write a blog, read SP blogs and articles, track your food and fitness, search the web, make an appointment, leave a message on the message board, look for a sparkrecipe to try out, track other goals, update your status, etc.
