Hi emoticon and congratulations on beginning your Spark journey!

There's so much here to help you along the way and excellent advice to setting and achieving healthy goals. With the thousands and thousands of fellow Sparkers you will always find someone you can connect with. I am always amazed how many lives have been changed for the better through the use of SparkPeople.

If you have not already done so, I suggest that you check out the videos in the "Healthy Lifestyle" section. Scroll down for the site orientation videos.

That should point you in the right direction. I find that if you just start looking around Spark, you will quickly learn about the wonderful tools available for your use. After being a Sparker since 2007, I still find something new and very useful.

Welcome and best wishes!

To both give and receive support, I suggest joining and participating in at least one Spark TEAM. When you signed up, SP offered you a "Spark Class" which is a team for the newbies who signed up the week you did.

I found this Spark Quiz loaded with useful information for newbies:

I have read a lot of the posts in this forum and have seen how sad people are. Well I hope that this website will help us. I am no expert at this, but my advice is to say at least 5 things you love about yourself, 5 things you love about your life and 5 healthy foods you love or have grown to love. I am doing this as well. Finding who we are and what we are capable of will be an awesome adventure. There may be disappontments, but I won't give up on myself! Hope you have a wonderful adventure in finding your lovely-self. emoticon
