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!

By joining SP you made the first step on your journey to better health!
Tracking your nutrition and exercise/activities on the "my Nutrition" and "myFitiness" trackers is key to success. Familiarize yourself with it and use it daily. Also, get active! Join a SparkPeople team of your interest for great challenges to get you started. There is a team for everyone, no matter how much we weigh or what our physical abilities are. Team members offer an abundance of support, encouragement, and advice. I invite you to visit my SparkPage. I'm confident you will succeed in reaching your goals!

Hello and Welcome!
SP is an awesome site with everything you need to be a healthier you.
Members are supportive and helpful.
Are you tracking your food? Are you eating enough to compensate for the amount of exercise you are getting? If you aren't getting enough nutrition, your body could go into starvation mode.
If you aren't tracking your food and exercise, I would suggest using the Nutrition and Fitness tracker .
And if you haven't joined any Spark Teams, maybe join a few teams that interest you. It's a good way to stay accountable, motivated and make some new Spark friends.

Best of luck to you!
