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!

Hello JUD378 from next door in the Land of Oz! Welcome to SparkPeople!

There's something on this site for everyone, and part of the fun that I've had is discovering all that the site has to offer.

One of your first stops after the tutorial video should be the SparkTeams page. You'll find that under the Community section. There you can find a group of people to match almost any interest you might have. Not only are you not alone, but you are truly among friends.

I wish you all the best! Spark on!

Hi! Welcome to SP! This is a great site - lots of resources and great people ready to support and encourage you!

You're off to a great start - you've designed your page and joined some teams. So I'll just make a few suggestions...

Posting on the message boards of your teams is a great way to meet people and make friends that will help keep you motivated. Being active on the site helps keep you focused.

And the secret to success is consistency... Don't try to do too much all at once... pick a few things you can stick to, like tracking your food and exercising at least 15 minutes a day...then you can add more as you feel ready.

Just remember... emoticon

Blessings and emoticon Marge
