    Welcome to Fighting Fibromyalgia. Even if you haven't been diagnosed, if your symptoms are familiar to your mom, I'd go with it. It usually takes several years to be diagnosed by a doctor.

    In the meantime, take this test (it's the new diagnostic tool for fibromyalgia) and take it to your doctor. Maybe it will speed up the process.

    Hello there! We're happy that you have joined Spark People as well as the SP Class Nov. 14-20, 2010 Team. It's a wonderful place to be.

    First of all I wish to bid you emoticon as one of the co-leaders of this Team!

    Secondly, if you are not completely set up as yet, I strongly recommend that you check out the message entitled 'Help for the newbie' under Introduce yourself to Team Forum on our Team Page. Inside there you will find some links that will help you get set up in a jiffy with on the Spark People site. These links are very helpful because they help you understand the site better and get to see what is available to you.

    We're so happy to see you on board and if you need motivation, read up on the success stories that we have online. If these do not motivate you, nothing will... See you online! Many emoticon

    emoticon Greetings and emoticon

    I'm glad you're getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

    In my experience, SparkPeople is like a emoticon in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!


    If you ever need any help using features of the site, there are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site. You can also find them on the START page and several other places on the site.


    If you haven't discovered The Spark book and/or the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check them out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.


    Another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I do - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!
