Hi and welcome! If you haven't already, you may want to read the "Getting Started Guide" under the Site Quick Links section on the bottom right of the page. Most everything else you need to know about Spark is on the orange tabbed toolbar near the top of the page.

I use the Nutrition Tracker under the My Trackers tab to track everything I eat and drink - it really helps me see what I can change to get the best results. There are exercise videos for every fitness level under the Articles & Videos tab, and inspirational Success Stories under the Community tab that are very motivational. These are only a small sample of all the treasures Spark has to offer.

Spark is not a diet – it’s a lifestyle change. The idea is to make small changes, one or two at a time. Once those become healthy habits that your body is used to, add another change. That way, you won't become overwhelmed and the “baby steps” will result in healthy changes that will last a lifetime.

When you get a chance, you may want to set up a Spark Page of your own. That way, others can "friend" you, leave encouraging comments on your page, and send you a Spark Goodie now and then. It's a fun and motivational way to connect with others. Remember to "un-check" the box marked "private status" so that others can view your page.

I've found that I get a lot of support and encouragement from some of the teams I've joined that deal with specific interests and challenges I face. If you look under the Community tab on the orange toolbar and choose "SparkTeams" you'll find a team for most every hobby, interest, or medical condition. We're very glad to have you on the team!

Hi I'm 23 will be 24 in February my son just turned a year old on the 18th......and u still have most of the 52 lbs I gained with him to lose. It seems that its been near impossible for me to be motivated and lose the weight I mostly try to avoid mirrors ....and nice clothes :( I was never the ideal weight for my height but I looked a lot better 50 lbs ago .....I just hope this helps with motivation.
