  • I LOVE using Spark!! Before I found this site I was liteally walking blind. Since joining this site not only do I keep myself accountable on what I eat and how I exercise, I have found that the support I get from my fellow team membes helps me a lot. I usually go to my SparkPoints and just scroll down and do each one as I get to it. This not only helps me plan my day but reminds me of what I need to do for my health every day.

    I was really overwhelmed with all the information, blogs, messages, tracking, etc. Even though there was sooo much good information it felt inundating. I almost gave up and said, I don't have time for this. But I stuck in there and just figured with so much information it is going to be a process. Be patient with myself. There's no time limit. Do as much or little as my time permits. Now about a month after getting active I can do my daily routine so much quicker. Get through so much information in shorter amount of time. It's still a learning process though. Probably for a while longer yet to find where all the jewels are. I can not tell you how glad I am that I stuck with SparkPeople site. (A goal accomplished just in itself - sticking with something). I have made so many encouraging caring friends. The information has been life altering. MY ADVICE...HANG IN THERE. YOU WON'T REGRET IT! emoticon Thank you everyone!! emoticon - by ADMIST5711

    This is the perfect Secret! This is what I did and it saved me from being hopelessly lost and confused. However I could not figure out Sparkgoodies except to give them to myself LOL! Then later I figured out how to delete the ones to myself. I kept the vacation that cost so much though! - by SUGARBEHONEYPIE
