In my opinion, the best way to meet people is to join a team(s) that sounds interesting. There are lots of great teams; my favorites are Motivators and Sending Healthy Vibes (formerly Sending Skinny Vibes

emoticon You'll do great! One that I recommend for all new SparkPeople members is to get your hand on The Spark book- it helps put the whole program in perspective and it's a very inspiring quick read.

Need some motivation? Check out TEAM MOTIVATORS!

Co-leader for the Stay at Home Mom teams. We know you're busy, but Stay at Home Moms need love too.

emoticon Welcome to Spark. You have taken an important step on your journey by joining!
I've been a member a little over 3 years. I made fantastic progress and lost 100 pounds in the first year BUT I became careless about nutrition and exercise and have gained a lot of the pounds back! I became disgusted with myself and closed my Spark account, but soon realized I NEEDED to be here. I'm back using the nutrition and exercise trackers now - they are so important. The sense of community and the friendships I have made here keep me going!
Explore the site, make your Sparkpage if you haven’t, join teams, and make friends. You will find this site an amazing place full of encouragement, inspiration, advice, and support.
Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with.
Good luck!

I'm going to go check out your Spark page, but my first thing is thinking "can people see your Spark page?" and then the second thing is "join some teams" and just get into those daily chats on those teams and soon you will be picking up friends.
