Thanks Sue. Yes am trying to spend a little time each day checking out the site and commiting to filling out the trackers. Yikes it does kind of keep you accountable once you start entering the food in. Good luck on your journey too!!! Looks like you are making wonderful progress. Definitely inspiring!!!!!!

Welcome to SP. This is a great place to be. The more you navigate around the site the more you will learn. The #1 thing for me is entering everything I eat in the tracker. You can do this, just take 1 day at a time. Sue emoticon

emoticon to SP & to the Message Boards JANLEA64. We are so happy you have decided to join us.

For some the website can be a bit overwhelming in the beginning. I recommend you go to the Start Page, click on 'How To Use This Site' at the far right top menu bar, choose from 'Getting Started Guide' or 'Site Tour Videos' or 'FAQs'. These will familiarize you with different areas of Spark and help you to get started. You might even want to consider watching one tutorial daily and practicing the tips until you are comfortable enough to go on to the next.

Don't be shy. Post often so we can get to know you. Friendly help, motivation, clarification, and fun are just a click away. Be sure to set up your SparkPage, if you haven't already done so as soon as possible. It gives people a place to drop an encouraging message and support you on your journey.

Joining SparkTeams & being active in the challenges has helped me to move forward in my weight loss journey more than anything. I've made friends, received support, kept my focus and been encouraged all along the way. I'm 62 y/o and if I can do this...You Can Do It too.

I hope you will love SparkPeople as much as I do! Wishing you every success on your journey to reaching your personal goals and a healthy lifestyle. I invite you to visit my SparkPage and get started sparking by leaving me a short comment at the bottom of the page.

Love the positive, friendly vibes I'm getting already. Looking to lose 100 or more pounds. It's going to be a journey. Right now life is painful (joints, muscles) and hard as there is no energy to live. However, I have such a beautiful daughter and awesome husband which I wish to share a happy, active, healthy life with, so am looking forward to this journey with others on journeys of their own. Hope you all have a great day on your journey.
