Here are tips I put together to share with each new Sparkperson I meet. I hope it will be a help to you as you work toward reaching your goals!
If you get stuck, and have a technical question about the site, here is a link to the Customer Support Team that is eager to help you: http://www.sparkpeople.com/community/hel p_support.asp (only technical questions, if you have a nutrition, fitness, or health question, post the question in the Forums, other Spark members will eagerly try to help you!
Use your Spark Points (click on view SparkPoints) as a map to the site. It is a good way to learn your way around and you can earn points to send yourself or others Sparkgoodies.
Go back to your Start Page if you get lost, you can get almost anywhere from there.
Be sure to use the nutrition tracker. You can ensure you are getting the proper nutrients as well as tracking your caloric intake and this is so important to any weight loss journey. Never "diet" again! Keep focusing on living a healthier lifestyle!
Read the book, THE SPARK for guidance, motivation and inspiration!
Check out SPARKCOACH.com for extra support, motivation, and inspiration. I joined it, and LOVING IT! Great way to stay accountable!

NEVER QUIT!! NEVER GIVE UP! THINK POSITIVE! If you have a bad day, let it go. Wake up to a new day, fresh start!
One of my favorite SP quotes (from BobbyD31) "Remember we all have Setbacks: ACCEPT it, HANDLE it, and MOVE ON!
Remember, this is a LIFETIME JOURNEY!!

I hope you'll find a team or two where there are others with common interests. Became active on those teams. Find folks who are supportive of you and your goals. Before you know it, you'll be losing your weight and well on your way. If you need help finding teams or have questions, please drop by my page and ask. I'll be happy to help you.
And create a SparkPage for yourself! You'll be glad you did. It's a wonderful way for folks to drop by and communicate with you ... both with comments and goodies.
Give yourself some time ... it will take that to learn all the tools and to find your way around. But you can do it!! We're so glad you are here!
