    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

    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!
