Kama if you go under community and go to spark pages you can search user names and such there!

Kama- I find it hard to find people....there's a "search" in edit my sparkpage, then click on add/remove friends......a new window pops up and says put your friends username here.......the only thing is you need to know their username.

I usually click on people and look through their friends..........if you know you have a common one.

Great advice, I use it in IE and don't have a problem but I only use Firefox when absolutely needed hehe. But if it is running slow def use FireFox

Also, the site is VERY JavaScript-heavy; if you find that it's really slow, it should run better in Firefox or Chrome. I personallty prefer IE but SparkPeople was just way too slow in IE for me, it's great in Firefox.

Some of you made me realize how confusing this site can be so I'm going to try to post some stuff about it here. If you have any ?'s just ask them and I will answer ASAP.

Okay the first section of Spark People is "My Trackers"
Under my tracker you can do all sorts of cool stuff

If you click on

start it brings you back to your homepage. Here you can go down and see your progress of calories eaten so far today and you can weigh in there too.

my nutrition brings you to your food log page. When you first go on that page you will see meal plans already on the page. They are suggested meal plans so click "don't show meal plans" then they will go bye bye :) Then you can click "add a food" to search that database of food just like at BuddySlim. You can add favorite foods to make them easier to find by checking the add to favorite box when you add that food to your day. You can also add your own food where it says add a food and search for a recipe which I love to do. You can also track your water by clicking the up button for each cup you've drank. Once you've finished you can click "view todays report" or "I'm finished tracking for the day show me feedback" and you will get some great feedback on your day. My nutrion is a learn as you do thing so play around with it.

my fitness is the workout version of my nutrition. I like to track my progress in miles so I use the add milage feature often. But the add cardio and strentgh training works great too. This one has a lot of cool features that you just have to jump into and figure them all out.

other goals is a great page because you can add other goals to your day there. I added "read one positive quote a day" and "spent 5 minutes talking to god today" to mine. It helps remind me this is just as much a mental battle as anything.

Spark Streaks is a fun one because we get to go steaking! lol Well, not THAT kind but equally as fun. This page you can add things you want to do each day. Log calories, blog, drink 8 glasses of water and so on and this will show you how many days you've completed these task in a row.

reports works well after you've been here for awhile and you can see all the awesome things you've done and the progess you've made. They show it in so many different forms it's fantastic!

planner is a planner that you can plan your day with.

spark mail is just that your spark mailbox!

my spark points are fantastic. Each day you get to spin the spinner to get points just for logging in then your collect points for all sorts of things like reading articles, using the email, posting on message boards, drinking water, logging calories. You get trophys for points and can buy cute pictures for your page with the points. It's fun a cute. Go to the page to check it out and learn more about it.

websearch is well a web search


Next section is for HEALTHY LIFESTYLE

Healthy lifestyle home will bring you to that section of spark people

nutrition is an area you can search through a ton of articles about nutrtion and healthy lifestyles including diseases, weightloss, food, and all the above. It's a great resource for life and fantastic way to spend some extra time.

fitness is the same thing and it includes videos of different work outs and fitness articles and polls all sorts of great things to get your workout amped up.

motivation is one of my personal favorites. If you're having a hard time getting to the gym or want to binge take some time there to read the different things people have to say about their journey and yours. It's a great tool.

wellness is about the mental side of weightloss and just life in general. They have great articles on mental preparedness for depression, stress, greift, sadness and just if you feel like you're going crazy sometimes. This helps me when I'm going through a hard time in life.

SparkDiet is the page for those who want to follow the spark dieting system which is actually pretty good it's a 4 step break down of jump starting and maintaining weightloss. I use it whenever I'm having trouble on my diet.

Life Style Centers is a where you go to find your set of people. Mother, college students, men, living green, maintaining weight, seniors and whatever you can find stuff about you there.

videos has great workout videos, cooking and basically web blog videos.

recipes has...you guessed it recipes! And they are really good ones too. I use it all the time to find soemthing new to cook.

The next section is HEALTH CONDITIONS which has information about all health conditions from A-Z it shouldnt be too hard to navigate but great reading for people in new situations. Almost like a webdm type thing.

Then we have the COMMUNITY section.

Community home bring you to your homepage for that section.

message boards brings you to the place to get connected. They have a ton of different places so you can find whatever you need.

my spark teams is where you will find us! and anyone other team you add. You can make a team, you can search for teams and all that good stuff there.

sparkpages is where you can edit your spark page to look however you want and say whatever you want. Also you can find friends who live near you and maybe a workout buddy or friends who live far away but can help inspire you.

on your spark page you can update your status just like on facebook but for healthy living and you can blog, see your comments, add photos, see your trophies and all sorts of stuff.

blogs is where you can view all the blogs going out now. They move much faster than buddyslim so keep up! lol jk so just check thato ut for inspiration. If you want to blog you can do so by going to your spark page then clicking blog then click add a blog. Seems a little complicated but pretty soon it will be easy.

sucess stories is the best!!! It has so many great stories in it and just great inspiration. Check it out.

secrets of sucess is just that. Articles about how they did it.

friend feed is great to see whats going on with all your friends.

Spark America is spark peoples challenge to get america fits homepage you can navigate that one on your own but its basic.
