By: KRISTI ATKINSON

The new year is coming quickly, which means it is time for New Year’s Resolutions. You can resolve to live with a healthier style with the help of online communities such as SparkPeople. SparkPeople helps members get fit and lose weight the healthy way. You can sign up for free and enjoy the helpful resources including calorie counters, meal plans, personalized fitness programs, motivation, support, recipes, articles, and more. GFGL writer, Kristi Atkinson, joined SparkPeople to show you how to navigate through the site with step-by-step photos.

Remember to…

  1. Decide between the weight and lifestyle options
  2. Enter your weight and height and it will tell you your Body Mass Index (BMI) as well as your target BMI
  3. Enter your interests and allergies or conditions
  4. Enter your meal plan preferences

BONUS: You can also set your Fast Break goals. “Fast Break” goals are a SparkPeople innovation. They encourage new members to pick three small goals to work on during their first two weeks. Their research shows that people who start with a Fast Break lay a strong foundation for future success.

SparkPeople will automatically put you into a specific group based on your geographic location, age, goals and meal and fitness preferences.


Start your new year off with a little help from the online community! Remember, don’t just count your years, make your years count.
