Please read the comment below from the lady that started a new post. I believe this a response to your reply as well as another members reply that thanked you for sending out the email to someone who did not "bother" to read the rules.

"I must say that I thought this would be a really welcoming and supportive group, but my first email response a couple of days ago was one that chastised me for making the mistake of posting incorrectly, with another person chiming in about my incorrect posting a little later. To be honest, I've never posted on any message board before this one and was taking the "plunge" with this board. I think I'll just have to do this on my own since this message board isn't what I thought it would be. I thought you might want to be aware of how this looks to a newbie.

Please donít go. I donít think youíre posting challenged, and I didnít mind the fact that I got an email saying that you started a new topic. Iím sorry you feel like you were being chastised. Your experience taught me the correct posting procedure, because I didnít know it, either.
Maybe we should all try to be nicer. I know Iím here because I am at my witís end on what to do about my weight and my health and the last thing I need is to not feel completely supported and loved. Letís keep that in mind. Losing weight is an emotional issue (just look at Biggest Loser and how many times someone cries). A lot of us are very sensitive and thereís always a better way to educate each other.
So Kathryn, you donít have to do this on your own. Keep your chin up, mind open, heart full from so many people fighting the same battle who are willing to help you.

You need to create a sparkpage. When setting up your page, there is an option at the bottom where you can set up your ticker.

Hi -- thanks for the info. I must be really be "posting" challenged since I thought I had done it correctly. I never meant to send my message to everyone! Oh well, I'll see what I can do to correct it in the future.

Welcome. Please take the time to read all the sticky posts from the Team Leaders. They have asked, since there are about 15,000 of us, that we not start new topics on the message boards. 15,000 people just got email notification that you made a new topic. You can imagine that if even half of us created a new topic that would be a lot of emails. The Sticky Topics also answer a lot of questions that you might have about this whole process.
Good Luck, I hope you make your goal!!

I'm going to try to go for it this time! Maybe I won't be swimsuit ready by the end of May, but I want to get into shape and try to meet my goal of losing 55 lbs by my 55th birthday on Dec 5th. I think this challenge will be a great way to get me started!
