There are also groups here that you can join. They are started not only by Sparks themselves, but also the members with special interests. Finding a group of like-minded individuals makes it easier to stay with the goals you have set for yourself. They also have a Sparks coaching program that charges a small fee each month. This is optional and only something offered for those who want a more personalized special coaching.

This site offers a lot and continues to grow by leaps and bounds. And if you ever run into any problems, don't hesitate to ask anyone…no matter what, I have found, they'll find a way to help.

Once again..Welcome!

Hello. I am here because I am overweight and need help to lose it. I have always had problems with my weight. I have had two boys. Two yrs and 5wks. I never lost the weight from my first one and gained even more with this second one. With this last one I was diagnose with gestational diabetes and told that if I didn't get my life under control I was going to become diabetic and more then likely have heart problems because my family has a history of heart disease. I looked at my oldest son and husband and decided then and there that I was going get my life back so I can be here for my family for years. When I held my newest son in my arms it made me more determined. My mom has told me about Spark People for a long time but I kept saying I didn't need it but I have come to realize that if I didn't need some help I would already have my weight under control. So here I am trying Sparks People hoping it give the resources to help me keep going to reach my goal.
