Welcome to Sparks.

This is a great place to be. I have never met another group online or off where everyone is non-judgmental and very welcoming. Anyway….,
Here are some links I hope you find helpful...

1. Getting Started

2. Video on An Overview of SparksPeople Community

3. Earn SparkTrophies for Reaching Your Goals

4. Video: How to Use Sparks Fitness Tracker

5. How to use SparksPeople Nutrition Tracker


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.
