I started Sparking in June of 2007. By using Spark and some self discovery along the way, I'm down 50 pounds, and am holding
steady at a healthy weight. Spark is a massive site, you'll be discovering new and exciting things for months to come! * Diet is a dirty word. Every time I hear it, I wash my mouth out with chocolate!

Thanks! I am looking forward to learning as well. I tracked my food for the first time today, with my mistakes and all. No more lying to myself about what I'm eating!

Hi. My name is Kassie. I found this site while I was looking for a meal planner online. I don't think it is a coincidence that I found a place that might be able to give me support.
I am 24 years old and have a lovely 3-year-old daughter. My husband and I have been married for almost 5 years. After we got married, I joined Weight Watchers, and because of the community, lost about 20 lbs. When we moved out of state, I gained it all back, plus some after our daughter was born.
I am here because I need help. I have hit rock bottom, and this is my last ditch effort. I can't seem to find anyone interested in joining me in my weight loss journey, and I know that I am killing myself one day at a time when I don't make the right choices. But now, I'm close to the point of not caring. I don't know what else to do, and I am an emotional eater. I'm finding myself more and more depressed each day, and falling deeper into this rut I've dug myself into.
I have about 40 lbs to lose. I want to lose weight. I want my husband to think that I am attractive. I want to be able to play with my daughter, and have more kids to play with. I want my life to begin. Is this a place that can help me with that?
