LOL, I found the same. I spend more time here than on FB, and that's a good thing, because I have never found a more positive bunch of people than here. Leave the trash talk on FB, and come here and be encouraged and uplifted. And kicked in the butt a little to move and get healthy :)

Welcome to Spark. You have taken an important step on your journey by joining! I've been a member a little over 3 years. I made fantastic progress and lost 100 pounds in the first year BUT I became careless about nutrition and exercise and have gained a lot of the pounds back! I became disgusted with myself and closed my Spark account, but soon realized I NEEDED to be here. I'm back using the nutrition and exercise trackers now - they are so important. The sense of community and the friendships I have made here keep me going! Explore the site, make your Sparkpage if you haven’t, join teams, and make friends. You will find this site an amazing place full of encouragement, inspiration, advice, and support. Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with. Good luck! Sheila

to Sparkpeople! Be sure to ask when you have questions. SP can be overwhelming!
Hello! I'm just beginning SparkPeople and find it be very interesting and very informative. My goal is to lose 30 pounds by June. I have only lost 6lbs but I'm very optimistic. I finally found something that I enjoy doing. I spend more time on here than Facebook now. I am accountable, but not pressured.
