I've recently been pushing myself to get points, too, and it's a great way to make a fun game out of getting more information and becoming more involved.

Thanks for the inspiration SkinnyLumpkin!

Thank you, SkinnyLumpkin. Let's do our best! I am still not sure of how the Spark Points system works, but yes, if it'll help, then great. I have been reading quite a lot of articles as well. Some are very interesting. I have been trying to stick to the meal plan, and hopefully it will help. Stay strong too.

I only have a bout 3 weeks of SparkPeople under my belt myself, but it has been a fantastic experience. I don't care so much about the "Spark Points" but I have been pushing myself to get the points because in doing so I am directed to reading articles, blogs and message boards that have served invaluable in educating me about nutrition, dieting and my overall well-being.

Try to stick with the SparkPeople recommendations the best you can, from the meal planning to the reading etc. and I think you will find it easier and easier to pass up those snacks for something healthy pretty quickly. Stay focused and be strong!

...to lose my habit of snacking! Every time I get home, from anywhere (literally, anywhere. Shopping, karaoke, even eating out), I always open the refrigerator and grab some snack. Those little devils come in all sorts of shape and size. Chocolate bars, cookies, cakes, chips... and I love them all so much! =
My habit got the better of me and I have been growing in terms of clothing size, especially since the holidays. Well, you know how tough holidays can get for people like us :'(
I just found out about SparkPeople yesterday, and I thought this might be the very thing that can help me shake off those accumulating pounds.
So, nice to meet you all.
