The Spark is a compilation of what you can find here at SparkPeople - I did buy and read the book - but I had already successfully done the Spark Program. You can too!

I was 54 when I joined SparkPeople and 56 when I came back and started my Spark Program, starting with Stage One. This is a one day at a time program, but if you do the SparkPeople Program Steps, it really does work. I am terribly average, it's the SP program that is extraordinary.
I found logging my foods in the Nutrition Tracker helped me to lose 90 lbs in 16 months! I started at 210 and went to 120.
I hung clothing that was too small on my closet door and every time I would get discouraged I would try them on. Week by week they started fitting! That kept me motivated.
Welcome aboard, we really are all in the same boat! Sometimes we can sail right along but sometimes we have to be rowing like crazy!
You can make it happen! SparkPeople really does work!
Welcome to SparkPeople! You'll find lots of support, information and inspiration here. The book takes all of the great information here and puts it into a 28 day plan to get you started. I found it very helpful. All the best on meeting your goals! 2285 days ago
to Sparkpeople. You are not alone. I have found with this weight since my teenage years. We have to remember that it took a long time to gain the weight and it's going to take a long time to take it off. Sparkpeople is such a great place for encouragement and support as well as a place to find the tools you need to count calories, etc. Good luck on your road to a healthier lifestyle. 2285 days ago
