I joined SparkPeople after doing a websearch for a free diet website. I had already tried and failed with two of the popular online diet plans and decided I wasn't going to "pay to lose" this time. I had used the monthly fee charged by those websites as a motivator to lose weight, but it didn't work.

I joined SparkPeople after doing a websearch for a free diet website. I had already tried and failed with two of the popular online diet plans and decided I wasn't going to "pay to lose" this time. I had used the monthly fee charged by those websites as a motivator to lose weight, but it didn't work. I've been a SparkPeople member for almost 3 months now and this is the best plan I've ever used....because this time I am losing weight for the RIGHT reasons. I really feel that with the education SP is giving me, I will not only reach my goal, but I will also keep the weight off and be much healthier too!

Update: I am back here at SparkPeople after taking too much time away....I lost 42 pounds and was only 12 pounds away from my goal then had gallbladder surgery last December and just never really got back in the diet and exercise routine. Now I've gained about 18 pounds back and need to lose a total of 28 pounds. I've joined the local fitness center so I can use their machines for toning and also have several walking videos to use when the weather is too bad to walk outside, and I'm also riding my recumbent bicycle. Today I'm here figuring out a workout schedule that works with my work schedule and other activities. My boyfriend and I are trying to stick to the Mediterranean eating style and he is being very supportive. :) My goal is to lose that 28 pounds by Valentine's Day 2013!
