Hi. Thanks for checking out my Spark Page. I'm Eileen and people call me Ei or IRISH. I live in Ohio!

Isn't SparkPeople.com wonderful? I really love it and it sure is helping me in my journey. This website was recommended to me when I asked my doctor how I could lose weight. Wow! I am so glad I asked her that question!
I went to Weight Watchers for several years off and on and did lose, but then put it back on when I stopped going.

I went to Weight Watchers for several years off and on and did lose, but then put it back on when I stopped going.
In September 2010 when I discovered Spark People and read the book, it really got me motivated to make a decision. I decided I wanted a healhier lifestyle and knew I needed to make a change. I needed to do his on my OWN.
Spark got me going and kicked in and I realized it was up to me to be STRONG and FOCUSED. Motivation is great on this site.

NOW - July 21, 2015 I began a New program on a Mediterranean diet and lifestyle. I went to a dietician and wellness doctor. They encouraged me to eat whole grain and healthier meals. I track daily and this plan keeps me going and motivated. I exercise more often now that I am completely retired and that helps too. I believe this is the best plan for me. Hope i can stay STRONG and get to goal in this new journey.

I'm afraid that I have some bad news.... Sparkpeople no longer sells the Spark Activity Tracker. I just checked on their store website, and it is no longer available, which is really strange. Amazon still has some to sell but they are full price, and I suspect that there MAY be a new model coming out... I don't know when.

BUT

The one I have is very easy to use, even tracks my swimming, and wirelessly syncs with my computer. Set up was easy, too.

Good luck!

I hope that you're having a wonderful weekend. emoticon for all your exercise classes. I'll be going to our daughter's this week in Sioux Falls, so that won't be a very good time to start swimming locally. Oh well, my time will come! We can do this and we are!!! emoticon emoticon

Thanks for the congrats . The only things that I did different was to get back tracking, gave up eating cinnamon graham crackers and ate one serving of food instead of 1 1/2 or two. It sure pays off while one it focused.
