I stumbled across SparkPeople by accident back in May of 2007 and I do believe it is one of the BEST things that has ever happened to me! I know this journey IS different for EACH person, but I started with drinking my 8 glasses of water a day and logging my food. Let me just say that logging my food was a HUGE eye opener... DANGER! DANGER! From there I moved on to exercise which for me consisted of walking, walking and yes, more WALKING. I am starting to seriously branch out in how I exercise... Kickboxing, Zumba, Spin and even Bootcamp!
