I retired four years ago with the good intentions of getting healthier and taking care of myself. In order to become healthier, I would need to lose over 100 pounds. In the four years I have been a member of Spark People, I have lost 10 pounds thanks to this program. In total honesty, I have lost more than that but because of a lack of discipline, loss of commitment and motivation a lot of it has come back. One of the teams I belong to "Christian Living" has a challenge "What are each of you doing for you?" I am hoping that this will help me to stay focused and on track. The group itself is truly amazing as the people on it support and encourage each other on a daily basis. 2012 is the year I TAKE CARE OF ME!

    Thank you for the pedometer goodie and comments! It's been awhile! I am ok - going through some things but surrendering them to the One who can help me and lead me. How about you?

    a fitbit is similar to a pedometer where it measures your steps, the fibit also records flights of stairs and calories eaten and burned, for more info you can check it out at, the neat thing about it, is ithas a page similar to sparks no where as interactive, where when you sync your fitbit, it records your steps, fights of stairs and your sleep activity,you can also enter your food, I find sparks is way more supere for entering food. But it keeps me motivated!!
