I am 46 with alot of weight to lose. I finally got the Spark! Done with the diet rollercoaster. I was the fast food eating, diet soda drinking, non excerciser who drank too much. I quit all of the above, got the Spark, and started running and strength work. I also drink 1 gallon of water a day and track my food daily on the Spark.. 1200 to 1300 calories a day, with one free meal a week. I am making great strides, and its slow going, but the Spark is GREAT support! I GOT THIS!

Thank you fellow Spark and Texan! You are my first to respond, and I need that today! I too believe in Christ we can. :)
