My name is Wendy and I've been on Sparkpeople for years on and off. I just completed a university weight loss study that took place from 2010-2011 and lost 20lbs. I am now on Weight Watchers but since their website is far inferior to Sparkpeople I am back on the Spark train to track my nutrition and fitness. WOOT WOOT!

10 reasons I joined Sparkpeople
1. To be accountable.
2. To get healthier for my heart.
3. For support - which I am getting. Thank you very much Sparkers!
4. To get family members and friends to join with me, like a social networking kind of thing but in a healthy way.
5. To get great ideas, recipes and tools from others to use on my weight loss journey.
6. To have a Sparkpeople blog. A place just for me where I can say whatever I want about my weight and body, and no one will judge me.
7. The ease and convenience of having Sparkpeople on my phone, on my computer, anywhere I go basically so that I can always track.
8. To have access to all of my nutrition and fitness records in order to see what worked and what didn't.
9. I want to be able to be in my bathing suit without ANY self consciousness. I live in Florida so this is very important to me!!!
10. To finally win the battle of weight loss once and for all.

    Thanks for the comment on my blog. You are right... it hasn't been enough time yet to see big losses. I just wish it would all melt away!! But I know it doesn't work like that. Anyway, thank you for the support!
