I was desperate, had tried every diet ever invented and then some. I couldn't afford to join the sites that cost money and then one day doing a search I found SparkPeople.

Hi. I'm Vickey, I'm a 56 yr old wife, mother and grandmother and I'm working on becoming a healthier me. When I started my journey with SparkPeople in 2008 I was 354.5 lbs. I was desperate, had tried every diet ever invented and then some. I couldn't afford to join the sites that cost money and then one day doing a search I found SparkPeople.

Today I am so grateful for SparkPeople. My journey has been slow and steady. I no longer diet but instead have developed healthy eating habits. I've encountered some ups and downs, even some pot holes. but through it all I've continued on and share SparkPeople with everyone I meet so it can offer others hope too.
