    That's so great but the calorie tracking tool at Livestrong is much easier and better than Sparkpeople's. I just use both!!

    SparkPeople was recommended to me by someone who used to work for eDiets as one of their biggest competitors.

    Awesome. I used to use lose it. It's good for tracking food, but sparkpeople is a complete package; info , trackers, motivation support etc. I am glad, but not surprised sp won.

    There could be no other, and absolutely I think this website is better than the ones you pay for. It certainly encourages you to lose weight and look for a motivation to live healthier and happier. It certainly helps me and I am diagnosed as hypothyroidism. emoticon emoticon

Well deserved. This is such a fantastic site, I like the fact that alongside tracking progress, being motivated to do well through the points, encouragement of others etc, I can also chat with others about hobbies such as photography and cycling, which steer the mind and focus away from food, weight, and on to creative, fun activities. I can boost my self-image and confidence through such teams as 'pennies for pampering' and 'love your body', and learn to enjoy food again through the mindful eating and clean food teams.

    I have been a sparkmember for almost 2 years and it is the best thing that has come into my life. If I neglect my tracking I fall off the wagon fast. My spark acct. wasn't working for a couple of weeks and a lot of my sparkfriends keep getting in touch with tech support to see what was the matter. It took awhile but something finally worked. It is support like that that makes this site the best in the world. The support, motivation and encouragement is over whelming to say the least. I love coming into sparkpeople daily.
