    This story was how i found Spark People...Today was my first day here, and so far i am quite impressed...I love the ease of the calorie counting, and being able to count more than calories...I have a physical disability, and that is about half of my weight issue...the other half is just me...I have recently seriously re-injured my knee, and have regained 15 extra pounds...Now my new goal has climbed back to losing 50 lbs...i just want to be healthy, and be an even bigger inspiration to all of my classmates and students in TKD...Finding this article today, seems to have made me very content...Thank you for this resource!! emoticon
