Spark Is Much More than a Weight-Loss Site

Sunday, January 08, 2012

I found sparkpeople because I wanted to loose weight. (I did, not enough but that is another story and most certainly not the fault of SP.) I found the site by chance when I actually wanted to sign up with weight watchers - I call that a stoke of tremendous luck. Spending time on the site I learned a lot, and I mean A LOT, about exercising and in the process and with the help of sparkfriends (yes, they are VERY important in the whole process) I got interested in better eating habits. - Exercising regularly has become a habit and eating right a need (at least most of the time...)

But that was not the end of the spark journey. I was so happy to read the great blog "Setting Non-Diet Goals: Helpful for Overall Well-Being" by Denise Tausig, and I could not agree more. (And there is the excuse for blogging less: I am reading more, courtesy of SP.) Thank you!

    I agree, too, and share some of the same goals. I am committed to a photo-a-day, and I am determined to read more fiction books this year -- hopefully one fiction book a month. I read plenty of non-fiction books, but need to "escape" more with fiction.

I have found that by posting my progress on the Nutrition, Fitness, Other Goals, and SparkStreaks, I am more likely to follow through with my goals.

Best wishes in 2012!
