    11/23/2015 12:50:20 PM, by CAT-IN-CJ

    I have always allowed so many things to hold me back from my full potential. When I first came across SparkPeople, I didn't want to commit to a plan . . . . I found myself dangling precariously in a dark chasm somewhere between the fear of failure . . . . and the fear of success. ... Read more

    11/17/2015 12:01:44 PM, by FIT4MEIN2013

    Who doesn't love it? Look at the nutrition label on a can, though. Whole or gel, it is 110 calories per 1/4 cup! Thee has to be a better way.
