I've been on all kinds of diets over the past couple decades, sometimes with great success (100+ pounds lost). But each time I've eventually fallen back on old habits and gained the weight back and then some. This past Thanksgiving I weighed my heaviest at 400 pounds and here I am again. Part of me feels like a 4 time divorcee saying to his new bride - "This time, honey, I'm really committed". Yeah right. But I need to make it happen this time. I sense my mortality more than ever. I want to live to see my grand kids.
I've been using My Fitness Pal, and developed a real nice set of friends. But I kept running into SparkXXX in various web searches and such and decided to give it a try. I've gone through the start guide, created a SparkPage, started logging my food, joined some teams. What I think I really need are some friends, though, who log their food and exercise and check up on me and my logging as well. That's what I liked the most about MFP. I really haven't seen people asking for or offering to be friends here - they point to the teams and such. What is the accountability paradigm on SP?
This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it!
