Yes, try to find a local TOPS meeting to go to... I'm a member and I love it. I just joined for $28 for a whole year!

Before you judge me, make sure you're perfect.

I would rather be known in life as an honest sinner than a lying hypocrite.

I was in WW too, and stopped due to expense and inconvenience.
I just want to belong somewhere with people who are just like me. I like it at SP and I do feel like I belong. I get a lot of really good ideas here, and I intend to use them, I hope someday I can give someone else some good ideas too.

Hi Skern,

I lost 35 with Weight Watchers at Work two years ago. I too stopped primarily due to cost. I'm hoping to build new community here too. I've started Spark twice before but didn't really get to know anyone. Life is busy and there's not a lot of support in my personal sphere but I'm tired of making excuses. I just want to get this done!

Let's keep each other motivated! I want to be talking about my dazzling success this time next year.

Good luck to you.

Fontella

Hi and welcome to the spark team.

I too have been on WW and found it expensive. Good luck on your journey and post
questions if you have any.

Search for T.O.P.S. online (Take Off Pounds Sensibly). They have meetings, support, weigh ins, a magazine, little prizes all for a lot cheaper. They have been around 50+ years and meet everywhere.

Keep hopping. No stopping!

Glad you are part of Spark People, as with anything you'll get out what you put into it!

If you need anything ask questions; read the articles and join a few active Spark Teams! Life is a journey so be kind to yourself~

Welcome!
You will find a welcoming supportive community here.
I do recommend you join a few Spark Teams that interest you. Team members are so supportive and helpful. Plus, you will meet others with similar interests, goals, and or challenges. And being active on your Spark Teams will keep you accountable.

Best of luck to you!

I was on Weight Watchers for a year and lost 25 pounds but the cost has caused me to cancel my membership. I have been a long time member of Spark People, so I am continuing on my journey with Spark People instead of Weight Watchers. I will miss the meetings the most. The support and accountability have become very important to me.
