Hello if you use Spark trackers, nutrition and exercise. If you are ready for a healthy lifestyle this was what I did in my moment of desperation. I was diagnosed with Diabetes, High blood Pressure and Cholesterol. I had no access to a computer so looked in the book store. I found the Spark book and wanted to join. Our son gave me his old desk top. I started to Spark I have lost 50 pounds, I am off medication for blood pressure, high Cholesterol and diabetes. All controlled with good food and exercise. The right foods in moderation and as much walking or exercise you can fit in your day. I walk a lot, I measure the food I eat and I TRACK IT. It was not easy but I was determined, small steps, never gave up and had great support here. By the way I am 70 years young. Pat in Maine. Lose it while you are younger, I wish I had found Spark SOONER.

Hi! I'm so glad I found this team! I recently found out that I have now joined the ranks of my other immediate family members in the battle against high blood pressure. I've been a yoyo dieter for years, and realize that I can no longer take my health for granted. It looks like this team will be a great place to share thoughts, ideas, and advice. I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone!
When you feel like quitting....think about why you started.
Hello! I am new to SP! I happened to come upon this website when I was surfing the web this AM in desperation! I have been dieting for ever and just seem to be gaining weight! My goal weight is 129 and I am a very fat 153 and scared! I have no clothes that fit and I don't want to leave the house because of that! I think I will try the LCHF diet next! Does anyone have any suggestions?
