to the team and to wanting a healthier you. This is not a diet.It is a new way of eating...a healthy way of eating, and watching portions and their size. I fine it very important and helpful to weigh all my food according to the portions that are set and track all I eat. For me I count points as i am in WW. and have reached my goal and have maintained for over 6.5 yrs. I could not have done it without Spark's support along with my WW plan. You can lose with Spark's plan too. I no linger go to WW mtgs. but the plan works " IF I WORK IT". No, I am not shouting, I'm just making an important point.Eat your fruits and veggies and drink your water. 6 to 8, eight ounce glasses a day. I tend to sip all day and that works for me. I drink about 64 ounces a day, especially in the summer here in Fl. I add Crystal light to enhance the favor. I have to have ice in my glass too. But everyone is different and, that's the beauty of Spark. We all can learn form one another. Good luck and ask for help when you need it. That's what we're here for. Ask before you over eat. We can't help after!

Yes it works, I have gone from 172 lbs to 144 lbs. I track food exercise and love the support.

I am 58 pounds less than I was last year. Sparks works! No magic bullet, no overnite plans. Just one day at a time, track your food, drink your water and move. Glad you are joining us on this journey to a healthy lifestyle.

Are you ready for 12 week challenge that will help you toward reaching your goals ? Requirements are chat on your team at least 3 times a week, part pate in Challenges which will help you loose the weight and develop healthy habits. And weighting in on Wed is required
This would begin mid Jan with newbie training beginning the first of the year.
It works if you do. Whole issue is never easy nor is there a one 'trick' that works for everybody. Happy you've joined the SP team! Great bunch of folks. Am sure you'll have lots of support and encouragement.
Never Give Up! Never Surrender!

Hi! Once again working on the weight issue. I have tried so many things, but have not yet been successful at reaching and maintaining my goals. My entire family is heavy, so it definitely runs in the family. But, I am determined to overcome that trend. Help and encouragement welcomed!
