Im celebrating my first year anniversary with Sparks in the June 3-9, 2007 class and this is my motto! "Every time you meet a situation, though you think at the moment it is an impossibility and you go through the tortures of the damned, once you have met it and lived through it you find that forever after you are freer than you were before."

I was so excited to find this site when I was searching for my son that I decided to sign up for myself. I have a 13-year-old son who needs to lose about 40 lbs and wanted to just find a sketchy food plan for me to work with for him. When I just happened to find this site I couldn't believe it!! All of this information for FREE?!!! This is better than any online site that you make monthly payments for. Of course, with him being 13, he's satisfied with just getting an idea of what to do, which is fine for now...he's trying. But for me, I've fallen in love with this! This is really my first week. I signed up and followed the plan on Wed last week, but then we were away from Thur to Mon and I'm still playing catch-up. This comes at a great time in my life...I'm 51 and am at that time in my life when weight loss doesn't come easy. While I only have about 20 lbs that I'd like to lose, my main concern is fitness, which I've never in my life been able to master. I feel like I have my own personal trainer...for FREE!! You may not be able to tell from this message, but I really don't take the time to send messages very often, but will strive to share as much as possible. I hope that everyone who has joined this site will have success in achieving and/or maintaining their health and fitness goals.
