Welcome. I, too,looked into WW, but found that this site is the same thing only better and free. The only thing it doesn' have is weekly meetings, but I don't want to add another meeting to my week, so that's fine. There are virtual meetings anytime you want them and so much support here! Stay strong in your journey!

I joined SparkPeople about two weeks ago. My name is Patty and my goal is to finally shed this extra 35 pounds I've been carrying around for years. I have tried many different programs, most notably Weight Watchers. I like the WW program, but can't really justify the expense. I was so excited when I found this site, because it is much more complete and more helpful than WW and absolutely free.
I struggle with emotional eating and am really trying to work on this. I know I need to change my habits and the way I think if I am going to lose and keep the weight off. It can just be so difficult sometime.
