Searching food journal

We didn't gain our weight over night so we aren't gonna lose it overnight.

Put one foot in front of the other. Keep pushing and we will reach our goals.

Wow, I can hardly remember that long ago. But I was looking for a diet journal and this was one of the first sites to show up on the web search page. I have loved it from the very first time I logged on, even though I sometimes stop logging in and everything for a while. It has changed so much since the first time I logged on.

Hi everyone! I stumbled upon SparkPeople in 2006 while looking for a calorie calculator. The first time I came to the site, I stumbled on a posting for someone looking for a Spark Buddy and she invited me to a team she was a member of where I met the most wonderful group of ladies. These women, although we live in different states, are now real life friends that I continue to stay in touch with.

If I remember correctly I was Googling for weight loss programs and it came up. I have since invited several others who have joined though.

I actually heard about SP about 6 years ago from my Doula. She used it to help her get on track once she was done making babies herself. 3 years later, after I had 3 kids myself! I joined up and have been seesawing ever since. I'm decided this time to just keep trying... making one change at a time until SOMETHING happens.

I read an article in Woman's World in April 2008 about a woman who lost a lot of weight using SP. I checked it out and have loved it ever since. I haven't tried much else except trying to workout more.

I learned about SparkPeople through MyPoints.com also!
I love it here, there is so much support and good articles and advice. I'm also on WW and follow the Points but also track here with food and fitness.

A health coach I was working with thought I would enjoy SP. I did WW a number of years back (before Points) and it worked as long as I attended meetings. SP is much more comprehensive.

I, also, found Sparkpeople through mypoints.

Mostly before Spark, I would get books from the library about weight loss (actually, I still do) and I have a lot of workout videos.

I love that this website has a ton of information, not only about weight loss, but health and nutrition, too! I think Sparkpeople helps a lot through exchanges of ideas via blogs/posts and support from other members.

I found Spark People at the beginning of this year when I was just beginning my weight-loss journey. Some friends on a Tolkien related site who were also seeking to lose weight told me about it, and I was skeptical at first, but decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did!

Don't give up!

I first found Sparks in 2010 or 20009, can't remember which. I found it while searching for a free weight loss site / group. enjoyed it and I did lose weight, I think 10 pounds. But I cancelled it because I thought that I was wasting too much time on it. I gained back the weight and a little extra. In 2011 I started having problems with my gallbladder and was having a hard time finding recipes that I could eat, that and I was really needing to lose weight and I did it the first time I was on here. So I re-joined in Jan. But didn't really get active till May.
I haven't really tried other things. Way back when I was lifting weights and getting toned, but I didn't have 40 pounds to lose then, so I ate what ever I wanted.
I've always been interested in fitness and food, more in the fitness area.
I do think it's easier this way. I have people cheering my on, encouraging me, helping me, answering my questions. And going through the same stuff that I am going through.

Please, Please watch and listen for motorcycles while your out and about!

Peace, Love & Hugs

I learned about spark from a link in an e-mail from mypoints.com. If you click on their e-mails you can earn points that become rewards (I usually get Barnes & Noble gift cards). I love spark and it is so much better than most other things I've done because it is about learning to live for life not just to lose weight.

Let us know, how you heard about spark. Was it from a member or were you surfing the internet?! What do you think of it? Have you tried other things to lose weight, be educated?! Is this better or harder?!
