I will survive and WIN! YES! With help from spark friends! - 1/16/2013 8:51:57 PM

    I have join this program about a week ago and still haven't explored everything. No weight loose yet. That's because I want to make sure that I am on the right track of tracking everything. I am trying to start over on the January Jump Start program. - 1/15/2013 11:23:04 AM

  • Y MINUTE ARM VIDEO PREVIEWED TODAY. Hello. It appears that the site doesn't have a feature where we can SAVE videos to our profile/account. Some I'd like to go back to and it would be VERY TIME CONSUMING to go thru the hundreds of videos IF I only want to review and use a few.

    I checked your you tube channel using the exact name and this video is NOT there either.

    Can you create a feature for members to save videos that they really want to incorporate in their workouts? Thanks. -jcs0103 - 1/5/2013 2:07:11 PM

    HI everyone. quit smoking 2.4 years ago. Packed on 58 pounds. Husband of 34 years gave me a trip to Hawaii in August as a Christmas gift as a pre-35th wedding anniversary celebration. Very excited but need to go at least 50 pounds lighter. Motivated now but I know in a week or so, I am going to need a lot of help to end a lot of poor eating habits I have picked up. Just joined Sparkpeople tonight. long way to go. - 1/2/2013 7:41:33 PM
  • my heart goes out to all in Connecticut. My thoughts and prayers will be with everyone on this senseless act so close to the holidays. - 12/15/2012 7:48:13 AM
  • There are many levels of ability, and this video is definitely geared toward people who are relatively fit already. I teach an alternative to yoga to all levels, from extremely fit to wheelchair bound, from 3 years old to 90 (in different classes)! I've had to learn how to adjust the movements for all sorts of restrictions. So I agree that this type of workout should be reserved for those who are fit and have no physical limitations. One could easily get hurt trying this workout if their body is not ready or fit enough for it. However, there are good alternatives out there. Stretching and strengthening one's body and spirit is an important part of a balanced exercise regimen. - 12/12/2012 7:49:32 AM
