  • Hi Everyone- I am excited to have discovered SparkPeople with the help of my daughter! I am taking baby steps and feel really good about it! I am up walking, going out to get my mail daily, and reaching some other very attainable short term goals! - 2/5/2013 2:39:58 PM

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

    this is my first post, on my first day on sparkpeople.i had a heart attack 2 years ago and quit smoking- i dont know why i didn't quit eating, but they just placed my third stent and saved me from my third heart attack- enough is enough and i am done trying to use food as my weapon of choice for suicide. i need all the input i can get to become healthy- any ideas that may help me see my beautiful grandchildren grow up. any advice is welcome! - 11/17/2012 10:40:20 PM
    Well it truley looks like I am not alone! I have started with SparkPeople about 18 months ago at my Doctors encouragment. So yes I did not do much. Never got around to doing anything but putting my weight in and a couple of days of meals. Well I am now heavier than I have ever been. Two days ago My Physcal therapist who went through 2 knee surgries with me 20 years ago said I am putting myself in a prison headed for a wheel chair. I am having knee problems on the left side they want to do surgery again and problems with the right foot that is so painful some days I can not walk. Yesturday I went to he Doctor they want to do a heart CT because of chest pains I get while sitting. What I mess I have made of myself. I always put my families and business needs first.
    I let myself get side tracked when I prepare foods. I start off the day great and am off my food plan by noon. When I eat off the kids plates, prepare foods when I am hungery.Mistake! Mistake! Two days ago I started really committing myself to Sparkpeople. Not just getting the emails but this is my fist community post. I am really going to do it this time. I was able to pass up two party deserts the week before I started. Cakes and Pies. I just have to be strong and keep it up. Two days of clean eatting in a row. I am off to make it three. - 11/15/2012 8:24:58 AM
    Hi, I foun d your website and I deceided to join the team message board to get more ideals, suggestion and facts for a healthy life style, weight loss and to gain good friends with positive attitudes. I do have a gym membership, which I do use, but sometimes I think there is something in the water. I try to eat a balance meal, when I prepare a full meal, other time I will eat, a sandwich or frozen dinner, not often. But I hope by following, my team and logging my meals and getting good feedback, I will be a much happier and healthy person, like those of you that have reached and continue to work towards your goals. my name is Linda: welcome, talk to you all soon - 10/30/2012 1:44:41 PM
  • The quizzes sometime asks questions that I can not answer correctly for me.
    The recent one on is your spending/money usage healthy had several questions that I choose the closet answer although it is incorrect. I know that the quizzes are written for a wide variety of people. - 9/24/2012 3:30:23 PM
