Here are more thoughts and testimonials from the community, our SparkPeople members.

From LDWADDLES

I've tried eDiets, Weight Watchers, TOPPS and never seemed at home. Somehow, I feel more at ease here and I have not explored most of the site yet. I have tried groups, but I am always afraid I will fail and I think I may with my thinking set myself up for failure.

From JALTON

I am a nurse and well trained in nutrition, but without support all that is useless. In all my years of dieting, I have tried them ALL… I have been down to a size 8 or 10 or 12 several times, only to bounce back to something just less then HUGE. This is the first time that I feel that I have the tools and wonderful support from SP and not having to break the bank to do it. I am telling all my friends and some of them have already signed up.

From RECKER

I've lost chunks of weight before using various programs but being with SP is different somehow and is changing me from within. I guess it's the first time I'm taking the holistic approach to weight loss. A human being is BODY, MIND AND SPIRIT and I believe to be successful I have to work on all three to become a new creation of myself and I know it's working. The three are interwoven and being in balance with each other brings success. (In my opinion)

I know this might sound like a commercial for SP but I look at it like this.

THE BODY: SP gives me the tools to feed my body correctly and the tools to track my exercise, therefore helping me to get and maintain a healthy body.

THE MIND: SP gives me info I need to make decisions. The more information and knowledge obtained the better.

THE SPIRIT: SP gives me the forum to express myself to others. Although SP gives me the forum it's you my fellow members, my family, my 100 pounds-plus club members, you are the ones that keep me inspired. You are the ones I can turn to for help. You cheer me on with my success and the ones who pick me up when I fall. I believe it's you that is giving me this inner peace I'm obtaining in my journey. THANK YOU ALL!!!!

  • It is having so much for less. It is a freer s - 10/11/2013 8:18:27 AM
  • I am one.
    I am insignificant.

    Yet one by one I crept
    On to you body, while you slept
    Did you notice? Did you care?
    Until I caught you in my snare.

    I am one.
    I am insignificant.

    Yes, everyone ignores me
    On their weight loss journey
    Yet one by one, I equal two.

    I am one
    And I am significant.

    Love my loss on your weigh in
    I'm a significant goal
    To becoming healthy and thin
    The yearning of your very soul. - 3/24/2010 6:29:05 AM
  • I HAVE BECOME SO ADDICTIVE TO SP ITS VERY SUPPORTIVE AND IT HELPS YOU SOOO MUCH.IT HAS VERY INTERESTED ARTICLES ON HELPING YOU TO STAYING HEALTHY. I RECOMENDED TO AVERYONE OF MY FRIENDS.THANKS FOR ALL THE WONDERFUL SUPPORT AND BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE OF SPARK PAGE. - 10/1/2008 12:35:29 AM
  • Great article. I'm having success with SP apparently because I'm like an alcoholic who needs DAILY AA meetings in order to stay "on the wagon". Chris "The Spark Guy" talks about "being on a roll" and that is what I'm on thanks to SP. - 1/30/2008 6:43:46 PM
  • I agree with the other statements. I too had tried many diets and pills. I had lost over 150 pounds on Weight Watchers but after 5 years I gained it back.They do not have the tools to help you when you gain weight.
    I LOVE Spark People and I am so grateful for this website. It provides everything I need.
    Most important for me I don't become a showcase so that a leader can inspire her meetings.Where @ weight watchers locals watched what I bought in the grocery store to see what I would buy. I couldn' even read a book in a local bookstore or even 3 cities away without someone interrupting me with my children.
    It became too overwheming after years passed by.Anyway Spark People does have the tools to help you when you gain.It is such a great extensive website.There are real people who can relate to everything you can relate too.The Panic button is also the most amazing unique tool I have ever seen.It's like having your own private Dr. whenever you need 24hrs a day.SP it is private yet public.
    I just love SP. - 1/30/2008 12:44:40 PM
