I decided to get healthy about a year and a half ago. I started at 228 lbs and I am only 5'2". I was a size 16-18, larger on top.

Something clicked in March 2013. I said enough with the fad diets, I want to do something life changing and attainable. I decided to eat healthy.

There is no quick fix or trick, it's about determination. Spark People has helped me count my calories and track good choices.

I'm happy to say I am now 156 lbs and have been maintaining for six months. I have just recently decided to try to lose my remaining 30 pounds. Wish me luck, but I won't need it. Thanks to Spark People I have the tools and support I need to be successful.

Today I joined SPARKS PEOPLE--I lost the love of my life 5 years ago and just gave up on myself.I have gained 50 lbs and feel like crap. I now have 4 beautiful great-grand-daughters who I want to see grow up. I am 65 and ready to get back on track. Alot of my eating is emotional. Hope I can stick to this

I appreciate all of the learning videos and articles. It helps me improve my knowledge and checks my skills on all levels of topics. I especially appreciate the fact that this is a free site. My weight is tracked weekly, my blood sugars are tracked daily and I can see the calories and nutrients that I eat every day. I enjoy the quizzes, too. I started with SparkPeople for the second time this spring because my blood sugars were going too high and I needed a way to help myself.

This is the first time I've seen this video or news report on the site. I've been a member and with all I've been doing the last few years I've had streaks where I'll be on tracking everything and then I won't be. I'm trying to be better because when I set my goals and use the site I make progress. It's about a healthy lifestyle and it takes a lot to make it work but this site gives you the tools, just need to stick with it. Thanks for making it possible!
