I am SO grateful to have found SparkPeople. I just happened to stumble upon the Map My Route app and it got me up and walking. I love that I can come home, bring up SparkPeople on my computer, type in what I did and see immediate results as to what that walk meant.

The site itself is still a bit overwhelming/confusing, but just like changing my diet and exercise one bite and one step at a time, I'll get it all figured out.

Just getting started. The intro video about how sparkpeople started is the kind of thing I like to support, and it will support me! I am excited. Looking forward to learning the right way to be healthy and getting the bad ways to lose weight out of my head.

I have just started the program. My goal is to reduce 35lbs. Not sure yet if I understand everything and am doing it or starting it right. Any suggestions would be appreciated that will help me.

I joined Spark People on Aug 4, 2015 and I am down 18 pounds and I am really proud of this. The food is awesome. I have to do good so the people I love will follow me in this wonderful path. I am so worried about my sisters health.
Thank you Spark People!

Thanks,Chris. I've tried so many programs and here I am still obese(Yes, I said it.). I took my wedding ring off shortly after my son was born and haven't been able to wear it. He's 32 years old now! My weight is causing me serious health issues and each year I feel worse. I am so excited to read about other people' success stories and look forward to share mine in the future. There are so many helpful pieces of information here. Want to read it all. I'm a new SparkPeople person. So far my A1c has been lower-Yeah!

Encouraged to recommit. Happy to be a member. Discussed the program with my doctor in 2013 after I lost 20 pounds. Another 17 pounds was lost by mid-2013 and I've been able to maintain that weight. The SPARk is THE BEST!

Thank you so much for your efforts Chris. I am new to the site but with Gods help, commentmenr and all the wonderful tools you have provided on Dpark people, there is only one way to fail at reaching my goal. That's to give up which I am praying I don't do. I look forward to exploring all the articles, videos and more!

Thank you Chris for your outstanding act of kindness !! There are angels here on earth and you are one of them.

Kudos to creator of this FREE weight-loss online page. It took me a year to lose almost forty pounds due to my Polio disability. What I had found helpful were the ease of inputting foods consumed and ability to print personal Records to aid with future meals and present to doctor. Extra plus was the availability of Nutritional Guides for food items. It did, however, become tiresome to keep inputting each food item on a daily basis. To help maintain my weight loss, I have continued to weigh my foods and employ the Start Page's Goal Board.Thank you. eek
