A co-worker told me about it when she learned I was trying to lose wt. She had used it in the pass w/ Weight Watchers but liked SP better because its not prepared foods w/ all the chemicals. WE eat better !! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I use to belong My-Calorie-Counter website (kinda like this one but with a way more awkward
message board). I saw some folks making posts about SparkPeople there and tried it out, haven't left since.

Possibly channel 7 news, or Good Morning America?

I looked for a nutritional tracker, years ago I had a nutritional tracker program then when I found Sparkpeople I discovered so much more than just nutritional tracking.

a co-worker told me about it. He knew I would not be offended and that I needed help. He was right...I was at my highest weight. It took me a few months to finally try it. He told me he had used it to change to a healthy way of eating.

I joined in 2006; I saw an ad for it in Quick and Simple magazine. The magazine is no longer published, but I've been a loyal member all these years.

I think I googled something like "diet tracker."

My parents have been using a program called Diet Power for many years--I wanted something like that which was online/free.

I have been a member since August of 2011.

I joined for the first time in July or August 2006. A friend referred me.

I have a new user name now, though, because I forgot all the info for the last one.

How Did You Find SparkPeople? emoticon

(Share how long you have been a member)

Member Since: 9/28/2011

I Found Spark after my "failed" diet with Atkins (lost 5 lbs) for 8 months. (before that was South Beach Diet Lost 10 lbs..)

Lost and Gained Back in that vicious Diet Circle..

(I'm 5'8) Once I hit my highest weight ever: 197.7 lbs and needed to go shopping for BIGGER clothes and pants bc my size 16's were cutting me in half, I broke down in a dressing room and started balling!

I pulled myself together and REFUSED to buy anything.

I came home and searched for free support groups and found Spark!!


Within a few weeks I lost an inch or two and some weight where my 16's were not cutting me in half and I moved forward from there.

I have lost 24 lbs and many inches since! In a size 12 and XL shirts/tops now..

I need to lose 24 MORE lbs and more inches to reach my Goal/Maintaining Weight now and I will do it right here with Spark!

My Goal Weight is 148 which should put me in a size 9/10 or maybe even smaller..

I have not been near that size in over 10 years!!

I will never be the skinny size 0 girl before marriage and a baby and I don't want to be that.

I want "meat" on my bones and curves.

Just healthy, tone, fit and feel comfortable in my skin/clothes!
