SparkPeople has been a great community for me for over 10 years. I've met some great people. With the help of this site and the support here I was able to lose 53 pounds. I love the active healthy lifestyle I am now living. Of course, life is not without its ups and downs and I am far from perfect but I make course corrections and keep moving forward.

I'm still very blessed to also have a good support system at home. My husband and I do everything together including working out. And I am surrounded with other family that works out and eats healthy which helps keep things on track.

I feel like back when I was losing weight, there were more people engaged on this site. I am hoping to meet more people and continue on a healthy journey.

    Hi, I was wondering how you were doing. I got my official website up and running and thought it might be helpful to you. It's I added you to my sparks page so I wouldn't forget about you. I noticed in your blog about the junkfood around and wondered if it's not good for you why are you letting it be a good choice for them? Seems odd to me. Hope you are okay and setting goals you can meet and not feel sabatoged already. Good luck! Hope you've been able to have some soda free days too!

    Maybe this will help with the soda addiction. I used my empty soda bottle for water. I even got the 1 liter size so that I can just refill it 2X to meet my daily water intake minimum. It has REALLY helped a lot. Good luck.!
