Today I am thankful for SparkPeople! I found this site three and a half years ago when I was searching online for free diet plans. I was hoping to find free vegetarian weight loss menus but what I found was much, much better than anything I had imagined. The vegetarian meal plans on Spark don't always work for me, but all of the other tools on the site are incredible!
SparkPeople has helped me get through some of the "roadblocks" on my journey to getting healthier. I have found friends who can relate to my issues with emotional eating, my reproductive difficulties and my family's increasingly challenging dietary restrictions.
My SparkFriends have also shared my joy when I finally became a mom, my success with the C25K running program and so much more. It seems like there are teams on SparkPeople for just about anything. I found support when I was breastfeeding my son, I found a team for sharing knitting ideas and I found the super inspiring "DONE being the Fat Girl" team. The DONE girls make this journey fun.
I love meeting new people and cheering them on as they work towards their goals. My SparkFriends are the reason this site is so helpful to me. It's wonderful that we can all come together to share and learn here for FREE!
