Six Years With Sparkpeople

Friday, April 26, 2013

I reached my goal six years ago and can hardly believe I've stayed slim, fit and healthy this long and haven't gone back to the yo-yo- dieting I did for most of my previous years. Once I found Sparkpeople and faithfully logged everything I ate and how much exercise and sleep I got, it was easy to see where I needed to make some changes. The changes have now become a way of life and I feel better now at the age of 82 than I did when I was a teenager. I've learned so much in these 6 years with Sparkpeople, it would take a book to tell it all and that book has already been written. It's called "The Spark." Everything in it is now engraved on my mind and I'm so glad I found Sparkpeople. I just wish everyone who wants to be slim, trim and healthy could join me in this great endeavor.

    I'm at about 3 1/2 years on Sparkpeople. Could I ask whether you've gone through ups and downs when you thought it wasn't worth it to log in or do the tracking. That is where I am at right now. I'm going through the motions of tracking, but not getting any pleasure out of doing so. I'm at my weight goal and have been for about two years.
