Does SparkPeople Work?
Friday, October 28, 2016
You can look at the success stories and tell that SparkPeople does indeed work.
Perhaps the question should really be "Will SparkPeople work for me"?
I have been a member for 10 years and am now heavier than when I started. But I still believe SparkPeople has been a positive influence. Without SparkPeople I would be even heavier than I am now. So in that sense, SparkPeople has already worked to limit my weight gain during stressful times during the last 10 years including my cancer, my husband's two deployments, and at one time having four teenagers- all girls.
But can I make SparkPeople work for its primary goal of healthy weight loss? The answer is yes.
I cannot control how fast the weight goes away, but I can control how many times a week I exercise and what foods I choose to eat. Recording those walks and foods in the SparkPeople trackers gives me an incentive to keep exercising and eating right.
