It is a HEALING site, filled with DEDICATED Leaders from the tip-top, all the way down to Teams with members totaling less than a handful.

Ask a question - Get an answer, or a flood of answers. Ideas, examples, life stories, simple solutions, brilliant discussions, encouragement, and finding REAL friendships can be found *here*

Post a dilemma or serious feelings, and watch strangers come to lend a hand and/or provide comfort. Need a place where you can be you, it's *here* on SparkPeople, whether you're an introvert or an extrovert.

There's 'something' for everyone. If you need facts, figures, tracking, measuring, scientific reasoning, or a place for *fun* n' games or lightened whimsy - it's *here*

There are Teams that cater to arts & crafts, reading & travel, or deeper philosophical interests or other meaningful life discussions.

Where ever I go, there is HEALING, and even though there's the possibility of running into an occasional bully, know this, SparkPeople does NOT tolerate it, and it can (and will) be dealt with, so...this is a safe site - safer than most sites "out there" for sooo many-many reasons - MORE than I can List today, and that is why I *love* Spark.

Wishing you an endless childhood,

I love Sparkpeople because it always feels like home where I am always welcome. The support is awesome and all the people are real and try to be upbeat. The resources are fabulous and very realistic. Chris has done an awesome job putting together a resource for anyone and everyone and I thank him. I was off in Lala land for two years being too sick to do anything but once I felt a bit better here I was again. emoticon

I love Spark because there's no community like this one. I've joined other weight loss and fitness sites but this one is the ONLY one where there is no ridicule or judgement, just support! Lots of it. You can always reach out and get help, doesn't matter if you're having a bad day or just need to ask a question.

Then there are the resources, the trackers, blogs, and and and.. Lol. emoticon
