Welcome to SparkPeople!

My name is Sarah and Iíve been a member of this site off and on for a few years, and I do love it. I was here a few years back and lost 20 pounds, then went away and stopped using the site and gained all that weight back.

I have tried other diets and found that what I truly love about SparkPeople is the community, I believe it really helps keep you on track. Utilize the community here, add friends, join teams and challenges and post to the message boards.

Best wishes on your journey!

Thanks everyone! I know myself and I know that I'll only keep maintaining this weight if I'm accountable. Support is so very important!

Hi everyone!

I just joined to help me track my weight, food, and fitness as I transition from weight loss to maintenance. I joined the Take Shape for Life system in the end of January, starting at 274 lbs. Around September 22nd, I hit my 100 pound weight loss goal! I've been obese my entire life and I'm never going back! To pay it forward and provide as much support as my health coach and TSFL gave me, I'm now a health coach as well.

Transitioning on Take Shape for Life is a multi-week approach where I eat fewer meal replacements and slowly add back healthy foods. So this is the perfect place for me.

I started running/walking in the spring and I finished my 1st 5K on September 30th. My pace was 14:33, but I did it! I'm already training for the Turkey Trot 5K on Thanksgiving morning and I want to get down to 12 minutes or less.

I look forward to being a part of this community!
