Hi! I'm Fiona and am a 45 year old wife and mother from the UK. I have been a member of Spark since June 2008 and, although I haven't lost the weight I wanted to (12lbs), have found the motivation to keep on going and not let my weight creep back up.

So, here's my story:

I have been trying to shift the last stone I put on when I was pregnant for 21 years! Every year I would try again either with Weightwatchers or Slimming World or another online diet programme and every year I would lose a bit and then not be able to afford to carry on with the programme and give up; hoping that I can keep it going myself. Who am I kidding, I can't do it myself - who can? So, here I am trying again, the difference this time is that when I got to the stage where I would have had to give up due to financial pressures I have been able to continue due to Spark being free. Thank you so much SparkPeople.
Update: Since writing the above, I went back to Weight Watchers as I needed the accountability of weighing in for someone else every week. I reached my goal weight, and have maintained by going to get weighed regularly, for free as a Gold member, since July 2014.

The other reason I love SP is that I can record my fitness easily by linking my Google Fit account.

Thanks for visiting my page. If you would like to add me as a friend, please do so. If you would like me as a buddy, please ask.
