  • Spark people has helped me go from 200 pounds to 158 thanks
  • Spark people is great and has helped me get rid of almost 40 pounds several years ago. The weight has crept back on, so once again am returning to get back on track. The resources for tracking food, exercise, and especially motivation are just what it takes for me to continue on my journey back to getting healthier.
  • Hi, this is LadyLimes I am retired and joined this group because I need help reaching my goals of loosing 20lbs, need to track my calories and have been living a sedatary life since retirement five years ago. I have back, neck pains and suffer from fribomyalgia. I also have notice some weight gain and not as flexible as I use to be. So I got a stationary bike and have started to excersice 30 minutes a day and notice that I am more mobile now. So happy my niece told me about this group and decided to join it. Now I am able to count my calories as that was one of my problems. Ttyl
  • Hello everyone: I am looking forward to having more energy and endurance to live a wholesome lifestyle from now on. Thank you for your encouragement.
    SparkPeople help me get back on track. Seeing the breakdown of what I consume at each meal and how it shapes my day, helps me stay honest and real with myself. After about one week I feel lighter, I have more energy, and my aches and pains have subsided. My body is changing. Even with a five pound weight loss, calculated today, I feel smaller and lighter, as if my body has changed dramatically, which it hasn't! It reminds me of how attached I've grown to my obese body. My padding has been a buffer. I have felt formidable and large, when in fact I am short and small boned, under my padding. Losing weight frees me, the me I feel is inside the obese me, but the small person me feels very vulnerable and scared sometimes. My obesity has been the portable, personal hiding place. It feels like a great accomplishment, when it doesn't feel like an obstacle. Maybe others have felt this way too. So, I'm just trying to be gentle and kind to myself so I can stay on track, because the bottom line is I feel great!
