    Hello I am a 77year old grandmother an active for my age. I found this site while this week and need help. My goal is to get down to 148 lbs, but I am finding this very hard. I am 160 and need to get my weight off because of severe arthritis. My metabolism seems very slow. Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    Hi! I am new to Spark people. This is my fourth day of tracking and I love it! It is so easy and it gives me information on percentages of fats, etc. so I can look at my day as I go and adjust my foods for the best benefit for me! I am excited!!! - 8/12/2015 8:23:13 AM
  • Hi! I'm new. I've been using Spark about a week now. I want to lose about 50 lbs. at the rate of 1 lb. per week. Losing weight is harder at 61 than it was when I was in my 30s. LOL I've been really committed for the past 5 weeks & have lost about 5 lbs. it hasn't been easy, but I've decided that if I don't begin to live a healthy lifestyle now, I may not have a life, or a life worth living in the near future. I love to sew. I am working on some quilts now. Although it is not an active hobby, at least it keeps me from mindless eating throughout the day. My most common form of exercise is walking, but I have been adding water aerobics & I just tried one of the workouts on the Workout Generator. It really helped wake up some underused muscles! I look forward to meeting others to help motivate each other to reach our goals! 😃 - 8/4/2015 2:19:56 PM

    Hi, last week I signed up for the On-line "Beyond Diet" program and I had a problem logging into their site over the weekend as I wanted to get started. I tried over and over and could not log in. I went looking around and found this blog and read about many people being disappointed because they were having the same problem. I began to think I was scammed. Finally, after clicking the reload page that comes up after multiple attempts to log into the the site, it said really small to enable third party cookies (just for Beyond Diet) and then clear out your cookies that have accumulated on your computer. I went into settings,( under the internet set up) and did just that. I shut down, rebooted and tried to log on to the site and it worked! If this happened to me, I've got to think its happening to others. It just didn't make sense how many people had no problems, liked the program, then there were others who could not even get on the site who felt scammed. Just wanted to share this in hopes it help others. - 8/3/2015 12:41:56 PM
  • Jen helped me I was asking for the wrong thing I needed a meal plan, she showed me how to find that and into my first. Did my normal exercise 20 Second workout. Followed by 90 mins on the tread mill. Tomorrow the 20 second program six sets of weighs, at seven different positions. The weights are not heavy. I've been doing this with the exception of the 20 second workout for several ,months now. That alone did not help in losing weight. I'm currently 233 my goal is 185. Looking at the index I should be 165. I actually believe that would to little weight. First I will try to get to 185 and think abut if I want more or not - 7/19/2015 6:15:17 AM
