    http://www.sparkpeople.com

    It's a free site with personalized eating and exercise programs, articles, recipes, and all sorts of other stuff. You have access to a food tracker and fitness tracker. You can make your own web page and blog there, too.

    I've been on it for a couple of years and I really, really love it. It has everything I need, plus a little more than that.

    I'm Cassie753 there, too, in case you guys want to try it out. :)

    I was on Spark religiously in January and early February--then slipped big-time. Now that school (and all it's stresses) is done, it's time to get back to it.

    I started sparking (bygollis) in January. My vp got a bunch of us started on it. We formed our own team and with their help, I've lost 20 pounds. Some of us have lost more than 30!!!

    Our whole staff got on the weight loss kick and posted a total of 522 pounds lost all together!!!


    I've taken 4 weeks off from entering what I've eaten or exercised but am going to start again. I think I'll do the fast break stage again!

    GREAT SITE!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I checked it out and signed up, since I read about it here. (I'm RainStorm9 there.)

    It made me get out my scale. Yikes! I knew I'd gained some weight -- I didn't know how much! :(

    Ohhhh, sounds like what I have been looking for! Thanks!! Going to go on it right now! :) Maybe I can get my hubby to do it too, then it won't be as hard to lose weight.

    She's a very pretty girl. On here, you can see my girl -- Chloe. She's a cavalier king charles spaniel -- and as sweet as the day is long. She has a "big brother" -- my golden retriever, Cody.

    I love SparkPeople. It really helped me with motivation. I stopped after hurting my knee but plan to use it again when I return back to town. I'm also joining a gym again since my knee is better, but I need to avoid certain aerobics-type movements and I am limited with that I can do at home.

    I think I am skyview222 there.

    Just a quick update...

    I got a tape measure so that I can record my body measurements in addition to my weight. I just entered the first measurements in SparkPeople, which is something I've never done before. I'm excited to see those numbers go down in the coming months!

    I am on SparkPeople and I will tell you that it is FABULOUS. In the beginning, it is a little tedious to keep track of your food and learning how to navigate the site is challenging b/c there is a lot going on.

    Right now I am down 16 pounds and 19 inches b/c of Sparkpeople. I also started the Couch to 5K program and my Spark Team has been hugely supportive in helping me to keep running and keep going. My first race is on Friday morning!!

    There are other Spark Teams that you can get on based on hobbies, profession, etc. The teacher's spark team is fairly active. My Couch to 5K team is my most active team. :cool:
