March 17th: Hi Everybody i restarted with Sparks People a few days ago. Already I see how much it is helping me. Again, as in the last time I was here, I appreciate all the Members and Admins and all the info here. Thank you for sharing food info. It really really helps! Love, Barb
Hi All
I recently restarted Sparkpeople and dieting. Currently am enjoying the combination of sparkpeople with Nutrisystem. I appreciate all the Members here who share foods and I share manually entered foods too.
I joined the sparks people the first week of January 2009. One of my daughters found Spark People site. We decided to sign up, and team up and both lose all the weight we need - mainly for health reasons. Also we intend to do this before we fly out for the holidays to see all the family and some old friends - next year! Can just barely do it in that time! 93 pounds goal. Have lost a few #. Actually having fun!
Still finding my way around this site, it is a good one and I appreciate all the creativity and love that has gone into the Sparks program. That creativity and love is partly why I am doing better and dropping weight, safely, gradually.
IT'S ABOUT TIME I actually lost all this weight. I was 120 in the mid 1990s. After losing someone near and dear to me (he and I used to do yoga together and he would make me veg juice - but he passed...) Also after age 55 it was WAY harder to lose weight but I suppose didn't try hard enough to compensate for changes as I got older. I never dreamed I would be heavy so long. Now I AM trying and so far it's working! It's never too late to re-invent oneself. At 64 this is what I am doing.
All the Best of Luck to everyone.
Happy Healthy New Year 2009.

    Thanks for the nice comments on my SparkPage - you and I are the same age. I remember weighing in the 120s many long decades ago, even thought I was overweight in HS. Ha, But fighting to get back to healthier is worth it. You and I can both get there - and then do everything we can to maintain it.

    Aw...that was sweet of you to give me a bowl of soup and a pot of tea! Funny because my husband just made me a pot of tea before he left for work. And if I feel better later on, I intend to make some soup (he got me some canned soup last night but it was horrible). Love your SP name!

    I'm not having an easy time figuring out the new way Spark page works, don't see a way to reply to a post on my page, so I'm letting ya all now thanks for the posts and I will eventually figure it out. Love and Good Luck to you all. Been gone a long time, back for the past few days. Battleplan Barb used to have a Jeanne' d'Arc pic for my page, now it is a pic of me. emoticon
