I am a 50 year old young at heart lady who has had my ups and downs as most of us have. I've been on Spark for about 2 years just playing around actually but it has made me aware of what I'm putting into my body. I weigh around 250 and I'm only 5'3", so I'm basically a "weeble"lol. You older guys will know what I'm talking about and if not, you'll have to Google (or giggle it as I call it). All that being said, I am truly blessed and I owe all my blessings to my savior Jesus Christ. He has poured so many good things into my life and brought me through so much, I could never praise Him enough. I'm married to my best friend soon to be 30 years come January 2019. I have 2 beautiful children; Zak and Katie who have found their own best friends to share their lives with, so with the addition of Devon and Brittanie, I now have 4 kids. I can't forget my grandpuppy Chili, who is my profile pic, whom I love dearly and babysit Monday- Friday. About 3 weeks ago, I made a decision to take back the part of my life that eating the wrong things has taken from my life. I talked with my hubby and he downloaded Spark and we have set out on this journey together. We could look back on our "fat" years as wasted time if we wanted to wallow in it, but through all our years we have been blessed by God so much that we could never do that. So we push forward logging our calories burned, calories eaten, water taken in and slowly start moving a little faster and feeling better. We all know how weight can truly hold you back and weigh you down and look forward to new adventures that would have otherwise been impossible. Sure, we mess up, fuss at ourselves but shake it off and move on. So I want to say to you Sparkers out there that may stop by and take a peak; God bless you in your indeavers to be healthier, happier and more mobile. I'm right there with you and I pray for you all the success in the world. Don't give up if you have a setback, just shake it off and move forward. Forgive yourself and others and let God lead you to the place He designed you for. Don't believe negative talk because God has a plan for you and there's nothing negative about it. Girls, feel pretty and guys feel handsome because you are beautifully and wonderfully made in His image, and God doesn't make junk. Blessing to all and Let's Do This! 💝Michelle

    I just saw your question about streaks on my comment. If you are using the desktop version, you can see the number of log-in days, as well as anything else you want to track. I also track the number of weeks that I exercise more than 90 minutes. I bounce between the app and the desktop version, but as far as I am aware, you cannot see log-in data on the app. However, whether you log into the app or the desktop, SparkPeople tracks both. Hope this helps!

    Looking to stay focused through the upcoming Holiday Season? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle? If yes, then consider joining the BL “Snow More Excuses” Challenge that starts early December. Each week 11 teams of 24 Active, do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle and If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For the Fall we had Cardio Hoedown, World Series and Sleepathon. I hope that you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Winter challenge.
