I joined spark people to lose weight and get healthier. After my two Grandchildren were born it became so much more important to get healthy to be around to see them grow up. Spark people has been so motivational ,but I have even more motivation now that I am a leader on my own teams.

I am now the leader on four teams. Each team helps motivate me in different areas of my life.

The OFF: Ongoing Fun & Fitness team is a great game team with both short challenges and two ongoing challenges.

The Fun and Games team is a games team with some short challenges.

The C.C.S.S. Creative Challenges & Saintly Souls team is a team my daughter and I started together with short challenges , a Religious Discussions forum and a few games.

The MIND~BODY~SOUL team is a great team that I hope challenges everyone with all three areas of your life. I know it has helped me.

I just turned 54 this year and am setting a goal of losing 25 pounds before I turn 55. This seems small but by setting small goals I feel like I can achieve it and just keep losing the weight 25 pounds at a time.

    From what I understand everything will be deleted, and the new SparkAmerica is for corporations to get employees into fitness programs, so it doesn't apply to me. I have been here since Oct. '07 and started at 214# and I'm at 134#. So I have found a doctor who put me on Metformin and my blood sugar went from 115 (diabetes starts at 126 and it is 84 now and I no longer have cravings.
    I don't know if I'll use My Fitness Pal or not. I know I'm not going to bother with SA since that won't apply to me as I'm not in one of the 12 cities , etc.
