I've been dieting since I was 12. I have tried every diet from Atkins to the Zone, lost and regained hundreds of kilos. I had my only child at the grand old age of 45 and I'm fed up with people asking me whether I'm his mother or grandmother. I have various health issues but I want to be around to see grandchildren so I have to get my weight under control, and keep it off this time!

    The yo yo stops here! This is the last weight loss site you need to look at.
    The goal of this website is to teach people to live a healthy lifestyle, not just a 'diet'. That means exercising regularly and eating healthy nutritious meals for the rest of your life in order to lose weight and then keep it off!
    Spark's tools and program encourages you to learn healthy living one step at a time, working on good habits until they become second nature. It is not easy, and it will take time getting used to it, but will be rewarding in the end to stick with it.
    Tracking calories is the key. Accurately weighing and measuring everything you eat is vital, as guessing can too easily go over. I was good with exercising, but had never tracked my food before and that made a huge difference and opened my eyes to just how easy it is to consume more calories than your body needs. You must also make sure you set the Fitness Tracker to how much exercise you do in a week so it can give the Nutrition Tracker the right calorie range to stay in to lose weight. I actually really enjoy juggling my food choices to make sure I get the right nutrient ratios and stay in the calorie range, its really quite challenging LOL. But getting them right means your metabolism will be fueled properly, important to make your exercise pay off and burn those calories!
    Check out SparkRecipes.com, it has fabulous healthy recipes and has revamped old ones to be better! Incidentally, the Mediterranean diet is supposed to be the best there is.
    I wish you all the best with your journey to a new you!
