Years ago I joined Sparkpeople because my doctor told me I needed to find a program to commit to in order to lose weight and get healthy. This had been a great place with many amazing people and I did find success. But with many things in life, we stay for a while and then take a break or leave. I have been in and out of this Spark universe for many years but more out than in, during the last few years. I had lost over 50 pounds when I was here before and I have since gained it back and a little bit more. What I do know, is this place works if you invest your time to reading the articles, tracking your food and actually exercising. The connection to others keeps you motivated; sharing cheers and struggles helps. So here I am back again. I have a summer ahead of me now that school is over and my intention is to be here daily. I have already joined the Summer 5% Challenge and planning to use that to my full advantage. If you have never done the 5% Challenge before, sign up and give it a try. It is a great way to get motivated and to meet a great group of people. Again, your success depends on your investment. Team URL:

I will definitely return the favour. If you are new to Sparkpeople, say Hi too. It's great to connect with people here. So yes, people come, people go and people return. I am here for the summer for sure and want to recapture the success I found here years ago. If you are in this with me, let me know. Happy Summer of 2020.
