I found SP while looking for a nutrition calculator. I'd lost 25 pounds without much of an idea about what I was doing. I was amazed and grateful to discover that Sparkpeople is so much more than a calorie tracker.

I know from experience that making small, consistent positive changes snowballs into an avalanche of change. I didn't know that I would need to pay attention to every day if I wanted to hang on to the benefits of those changes. I didn't know that nothing is or can be allowed to be more important than health. Not studying. Not chores. Not even family demands.

But I am learning that now.

    Thanks for the friend.
    I see from your SP that you are not yet ready to use the SP tools.
    There is no perfect Spark person, just a bunch of us that use the effective tools available to help us learn how to eat better, be healthier, and live healthy forever lives.
    When you are ready you will know.
    Good luck.
