The spark site is the best post often and don't get overwhelmed there is lots of info on there.  If you can join a local team--I'm a leader and we have get togethers for fun exercise and some of us walk daily or hit the gym together

I just signed up and it looks great so far!  Thanks for the information.  I have lost some weight but have lost motivation and maybe this will help me get back on track.

Hey ladies, I just wanted to add the site that I just joined, it's called mytrainerbob.com, it is bob harper's blog and forum from the biggest loser. So far it's great. I is user friendly and it has the forum to get your support. I think this site and bob's approach reminds me a lot of weight watchers. Good luck

MAKE IT A GREAT DAY!

Dottie's weight loss zone is another great site.  It's free and there are lots of interestering things.   Good recipes, and a buddy site.
