It is time to take control of my life. After a visit with my doctor, I am embarking on a new journey of creating a healthier me. Yes, I’ve got to lose weight, but it is more than that. I need to get strong, get active, and get healthy–mind, body, and soul.
As I was absorbing the enormity of my task, I read Lisa Jordan’s blog where she talked about joining SparkPeople and the huge help it was to her. I immediately hopped over to SparkPeople and was blown away by the site. It is a huge community of people working their way to good health.
SparkPeople has incredible tools to aid you on the weight loss journey. The site is free and they have a nutritional tracker, an exercise tracker, plus over 200,000 recipes to peruse as you plan meals. They track your weight and count your calories according to the meals you list in the Meal Planner. It also tracks different nutritional values, such as calcium, sodium, fats, fibers, etc… There are also forums and discussion boards, as well as member pages to visit where you can read many inspiring success stories.
I’m not delusional. This site is not a going to be a miracle plan for losing weight. But it looks to be a great tool for those who need some guidance.
What have you found to be the best tool for losing weight and getting healthy?
***Stop by The Writer’s Alley tomorrow where I will interview Kaye Dacus and give away a copy of her new release, The Art of Romance. It is such a good book and you don’t want to miss the chance to get your hands on it!***
