I just rediscovered a website that I joined over 2 years ago when I was planning my wedding. I recently started getting emails from them again, but have been sending them to spam. Until I realized that they weren't spam...they were emails from this great site that assists in weight loss and health goals. Who knew?!?!

Check out the SparkPeople website, if you haven't already heard about it. For those who are interested in either losing weight or just being healthy, it is a fantastic site. I think it'll take a while to even discover all that it does offer, but a few things off the top of my head that I love about it:
  • You can track your weightloss, minutes in the gym/doing cardio/resistance trainging.
  • You can measure your waist, hips and neck and then track those along with w/l.
  • You can log your food intake. They have a huge database of food, so as an example, I had 2 cups of Blueberry Morning this morning with 1/2 cup of skim milk, so I just did a search of Blueberry Morning and added it, then it tells me the carbs, fat, calories, etc. I did the same for milk and I was set. It's a great way to journal food without having to look everything up on your own and without having to write everything down. It does all the work for you!
  • You can track other goals, for example, I put in a goal of drinking my water. So I can make sure that I'm getting it in.
  • There are recipes to search. I haven't spent much time on this but it's good to have the option of searching for healthy things.
  • There is a message board, which I also haven't spent any time on, but it's nice to have as well.

Anyway, I thought I would share because I know that there are a lot of people interested in getting healthy!
