SPARKPEOPLE: A Community with Tips, Tools and Support for Healthy Living
Going it alone doesn’t always work. SparkPeople is an online healthy-living and weight loss community. (No, this is not a paid endorsement.) It’s sort of cross between Facebook, Blogger, Weight Watchers, and WebMD. I joined a couple of months ago. You can see my profile here. The amazing thing about SparkPeople is that it has so much good stuff to choose from—all free. It has an impressive collection of sound information on nutrition, fitness, general healthy living, and motivation. It has official message boards where you can get help from dietitians and trainers, plus user-initiated discussion groups based on shared interests or health conditions. I have joined “Living Healthy in Our 40s,” “Bloggers,” and “Science, Engineering, and Math Enthusiasts.” It’s easy to keep a blog, and to friend, follow, and message other users. There are weight loss and fitness plans and many more tools for planning and tracking your weight loss, exercise, and nutrition efforts. There’s much more, but I’ve just started exploring the site. If you are a member, tell me what you like about SparkPeople.
