Spreading the Spark

I know a lot of people have included "losing weight" on their list of New Year's resolutions. Me too! Kind of! I'm not inspired and pretty much the procrastinator. I have been planning on losing about 20 pounds for the last 3 years!

Anyways, I joined a new kind of social network for people looking to lose weight, eat healthier and build friendships. I have spent the better part of the day browsing the website and trying to motivate myself to get busy and lose the weight.

I know there's a lot of weight loss communities out there but what I like about SparkPeople is their free membership and lots of perks.
Today I officially took the first step to dropping pounds and printed out my official promise and taped it to the refrigerator.

24-hour access to SparkPeople is now available to you FREE of charge!

I'm impressed with the free membership. Pretty nifty!

I'm off to read some more healthy tips! I guess I should check and see what the points are all about too! It's normally one of the first things I read about when I join a community. Oh well, this social network is more about my health than my wealth!
