I didn't find anybody on spark that was using Noom. I have been using it for about four and it's a 16-week course. I like it because it really does get me to think about why I overeat and why I continually fail at keeping the weight off. So I'... Read more

I wonder in this will be the last time I post a blog that starts with the title, I am back again. It didn't take me long to fall off the wagon the last three times. I wonder sometimes if it is possible to actually stick with it after failing so ... Read more

I need to visit the phone store. My email is not working & Spark is only spotty. So if you don't hear from me, you will know that it isn't because I am not thinking of you. I lost 2 lbs last week counting calories. I have had some spotty days ... Read more
