    I'm in!!!
    Also I've invited PINKYPOO, she might accept it if she peeped back to SP.
    She was doing great in 2009, then got probably too strict and quit logging.
    Then gained half of it back and quit SP. She probably didn't eat enough veggies/ protein and sticked with the food pyramid with the carbs on top. And got hungry. But she has got what it takes.
    Unfortunately I know no one else.
    Most of my current SP friends are at maintanance.
    I told two people whom I know personally about this site,
    it's tricky, because there are quite intime bits on our pages.
    One of them thanked, had a look, read around and has done it effortless in half a year. The other one told me off, stating she didn't have any problem because of her excess weight. At least 150-160kg, I guess.
    No more spreading the Spark for me.

    I know the deficit counting works. But only if you are honest, log every bit,
    and stick with it. I believe one won't stick with it if one's got hungry.
    So you need a healthy diet, too, in order not to get hungry.
    Sugar and white wheat makes you awful hungry. The more you eat of those the worse it gets. For some it's really the easiest option not to eat them at all. Or really very occasionally, once or twice weekly, not daily!
    They are more fattening for addicted people than dietary fat, I think.
    Not everybody reacts to them badly but who does should avoid them.
    Vegetables, fruits and enough protein are key to success.
    Not going hungry/ eating every 3-4 hours is important, too.
    Planning your meals in advance is sometimes unavoidable and easiest.
    Also important are the relative modest regular deficits,
    preferably around 4-5-600 kcal a day.
    If a day doesn't go as planned at all, one should know it's not the end of it,
    it's just that, a bad day, it happens to everyone, and one should continue according to plan.
    If you set up the team, you should write something like this as a sticky,
    just with better english :)
    because most people don't know these. I didn't and I'm a doctor.
    You might omit the sugar/white wheat bit, it's not mainstream.

    Starting over with running is very rewarding.
    You are never able to improve that fast/that much as when starting out.
