Spreading the Spark Changes Lives

Wednesday, May 27, 2009

Hi Everyone - thought I'd share this post. It shows that when you spread the spark to others (friends, family, co-workers), you really could be changing lives!


CHEREENRENEE has just submitted a new topic.

Title: A special Thank You!

Message: I have to send out a special thank you to the member who shared
her Sparkpeople weight loss story in the FamilyCircle magazine! You have
lead me to a brand new life and I am so very thankful for it! Keep
spreading the word---There is hope and help here for everyone. Joining
this program has been the single greatest decision I have made for

    Up to recently I have evaded any cause for weight loss due to pass experiences that have not been successful; however since I started utilizing Spark People I have renewed faith. Passing this site on is a great idea and hopefully the Family Circle article will interest more individuals. I have already spoke with two of my friends and know that one has also started this plan. Hooray for looking and feeling better!

    I totally agree. Sparkpeople has changed my life, too. If it had not been for the wonderful people who I have met here dropping by my page and leaving comments and well wishes when I went into the hospital, I probably would have just left my weight-loss at 69 lbs. and thought that was good enough. Because now I had a condition to blame my non-weight-loss on. But OH NO, I would check my e-mail and there it would be, "so-and-so has left a comment on your Sparkpage" . I would go there and just find tons of support and inspiration. How could I NOT find a way to continue on my journey when so many of you are on this journey with me. I love Sparkpeople and my spark family. Thank you to all of you. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon ---Sherry822

    I agree with everything I have read on this blog, including the comments. I had tried Weight Watchers online for years with no success at all. I think the difference in Weight Watchers and Spark People is all the interaction. You can get great help from other people who are in the same situation, whether it be an illness or weight loss or both combined. Thanks to Spark People and especially Spark Guy who made this website possible. And all of it is free. Thank you again Spark Guy and to all the Special People in Spark People,

    I've got to agree. In the beginning I didn't think SparkPeople would make that much difference, but it does! I'm especially appreciative of our gal who was featured on Good Morning America. I found myself rooting her on from my living room....my family came to see what all the hubub was about and I told them..."she's one of my spark friends!" Of course, I had only known of her when we got the post to watch her on GMA but I felt a strong connection, because I was a part of what she was promoting. It was very exciting! Thanks Chris, for sharing, best of wishes to your continued success! And, thanks to sparkguy for keeping us all in the loop!

    Chris, thank you for striking the Spark that is igniting America. I caught the spark a little over two months ago, it then spread to my co-worker two weeks later. So not only have our lives changed for the better, but due to her new wonderful example, the long and wonderful future of her three year old son has changed forever. Our receptionist caught the spark last week. Perhaps soon the whole Spokane County Superior Court and their families will be Sparking!

    I agree with that. It is the greatest decision that I have made regarding my health also. I try to spread the spark as often as I can.

    With my work , i visit at least 4 hospitals per day, screening patients in need of rehab. I've seen many patients hospitalized for weight related health problems. Along my way, I have mentioned Spark People to at least a half a dozen clinicians a day. Many MDs have told me they are definitely going to recommend this site to their patients!! emoticon emoticon
