USA Today Features SparkPeople Members' Stories


By: , SparkPeople Blogger

The USA Today Weight Loss Challenge kicked off today, and we're happy to report that two SparkPeople members are featured in this great series by Nanci Hellmich. (We were also part of Nanci's "Dieting on a Dime" articles.)

USA TODAY's sixth Weight-Loss Challenge, which will run every Monday through mid-May, focuses on losing weight on a budget.

The featured dieters lost weight by making small changes that were inexpensive to implement. Some simply bought new shoes so they could start walking or running. Others joined inexpensive gyms. Many of the dieters are cooking more and eating out less, and all are trying to save money on food.

Rae Goodman, known as MISSG818 on SparkPeople, is mentioned in two articles:

  • Dieters lighten up on tight budgets - How they did it

  • The battle to lose weight doesn't have to break the bank

    SparkPeople is also included in the Diet Selector article in USA Today!

    SparkPeople has had some other great mentions in the press recently:

    FOX L.A.
    The Star-Tribune in Minnesota

    (Oh, and be sure to pick up a copy of USA Today on April 13, too! Ebony Lugo, otherwise known as SWEETZMIX, will be featured that day!)
