Very cool! I haven't seen much mention of Sparkpeople in Canadian media, but I wish it would get more recognition here as it's such an invaluable tool for weight loss and general overall health and wellbeing!

Spark People was mentioned in a Good Housekeeping magazine that I got from my Mom. I tried it and loved it. I kept the GH subscription going, for 3 years this year.

Yes I have seen ABC, NBC, Today show etc all feature Spark People site etc. I find it is usually at the times of the year when people want to lose weight ie. New Years, right before summer.

How often do we see our favorite lifestyle change site mentioned in the news?

Today we received our monthly "record" which is a publication of the Seventh Day Adventist church sent out to all it's members. One of the tenets of our church is healthy living and a healthy lifestyle and as a group Seventh Day Adventists are known for their healthy lifestyle leading to good health and longevity. Today in the Record we ran across an article talking about working on a healthy lifestyle and listing sparkpeople as a very good resource and giving the web address. This is quite a compliment coming from this particular group! Here is the link for the online edition: http://www.swurecord.org/issue/77/33/2046

Are you seeing this type of recommendation in other publications?
