Hello SparkFriends! If you are interested in learning more about the history of SparkPeople and how we can make it free, here is an article that talks about this .

Please note: Since we have millions of members, unfortunately I can't answer SparkMails that ask questions about someone's program or about site features. Please ask these on the message boards and you're likely to get better support than I could give.

I love to see so many people using SparkPeople to reach all types of goals. Each new success story we see motivates us to keep making the site better. Thanks to all of you - and our great team - SparkPeople has turned into a grassroots movement that is spreading around the world!

SparkCheers!

Member Since: 11/19/2001

SparkPoints: 57,532

Fitness Minutes: 44,468

My Goals:
1) Working on my new and improved fitness streak! I'm currently at 170 days, headed towards 200 if I can! (remember, this isn't extreme - I only need 10 minutes to keep the streak alive)



2) Make SparkPeople into a company that helps millions of people (I'm the Founder and CEO of the company and am passionate about helping people reach their goals!).

My Program:
I do a well-rounded fitness program that I can fit into a very hectic lifestyle (having a young company and 2 young boys is challenging!) - most of my fitness program can be done at home. This includes cardio, strength (mostly pushups, crunches, lunges, body squats, and other body weight exercises), sprints and jump rope, stretching, and tennis-specific practice.

My wife helps me eat fairly healthy and I help motivate her on fitness - we're a good team!

Personal Information:
I live with my wonderful wife Karina in the San Francisco Bay Area (even though SparkPeople is headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio and that will always be my hometown).

Other Information:
My wife Karina and I have 2 young and active boys. I love seeing them mimic my exercise. Some of our best quality time is exercising together, they love exercising - especially bouncing on a mini-trampoline.

Hi spark guy and spark team. I have enjoyed your website for over 6 years and it keeps getting better and better. I have a suggestion I'd like you to think about. If there was some way to link my favorite foods on my food tracker to a SP meal plan so it would use the foods on my favorite list to make up the meals for the day it would be so much easier for me to stick with tracking. Most times the substitutions provided on the meal plan don't fit with my dietary restrictions or preferences.

Thanks for your attention and keep up the good work!

I'm not arguing a point, but rather trying to understand one from your Sunday 3.22.15 email.

One of the things you mention in that email is " Specifically, the eating habits that our children are learning now if they go down the wrong path dramatically increase their odds of:

•Weight problems
•Type 2 diabetes/pre-diabetes — the rates for this disease are almost unbelievable
•Depression and anxiety — in our early days at SparkPeople, we were astonished to discover the high percentage of our members who reported some form of depression or anxiety
•Cancer
•Heart disease
•Serious digestive disorders"
(end of quoted material)


I would like to know how poor eating habits increase your chances of getting cancer?

Excellent e-mail on sweets in schools. I'm so glad you are leading the discussion in your schools, and I hope you will take it national.

Our children matter. They deserve real good, not sugar sweet sickness, and the same struggles we have seen in our overweight adults.

We know what to do. We just need brave parents to encourage, even insist, that we do it!
