I was at school one day wasting time in between classes and decided to check in on SP. Another student sitting at a computer behind me happened to see the site I was on. Does that sparkspeople thing really work she asked? I said as a matter of fact it does. I said its like everything else you get out what you put in. She said with a laugh that she too had joined and then never went back. I began to tell her how the people on this site had became not only allies but friends. I thought of how when I first started out how for a few weeks I had really been on the program faithfully, and that how for a time I had kind of slacked off and hadn't really given it my all. The words I spoke to her rang in my head. You get back what you put in. But during all this none of my team mates had once criticized me or put me down. Even though they probably knew I wasn't 100% at times they still stood behind me and excepted me as one of them. I turned back around and told her that if she would log in faithfully and get involved with teams and record her eating and fitness it would definitely work. I have recently gotten a scare that made me not only concerned for my health but also my husbands. He had been told that he had an enlarged heart. Again I went to my sp friends and they were there to support and give encouragement. We are now not messing around we are 100% dedicated to changing our lives and incorporating a healthier life style. Does SP work. My answer would be yes. Because even when your not giving it your all there's people and resources right there ready to help.
