    I just watched the story by following the Inspirational Video link in the SparkPoints list.

I am surprised by what I learned. I have been using SparkPeople for several months on a very regular basis. I got the book and have been reading it in chunks. but, until watching the video, I had not REALLY fully realized the intensity of your (SparkGuy) commitment to the project, and to us!

This brings tears to my eyes. I've been trying REALLY hard to turn my life around, even though it's sometimes tough. And I can see that a lot of other folks here are doing the same. Knowing there is a person who cares enough to put his lifeblood into this (and not just another mindless, faceless corporate entity) really touches me.

I have a lot of reasons to be pursuing my journey to health, and your investment in us gives me one more good one emoticon

    Like I've told other members. I belonged to the Biggest Loser Website for a year. I always felt like they were pushing their products more than helping me. Thanks for a great site. I love how easy it is to track your nutrition. (now if I can remember to do it) Sorry I missed the show. I was out of town. Is it on U tube? :)

  I am so grateful to have found this site...I had been a member of another site and was unable to continue with it, when I overheard a discussion about this site...I have to tell you it is a godsend...I have lost 70lbs in the past year and I was terrified that if I didn't have a link to track my daily routine as well as have encouragement I would likely put the weight back on! Thank you so much and I am sharing the Spark!

    We were so disappointed tonight when we turned on Fox news only to find that the SP segment was not aired due to a hostage standoff situation. I hope it will be shown at another time and that you will be able to let us know when.

    Sparkpeople is the best site for healthy living. I have seen fast results with my own eye. My daughter-in-law started using Sparkpeople at the beginning of the winter and she is already at her goal weight.

It's the best site yet.

    I am so glad this wonderful service you have started is making the news! It should be recognized because you have created a great service for so many people suffering from obesity and who have felt, up until now, that there was no help or support. Your site has made a world of difference in the lives of so many people and we would like to say: THANK YOU!

I also won't be able to see it here in Ontario, Canada. Do you think you could show excerpts of the interview on the SP site later? That way we all can see some of it.

Let people know that SP is much more than a website. It is like having a whole other family that is nurturing and supportive. Thanks for making SP a reality!!
