  I'm so happy the word is spreading. The change in SP over the past year has been terrific. I found SP on a diet discussion group on Yahoo! Others were touting all the wonderful, fast weight loss programs. Spark People members jumped in and told them the success they had with a slower program that incorporated healthy eating, exercise and promoted a healthy lifestyle rather than simply diet!

Thanks for all you do!

    I'm glad the word is getting out about SparkPeople. It's the most useful internet site I've found in a long time. Perfect strangers become friends who don't tire of hearing your struggles with weight loss. Tips from other members help because they are tried and true. The articles, tools and exercises are plentiful to allow us to tailor the journey to fit each of us. My friend emailed me about SP several times - I can't believe I didn't come here sooner!

    Great Segments, All of them! I myself joined SP after seeing the members on Ellen back in January. I had been wanting to do something about my weight for so long and joining SP has finally made it a reality and not just a dream. I have made so many wonderful friends in the process that are a complete Godsend. If it weren't for them I just don't know if I'd have continued. Above the benefit of the life changing experience, They make logging on every day worth the while!!! Thank You Everyone at SparkPeople!

    I don't know where I would be without SparkPeople. All these years, weight loss was for the rich people. Now I know that even being of limited means we can eat right and exercise even if I didn't belong to a gym. I thought I knew everything there was to loose weight. Wow was I wrong.

Thankyou SparkGuy

I still cannot believe that this site is free to the public - truly the best site I have ever used including the ones that I have paid for. How is it that you keep doing what you do?! I am going to pass it forward and spread the spark!

    Way to go, Sparky! You know I keep trying to tell Prevention Magazine that they should hook up with you but so far nothing. Could it be that they want to get money from people for their Flat Belly Diet site?! This is one of the main things that amazes me about this site! It's free! You're in it to HELP people, not to make money!
Keep up the wonderful work!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was so glad someone sent me the spark site. 22 weeks gone and 33 pounds of weight and 17 inches off 3 places on my body, but I know there are more inches, just only measured what sparks said too. At age 57 I have tried every weigh loss program out there, but the good old fashion way is the best and seems to work for this Grandma:) I love the energy level that has come my way. Anna

I joined SP Febuary 11-2008. Not quite 2 months yet and have already lost 17 1/2 lbs. The people here are so supportive. The resources such as the calorie counter, fitness tracker and everything are awesome to have. For free at that!!! I LOVE SP!!! Im so glad I found this place.
Thanks Mr. SparkGuy!

  I stumbled across SPARKPEOPLE after looking at an ad on a "daily quote" that I have been receiving for 4 years. I NEVER look at the ads! Your site is really good, and the free part is what has kept me using it. I enjoy the emails everyday. They keep me motivated with good information. The real kicker... I'm from Cincinnati and live right down the street from SparkPeople's location! Howdy Neighbor!

    GO SPARK!!! and that means each and everyone of Us!! Ty Chris for getting Spark started, but it is up to each and everyone of us to keep carrying the message and keeping this site free!!

Not to mention, You never know whose life may depend on us sharing SPARK. Personally, I would love to see the Emotional Aspect of SPARK covered (depression, Bi-polar. etc...) SPARK is a lifestyle change, not just nutrtition. I look at thenumber of people with emotional illnesses and how SPARK is helping us and am amazed.

Be Prepared, this is only the beginning!!!
