Catch SparkPeople Members in Health & Essence Magazines

Thursday, April 24, 2008

This month you can catch two SparkPeople members in two different national women's magazines.

Lisa Wells (LisaPooh34) is featured in the May 2008 issue of Health Magazine in the "I Did It" section. Lisa has lost 90 pounds and gives credit to the SparkPeople community for helping her at anytime, day or night.

C. Simone Rivers (JOURNI167) is featured in the May 2008 issue of Essence Magazine in the "Fit & Fab" section. She has lost an amazing 130 pounds and recognizes her SparkPeople friends for helping her break bad habits.

Both of these issues are available on newsstands, so grab a copy to show your support for these two amazing members. Also, be sure to leave a comment below to congratulate both Simone and Lisa on a great job of "Spreading the Spark"!

    Congrats ladies on your successful weight loss. It's really inspiring to know that it is possible to lose weight successfully by eating right and excercising. emoticon

    Motivators such as yourself are so helpful to me. I tell myself, I can do that too. They did it. They are not celebrities. They are ordinary people just like me. Why not me? All I need to do is keep my goal in the fore front and met the small goals along the way. Congratulations on your self realization and on your sense of duty to share your story with other people that just need a "spark" to get going on thier road to self-fulfillment.

Congrats to both of you for sharing your story and inspiring others to follow your lead!
