Good Morning America to Feature SparkPeople Member Thursday Morning

Wednesday, May 21, 2008


See her in separate interviews on "Inside Edition" & "Extra" Thursday evening
SparkPeople member Nichole Jones (NichJones) will appear on ABC's "Good Morning America" Thursday, May 22, at about 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time. We hope that her fellow SparkPeople members will tune in, tell their friends and support Nichole as she shares her amazing weight loss story and Spreads the Spark to millions of viewers nationwide. If you can't watch it live, don't forget to set your VCR or DVR to record it.


Over the last three years Nichole has transformed herself from a 240-pound mother of three to a svelte 135-pound fitness & figure competitor. But she wasn't alone on her journey; she found support and motivation from many SparkPeople members throughout the years. After reaching her weight loss and fitness goals, Nichole has remained an active "SparkPeople Motivator," providing inspiration and encouragement to other SparkPeople members just like you.

Nichole will also be appearing on two entertainment shows that air at different times around the country, so be sure to check out when Inside Edition (local listings) and Extra (local listings) air in your area.

Please leave a comment below to wish Nichole well as she prepares to head off to NYC and her whirlwind of television interviews!

Don't forget to tune-in to "GMA" Thursday at 8:30 a.m. to see Nichole's success firsthand!

    IīM ONE OF HUNDREDS OF ARGENTINIAN THAT WOULD LIKE TO SEE A PROGRAM ON TELEVISION, ESPECIALLY IF THAT HAS TO DO WITH SPARKPEOPLE. BUT ITīS IMPOSSIBLE HERE. WE CANīT SEE THOSE PROGRAMS.
WOULD YOU IMPROVE THAT IN A WAY?
WE WANT TO SEE EVERYTHING THAT HAS TO DO WITH SPARKPEOPLE.
PLEASE, TRY TO SOLVE THAT.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

    I very much am thankful to the Lord for helping me to find sparkpeople. I actually had prayed to him for a diet because I believe His is best. Sparkpeople was what I needed. Learning how to eat healthier, portion sizes and a beginners exercise program.
You are an inspiration to me because I started at 259, am now 249 and my goal weight is 140. You are also braver then me I prefer hiding in the shadows then being on the spotlight. I recently won a poetry contest that invited me to travel to Las Vegas but I wasn't going to get on that stage to give to read it. I stayed home.
Best wishes as you continue your journey.

    Nicole saw you and the other incredible women who lost weight on Extra. You all looked wonderful. Look forward to also reading the issue of People magazine too. You and the other women have shown, we can lose weight the healthy way, and not on some quick weight loss scheme. Or resort to surgery.

    Nicole you looked fantastic and congratulations on your weight loss, I wish you could have talked about Sparkpeople though, that was a big disappointment, especially when the other lady got to talk about LA weight loss program. I think this is the thrid time I've taken time out to be sure and watch programs with people on who were suppose to be able to tell what Sparkpeople has done for them and it didn't happen. I suppose people are told what they can talk about, but I don't think I'll tune in anymore. I know I am so thankful for Sparkpeople and all the support and encouragement I receive. Your picture in the bikini was great, you have accomplished a lot and are an inspiriation for the rest of us.

    I watched the interview and it was amazing that "LA WEIGHT LOSS" got the discussion, since I saw that it has gone "under" here in Florida. 20/20 did a show on complaints from members saying they'd spent as much as $3500 on the program buying supplements that the counselors "pushed." So the interview was a little surprising to me.
And then Sparkpeople wasn't even mentioned. BUT, Nichole you did fantastic!!!
We all give you hugs!! emoticon

    Dear Nichole,

Just think how many hurtles you have overcome, how many people you have he helped, how many millions of people saw you this morning & how many lives you touched with your success story, emoticon emoticon

In a world full of Hurt, War and Rising Prices it's so awesome to be pulled away from tha for just for a little while, to clear your mind and think about the possibilities if we do chose the right path towards losing weight.. You are a beacon of hope that we all search for, Your light shinning so bright brings more people to Spark People to where we actually do lose weight and help one another emoticon to and get in shape and healthy.

We needed to know and we need to grow and we are. Something new is happening , Who Knows where the road may lead us Only a fool could say so if you let me help you and the goonies help you. You'll be loved all the way.. emoticon All the way emoticon


Congrats to Nichole she has beaten her path deep now lets follow her.
