    Oh wow! They always ask them how they lost the weight, I wish they gave her the chance to say she was a Spark Member.....

I know I am always curious to see how they did it....

Leah you look fantastic!

    It's a good thing she faced her struggles while she is still young. It's hard to change. But it's harder to live with regret.

    Too bad they didn't let her mention SparkPeople. Guess you can't be part of Joy's Fit Club and SP????

    I'm so inspired by your story. I think it is wonderful that you are doing this while you are still young. It gets harder to do as you age. You will have all these wonderful, fit years ahead of you. So smart!

I asked friends to watch the show but I am so disappointed that SparkPeople wasn't even mentioned. I do a lot of talking about SP but get a "blank look" from most people. I need to lose more weight to inspire them myself I guess. Today some friends gave me a hard stare and said, "Haven't you lost weight?" People are finally beginning to notice. That encourages me to keep going, too.

Leah, thank you for your story. I loved it.

    She looked fantastic. I too was disappointed the 2 times I saw a show and they didn't mention it. Then I was thinking they might have cut it out for time.

    I watched the show and she has done wonderfully - but was so terribly disappointed she didn't mention Sparks. This is now the 2nd time we've been asked to watch a success story from Sparks and no mention of Sparks. I feel this is the greatness site out there and when I have success I will and am letting the world know-lol my world anyway..-

I do see it is mentions in the on-line but what about T.V.?! We want the nations to know what a wonderful place Sparks is.- Jo

    Yes I did watch it! She is such a great inspiration to us all and now she's been able to inspire so many more with her TV appearance. I must say I was a little disappointed that they didn't mention SP, but I see that at least the on-line story mentions it.
