Another SparkPeople Member Featured in USA Today Weight-Loss Series


Tuesday, April 14, 2009



About a year ago, Ebony Lugo joined SparkPeople and set out on her journey to healthy living. Since then, the 23-year-old New York City resident--known as SWEETZMIX--has lost 48 pounds and been named a SparkPeople Motivator!

We're not the only ones who have noticed Ebony's success; USA Today featured her in its sixth annual Weight-Loss Challenge in the newspaper and online at dietchallenge.usatoday.com. The series focuses on losing weight on a budget. In addition to joining 100% FREE SparkPeople, Ebony started cooking big batches a few times a week and eating breakfast at home every day instead of dining out, saving hundreds of dollars a month!

Read Ebony's story here, and stop by her SparkPage to congratulate her on her success!

    SparkPeople will eventually spread to every country because the web is world wide. And people will be featured and asked how they did it, mentioning Sparkpeople. Perhaps one day, everybody will know about SP!!!

    SparkGuy...Thanks for recognizing your mission in life to help others, especially me and others like me who have good intentions, but sometimes falter when it comes to our own health.
SparkPeople.com is awesome and it works allowing me to see when it is me and not the excuses I am trying to fabricate about why I am not following my own plan. This website is truly realistically functional, and it possesses all the tools that are all in-compassing for people, like me, to stay focused. emoticon emoticon emoticon
