Spread the SPARK: Join the National Weight Control Registry!

Sunday, May 24, 2009

I joined the National Weight Control Registry last year and they've sent me their annual questionnaire packet to complete to update their records. I LOVE being part of this study because I sing the praises of SPARKPEOPLE every time I correspond with them!

From the article below, here are the instructions on how to join:

Join the Registry: If you've lost at least 30 pounds and kept it off for at least a year, you can join the National Weight Control Registry (which is especially looking for members of ethnic minorities and teenagers). Visit or call 1-800-606-6927

Here is an article which summarizes what the NWCR is all about:

I think it's a terrific project to study successful "big losers" and to get the word out at to what has worked so others can join our ranks!

    I'm glad you posted your comment on my blog. I just realized I'd been reading the rules all wrong. I thought I needed to get to my goal weight before registering, even if I'd already lost more than 30 lbs. Now that I read it again, it's lose 30 and keep it off. There's a big difference there. I need to go back and see what date I hit the 30 lbs gone point and register if it was a year ago or more. THANKS!

[Edited to add: I just signed up! Thanks again!]
