To all my Spark Friends

Monday, November 16, 2009

I came across this article through the RealAge Newsletter (by Dr Oz) today.

"You might drop more preholiday diet pounds if you tap into this simple technology: e-mail.

Yep, in a study, dieters who got a little love, support, and motivation through e-mails dropped more weight than the dieters who hadn't received cyber support."

I can attest that all of the support I have received through my Spark People friends has meant the world to me. I have learned so much, and the encouragement and accountability has kept me on track, even on days when I felt like letting go. So, I don't want to wait until Thanksgiving to tell you - I am so thankful for you. You mean the world to me!

    I've only been on Spark for 4 days now and I can already feel the love and support. It is amazing to me how attached I've become in such a short amount of time. Having people around who are going through the same as you is soooooo nice!

    The combined effort of many far exceeds the meager attempt of the one. It is true that there is great support on this web site and Spark People has been a real encouragement to me.

Let's all join together and commit to making it through the holidays with as little "damage" as possible. In fact with some encouragement we might even come out on the "loss" side of healthy living.

    This is so true. Knowing that we are pulling for each other, and putting in writing what we are striving for, strugling with and overcoming - that combination can't be beat! I too am so thankful for for all of you!

    Thank you CASE4GRACE for sharing this. I agree support means so much in this journey. That's probably why support groups are out there for everything. It's great to hear cyper support works as well. I think SparkPeople proves this.
