A Rash of Spark Spreading!

Sunday, December 06, 2009

I'm telling EVERYONE about SP! Today I read in our local newspaper about a new fitness trainer who was on Biggest Loser....just opened his own business. I sent him an e-mail singing the praises of SP and encouraged him to spread the SPARK to his clients!

I ALSO read about a local pharmacy offering self-help support groups, and then a registered dietitian...emailed them both about SP too!

Last week I met with our local bariatric surgeon and spoke with HIM about SP and the benefits, encouraging him to suggest SP to his clients.

Earlier in the fall I wrote to both of our local colleges health departments encouraging them to leave SparkPeople fliers around for the new college students coming in.

Occasionally some folks around me roll their eyes when I get on a Spark kick, but hey, when you've found something as special as SparkPeople how can you NOT pay it forward?!? :-)

I've been bouncing back, getting in my daily cardio and 3 x week ST. Tracking my food and doing okay...we'll see what my Weds. weigh-in brings in the way of results!

    Great sparking Don! I try to tell everyone about spark. I get the eye rolls, but I get an equal amount of people grateful for the suggestion.

    Very good idea. Didn't think about writing all of those people. I would love to get more people in my area into Spark, and I think this may be a great way to do it. Thanks!!

    I've been spreading the Spark to my TOPS group (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) as well as my doctor.

    WHoo hoo Don, I can't wait to get into my MD office in a week or two and show them what SP has done. Your profile image is amazing. WTg You are changing lives and inspiring those around you not just in our cyber world but also in your hometown. Your neighbors have a good friend in you, even if they do roll their eyes at your SP kick. Keep on Sparking.

    Great job Don! I know what it is like to have people roll your eyes but how can they deny the changes that occur in you. It is the excitement and enthusiasm of your healthy lifestyle that will get people involved. Keep it up! You are doing great! I hope you get the results you want on the scale!
