The Spark!

Sunday, January 03, 2010

I received my copy early - it was shipped Priority Mail, and no, I didn't request that or pay for it so it must be another present from SparkGuy!

Several months back I was asked to sign a waiver so they could use something I had written - you know I printed and signed the waiver and mailed it in!

But I told no one because I knew that things change and it was not a guarantee that I would be in the book.

It is quite an honor to be included in a paragraph in a book this size and considering how many members there are here at SparkPeople. So when KENNYWHEELS contacted me yesterday that he found me in The Spark, you know I was elated! I hadn't yet found me on my own. KENNYWHEELS even told me what page, page 39!

I had to trust SparkPeople - I had to let go of my antiquated ideas and trust that SP knew better than me - anyone that has ever taken part in a 12-Step Program will recognize, "I had to let go and let Spark show me the way."

I do not believe I am allowed to put what is in the book here - they do own it now. So just let me say, SparkPeople works!

Sometimes you must take a giant leap of faith to follow the program but SparkPeople works!!

I can't say it enough, SparkPeople works!!! Start today with Stage One of the Spark Program and you too can realize your dreams.

Dreams really can come true! SparkPeople Works!

**Edit for the Bonus Challenge for the SP Spark Your Body BootCamp:
My goal is to tone up more now that I have reached goal weight.
weight 122.4
neck 12.25
chest 35.5
waist 26.5
hips 35
thighs 18.75
calves 14.5
arm

I had to greatly modify the video challenge - just can't hop around so spryly on these old knees. But I purchased some foam interlocking mats yesterday and I'm ready to try again next Sunday!

    Hi! I'm so proud of you! You're in a book! You know, I was proud be mentioned in a book a long, long time ago:) It was a vampire website directory *giggles*! Yes, way back in the day, I had an extremely popular vampire website... it was a bulletin board type thing. Anyway, they mentioned my website addy in a book and talked about it as well. It was a massive book too!

    I'm sure this all means nothing to you, but I just wanted you to know that I know how you feel and that I am very proud of you! I wish that I could get the spark book so that I could see that page 39:)
