    What have I got to loose, besides 40 pounds? I have been doing the Spark Your Fitness Boot Camp during January and I want to keep the momentum going. I've already read the first five chapters of the book and I'm inspired to move on and get on with the program. Let's go!!! emoticon

    I only found out about the Spark a couple days ago. I am so excited to receive my copy that is due by February 1st. I have been nervous about trying to lose weight again, (like for the millionth time), but with all this support and an opportunity to start with others, well, I can't pass this up. Oh I hope my book arrives early...

    Contest only for USA as are all Spark contests. So those in Canada have no incentive. I understand why, just tired of the emails about this contest and that one that do not apply to me.

Getting more than a little overdosed on all the hip about the book. I know you want to get the word out about the book. But as a long time member of Spark not sure why I need to buy the book, when most of the info is already on the site.

    I just ordered the book.

I have been suffering from Lyme Disease for the last year and a half, which has made it difficult to exercise, but now that I'm starting to feel some more energy again, this will be a great way to get me motivated and back to losing weight!

    I welcome the challenge. I am in the OZ Fitness weight loss challenge for at trip to Australia. That challenge ends on March 19, so this will give me a boost for the month of February. The Crossfit club that I workout at also is a having a fitness/nutrition challenge starting on Feb 9 thru April 9 in preparation for a 5k and 10 mile run on April 9 so this will also keep me headed in the right direction. I have read the book and am following Part 2. So far, I have lost 20 lbs in 30 day and feel better everyday.
Good Luck to all and keep a smile on your face.

  I have ordered "The Spark" from my bookclub; but I don't think it will be here by February 1.

Once it comes I will follow the 28-day plan; it's motivating to think I will be following it along with many others.

I'll have to look and see if the 'code' is in my bookclub copy and perhaps join late?

Good luck to all who enter! emoticon
