I Turned My Doctor Into A SparkPerson........

Saturday, August 21, 2010

Almost two weeks ago, I had some medical tests done and met with my Primary Dr. on Thursday for the results. We spent about a half hour going over everything and when she came to my list of medications and was reminded that one had been eliminated and one cut in half, she asked about what I was doing to lose the weight and what kinds of exercise I was doing. Her computer was right next to us, so I suggested that she go to She did. I then showed her all of the information available, the tracking features, exercise suggestions, teams to be joined, message boards, etc.,etc. She was impressed!!! She asked if there was anything that I didn't like about SparkPeople and that was an easy question for me to answer........."..I can't seem to get off the computer!!! "
She laughed and promised to check it out further.

    That's cool I work for a Dr. and tell patients all the time about this site and for the ones who don't have access to the internet I print off info and mail it to them.

  Wonderful! I really like the resources here on spark where they have templates already for us to print and use. It makes it so easy to Spread the Spark. Check it out if you have not used it yet!


at the top of your start page there is a button for "Spread the Spark" click it and look to the fight side down a bit and your choices are listed. They are all great!
