Check newsstands tomorrow for another SparkPeople member in the news!


30-year-old SparkPeople Motivator Roni Yonka (RONIROO2U) reached her 100-pound weight-loss goal with help from SparkPeople, and Woman's Day magazine was so impressed by her story that they will be featuring it in their January 2011 issue, which hits newsstands tomorrow (Dec. 14). Inside, you'll see Roni's amazing before and after photos, along with details about the ah-ha moment that started her weight loss journey, and how she did it.

Please join us in congratulating Roni by commenting below or on her her SparkPage , and by picking up a copy of Woman's Day starting tomorrow so you can read her story.

Thanks Roni for helping us Spread the Spark by sharing your story with Woman's Day readers!

  Please don't think I am trying to take away from your wonderful accomplishments when I post this ....it is NOT really to you,but I was not sure where to post it.Imagine how very disappointed I was when searching 3 towns for this article and finally finding the magazine.I pulled it out of the bag immediately so I could read ALL about a fellow Sparker.I was so very disappointed,as it was an incredibly short article and SP had published on it's site EVERYTHING that was in the magazine,right down to the picture.If I had known that I would not have spent the money on a magazine that I NEVER buy.Why the push from SP to buy,when they had already told the whole story that was in the article??
Again, no reflection on you and your wonderful success!! I wish you all the best in this journey!!
