Real World Spreading the Spark!

Sunday, January 21, 2007

Here's a great story someone shared about spreading the spark to others!

Hello...my name is wendi. I have been on SP since sept of 2006...just wanted to share a story with you.

I was out shopping today when i heard the two sales girls and one of their friends talking in the store that i was at. The were going on about losing weight and how difficult it is. They cant get motivated, whatever they lose they gain right back, etc and so on. This went on for about 15 minutes while i was walking around the store. Finally i went to check out and asked one of the girls if they had a piece of paper and a pen. I proceeded to write down the SP web address and started telling them all about it. My success and the success of others on SP. While i was standing there one of them actually picked up the phone and called her friend and told her to pull the site up.
I was totally empowered and grinning from ear to ear when i left. I hope they will take it to heart and you will be able to help another person or two or three. Thanks so much for this site. It is a God send for me.

    Love it! I'm ALWAYS talking up the SPARK wherever I go! Now & then I'll print up flyers and take 'em along and leave them here & there...but it's always BEST when the topic of health and wellness comes up on its own and I can start talking about my success with SparkPeople and describe all that this wonderful online community has to offer!

    I am so glad I took a moment to read this. It has inpsired me, and so has your website. It is informative, intellgent, friendly, welcoming and extremely motivating. I have been struggling with my weight for 15 years and joined SP after a co-worker shared it with me. Now my husband is a member as well. We have both lost 20+ lbs. so far in the last 2 months.
    Our schedules are very full, so I am trying harder to explore the website and read the articles. They are a tremedus help.
    Thank you for all that you do!
