What can I say about Spark?? What can't I say about Spark!!
Since joining this site I have learned so many things about not only weight loss and nutrition but about myself as well. I don't know what I did without this site before!!
I do know that when I wen through my non-internet days after joing this site it was horrible!! I missed the challenges, tracking,and most of all - ALL my friends here!! This site is truly motivating and inspirational!! I felt totally lost and without support during those days - even though I get a lot of support at home from my son and my boyfriend - it's just not the same as interacting with people who are going through the same things that I am.
The support system here is one of akind!! There are so many different types of people going throuhg the same issues who generally help and support each other. This is something that is rare and hard to find on any internet site.
I recently talked to one of my co-workers and asked her if she knew about this site (she had mentioned that she had downloaded the app for SparkPeople to her phone). I felt that I had found another kindred heart!! We spent just about our entire break talking about Spark!! What really tarted the conversation was that she heard me mention to another friend of mine that my doctor had put me on a diet to control my sugar.
Being diabetic herself (she just found out) she asked me what my doctor has me doing and it just went from there. I told her all about the different support systems, tracking tools and groups that are available here and then seh asked me what groups I belong to. I named a few (but not all of them) so we'll just wait and see if she joins any of the ones that I am one.
Spark is a truly wonderful site and I NEVER want to go without it again !!!
