The Gift of Spark

Friday, February 17, 2012

Yesterday, after a particular stressful meeting, I logged into my email and saw a list of messages from my fellow Sparkers congratulating me on being listed as a Motivator of the day. I am so touched that those I look to for advice and inspiration consider me motivating.

Prior to joining Spark, I had been able to lose weight, but I have never been able to keep it off. The first couple of years I was on Spark, I quit gaining but wasn't losing either. Two years ago in April, I started losing again and lost another 60 lbs, bringing my total loss to 189 lbs. For the first time -- I have kept it off. The credit goes to my Spark team members and friends. You have given me an incredible gift -- through your understanding, advice and friendship, you have taught me how to keep the weight off.

Thank you!!!
