I Would Recommend Spark to Anyone!

Monday, July 30, 2012

This is the most amazing site! I love that we all have our opinions, we are all different, and we are all so considerate of each other, so supportive!

I have a friend who was an anorexic 20 years ago. She still has a hard time maintaining a healthy weight, she consciously has to force herself to slow down long enough to eat, just to try to keep 100 pounds on her 5'4 frame. I have talked to her about Spark, and she thinks it would be so terrific to be accountable as to what she eats, making sure she is getting the nutrition she needs.

It is not just a place for people who are overweight, but anyone who may be underweight, or who wants to maintain their weight.

This is just so terrific. I thank all my SparkFriends for your comments, for your support, encouragement, motivation, for just being there! Knowing you're there makes a world of difference!

So, thank you and I hope I can help my SparkFriends as much as you have all helped me!

    I'm in total agreement with you! I have met so many wonderful, supportive people here that have inspired me, encouraged me, comforted me, and made me feel that no matter what I had done and felt so guilty for that I was not alone, and brought me back.

I think the support network on here would help anyone regardless if they are trying to lose weight, maintain weight, or gain weight. I do hope you can convince your friend to join. Perhaps you could take a look to see if there are teams that support her goals.

    I'm one of the few who is here to gain and maintain. There aren't many of us (as far as I know) and there are some who discriminate, but for the most part people are wonderful. The information about how to be healthy is so valuable. Also, the ability to print reports means your friend can show her doctors what she's eating to show how far she's come.

I hope your friend joins. It's great to know that you're enjoying the site and we are helping to keep you motivated and moving forward.

    i often do recommend sparkpeople. it is such a great tool that helps us make healthy decisions. so many people may be at the "right" weight but still have lots of health issues that are caused by their lifestyle. i love how we all can get great advice and support in reaching our goals.

    It's a good site. It's crazy to me how I've NEVER had a negative comment (or read one) on here. With so many people on one website that's super rare.
