Talk Spark

Saturday, August 04, 2012

Talk Spark. Casually or with bravado , talk Spark. emoticon

emoticonI have been a member of Spark People for several years. At first, I was gung-ho and wanted to save my friends' health by getting them into SP. Two joined and one is active.

emoticon So I gave up the hard sell. But I continued to talk Spark. I quoted research I read there. I did some healthy eating as positive example. Got up early to do some Sparkin' . And included some activity in my own life. All along, I would only casually "spark talk". I have the "I love Spark People" cling in my car window. I talk Spark.

emoticonImagine my surprise last month when my daughter said she'd referred her friend to Spark People. (I thought she never listened to me.) Then yesterday, my niece wrote that she had lost 35 pounds on Spark and thanks me for mentioning it. emoticon

Talk Spark, the life you help may belong to a dear one.

    I tried to talk diet to my friends too, but it fell on deaf ears. This time I'm not telling them. I figure that when they see me next year, they'll be interested.

    When asked how I lost my weight, I always say "Exercise, eat right and Spark People". Very simple.

  I mention SparkPeople but it's up to them to act on it. Their loss just might mean a gain (pun intended)

    I know what you mean. I gave some friends SP info, the joined, and then never followed through. I still talk about it every chance I get; I'm not giving up on them yet.

    I talk about Spark People frequently. You never know who might be helped.

    I do the same, particularly with the research. And I always recommend the trackers. They are easy to use and, best of all, free.
