My Doctor couldn't believe it!

Monday, November 19, 2012

It's been 6 weeks since the last appt with my Doctor. This morning when he looked at my chart, I noticed that he thumbed back at my last visit, and then the one before that one. Then he did it again.

"Okay, how did you do it? You've lost 12 pounds in 6 weeks!"

I told him I've been using SparkPeople's nutrition and fitness trackers, and explained how the program works.

"How much does it cost?"

When I replied "Free", he reached into the drawer for a pen and paper.
"How do you spell that? I have some patients who need to know about this."

    It's great that you've lost so much and are able to spread the spark in a unique way.

    Way to spread the spark! This site really is a gift isn't it! Before I found SP I SWORE there was something wrong with me that I couldn't lose weight. I really thought I was watching what I ate. For me...I really need to weigh and track EVERYTHING and yes exercise does matter and I DID get my butt in gear and worked away at 5 miles of Walk away the pounds today and my boot camp. It does pay off.
I love your positive attitude.
Hope the rest of your appointment went well.
Spark cheers

    That is freaking AWESOME! You should have the Doc give out your id so that you can get the referral points. ;) That is really spectacular.
