The Spark Indy Group Picture

This last Saturday (July 2oth) I made the 2 hour drive from my home in Southern Indiana up to the town of Noblesville, Indiana near Indianapolis. I know it is Thursday but better late than never, right? Anyways, it was the first Spark rally/meeting/event that I have been fortunate enough to attend and I am glad that I was able to make the drive up for it!

First, I have to thank my travel partner Tiffany (DAUGHTEROFTWIN) for making the trip up with me! It is much more fun to make a road trip with someone instead of making the trek alone! For those who don't know, Tiffany has lost over 100lbs. and has been a great friend to me since meeting her here on Spark. If you are not friends with her...YOU SHOULD BE!


Tiffany (DAUGHTEROFTWIN) & I at the Spark Rally

I also have to give a special thank you to all the speakers at the rally for sharing their stories and for being an inspiration to so many...

Beth (~INDYGIRL) who has lost 240lbs.
Lucy (CRAZYMAMA46) who has lost over 220lbs.
Tom (MCCOURTT) who has lost over 60lbs.
Tina (HOOSIERGIRLINDY) who has lost almost 200lbs.
Lee (SWDOTB2) who has lost 90lbs.

It was so nice to have met all the wonderful Sparkers that attended the rally! I am really happy to have met so many wonderful people...

I was also honored along with Tiffany & Jan-Marie to get up and say a few words to the group about our own journey! That was a really cool surprise and I was thrilled to be allowed to share my story with the group!


Addressing The Spark Rally

I wish I had gotten more pictures with everyone who was there. Unfortunately, that didn't happen but it was great meeting everyone and I look forward to seeing you all again real soon!

    You and your Spark Friends are so inspirational. I wish we had a Spark Rally near me here in Texas. It hasn't happened, so I'm living vicariously and loving every minute. Congrats on a great event!

    Wow that must have been fun meeting others who share your experience in weight loss. I know you are tall but Beth & Tina look like short women. Beth has been my Spark friend since she joined and she's had an amazing journey as have you. I would love to meet all of you.

  Cool, Brad. It's neat to actually see these people... some we are familiar with.

Is this the only state that holds these meetings? Does that mean this is where their headquarters is??

It sure must of been wonderful to meet Spark people
