Many Types of People


Sunday, September 30, 2007

Hope everyone is doing well! I just got back from a bike ride in the sun.

I love seeing how many different types of people use SparkPeople. This was a great post from a military spouse:

*****
When out spouses leave on deployment to fight for our country,
we need all the support we can get. Weight gain is an increasing issue amoung military spouses, due to emotional overeating, depression, etc.

Utilizing your website has provided not only a sense of community, but has also pulled a great deal of us out of our displacing and frustrating situations and into empathetic, supportive, and motivating atmosphere.

When our loved ones come home, they will be coming home to a healthier spouse. When they go away again, they will be comforted in knowing that we have such tremendous support, both in weight loss, as well as in dealing with the absence of our loved ones.

Thank you for everything, Chris. You and a true blessing.

Angela

    Thanks Chris,
That is an inspiring comment from Angela.

All of us need support just cause the stresses of modern living seem so much more taxing and focusing on our own health can be difficult after so many years of neglect. Some times we aren't even aware of how bad our health is untill we lose the ability to do things for ourselves. I'm not even talking of how we look; maybe some of us don't look that bad but are in poor health regardless.

You don't know how frustrating it was to get sent to the 'please subscribe' page everytime you ask a question or try to find information on some other weight loss sites. Not all of us have the money for that. We have already wasted money on various weight loss products, thank you.

I just wanted to thank you for your generous gift of founding this website for all of us. All of us, people who just need to lose 10 pounds or less to people who need to lose much more, to people who just need a healthier lifestyle.

THANKS AGAIN,
Kathy
