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.
