    I first heard of SparkPeople through a repeat on Nov, 19, 2008 of E! True Hollywood Story Investigates: Diet Fads. I've only been a member for a couple of days, but already I am so inspired and motivated. No more crash or fad diets for me! Thank you so much SparkGuy - this time I KNOW I'm gonna make it to my goal weight! emoticon

    Seeing this website and listening to the people that were using it is why I joined SPARKPEOPLE. In the past two weeks, I have referred four people to this website. So far one has joined and the three others say they are planning on joining, I sure hope they do. This is one of the best online programs that I have seen our used. It is very user friendly and helpful. Thank you so much for starting this website.

    I am proud to say that Kristina is on my SP Biggest Loser Challenge Team and we are just so excited to have a "celebrity" among us. I've known Kristina (through the BLC) for almost a year and she's such an inspiration and friend to us all. She did tell us she wished they aired more of what SP is about seeing how her and Tina were both interviewed for about an hour each. So it really was E! that decided what they were going to air. They talked about a lot and it just wasn't shown.
Chris / Sparkguy - I too want to thank you for creating such a wonderful site. Everyone should be so lucky to be involved with such a great program and "family"!! Tammy F. , Niagara Falls, NY

    WoW! Great Show. I am curious how many new members our site will recieve after this very insightful segment. SparkGuy...if you're reading these...Thank You For your magnanamous decision to start such an educational, motivational, inspirational, and incredibly supportive community and all for FREE! You do understand however that there could be one bad side effect to all of these pounds being lost for good though don't you? The Earth may start spinning faster due to the many, many pounds that are being lost and who knows perhaps cause some sort of natural disaster :D Thank you for trying to make America healthier and happier. You are the true inspiration. Yolanda T. Cleveland OH

    Awsome, I am glad they showed the extremes people will go to before ending on a really positive note. I hope this will also help put Sparkpeople in the national spotlight. I DVR'd it so I can show the program to others

I am very thankful for you guys and what you have taught me

    I caught the E! show, it really opened my eyes as to the desperate lengths people will go to lose weight--like the 14 year old girl who had multiple lipo operations and of course the tapeworm guy.... I could NOT believe he was serious!
That was how I found out about Sparkpeople what an amazing place. I am so impressed. This place exudes enthusiasm!I am so happy to have found you all.
I have a good fifty pounds to lose and I feel now I have a fighting chance

    ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!! I watched it and recorded it! Shows that awareness doesn't alway lead to be best choices! Spark is the bomb! I

am curious, too, on how the wonderful ladies were chosen. They mentioned the Amazing Race in their futures (Team 150, I think). Please keep us abreast of their progress. I wish them and everyone at Spark all the best in their endeavors cause clearly, we are doing the right things!

    Garint, I wish they could have talked longer also, but I was glad to see that they were on at the end of the show. I thought it was important that they ended the show with a healthy alternative to all the other approaches. It was the last thing that people saw and as CrzyCatlady pointed out, the segement was long enough for others to catch the website name AND they were now free to move to the computer!

    I noticed online that it will re-air twice on Sunday noon and 8pm EST. I was really impressed with the segment. It may not have gone into much detail about all SP has but it was more than enough that I bet we see a bunch of new members.

    I was very proud to see how positively they presented Sparkpeople, I just wish that they would've gone into more detail about the Sparkstages, told about, and explained that you don't have to use the meal plan suggested if you don't want to, and about all the articles on every health & fitness topic you can imagine. There is so much good about Sparkpeople, and they barely scratched the surface!!
