This January 21 issue, on newsstands now through January 18, features three SparkPeople members: Brook (BROOKIEBOMB) who lost 66 pounds, Melissa (URBANNENA) who lost 130 pounds, and Nancy (SEYSARAH) who lost 90 pounds.

    Hello everyone I'm new here and I'm already hooked on reading all of this wonderful advice. I just so happen to browse through an issue of Woman's World that I somehow over looked early January and I'm so glad I did.

Not sure yet how to do all the fun stuff yet like posting my picture but I can't wait to find the time to do so. I'm busy now a days exercising but I won't quit, I'm so excited about how it's helped all of you and I'm praying that one day I too will have a testimony. emoticon

    Wow!!! It is phenomenal to see people making remarkable changes that impact their lives. I read their profiles and have found that many are courageous, self-motivated and determined to make positive changes towards great health. I want to commend them on their journey and wish them luck in their healthy futures.


PS I am glad you were able to find compatible buddies.

    Congratulations to all 3 of you wonderful ladies. I get Woman's World every week and I continually see the magazine featuring this diet, that diet, lose 10 pounds in a week, etc. Well, I picked up my issue as usual and saw on the front page about another new weight loss program. I checked it out, read and re-read the article. I figured I would look into it. That was on January 15th 2008, on January 16th I signed up to SparkPeople. Since that time, I have lost 20 pounds, exercise everyday, use my treadmill that had been accumulating dust, began eating healthy. I have been planning my meals, faithfully entering all the areas that Spark People offers. At first, I was a little apprehensive about finding my way around the different areas on the site, but I found a wonderful team right away (talk about kismet). They helped me so much it was unbelievable. Already they seem like an extended family. I have also accomplished something I have not done in 24 years. I went skiing at a local ski area that has an adaptive ski program for people who have physical disabilities. The last time I went, I skied from the top of the mountain! Is that a motivator or what. Thank you ladies and SparkPeople from the bottom of my heart.

    If it wasn't for the article in People (thanks to my mom for subscribing and saving me the issues!!!), I would have never have heard of this sight. You ladies all inspired me to check it out...and subsquently joy.

Mega-congrats to everyone on achieving their goals and being an inspiration. I hope you appreciate knowing that there is one person in the world whose life you have impacted...and I'm sure there are many, many more who read the articles and landed here.

Bless you all and continued success! ! !

    Ellen invited the three spark girls (ThinnyMinny, Mrs. Honeycomb, and Fruityful) to blog on her site. It is a great opportunity for us to "continue the conversation" and to let more folks know about Spark People. I think she is really supportive of us and Spark People. If you would like to reach our Ellen blogs, just go to and scroll down the page 'til you see the link to the blogs. Please leave us a message if you will; that will let her know the blog is actually reaching people.

    I watched the Ellen show even though she turns my stomach. I thought she was almost rude and making fun of the whole idea.
She didn't give them enought time to say much of anything and so my question was..Did she just use this as fill in time when she had nothing to say... Don't be sorry that you missed it cause if you blinked your eyes you would have missed it anyway. Just my opinion sorry if someone else thought it was great.. Maybe part of it is that I get disgusted when I see her anyway. lol

    I saw the Ellen show it wasn't until almost the end that they were on. She kind of rushed through it and Ellen was doing a bit of joking about it, not much, but I think, enough of it to see by my eyes, which was I'm not sure too well accepted by the 3 ladies as well I think that they were hoping for a little more serious discussion and not just a little excerpt at the near end of the show. But it was ok. I didn't feel as if they got enough time to talk about things.

    I wish I could have watched the Ellen show.
It's nice to know that there are people joining because of the exposure. A local radio station here in my city started a group and has been mentioning it on air.
It's great! Keep spreading the spark.
