The members voted and have chosen this restaurant with a super diverse menu - everything from kebabs to casseroles, soups, salads, salmon, talapia, pasta, spaghetti and meatballs, pizzas, sandwiches, and wraps. Their menu is HUGE. It is also among the more reasonably priced options. Many reports have shown the Mediterranean folks to have less heart disease and less fatty food related diseases and attribute it to their diet!

Please consider joining us. If you are a spark member who has attended these events before, you know we are a super friendly, accepting, happy, non-judgmental bunch of folks who love meeting new members and catching up with familiar members. No one regrets a spark meet! emoticon emoticon

Please let us know you are coming and if you are bringing anyone. You can let us know by posting a reply on the team page thread at:

I like to give the restaurants a day or so heads up even if they don't take reservations so they are at least prepared for us.Here's to a marvelous meet up! emoticon

Welcome to our two new leaders - Debra and James!

I would like to invite you all to take a moment to welcome to leadership San Antonio Spark Team's own HEALTHYHABITGAL (Debra Sue Higginbotham) and JELAWTON3 (James E. Lawton III)! These two Spark Veterans bring a whole lot of knowledge, know-how, determination, and inspiration to the team and I am so looking forward to working with them to take the SA team to new heights! Thank you and welcome to you both!

Fall Dinner Meet and Greet!

It's time to break bread (or salad) together! It's time to welcome new members, reconnect with established members, and introduce our new co-leader POOKASLUAGH. It's time for some of you to meet MJ-SHE-BEAST and TAMARA6905 in person for the first time. It's just time to get away from the screen and press flesh and get to know each other a little better. Spark meet ups are always fun, welcoming, and happy events.

We will be meeting Saturday, September 29th at 5:30 pm for dinner at Ruby Tuesday on IH10W and Wurzbach. It sets right between Mama Margie's Mexican Restaurant and the Drury Inn Suites. If you go to and click on So Connected, you will receive awesome deals and coupons to help offset the cost of dinner. Ruby Tuesday offers a lot of healthier options as well as a great salad bar. Almost all meals can be adapted to your needs and preferences. Another great thing about dining there is they won't add in an automatic gratuity for a large group...though I do hope everyone will be generous as they can to the awesome servers who will take on our group!

Family members are welcome, but do bear in mind that the restaurant will need a pretty close count in order to accommodate us all. Please be sure to RSVP no later than Thursday the 27th by 5:00 pm so I can call in our final count. It is VERY important for you to RSVP if you wish to attend.

Your leaders are so excited about this. We hope you are as well. We so look forward to meeting some of you and seeing some familiar faces as well. Remember, Spark Meets are non-judgmental, loving, happy affairs where EVERYONE is important, special, and wanted. Do join us!

Here is the link to RSVP on the Spark America event site. You will be asked to log in again using your spark information.

p.s. The original meet time was for 6pm but due to some reservation confusion it had to be changed to 5:30 pm. If you have already RSVPed and cannot make it before 6:00 don't worry, we will save your seat!

Welcoming a New Leader

She has lost nearly 90 pounds, 60 of them in the 18 months she has been a Spark member.

She has battled plateaus like a Super Hero.

She plays Body Detective, isolating what does and doesn't work, always sharing her findings and information generously.

She has made healthy living a true habit and her personal lifestyle in a big way.

She is an active Spark participant and puts herself and her journey out there as an example.

She motivates, inspires, encourages, and supports.

Sounds like good qualities and accomplishments for a Spark Leader to have, doesn't it? That's EXACTLY why POOKASLUAGH is our newest San Antonio Spark Team Leader!

Stop by Amanda's Spark page and congratulate her and welcome her to her new role on the team. We are very happy to have her join us!
