You losing 45# is the best advertisement for SP that I can think of. Way to be an ambassador!

I told all my parrothead friends about SP today. I had my cards ready to pass out, but I didn't have enough with me. They were excited to hear how I had lost 45 pounds. It was good, but I ate too much.

I had not thought of posting the SP cards on bulletin boards--that is not a bad idea. Or maybe one of the flyers. To date, I have just told people as they ask me "how I've done it". Thanks for the thought.

I have to print off some more of the SPARK "cards" and pass them out when I'm talking to people like at the beauty shop. You can pin them up on bulletin boards, etc.

Yesterday I told one of the top "fitness consultants" at the gym about Sparkpeople.com so that he can tell other gym members and new members about it. He said he would check it out and wrote down the website. Good "publicity" for him and good for SP. I think everyone should benefit from this AWESOME site. I just hope it doesn't get overloaded and start having delays, etc.

I went to Baptist Health Care leadership development today (we do this every 3 months). The focus was on wellness. I got the chance to tell the person who puts these trainings together about SP (She also works in cardiac rehab). She invited me to join the wellness committee for BHC and told me she would check out SP. I told a lot of other people about SP today, 'cos they haven't seen me in a while and they ask about the weight loss. I've started writing the Web site address on the back of my business cards so I can just hand the cards out. Maybe I should get sparkpeople business cards!

I did a lot of talking about SP today while I was doing the body fat analysis at the Women's Expo. Maybe we'll get some new members!

I tell everyone through a blog on MySpace, I created a little note to attach to all of my outgoing emails, I tell people, and now I can wear my Sparkpeople t-shirt I got yesterday.

I got an email invitation at work to attend the "3rd Annual Obesity Congress." I won't be able to go...of couse...I'm not even sure how I got on that email list. But I replied to the email and told the person about Spark People and how it has helped me and so many others. Who knows, maybe they'll be talking about us at the 3rd Annual Obesity Congress!

Almost every day, someone asks me what I am doing to lose weight. I tell them about SP. Sometimes they just just look at me...I don't think they believe me when I tell them I was eating way more calories than I thought I was and SP helped me to get that under control. I'm sure they are thinking to themselves that they already know how many calories they are eating...just like I used to think...oh well...you can lead a horse to water...but...you know the rest of the story.

I told 2 ladies about SP at church yesterday. They both commented on my weight loss.

I've had several co-workers notice how loose some of my clothes had gotten, so I sent the some info. Our guidance counselor joined, but I don't know if she's been very active.

I also have widgets from SP on my MySpace and Facebook!

Cool BEACHBELLE and COURT! Today I met with the staff that handles our call center. They hadn't seen me in a while and all of them noticed the weight loss and, of course, wanted to know what I was doing. I told them about SP and this team. They were very excited. Maybe we'll get some more members!

I have done both those things. In fact, I won the "Chub Club" at school for the first semester! (Unfortunately, the clinic aid who ran the chub club became quite ill and we aren't doing it now.)

I also chat on 2 message boards that were a spin-off from an old message board for the Sweet Potato Queens (to which I no longer belong. Ever hear of them?) I learned about Spark from one of them, and my excitement got that woman involved again, and now several others have joined as well.

I have also told several teachers at school and some other friends.

I told our school nurse about it. We are having a weight loss competition at work and she was asking what everyone was doing. Hopefully she will check it out.

I told my doc (Dr. Willis) and his nurse about SP today when they noticed I was 20 pounds lighter than last year. They were quite impressed and both said they would check it out.
