Just saw it and signed up for the free 2 weeks - I'll have to think seriously about taking it further though...but the financial commitment might just be the spur I need at the moment!

2 weddings to be glam for - the second will be my own in Spring 2013!! A good place to start...

I am going away till the 18th so I have decided just to wait till I get back but then I feel quite confident that the investment in spark coach will be worthwhile. I need a fair amount of nudging and I think the interaction will feel good. If Katy and Carolyn like it I am sure I will too.

Yes, I was pretty surprised by the 500 extra points just for trying out SparkCoach!!
I did it today for the second day. I enjoy the daily video from SparkGuy. It seems like it would be really good for someone just starting out with SparkPeople.

Yes, I signed up yesterday to try it out. I couldn't figure out where the extra 500 points came from. I sure earned a lot of points that day.

Yes, I signed up yesterday. It would be really great if there was charge but that would be too good to be true. Like others, the fee and the fact that it would increase my computer time (which I don't need) may deter me. Hope everyone enjoys their 2-week trial period.

I have for the 2 weeks but thereafter it will be too expensive - being in New Zealand, there's the currency difference to factor in too.

Smile .... it makes people wonder what you're up to ;-)

The fourth glass of wine is always a good idea before you do it and a really bad idea afterward! ;-)

It is far easier to MAKE time to exercise than it is to FIND time to exercise. You want results???? MAKE it happen.

Probably not, I've come this far on my own, I'll probably just do the rest on my own too!
It's a nice perk for those who have a lot to lose, though.

Thank you Carolyn for letting us know the price. I wasn't sure and was scared to get into something maybe I will regret. But now that I know the price I will investigate it today. I will be gone 1 wk. of the two free wks without a computer.

It is free two weeks. I am trying it, but in two weeks I willl be done. Layoffs kill budget.


I hope the kids learn as much from me as I do them.

I can't join anything unless it's free. We're on too tight of a budget. Especially now.

No. I am using Weight Watchers for the weight loss and a personal trainer to help me build my strength and cardio. I need the "hands on".

No I have not joined. Our money is very tight at this time. I know the first 2 weeks are free but I'm always leary of things wanting you to join and say it's a low cost but does not tell you what that cost is. What may be low to someone else may be more than I can do.

I just found information on SparkCoach.com, a virtual coaching site associated with SparkPeople. I am going to try out their two week "free" trial. I'm not sure if I will use the site once the free trial is done but I'll check it out at least.
