“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

Thanks LITA! Spark Guy and team has certainly condensed things for our use. I will look for the announcement to share with my teams.

I really appreciate all the efforts of SparkGuy and his team! Changing things up with our workouts is good for our bodies, changing things up on the site is good for our minds.

Viva la SPARK! :-)

Hi Everyone

I hope you like the new Start page!?

You may have seen the official announcement last week (if not, click here if you'd like to see it):
www.sparkpeople.com/blog
/blog.asp?post=introducing
_a_brand_new_sparkpeople_e
xperience

I know this is a big change to an important page, so I appreciate your help as we make this change with the goal to better help you reach your goals. I also thought I'd add my perspective on what we are trying to accomplish since I've been working with our team on this change for the past 6 months or so and feel very passionate about the big picture of this launch. I thought it would be fun to share some of the "behind-the-scenes" goals for this launch since we have always considered our members to be part of the "SparkPeople Team". Thanks again for your support!

There is a lot going on here all at once, including:

1) The new Start page that better highlights what really makes the SparkPeople program and site special for helping people reach goals in all areas of life. Specifically, I'm very excited about:

** The 3-step format that makes it clear to see the different types of features available on SparkPeople (interactive tracking tools, expert articles and videos, a supportive online community, and coaching to reach all kinds of goals

** New features like the Goal Board are intended to highlight the integration of the best from health and fitness with the best from goal-setting, motivation, and leadership. This the real foundation of the program that originally helped me reach my goals and then spark a co-worker to lose 50 pounds and have her tell me I changed her life -- and then this became the original spark that led to SparkPeople. I highly suggest that you set this up including uploading your own photos that motivate you. When I uploaded action photos of my kids it was a great motivator seeing them on my Start page along with my own goals that I wrote.

** I'm really excited about the Team Bonus Points. I've been working on this with our team for a long time now as a way to both motivate people to reach their goals by having a connection to your different types of "favorites" -- but then also this serves as a foundation for spreading the spark to many different types of organizations, including companies, schools, cities, and much more. I'll have much more to share about this soon.

2) A new 60-Second Daily Check-In that anyone can use to reach goals. This means that for the first time ever, you can share SparkPeople with any of your friends and we'll have a solution for everyone -- whether it's the full comprehensive SparkPeople program, or this new 60-Second Daily Check-In that has the best of SP all on one page. We'll be sharing more about this new program soon, so stay tuned. (edit: To respond to a great comment from a member: we do expect that some people who start off using the 60-Second Daily Check-In will then transfer to the full SparkPeople program because of all the benefits. Part of our goal was to have a simple program that can immediately appeal to anyone to get more people involved. Then, they can either continue the simple program, or add some or all of the more comprehensive program)

3) We'll be making a big push for our SparkAmerica leaderboards (including all countries -- one of our goals is to build out these leaderboards one step at a time and expand to all countries over time -- possibly with major partners).

I can't share details yet, but we are also building allianes with major partners in a way that could make all of this huge and give us all a chance to both reach our goals, help our family and friends reach goals, and make a major impact on the world.

This has all been coming together for years. I'll be putting together more writing and video to share more of this story.

Have fun reaching your goals!

SparkCheers!

Chris (SparkGuy)
