I also try to tell people about the Spark People.
I am on Face Book and that is my way of spreading the Spark.
My friends maybe sick of hearing about healthy but I share because
knowledge is power and Determination = Victory...

What a challenge! Carol I've wanted to tell strangers too. I'm especially concerned when I see people that are very wide around the middle. I have a friend that's on many dating websites and suffer from weight related health problems and though I've talked about spark she is not the least interested. I'm afraid her children will loose their mother. I decided to spread the spark whenever possible, if people catch it or not.

Carol, I have thought that same thing many times. I have randomly struck up a conversation with a few of them through the years, hoping that they would give me an opening to mention it. emoticon

How I wish I could recommend it to overweight strangers!!! The last two Sunday's in our church I have seen this grossly overweight girl with her less overweight husband and adorable little girl. I would like to tell her about the success of people on Sparks!

My doctor also was impressed and tells patients about Spark.
I also impressed a dietician for diabetes with this program and she planned to recommend it to her clients. She was so taken with the way we could track calories, sodium, potassium, etc.
But I have not been successful when trying to get others to participate when I recommend Spark. One friend who makes a lot of use of computer said she just couldn't be bothered with those daily emails, so she joined WW over a year ago, pays a hefty sum, and hasn't lost nearly as much as I did in one year with Spark People. And I learn something new every day!!! Well worth my time!!!

Also remember to tell your Doctor about SP. Mine has been mightily impressed at my success and has referred several patients of hers to the site. Whether or not they have joined is up for grabs but they have been given the tools. "It works if you work it and it won't if you don't!"

Attitude is everything, pick a good one!

"It works if you work it, and it won't if you don't."

ONCE YOU GET THERE....DON'T GET COCKY,
IT'S EASY TO FALL RIGHT BACK DOWN.

Certainly I have a 6-pack. You just can't see it through my soft sided cooler!

Lets get Raleigh healthy. I challenge all of us to tell three people, who don't know about spark people, about our Raleigh Spark Team. I am using the great "you've been sparked" marketing cards available to print. Tell doctors, friends, grocery store cashiers, coffee shop baristas and any one else you can think of.
