I read this today and it is so encouraging, I asked to share it and she said yes, if it would help to inspire others.

I got on the scale today and found that I've now lost 25 lbs! Amazing! I know that I owe my success to the help that SP provides so I was inspired to write a poem. Here it is:
25 pounds and going down,
the fat no longer hangs around.
Years of neglect and you can bet,
I thought my way was firmly set.
Then one day I found the Spark People way,
and to my surprise did not have to pay.
Signup is free? You're kidding me!
Yes, it's true there is no fee.
Track your nutrition and exercise,
and prepare for your nasty fat's demise.
It will never work you say,
I've tried every fad that's come my way.
You want proof of Spark People's worth?
View pages of members who've lost their girth.
25, 50, 100 pounds, their numbers just keep going down.
All due to the tools that on SP abound.
What helps their members come what may?
The sparkling friends met along the way.
SP provides the education and tools,
and the staff and experts are no fools.
Want to gain your health back too?
SP can show you what to do.
Keep striving toward your goals and then,
your BMI will not offend.
If I can do it anyone can,
Just log in and follow the plan.
and before long you'll be a fan,
then on the beach more tone and tan.
Spread the spark you SP clan
Show the world, Yes, you can!
Share the news, there is a way.
Don't let your weight hold life at bay.
Let nothing stop you, don't delay.
Come join SP right now, today.
A new you is just round the bend.
But now my poem is at it's end.
Thanks to all of you for your support, ecouragement and inspiration. Keep sparkling toward your goals.

Water is very important for us. We may, and I do, require more than the 8 glasses a day. The link goes to a water calculator I use to see what I need for my current weight. Mt requirement has dropped 9 ounces due to weight loss. Yipee! fitnessgear101.com/fitness-calculato
