Hello - Thank you for this site. I was a member years ago, but life and computer crashes got in the way. Then I just "gave up", and you know what? Giving up didn't help me lose weight. I now am approximately the weight was when I started, but I've added to the list of comorbidities. I now have diabetes 2, hypertension and high cholesterol. My insurance company has recently set me up with a "care coach" who has been a great advocate and set me up with a team of nurses, doctors, physical therapists at a pool. This has given me the excitement to come back here and track myself. They are putting me on the dash diet, but there is no place better than here to track food input. Anyway, thank you for giving me another piece of the puzzle. I have referred my care coach here so that she can see how great it is. Again, thank you for your input. Kathryn

Thanks Chris. I decided to try this after a friend of mine has lost 60 pounds doing your program. I've been on a low carb diet for 3 months and down 10 but i really believe that going back to counting calories is the way to go. Thanks again!!

Thank you for creating this program. I look forward to losing weight,
I'm just starting on my Sparkpeople journey. But thank you for such a wonderful supportive site that is free. Financially challenged people can't afford personal trainers, diets and exercise programs but you site gives us choices. Something we can't buy. Thank you
I'm sure HUNDREDS of people have said "Thank you Chris!" - so I'm not saying anything original or witty. But THANK YOU CHRIS! You really are changing people's lives! No matter how much I "get off track" with any of my health-building habits, I keep coming back to SparkPeople because it's a wonderful resource to help me get back on a healthier path!

Dear Mr. "Spark People" Downie,
So far, I'm not finding a donation button for this site. I would urge you to develop an optional donation link button. This site is awe inspiring and I would very much enjoy giving back to you. I wonder. . . if you had your investment monies returned, what could you do next?
Thank you Chris Your idea was BRILLIANT. God bless you. I am 65 and I am looking forward to finally lose weight and feel energetic. Very inspirational video

Thank you Chris for making this site free. I am starting again,today. I am also using Body4Believers meal guide. I have seen spakpeople attached to that site too.(I believe I am correct in this). I am also looking for vegetarian meals. Thank you for helping me.
