I've never used online but this video is very encouraging. It gives a person some hope they can lose the weight. I am diabetic and it seems very hard to get the weight off. Here goes - going try this!

Thank you Chris for starting the website and funding so much of it! I have used this for about 2 years mostly for exercise tracking and for the short workout videos. I had no idea of the history until I just watched this video. I am even more impressed now!
I'm a returning member. I lost 40 lbs and reached my ideal weight a couple of years ago and it crept back up (6 lbs) over these last holidays. I am back in the program and on my way back to my ideal weight. The site has improved over the years and I like how they kept my account alive all the time I was gone so I could just jump back in. Even my favorite foods and recipes were still there. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

I love the fact that there is Sparkling People still out there who care so much for those who need just a little encouragement. Thanks Mr. Downie for caring and financially backing this
Chris--I am 288 lbs and I just cried after viewing your video about you on fox 17, telling you spent your hard earned money to help people like me. I had given up on me--but now, I have today started keeping track first day again---I was here at this site before--but gave up. I cannot go back now my class reunion is in June and I have to get at least have 25 lbs off--I want to get rid of my stomach. I am sure and confident I can find some support for this. Thank you so much for being so kind and thinking of others--a big hug to you

Thank you, Chris, for creating this website and keeping it free....wouldn't be able to do this if it weren't for your generosity in creating this wonderful community.

I totally love this site, thank you for making it free
Having just come back from my doctor and was feeling down. My blood pressure is high, I'm more than anxious about my weight, I'm not sleeping and have little interest in life. I MUST do something. I reached out to Sparks People. I have been an off/on member of Sparks people for quite a while, but have not put as much work into it. But I have just watched the Chicago Fox interview with Chris. I hang my head in shame and at the same time say a BIG, thank you Christ. I feel something I haven't felt in awhile, Hope!
I will no longer abuse you generosity, I will do what you set up Sparks people to do.. You have invested in me, now I must invest in myself. I will take my health seriously, open myself up to others (not easy for me) and cut the junk... I really do want to loose the weight...

SparkGuy - Thank you for doing this website. Watching this video and knowing you are doing something out of your own pocket to help so many of us brought tears to my eyes. Thank you.

Thank you Sparkpeople. I'm really excited to check this all out. I stumbled in to this site and it seems really cool. I can't explain what I feel exactly but "Thank you". The video was absolutely wonderful and super hopeful.

The first weight loss program that can and will address all aspects of total fitness.

It sounds encouraging! I have a fear of failing and my life is on the line this. I have extreme pain when I move and I can't seem to get motivated. I pray Spark will be the tool God uses to bring a miracle of health in my life.
