One of my teams had a challenge to put $1 in a jar each day you logged on Spark. I have put the money in every day since I joined on 11/9/09. I plan to continue doing so until my 1 year anniversary on Spark and then add $1 for each pound lost!

I just went the Spark Money thing...put in my budget, savings, debt, retirement, etc....it is scary. I am a saver, not really a spender. I have excellent credit...and it says that I will not have money after age 64...scary.
Being recently retired, I have come to the conclusion that one of the best retirement gifts you can give yourself is the gift of your own good health. Take care of yourself before you retire so you can enjoy many years of healthy retirement.
Take your spark efforts seriously now and spend less money on taking care of chronic disease later! :)
I try coming up with "Spark" words to keep me constantly reminded about "the Spark" concept, and it helps me remember my health goals! Spark-walk, Spark-wich, Spark-run, Spark-fast, Spark-uum, Spark-break, Spark-ster, Spark-ler, Spark-fest, etc. SPARK-Everything!!!!
