A Sneak Peek of Saturday's Fun, Plus SparkPeople in the News

By , SparkPeople Blogger
It has been an extra busy and exciting week so far at SparkPeople. We're all hard at work preparing for this Saturday's Spark Your Life Convention here in Cincinnati and brainstorming with co-workers who are in town for the event. (Are you coming? It's not too late to register!)

Then this morning, SparkPeople was featured on the local Fox affiliate's morning show! One of our successful local members and Jenny, who heads up our city teams, spoke about the Convention. They'll both be attending on Saturday!

Are you excited for Saturday's convention? I sure am. I didn't get to go to the San Diego Spark Your Life convention, so this will be my first chance to meet some of you in person. I can't wait!

If you're still considering attending the convention, it's not too late. Sign up here!

Laura that was fantastic. I am so excited about this Sat. Can't wait to meet everyone that for the last 2yrs I have been only seeing on the internet. I live right out of Detriot and my sister lives in Cinn. what a good way to link everyone together. My husband is also coming he hears me talking all the time about SP Report
Great interview. Sorry Can't attend this one. Would love one in the Carolinas. Report
Great job with the interview! I won't be able to attend this convention, but wish you all the best. Report
Laura, you gave an awesome interview and touched on all the key points!

Congratulations on your success! Thank you for the motivation!

I won't be at this upcoming convention, but I would love to attend one in the future.

Keep sparking, SparkFriends! Report
I sure hope you will have one in the Northwest so we can all meet you.
I know I am going to be so itchy on Saturday because I want to be there so bad! Unfortunately, the haul from South Texas is a little bit far and too expensive.

Have any SparkPeople staffers thought about putting together a survey that lets Sparkers interested in attending a convention vote as to where they'd like it to be held? I would really love to see one down South - a lot of expanding waistlines down here, so we could use the motivation! :) Report
Very nice interview. I'm really looking forward to meeting everyone Saturday. Report
I can't attend the Cincy conference, but I had a great time in San Diego!

That being said, I REALLY hope the Sparkpeople organizing team (Jenny, Beth, etc) put a little bit of the budget into lighting the stage for the conference. Last time, it was REALLY difficult to see the speakers, and therefore focus on the content at times. It doesn't take much, but needs a little bit of a boost =)
(If that has not been done yet, sparkmail me, and I can recommend two companies that I used to work for in the area who can provide lighting for the event at a low cost!)
I would love to go, but I can't afford it. Have a spectacular time this weekend! Report
Sounds like a lot of fun. Just to bad I live clear in Oregon, no way I could attend. Have a lot of fun everybody. Report
Can't wait til Saturday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Report
WAY TO GO LAURA ! ! ! (did you see the arms on that girl?...very impressive)

Can't wait to meet everyone in Cincy Report
Congrats to Laura, what and inspiring story and such good publicity for Spark People. Laura is right, the community support here is unreal, so many kind, understanding and compassionate people here. Report
I definitely look forward to meeting more members and doing the morning and afternoon walks with you all! Report
How I wish I could afford to come to Cincinnati for the second convention! I attended the first one and loved it! I was happy to be able to drive to the one in Southern California, I still use the tools and inspiration I learned that day to help me be strong! I had found SP just 6 weeks before, so I was really new and vulnerable to the success stories and tips I was exposed to by the chosen speakers and guests. I am waiting for the Spark book to be released, I try to spread the spark every where I go and maybe by the next convention I will be in a better place financially to make the trip (Who knew I wouldn't have a job 6 months later?!)

I pray that many SP members will be able to attend Cincinnati. I hope they go with their eyes, minds and hearts wide open, because to miss even a moment would be sad!

Again, Thank you SP for saving my life! Report
That is awesome and I look forward to meeting and hearing from Laura herself Saturday learning more about her Spark journey! See everyone there!!! Report
Laura did a great job in her interview!! :D I wish I could see you guys all AGAIN, but I won't be able to attend this convention. Have lots of fun!!

I am sooo excited for Saturday's convention. The member panel is definitely the highlight of the whole day, in my opinion. Laura (from the video) did a great job on the news and I can't wait to hear more about her story and meet her in person. Woo hoo! Report
