Thursday, June 12, 2008

emoticonWe're thrilled to announce that SparkPeople.com members have collectively lost over 5 million pounds to date! Nope, you're not seeing things. That's 5,000,000—with 6 zeros.

You can check it out for yourself on our Activity Stats page, which also keeps running totals of calories burned, cups of water members have drunk, and more. These are real-time stats that update every time a member tracks these details on the site.

This is a huge accomplishment for every single person who has logged in, stuck with their program, and tracked their weight loss on the site, no matter how big or small. Congratulations to everyone who helped us reach this big milestone.

We hope this is just the beginning, too. Every day, members are losing weight and getting healthier, helping one another along the way, and Spreading the Spark so that more people can find out about the amazing resources, tools and supportive Community features that SparkPeople offers for free. Here's to your next big milestone!

    This was very helpful. I've lost 25 pounds since starting SparkPeople and coming off some of my meds, working with my family doctor and my 35 medical conditions since Jan 18, 2008. I've finally seen some real benefit. I just don't know how to add the I've Lost 25 Pounds thing to my tracker and to get the Picture that says I lost 25 pounds On SparkPeople. Thanks for the help Coaches and Jen for the post. emoticon emoticon

    I have lost 54 lbs so far!! WooHoo!!! I have enjoyed SparkPeople so much that I tell everyone about it. Anytime there is something said about weight loss I just have to tell them about SP. While I have lost 54 lbs, my husband just for tagging along has lost 35 lbs. Keep up the good work everyone!!!!

    Since starting this seriously on 4/3/2008, I have lost 15.25 pounds. I started this because I was gaining weight caused by the steroids I have to take for my chemo treatments and I needed to slow it down...the most I was hoping for was to stop gaining weight...if I stayed the same I was going to be happy. Boy, did I get a surprise...in the last 12 weeks I have only had 1 gain...that was my 2nd week and that was for a pound...the last 10 weeks have all been no gainers! I was really amazed when I started losing! I love this program and everyone here. They have all been very encouraging and helpful. I love everything about this site and as I dig and play with the various pages I go through I love it even more!
    This is a wonderful thing you did, Chris. (You also have a fantastic staff!) I really appreciate it a lot...the fact that is free is amazing but if I had to pay I wouldn't be able to achieve my goals and get healthy nearly as fast. You make the program so easy to do. I don't have to do any of the complicated "figuring out how much of what" I need to be able to control my intake. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! emoticon emoticon
    emoticon to all!

    Nicole...I really like your videos...you make it look so easy but what I like the most is that you explain it and show it so it is easy to follow...I have some videos that it goes by so quickly you can't figure out how it was done and it isn't explained very well either but your videos are really good...makes it a lot easier for me to follow...you are a good teacher! emoticon

    I've only lost 14 pounds since May 9th, but most of that was done without any exercise at all, so I'm not really bummed out. As a matter of fact, I'm pretty excited. Who knew that I'd ever have FUN dieting?!? Sparkpeople make dieting so much fun that I can hardly wait to log in or weigh myself!

    I have not lost as much as I would have liked to, but I know one thing that is for sure, I have not gained as much as I would have without Spark People. I love SP. emoticon

    I have lost 18 pounds since February. I've got about 5 more to go.

    I haven't been this thin or had this flat a belly since after my first child was born! (He's 26 now). I've got to buy clothes 2 sizes smaller!
    Thanks Spark People!

    Hi, I just wanted to "weigh-In" here and thank Spark People for what they are providing for all of us who have struggled/struggle to eat healthy and exercise and finally lose the weight we've carried around for so long! In a world that seems to only exploit the overweight, I am so grateful that SP is here as a real solution and it's FREE! What a blessing for us all! I've lost 143 pounds and have been on this journey for 2 and 1/2 years now. My life is changed in so many ways and I am eternally indebted to SP for the part they have played in my success!

    I will be ETERNALLY GRATEFUL to Chris for what he has provided here FREE to us!
    My life has changed so very much.
    I can't wait to see many more "first's" for me.
    I've met people here who are now as FAMILY.
    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.:-) emoticon emoticon emoticon Sherry

    I hired a personal trainer last September 2007 and have lost 44 lbs so far. emoticon I have another 15-20 to go. I feel great and owe a lot to my trainer for motivating me throughout this journey. I couldn't have done it without him. I'm also motivated by everyone at work stopping me to comment on how great I look and how did I do it. I'm addicted to working out now and am at the gym at least 5 days a week.

    I began my own weight loss program in February of 2008. Since starting that I have lost 40 pounds and have at least 40 more to go!!! Since joining spark people I have lost about 5 pounds but I am at the point where it is more difficult to come off and I am building muscle which I am told will have me maintain my weight for awhile and then I will begin to see it come off again! Either way I am so happy :-)
