Convention was the best....

Sunday, May 03, 2009

Arrived at 7am for the morning walk.

Spun the Spark Wheel and got 75 points.

Met a lot of nice sparkers.

Signed the big Huddle Banner.

Gave out ALL my spark cards and got a bunch in return.

Brought my lunch, ate healthy, don’t want to mess up now that’s for sure. Was .4 past my goal day of Convention.

Met Wolfkitty, Jocelyn leader from my team “Done being the fat girl” She was also one of the speakers and every bit as fun and vivacious as I expected.

Spent most of my day with toferking - Christine from Colorado. She was so nice! But everyone I met was and their stories were inspiring/

Chris (Spark Guy) told how he got started and progressed to where Spark People is today.

We did group WooHoo’s throughout the day!

Met Coach Nicole and did lunch workout and midday stretches with her.

Becky the nutritionist was very helpful and funny. Learned a lot from her.

Life coach Cheryl Richardson choose some sparkers from the audience and scenarios and coached them. It was quite interesting and very helpful as well.

The highlight for me was the panel of awe inspiring stories from Sparkers who have lost so much weight and are still losing or maintaining. Each story you could relate to and I cried several time because I knew exactly what they were talking about.

It was nice meeting all of the spark staff especially Beth & Jenn who helped me in making my arrangements

But most of all a very special thanks to Marci who gave me her ticket because she was unable to attend. I hope to meet you one day and thank you in person because you made this one of the best Birthday’s I have ever had!

    Thanks for sharing your experience at the Convention. I loved the pictures and I am so envious. I wanted to go but couldn't! I hope next time it will be in the Midwest or they decide to have Regional Conferences.

    I loved your blog and it was right in line with my experiences, too. I am still on a real "high" and words just escape me. Chris's whole talk about consistency and the "critical point" between diet & exercise that begins to show results....that motivated me more than anything. But the life stories of the panel made me believe my goals can come true! I so enjoyed meeting you. Here's to next year's convention!
