I'm often moved by comments from members about the many ways SparkPeople and our community are helping them - here's one from a couple of days ago:

I am a thirty one year old mom of a autistic 3 year old son. I have been trying to lose weight since I have had him. Because of all of the therapy he needs I had to quit working leaving us with no extra money for things like the gym. I want to thank you so much for this site I have lost 11 pounds so far and feel better than I have in a long time. Thank YOU!!

We're all making a big difference as a team!

    This site has done for me what countless other programs have not. I lost weight on Weight Watchers, but I was NEVER as motivated as I am now. The support is unreal and all of the articles and daily emails are so helpful. I can't believe it's all free! You have no idea what you've done for so many of us, thank you SO MUCH!

    This site has restored my faith in myself. I don't think I could have lost 17 healthy pounds in a matter of weeks. There's no gimmicks, no pills and no fee. That's such a beautiful thing!

    This site has touched the lives of so many people. It has offered them hope that they can succeed, belief that they are worth it, encouragement when they are tired of trying, and knowledge to help them achieve their goals.

    This site has reached so many people. People around us may not know of or we are hiding things.... but here we are pictures and friends. It is easy to open up. When we are feeling bad there are so many people to help. Thank for creating this site. 98 pounds to go and I am going to do it with my spark friends.... rephrase that spark family.

    wasn't going to blog until I weigh myself on 7/20/09, but I just have to say it. This is the most amazing program. The nutrition guide is so easy. I now buy my food to fit my numbers. I look at fat grams, calories and carbohydrates in the products I buy in relation to "my nutrition" numbers. The pie chart (I love the chart pie) is so clear and it stays in my head. Every time I fix a meal I am constantly keeping my numbers in mind and without even looking at "my nutrition" can tell how many calories or fat I can afford. I never saw such amazing and easy tools in any other program. SPARK PEOPLE PEOPLE DON'T LET ANYONE STEAL THEM!!! YOU ROCK! high five

    I copied this from one of my past blogs. I'm still amzed and trying to pinpoint the extra something this site has. I know one of the major elements is the support from real people, wonderful people, not paid advisors. But I know there's more. They pulled me in from the very first day. And so far, I'm improving everyday since.

    I read blogs of people. For me Spark as God, there so many vices of happiness and success, sadness and loss, doubt and satisfaction. There are trues and not trues, but it is OK. I am cheating of SP. I love to have Points, to buy goodies, to receive goodies. SO I try to get points as much as I can. But in the important things people are very care about I never lie. SO I can click if I did not read article, but I cannot put diet if I do not use it or exercise if I did no do it today. it is important.

    thanks SPARK

    That's what it's all about!!
    I love hearing about other people's jouneys. I'm so proud of these people who I've never met & the battles they are conquering.
    Y'all are changing people's lives here. Stop & ponder that for a moment.
