Why SP is so awesome!

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

I opened up the yahoo homepage today and I see this:

It only lists a small handful, but out of the 5, Spark is the only one that is free! And we all know it's the best anyway!
Here's an exerpt:
SparkPeople (free). It's supported by ads that run the gamut from hotels to granola bars, but get-slim-quick gimmicks are blessedly absent. The focus is on meeting simple goals: eat less, exercise more. March advises her clients to take advantage of the site's nutritional planning tools. Users can create meal plans based on calories and dietary restrictions, plan meals up to a week in advance, and save favorite meals to a daily log. Members exchange advice through forums, blogs, and message boards. Bonus: The more time you spend on the site, the more SparkPoints you earn towards prizes like T-shirts, water bottles, and exercise DVDs.

Go check it out and see!!

    Yayayayyayayy! I saw this too and was super excited--it still REALLY surprises me that not very many people know about this site...I randomly stumbled onto it through a google search a month ago and I am SO glad I did!

    I agree with it all except.. we do not accumulate points to free stuff. That is misleading. However, you are right.. we all know why we love it so much!!

    I just joined SP today after reading that same article. I've tried other weight loss sites before with marginal success. But this is the first I've encountered that seems to promote an actual lifestyle change, and not just a diet. I'm impressed so far, and looking forward to seeing some results.

    They say the best things in life are free. SP is certainly one of them.
