Joining SparkPeople was the Best Thing Iíve Done for Myself

When I think of all the things SparkPeople has given me, I get overwhelmed with gratitude! Joining SparkPeople was the single best thing I have ever done for myself.

- I have FREE access to all this fantastic motivational, nutritional and exercise material!
- I have made some of the best SparkFriends and joined some great teams
- I have discovered that a healthy lifestyle doesn't include the word D-I-E-T!
- I have rediscovered my love of walking
- I have learned how to read nutrition labels
- I have come to love water
- I have been able to help my depression by blogging
- I have been able to give up one of my medications
- I have become more aware of how my body works and what my body needs to function
- I have been sleeping like a baby
- I have started to change the shape of my body
- I have become a better person; yes, I think that is fair to say

So, here is another one of my zany ideas! When you are struggling to find the perfect gift this year or want something extra to tuck into a Christmas card, why not mention SparkPeople and how much SparkPeople has improved YOUR life. Talk about the perfect gift - one size fits all, as I'm sure you would be hard pressed to find somebody in your life that couldn't do with a little Spark!

A few family members have noticed that I have been "changing" and they can't seem to quite put their finger on it so I am going to tell them my "secret". If each of us recommends SparkPeople to just two people and one of those joins, just look at the impact WE can have on those around us.

Give the gift of SparkPeople this Christmas season and you will have given the perfect gift!
