Secrets of Success

Give All Of Your Self To The Program



I struggled the first time I joined Spark. I didn't participate so I gave up quick. emoticon
The second time I opened up my profile page to the public. I joined some Spark teams. Got some emoticon
I also made my Nutrition and Fitness Trackers public. WHY? To keep me accountable. Give in completely. Don't join half way. Come join us all the way. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I have been on SP and did not use it the way in was intended to be used. I am a private person, too, and thought that no one would care what I was doing on SP. Second day on SP and thought I would open my self up and hopefully will discover that wanna be healthy person hiding inside of myself and afraid of failure.. - by 2012LKNGD
  • You are absolutely right. My weight loss attempts have always been highly private, and only once successful for reaching a healthy weight and keeping it off for any length of time. This time is DIFFERENT. After starting with a private page, I opened it up and did just what you've done--gotten connected with the community. What a difference it has made in keeping me going and convincing me that I really can do this. emoticon - by SABLENESS
  • I am so ashamed of my weight and so embarrassed by it that I initially decided not to post a photgraph of myself. But I have realised that although I have joined S.P. wholeheartedly in every other respect this was missing. So in 5 minutes I'm going to update my page with a picture ! I decided right from the outset to use S.P. properly and have followed methodically every stage and piece of advice , so new members : don't jump from one thing to another. Start at the beginning and work through it as guided. You won't be sorry! This is not a quick fix. It's for life ! - by SARAHCLARK5
  • I have made my profile private, but like you, would like to give this my all. Is there anyway I can change my profile to public (i've tried and failed) without rejoining? Give simple instructions, as my computer knowledge is limited, if you choose to reply,please. - by BEVA0307

  • I am normally a very shy person which comes from being made fun of and used as material for jokes. It's very hard for me to open up regarding any attempt to lose weight cause people usually laughed at me. Its nice to find a place where I can open up and not have that happen. In fact the opposite--encouraged to keep going!!!!!!!! - by TERIFROMNE
