Gold-digger (noun): a person who mines and extracts gold. Sparkpeople.com has turned me a grandmother into a ‘gold-digger’. I am extracting everything I can get from Sparkpeople to my advantage to lose weight and to live a healthier lifestyle. There is the pre-planned menu’s that you can pay for if you get your own nutritionists. There are exercise videos, but of course if you choose you can buy your own or hiring your own personal fitness trainer and pay $$$$$ per session. You can go to a local meeting with others that are losing weight and pay $$$$$ or you can join a weight loss team and get support anytime day or night, not just when you go to a weekly meeting. There is tons of information on health issues that are there for us Gold-diggers like me. This is 2010 and it has finally dawned on me that I do have a gold-mine with Sparkpeople and I ain’t giving it up!!! In the words of Stacy Ann Ferguson……”I ve overcome fear. I’ve pushed through it. I dusted myself off and gave it another go.”
