  As someone who did the challenge, although I didn't get those prizes, I consider myself a winner! I won because I actually did the challenge and the optional challenge everyday...and because it has inspired me to keep moving - not just the 10 mins of each of the daily challenges, but because I'm walking lots...and hitting the gym! The real prize for me is to learn that I CAN exercise and I CAN move - Thanks, Coach Nicole, for the great job you did in leading me a little further down my journey!

Over 70 New Exercise Demos, including Gym Machines!

Friday, May 30, 2008


Hi everyone! In response to requests from our members, I'm happy to announce that we've added over 40 Gym Machine exercise demos to the site! Now you can add the strength training exercises that you do at the gym to your Fitness Tracker and get precise instructions on how to do these exercises correctly.

You can find all the new gym demos in the same places you find our other "at-home" ones (Fitness Resource Center, Strength Training Fitness Tracker, featured Exercise of the Day, etc). You can use the links below to see the new demos yourself!

Core Gym Exercises (5 new exercises)
Upper Body Gym Exercises (21 new exercises)
Lower Body Gym Exercises (16 new exercises)

And last but not least, we've added 32 new Stretching Demos, and a handful of new resistance band exercises, too.

We hope that you enjoy using these new demos to work out safely and effectively and track your progress!

    I would never work out in an motel or apt or anywhere that had exercise machines because I was so afraid of doing the machines the wrong way and messing up or injuring my body in some way.

Thanks so much for the videos. These are sure to help a large number of people like me who want to work out and just don't know how to do it properly.

I love SP. Great going coach.

    I'm so glad to know about the new demos, especially the stretches. I know I have to get my stretching in, but it's been a week spot unless I'm doing a video that includes stretching. I would love it if, like the strength training and cardio exercises, we could select a stretch and be able to check it off. That would really keep me accountable for it instead of that tiny box that says stretch before and after. Thanks!

SparkStreaks and Good Morning America Comments

Friday, May 23, 2008


Hello Everyone - hope you are all doing well!

I'm writing to talk about how excited I am about the new SparkStreaks feature!

A streak is one of the reasons that I ended up starting SparkPeople. Many years ago, I started a streak of working out at least 10 minutes every day. I ended up doing this 700 days in a row and it changed my life (the local newspaper even did a small story on this at the time, that was fun). This was both because of the improved fitness AND the confidence I gained from this adventure.

Along the way, a co-worker started something similar. She lost 50 pounds and told me I changed her life. She then went on to start a walking group where people said, "if you can do it, we can do it!" That's when I realized that "Your daily actions and words impact more people than you'll ever realize!"

One of the most important parts about a streak is to only use it as a positive motivator. You aren't allowed to get too upset if you miss a day. That's why we built in the consistency percentage.

I want everyone on the site to know that I am right in here with you working hard to reach goals. So, I'm making a commitment to keep my SparkPoints login streak as close to 100% as I possibly can and making that public - and I'll have one for 10 minutes of fitness as well. Everyone can hold me publicly accountable for this. Maybe we'll have to come up with a fun contest :).

I'll write more about this in an upcoming State of the Spark. I wanted to make a post now because I'm so excited about this new feature.

Also - I wanted to do a quick update on Good Morning America. We talked to Nichole and she told us that they were supposed to ask her a first question that let her talk about SparkPeople, but they had to cut that out because of time concerns. She was bummed about this, but was able to mention SP on the Good Morning America radio program and on Extra. We've learned that you can never tell what will happen on these media appearances - that's show biz :).

But, I do want everyone to know that we're working very hard to get to the point that these types of major TV shows do big stories just on SparkPeople. We have some interesting things in the works just for this.

Our mission remains to SPARK millions of PEOPLE to reach their goals. Nothing will stop us from working hard to reach this goal. We're so thankful to Nichole and every other member working to reach their own goals and then spreading the spark both on the site and around the world.

The bottom line is that there will be frustrations like this along the way, but we're getting closer and closer to a major breakthrough if we all keep working at this.

Thanks again for your support!

SparkCheers!

Chris/SparkGuy

It is very inspirational and supportive to all and for free...I am glad I finally found you even without the media. You never know who you influence and how it affects your life. I lost 80lbs and changed my lifestyle and changed my whole career by taking a huge leap of faith...Faith is what we must all have in each other to help us through. Faith is not seen but shared....thanks again for sharing. Connie Allen, CNC

  Today, is the first day to the Best of my life.
I have just returned from my 40th wedding anniversary.
I am about 65 pounds more than that wonderful day, 40 years ago.
But I am going to make you all proud of me and Start to be Smart about being apart of SparkPeople.

I'm Apoundaday, although I am not trying to do a pound of physical weight but definitely all that other weight will continue to come off too when there is a Better Person coming from the old one.

Watch me sweat, breath and enjoy my coming down, One Pound at a Time.

Although it might be 40 years, I don't have to look like I'm waiting for a rocking chair.

    I like the sparkstreak too. It's fun to see how many days in a row that you can keep those good habits up.
As for the impact that your words and actions can have it's so true. I joined my local gym on May 1st and was so excited when I told everyone that my mom now walks everyday, my sister is going to her fitness center and my RLF started going back to the gym after a year hiatus. (and I made it to the gym almost every day this month woo hoo a streak!)

    I just wanted you to know that although I had already lost the weight I needed to be 'healthy'. That I am anything but that. Despite my continued efforts to be that way. Chronic Health issues prevent me from ever using that term regarding myself. My Page gives all the Gory Details. *LoL*

I did find your site through a Spot on my Local TV news. At that time I had gained about 7 lbs. of my goal weight back. I checked out your site & have come to value a great Team & Support that must have been sent to me for a reason.

I recently found out that my 'usual abnormal' Mammograms have 'changed'. I face a great amount of challenges & decisions in the coming days. My Teams & this Site have given me knowledge & support that I would have had to 'go searching' for. Everyone here, the Health Links & Articles that have been made available to me- are invaluable!

The Good Lord must have known that I would need you guys & set mine & your paths to meet.

    Chris/SparkGuy,

I just want to add, like many others before me, how wonderful your site is, and how terrific I think you are for getting this started, and how generous you are for offering it at no charge.

Your SparkStreaks, as well as many other options on your site, have gotten me thinking thoughts in a very positive direction. Thank you, thank you, thank you. And I have started taking action! Your Spark Points are brilliant as a motivator.

I do hope that the advertising on the site does pick up the expense for it, or at least help to a large degree, and even make a profit for you. You deserve at least that much.

You are making such a difference in the lives So Many people and bringing so much hope, happiness and good health and fun to so many individuals and families. I certainly do hope that this comes back to you in a wonderful way. You must be so proud of yourself, and all of the people who have followed your lead by making such positive changes in their lives and health.

I have reduced my medications for diabetes by 50% in the last month, after taking it for over 15 years, and set a goal to lose over 100 pounds, and start moving again. And even have some fun instead of just getting along.

I have told anyone who will listen, including my husband, friends and doctors who are wondering how I am doing so well. I have just gotten started with SparkPeople in the last week, but your site has so much more to offer than those other ones, one of which is WorldWide (WW-LOL) and I will be dropping very soon!

There is so much to learn from your site offerings, that it is very exciting. And I don't usually impress that easily. I have a degree from UCLA with a Masters Degree in Psychotherapy.

You have a heart of gold, and I do hope that all of this gives you great happiness and satisfaction. I also hope that the words that are offered to you in sincere thanks add to your joy.

Also, I was wondering if there is any part of your organization that is non-profit, that your members can contribute to and help out? If you want to respond privately to that question, that would be fine, also.

Again, Thank You So Very Much from the Bottom of My Heart, which will probably keep me going many more years, thanks to what you have started and support in such a generous way!

I am hoping that these offerings will be made available for many years to come, to continue to help improve the lives of many more people as they learn to live fuller, healthier lives and share this with so many others!

Most Sincerely,

Jan

    SparkStreaks sounds like a great motivator that I am looking forward to trying out. Also, thank you for the update for "Good Morning America". Not mentioning Spark seems to defeat the purpose of asking Nichole how she lost the weight.

  Chris, thanks so much for your vision and you generosity in starting SparkPeople. I love the idea of SparkStreaks!

I actually emailed GMA and told them I was very disappointed that they didn't highlight Nichole & SparkPeople - and they were doing a disservice to their audience...and I live Ravon's suggestion and will do likewise in writing to Oprah!

Now, fyi, I cannot believe that I actually am cleaning my closet this weekend because clothes are too big...and I can't believe I'm at my lowest weight in 9 years...yup...still have long way to go to goal, but lowest in 9 years...can't believe I started a walking group at work...and look for more opportunities to walk places...and actually adjust food for the day if I know I'm going out...The old me would have just said, "ah, it's only one day." So as I get healthier...and my bp drops...and my cholesterol drops, I can truly say, "Thank you, Chris, Nicole, and the rest of the SP staff...and my 50+ with 50-99 lbs to lose...because you have SAVED MY LIFE!"

    I was a little upset that she didn't mention SparkPeople when she was on GMA, but I figured they cut it out. I wrote an email to Oprah's website and told her how well I was doing on Sparks and how you have this free site with cool things. They haven't gotten back to me yet. I let them know that lots of the shows that Sparks has been on, I had never seen, but lots of people watch Oprah. I let you know if she gets back to me. Thanks so much for this site.

Two Members in National Magazines on Newsstands Now

Friday, May 23, 2008


On newsstands this week, you'll find the success stories of SparkPeople members in both People and Good Housekeeping magazines!

After dropping ten sizes and 50 pounds, Diana Bales (DI136229), was selected by the editors of Good Housekeeping to represent SparkPeople in their annual "Walk Off Pounds!" cover story. Reflecting on her experience Diana said, "When I joined SparkPeople last year I just wanted to lose my Christmas weight. But I ended up reaching a goal weight I NEVER thought I could." She also completed her first 5K race and her first triathlon, but more importantly, she learned to never say, "I can't." See the newly transformed Diana in the current issue of Good Housekeeping, on newsstands now!

Nichole Jones (NICHJONES) was selected by the editors of People magazine for their cover feature "100 Pounds Lost, and Swimsuit Ready" that hit newsstands on May 23, 2008. As part of the photo shoot, Nichole was flown to Miami Beach and last Wednesday, to New York City to promote the magazine story on "Good Morning America," "Inside Edition" and "Extra!" Nichole, a SparkPeople member for over 2 years, lost 105 pounds and recently started participating in fitness and figure competitions. You can see her bikini-ready body in the current issue of People magazine, on newsstands this week!

These women aren't celebrities with personal chefs and trainers. They're regular people just like you who spent years working hard for what they wanted. Because of their determination, they were rewarded with an experience they'll never forget—an all expenses paid trip to Miami Beach, a glamorous photo shoot, and the opportunity to Spread the Spark to millions of people. It doesn't get much better than that. Like Diana and Nichols, you just might be the next SparkPeople Success Story!

Show your support by picking up copies of both People and Good Housekeeping soon, as they won't be on newsstands much longer!

    HI Sparkguy, I just joined in a couple of weeks ago. I am getting used to your site. It is not too hard to find your way around it and lots of useful and helpful information. I have to say I love Sparkpeople.com. So far I haven't lost any weight, but should be soon as I am getting more active and working on my eating habits. Started out just cutting back on how much I eat. And now cutting out junk and adding more healthy stuff. I even cleaned out my pantry yesterday.
I would love to read these articles on Diana and Nicole. Is there any way we can get copies on the issues or articles themselves? Thanks for a wonderful and easy site.

    It is wonderful that Spark People is being recognized and commented upon. I too found out about Spark People through a magazine. In Dec. '08, People magazine had done an article on people who had lost half their weight. I was reading the different ways they had done it. One young lady who had lost over 100lbs. cited Spark People.com. I found your site and I have been hooked ever since. emoticon

SparkPeople is Happy to Introduce SparkStreaks!

Thursday, May 22, 2008


We launched a new feature today called SparkStreaks, where you can challenge yourself to reach certain goals every day (or week or month if you'd like). We know that members track streaks on their own, so we wanted to create this feature to make it easier to track. Streaks are a great way to give you extra motivation to reach your goals.

You can view and manage your SparkStreaks by clicking on My Home/Start, then finding a link to SparkStreaks in the "myTools" section on the left of the page. When you click to your Streaks page, you'll see all the Streaks you are tracking. We made it so everyone has a Streak for logging in to the site and spinning the SparkPoints wheel and for drinking 8 cups of water a day. You can click the "Start/Manage Streaks" button to decide what goals you want to track a Streak, and to choose if you want to share your Streaks publicly. You can share Streaks on your SparkPage, and for SparkTeam goals you can share your Streak on your SparkTeam goal page. When you share on your SparkPage, your Streaks will appear on left side of your SparkPage under your main pictures.

To track your Streak you simply track your goals as your normally would. You can click the "See More SparkStreaks" link on your Start page to see details of your streaks, including:
- Your current streak length for the goal.
- The longest streak you ever had for the goal.
- A consistency percentage for the goal. Even if you drop off a streak, you can still see how often you did the goal. So, if you did the goal 9 of 10 days, you'd have a 90% consistency rate. If you want to re-start this counting to today, just click the "reset" link in the Consistency section.

We hope you like this feature and that it can help keep you motivated to reach some amazing goals. If you have any questions or comments, please click here to post in our Technical Support Message Boards.

I find that a lot of the navigating through your site VERY frustrating, sometimes having to repeat the same request 3 and 5 times, that is if I get it to work at all. Maybe THIS is how you want us to lose weight, because you get so frustrated, you lose your appetite. I don't know, maybe with some they just get discouraged and just QUIT!
