Congratulations to the winners. I didn't know about the contest; but I was 237 pounds and now I go to a nutritionist and she want me to gain weight, now. Congratulations again to each of you and to all and all the SPP people because each of you are winners because you are doing the best for each one of you. Keep doing a great job to make your life healthier.
It's great for the winners. I would wonder about a comment made in the article on the first place winners that they didn't use a "gimmick" like Atkins. I had Atkins recommended to me by two of my area's leading physicians. And it's working great. Studies show a low carbohydrate diet leads to more pounds lost than any other approach. Also, there are many Atkins sites on the Spark. So when you write that it's a gimmick, you are writing off a large portion of Spark users. Thanks, Glenn

Its definitely a motivating thing to see the success of others. There are so many wonderful stories of accomplishment on Spark People!
Kind of sad that Kitt52 wasn't chosen -- she has lost over 200 lbs thanks to Spark and the transformation is amazing. She is an inspiration to a lot of people and it would have been fitting to recognize her in this contest.
It's amazing how reading inspirational stories like these can affect you so positively! Thanks for sharing!!!

I love that Matt and Denise were in this article. Their six years of dedication and persistence are truly inspiring. Having started at over 150 pounds to lose, I'm going to be depending on SparkPeople for a long time. It's terrific to see how successful folks can be with the long-term support of the Spark community!
