  • I found SP mid-DEC 2016,AND IT HAS CHANGED MY LIFE. The trackers has made it easier to focus on my health, and I'm grateful. Thanks a lot! shafferchet - 1/30/2017 6:41:17 PM
  • Chris I want to thank you for setting up such a great site. It's got a wonderful support system and a great menu of areas to choose from. my only struggle is when i log food in, it takes a really long time to boot up, so sometimes I'll just use my fitness pal bc it's quick, but I really enjoy the articles and support! I got inspired to start a spark team but maybe I need to put on hold till I get more friends LOL - 7/21/2016 11:27:17 AM
  • Chris, you are as inspiring as the whole site is. Thank you for providing this for free so that people who are struggling with finances can still make a positive change in their lives.
    I know that the only way I can keep on track is to keep recording, reading inspirational stories and sharing successes/failures/fears and hopes. I love the point system, it encourages me when things are hard and gives me a boost when I am low. The various trackers remind me of what I am supposed to do. Knowing I have to track gets me out of my chair when I want to be lazy and stops me putting things in my mouth I shouldn't. - 1/24/2016 7:32:02 PM
  • Hi, Christ Can't I still stay a member of Sparkpeople even if I don't have a personal coach? - 1/7/2016 7:37:59 PM

  • Chris you've made a difference in my life as well. I'm down 50 lbs since the second week of January this year. I have about 30 more to go but I'm confident I will lose the rest because of your site. I've gleaned so much good advice and information from this site. I tell anyone that asks about my weight loss about using SPARKPEOPLE. It's made a huge difference in how I think about life, let alone weight loss. Thanks for making this site and making a difference. I'm extremely grateful! - 11/14/2014 2:26:17 PM
  • Dear Sparkguy:

    While I *do* block ads on websites as a matter of course in my browser (Chrome via AdBlock), partly to make my sometimes slow internet connection and time online more efficient, I REALLY appreciate the sparkpeople site, and the fact that it is FREE!! :D I would welcome opportunities to click on partner ads, *at my time of choosing, on one page, all put together* especially if there were sparkpoints associated with clicking daily.

    Just a suggestion :)
    THANKS! - 9/21/2014 2:59:51 PM
  • Thank you Chris! SparkPeople has helped me greatly, and I have had many of my patients (I am a healtcare provider) receive help in achieving healthy goals by using your site. You have whatever support I can give you! - 8/3/2014 6:17:41 PM
  • Chris, thank you for this address. It is informative for those who have not read either "Spark" or "The Spark Solution" that I have both enjoyed. I found SP quite by accident in a magazine in the doctor's office. I joined SP in October, 2013, having lost 140 pounds on Jenny and on my own, beginning at 535 pounds. I have lost another 47 on SP. I am 67, went from a wheel chair to a walker, and now a cane. I have made much progress in all areas of my life, and am just starting with a personal trainer. I have a long term goal for another 100 pounds. My family says, "Mom, if you lose 287, you should go for 300!" I just might.
    Thank you for your commitment to the world, and this wonderful place to learn and grow.

    I'm upset because Sparkpeople made me start over because I was forced to change my email address. I've lost all my Sparkpeople history. - 1/23/2014 4:20:05 PM

    I was reading reviews of Weight Watchers, trying with NO enthusiasm to get myself to try it one more time, when I saw a comment about SP. What drew me here was not so much *that* it was free as *why* it was free: that you wanted to genuinely help people rather than scam them out of their money. Every day I thank you and the woman who posted that comment! For the first time I feel like I may actually keep off the weight I lose. Losing the weight: $1000's. Keeping it off: priceless! - 5/4/2013 8:44:54 AM
  • Chris, thank you so much for turning your vision into a reality. This is the most wonderful company and resource. My husband and I started following the program on March 25 and it is changing our lives in profound ways. We are so grateful for the tools on the website, and every day we learn something new about how to achieve optimal health through nutritious foods and a commitment to exercise. THANK YOU! - 5/2/2013 8:53:15 AM
