Passing It On

Monday, February 15, 2010

I went to Golds gym today and did my 100 laps and exercises, I had a great time in the steam room. I got talking to a young lady who complained of gaining weight. I told her about my losing 55 pounds and that a site called SParkpeople helped me to do it. I gave her the rundown on what it had. She shared she had cancer, had chemo and was having her last dose of radiation. I told her she can get tomns of support on the page. Then 5 men walked in and we didn;t talk again. I hope she tries to log on. I am so proud of this site I wonder if I am too pushy. People can get turned off so quickly. I did also share it was free, and I told her about Chris's book on the best seller list. Hope she gets the urge to just check it out.

I am so happy with this site and the people I met here I want to share it with everyone who could use it.

My spirits are better today I think it was because I was able to take care of me today. Hope everyone is safe after last week . Do you know for the first time there was snow in 49 states only Hawaii had none that is pretty cool. Night all till tomorrow. emoticon emoticon

    You gave that woman a gift! Even if she doesn't immediately log on, at least now she's heard it and maybe that Spark of interest will catch fire! Good job!

    I am glad you are feeling better today...I do not want for you to be sad.
    Congratulations on being able to get out today and swim and all. What a powerhouse you are. You did the right thing telling that young lady about Sparkpeople. I tell people all the time...they say it sounds interesting, but I don't know if they check it out or not. It's a lot like witnessing about God...we can tell people and we can plant the seed, then it is up to them.

    Have a great evening!

    emoticon , It was a good thing you did for her and for yourself. It didn't sound pushy to me at all, just informative. Congrats on your weightloss and much success in the future.
