On CBC radio this AM, the announcer was talking about weight loss---
-also overweight people--
Instantly my mind tuned in--"I wonder if he will mention SparkPeople.?"
He spoke more of people who had had surgery to help them with the weight loss, and how the surgery had changed their lives--- added 8 yrs onto their lives--diabetes had gone in a lot of cases---
I was thinking of how a thinner body is so important-----no mention of Spark----but, it dd come up, yesterday, when I was mailing a parcel at our post office-
I was telling their supervisor that oranges would be coming to our house and could she allow me to pick them up--not send them to another postal place-
This very overweight woman said, " You are leanjean aren't you?'
Instantly I looked at her. How did this woman know my Spark name?
She then told me that years ago, she had been a member of Spark---and--had lost over 20 pounds--got to her goal--THEN QUIT----
"Oh no!" I said-----
She told me that she would be returning in the New Year --- this Lady--in our small town---
Lord love a Duck eh?---Even up north-near the North Pole--- Spark is spreading---
And now , for sure, Santa Claus , who lives justa "hop, skip, and a jump" from us--well, I'm sure that he will become a member---
It's an Uber day--I must get outta here- I must be ever mindful also of what goes in the mouth!
