It is more of a motivational book than a diet book. I was glad of that too. Sparkguy tells us all about his growing up and struggles and how he came up with the idea of Sparkpeople. If he wrote this book himself, meaning without help...then he is an awesome writer. I love the descriptions and examples that he uses. A lot of thought went into this book. I am reading it slowly and letting it sink in. I am writing notes in the margins and even wrote my long-term and short term goals in the book! emoticon

The proof will be in the pudding or lack of it with me soon! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Christie

I can do this. I will do this. Becoming the Christie I want to be.

I ordered it...& will not hesitate to give an honest review if I feel it is bunk either, LOL!

It's not here yet though emoticon

Glad to hear you're enjoying it Christie. It gives me some hope that I wasn't just buying into all the hype here (I mean on SP...not this board). emoticon

It is really good. I am only in the beginning of chapter one, but it is motivating! I am highlighting sections and re-reading them too! emoticon

I got mine in the mail today from amazon. Haven't had a chance to look at it yet. Just in time for some New Year motivation and who doesn't need that.

I ordered it... had some amazon cash on hand... am ambivilant now... think any book that sells so much before coming out (Harry Potter excepted that had a track record) is over hyped. But, they had good offers and I am always looking for new motivation in a new year. ... and I can do anything for 28 (I think it is) days.

I will not hesisitate to send off a nasty gram to some spark honcho if it is all junk...

interested to see...

I ordered it, partially to take advantage of the offers that came with it. I'm really looking forward to it helping me re-find my motivation in a number of areas.

I don't think I will order, although, I am sure it will still be there later if I change my mind.

No, I haven't ordered it, yet anyway. I have a feeling that I will sooner or later though.

Did you or did you not order the new book and why!

Here is the link if you want to order it!

Since I finally feel committed to getting healthy and love this website, it was natural for me to purchase the book. I did think about it a bit as finances are a bit tight, but the promotions just looked so good!
