Im getting my dad Sparked!

Saturday, February 20, 2010

Well he hasnt joined yet, and probably wont do it online, but I have him interested in getting the 25 lbs he has gained off. We have buddied up in the past and do an excel spreadsheet together and share our weekly weigh ins. Tonight I noticed he passed on the mashed potatoes and didnt eat both biscuits. He sees my enthusiasm for my weight loss and loves having me as a buddy! We get to cheer each other on! It's great to have my dad want to lose the weight with me. So have you asked a family member to do a buddy sytem with you? Why not ask them? It shows that you love them enough to have them healthy too. I want my dad to be around for a long time, healthy and fit just like me! Together we will get there...

    That's great that you got your dad wanting to make some healthy changes. I too have tried a lot of my family to start sparkin or even just to lose weight. I've tried my mom, brother & wife, and even my husband. I have even helped them start their profiles up. It has been over a year, and I try to keep on them to do it, but no one has really been too motivated. I don't think any of them have been on since they started. emoticon

    But that's okay. I hope that by the time I get to my goal weight they will be motivated and want to make some positive changes. I just don't think I can push someone to do something unless they are ready. SO, hopefully it will be soon. emoticon
