@kaliswalker @Everyone For those of you who may not know, the 5% started because Lynn had a vision! She took someone else's mess and created the 5% as we know it today.

Please "sign" the card by commenting on how the 5% has helped you on your journey to health.

    @kaliswalker Dear Lynn, I can't imagine where I would be without sharing this journey with you! Who could have dreamed that your idea for something better would become what the 5% has grown up to be? Thank you for your time and dedication to take us on travels worldwide to places we never would have known about and helping us to learn healthy new habits.

    May we continue this journey together for many years to come!

    The 5% challenge is likely the only reason I am anywhere near goal!!! It is wonderful and I have met so many people at Spark and now here. Thank you for giving me a community and a team experience that makes it possible for me to keep working out. You have literally given me my health!

    Dear Lynn. You have created a gem of a challenge. What you have done is a tool to which so many of us come back to religiously on a daily basis. Personally, I do not know what I would have become without the 5% challenges as it has helped me stay accountable not only to myself but also to the teammates. Many thanks for everything. Lise

    Lynn @kaliswalker I too want to add my thanks for inspiring so many to continue on this journey for not only weight loss but also for a much healthier lifestyle. I think I can say most of us have never stuck around so long and continued this journey of Living The Good Life. Your hard work is appreciated more than you can imagine! THANK YOU!

    @kaliswalker Lynn, You are truly appreciated. You’ve taken us on so many virtual tours of the world, united us in SPARKS and ushered us into MFP. You’ve raised up a team of dedicated leaders and given us such fun ways to run the 5% race. I love how the challenges are broken up by season, for each season has it’s own challenge and rewards. Thank you for the education in health and fitness and Living the Good Life.

    You are truly inspirational. Keeping healthy and getting to my goal and maintaining is on my bucket list and you’ve provided the bucket 🪣 🤗

    Keep on with those SPARKs ⚡️

    And be blessed with many more Vacations 🛫 🚢 🏖️👍

    Lynn, Thank you for all your hard and dedicated work that's helped me be much healthier over the last 4.5 or so years. I'm sure I'd be following my life long pattern of not actually doing what I set out to do, if it were not for you and the countless dedicated people who help you to do it. (I do miss your blogs popping up though, reminding me that even our fearless leaders know the struggle, lol)

    Hello, Lynn! Thank you very much for all you do for so many. You are a blessing to each of us. I may not meet my best each day, but the 5% motivates me to try to do something. Because of your caring and dedication so many of us are better, even a wee bit, than we were. Thanks and Blessings to you, our friend!

    Thank you Lynn for this awesome community! It's wholesome and supportive and encouraging. So far I've lost 10% of my body weight with help from all these challenges. Thank for this great group.
