First Year Anniversary Blog
Wednesday, February 22, 2012
As I embark on my 1st year anniversary of being a part of the SparkPeople community I really thought about what I would say on my one year anniversary blog. Like so many others, I decided to say what was on my heart.
It been one year since I decided to join the SparkPeople community and like so many others, I’ve had several times throughout the year were I ate whatever I wanted; going over the allotted calories for that day. I also had several days and one time a whole week were I just didn’t want to exercise and so I didn’t. Now I’m not suggesting that those was great choices to make, however, those was the struggles and lows that I’ve dealt with this past year.
I had long stretches of time were I was following the plan that was laid out for me and exercising more than I ever have in my LIFE and still I didn’t see the result that I wanted and I can’t sit here and tell you that I wasn’t disappointed because I was. I did not lose nearly as much weight as I had desired and I know that some of it was because of my doing, however, I purposed in my own heart not to lose focus.
I have learned so much in this past year and the key for me to be successful on this lifestyle journey is to never give up no matter how many times I stumble and fall. No matter what I face, I will continue on this journey long after I’ve gotten down to my GW because for me it’s a LIFESTYLE. The tips and advice that this website provide is just wonderful and the Spark buddies are simple the best.
I want to take time out to thank each and every one of you who stopped by my page to check in on me and for those who left encouraging words and advice. I’d especially like to thank CLPURNELL who stop by almost daily and hit the like button just to let me know that you’re still hanging in there with me. I truly feel blessed to be amongst a great group of people.
Here’s to another great upcoming year for each and every one of us who are becoming the best healthier you that you can be while spreading the SPARK along the way.
