2 years today

Sunday, February 24, 2013

Two years ago today I joined Spark People. What a change I have seen in my body and in my life!! emoticon I weigh less. I have more confidence. I feel more self- assured. Most of all, I love me and my body!! emoticon

It has been a time for growing and achieving. I have grown the friends I have online. I have even met a friend from out of state in person and another from out of state I met on Skype. I have almost achieved my short term weight loss goal, although it has taken me 2 years to get there. My long term goal won't be far behind now that I am really working hard to get there. emoticon

I walk almost everyday and when I don't I at least get some exercise that day. My house has never been cleaner!! It doesn't hurt to vacuum and my knees don't hurt like they used to everyday. emoticon

Overall, I feel so good. I am so happy to have found Spark People and to have so many Spark friends! Thank you all for supporting me through all those times when I didn't really care what I ate or if I exercised. Your comments have gotten me through some really dark days with my mood disorder and my weight loss. I have friends all over this country, Canada, the UK, and many other places. emoticon When I woke up this morning I didn't even realize it was my 2 year Sparkversary. I looked at the calendar and at my spark page and emoticon !!!!!!!!! I been on her for 2 years. It has not only helped me with weight loss, improved nutrition, getting more exercise and feeling better about myself. It has helped me improve my life! What a great feeling!

Thanks again to all my Spark Friends for being there! emoticon You are one of the reasons I stay on this site. Thanks also to the team I co-lead with some great ladies. The Lose 100+ pounds in a Year team. I didn't reach that goal, but I continue on the team to help lead and encourage my fellow teammates! They are my cheerleaders and I try to be theirs. We have a great team! The 25 pound challenge is not something I have ever won, but I continue to participate and cheer others on. It gives me something to strive for each quarter. emoticon emoticon together!
