11 Years: Has It Really Been That Long?
Wednesday, August 14, 2019
It isn't quite my sparkversary just yet, but I thought I'd take a quick peak to see how long I've been on here, and it will be 11 years in just a couple of weeks. Boy, time flies when you are having fun, and to be honest, it has been fun.
Weight loss, fun? Gaining it all back, fun? Pain, sweat, tears, fun? Yes, it has. Why? It is the journey and the people you meet along the way. I've spent a lot of time here on SparkPeople meeting a lot of wonderful people who have helped me along the way. Who have helped to support me through the highs and lows of my journey.
Those wonderful people helped me celebrate when I reached my goal 4 years ago.
Those wonderful people encouraged me when I felt defeated when I gained it all back 2 years later after a bad injury sidelined me.
I've been a member of some wonderful SparkTeams, even a leader of a few. I've cheered on others, given encouragement, cried when we lost a member. I've rejoiced when others met their goals. I've stood at the finish line encouraging others to push through.
It is a journey, a marathon, not a sprint. We're all in this together. We all have the same goal to be healthy. And it won't happen over night. We'll all have victories. We'll all have defeats. But the main thing is to never give up.
Thank you to SparkPeople for being here for all of us.
