I really appreciate this team, too. I made a pact with myself to try to stop whining and stop making excuses a few years ago. When I catch myself, I try to re-frame things from a positive perspective. It is great for my well-being and has gotten me through some tough times. Finding a team where people look on the bright side is awesome.

Loved reading your post. I feel the same. SP helps me so much. we all can identify with each other. I have gone though hard times also but I always take the positive things that came out of the hard times to make me a stronger better person. Good friends are always there to support us and motivate us on our healthy life style change. I always try to see the good and positive of everything and I am very gratefull for all I have. Looking at life this way makes our souls enriched and viberantly healthy. But then there are people in this world who need the light to see all the good positive things we have to experience.

Hi guys!

I was just passing through and thought, wow! What a great place this is! I love positive minded people. I am a terminally optimistic person, well most of the time. Lol. It's sort of hard to find a place with upbeat members. Not that I don't have my moments, but it's just nice to talk to members that view life through rainbow glasses sometimes. This feels like home to me emoticon I know there are members that have lots of problems. I have lots of health problems, but it rarely gets me down, I just keep on keeping on, if you know what I mean. I see life as a glass half full, full of love and hope and service.

I've been a SparkPeople member for about a year and a half, but only became serious about lifestyle change six months ago. SparkPeople has become my internet home. This place has definitely grown on me and now I can't imagine life without it. My morning starts with SP and ends with SP and I like it. I try to give back as much as a can. Sometimes I join in forum conversations and sometimes I blog, I want to learn to improve my blogging with photos and pictures and touch peoples lives like many bloggers have done for me. There are some awesome bloggers that motivate and inspire me. I also try my best to help members to the best of my ability through virtual gifts and messages of hope. My SP page is okay, but I sure wouldn't mind making it better. Isn't it lovely we have a place to showcase ourselves as individuals?

SP has definitely changed my life in many good ways. I haven't lost a truck load of weight. I'm not near my goal weight, not yet, but I know, in time, I will. How do I know this? Because I have faith in SparkPeople and I have faith in it's members. I also have faith in life, myself and my God. It's places like SP and this forum that inspire and make me believe this.

I just want to thank you in advance for being here for me. I hope I can give back as much as I receive from you guys. I hope we can have fun and have interesting conversations over lunch from time to time, Isn't that what life is about, friends and family and of course, SparkPeople! Lol

Have a good evening!
