Ceri, you my dear are the one who first invited me to join the 5% Challenges. We were both Teddy Bears at that time ... remember. It was the Winter Challenge 2011. I lost a lot of weight and was excited for the next challenge. Since then for many years you have exercised your Labor of Love to oversee with Lynn the entire challenge community. I want to declare my forever Thanks for your lasting support, encouragement and friendship. You are one in a million girlfriend and I’m so happy that you have blessed my life. emoticon emoticon emoticon Your forever friend Bev

Ceri-- emoticon for all you have done for the challenges. I have been doing challenges since 2012 and I always saw you as a leader. I understand what it takes, and the time it takes to be a leader on a team. I became ML but had a big upset in my personal life. No one on the team judged me as far as I know for leaving the post, but so many left comments of support. I will always remember your kindness.

I love SparkPeople

I am in tears as I read Ceri's message. For years we have worked together on the 5% Challenges. She has give selfless devotion to make the Challenges such a success and helped people get on their way to healthier lives. Ceri has been so kind and inspired many people, friended many and helped many.

I wish her every success in her future endeavors.

Ceri sent the Spring 5% Community this message.

My Dear Friends,

As the last week of the Spring 5% comes to a close, I wanted to... share a personal message.... from me.

In life, you will realize there is a role for everyone you meet. Some will test you, some will use you, some will love you, and some will teach you. But the ones who are truly important are the ones who bring out the best in you. They are the rare and amazing people to remind you why it's worth it.- Unknown

During my nearly 10 years of doing this challenge, I have been tested, loved, and taught. If I have been used I never knew. One thing I do know is you are all rare and amazing people who have become my friends, emoticon confidants, and champions in one way or another and have made my journey on Spark worth every second! I love this Challenge Community and each of you.

The Summer Challenge is number 40 for me. Some of you have been doing this from the beginning just like me. When I started we were 10 teams with 3 leaders and 30 members each. There is a reason the challenge continues to grow. We are warm, welcoming, and 'weight-less'. We are like family!

Challenge number 40 will be my last, at least for a while. God is moving me forward while urging me back to once again serve as I did in past ministry. If God is calling you to something you must answer that call. As most of you know I was very ill for nearly 4 years. That experience changed me. I want to live a life of Honor and serve the One Who gives me breath.

I will be helping Carl, (CGPS1795) with team set-up for Summer and he will be ready to take on that job when the fall challenge starts. Lynn, Heidi, Monaca, and Joanne will continue in their current positions on the Overall Community Leadership Crew. Heidi will coordinate the Radar Report with the Landing information. (She has already started this).

I know you will continue to participate with the same commitment to your teams as you have always done.

I am always only a click or two away. Please feel free to add me to your Social Media, Fitbit or Email and stay in touch if you like. Please identify yourself by your Spark Name if you add me.
