5) Weight loss, fitness and healthy living are a journey not a destination.

I am on this journey for the long haul - I've left SP for months at a time and always come back. I would love some new Sparkfriends because a lot of folks left along the way and did not come back :( - and back to #2 I like the company for this journey!
