I feel like I am on a roller coaster with my health. I had been doing so well with my consistency and noticed big changes in my weight and the way my clothes were fitting.
I have been struggling with a knee injury over the past 6 weeks ( my doctor says it is from overcompensation due to my Achilles tear on the opposite side last year) but I have pushed through and found healthy opportunities to keep working out. Saturday night my knee just buckled and gave way and I fell forward. My toe was in the most awkward position. I thought for sure it was broken but thankfully it is just sprained. Now I cannot work out for 4 weeks and can barely stand. My wedding is less than three weeks away.
On top of that i have the flu AGAIN. I have been sick almost every other week since October. I'm so thankful to be getting married but just feel so defeated with everything else.

Today when I went to log in I saw that as of today I have been on this site for 1,500 days. I cannot believe that it has been this long.
I absolutely love this site. I have come to realize that whenever I am active on this site (tracking food and workouts, reading new recipes and supporting and being supported by my sparkfriends) the weight comes off. A couple of times, I have felt that I have the hang of it and cut down on my "sparktime". Lo and behold - the bad habits creep back in and so does the weight. So many people think that they can do things alone and don't ask for help. I am no longer one of those people. Sparkpeople works for me. I have everything I need right here. Food tracking, articles, recipes, fitness ideas (with wonderful video instruction), AN AMAZING NETWORK OF PEOPLE who are like me!
Thank you Sparkpeople for this wonderful site you have created for us. I look forward to the next 1,500 days.
