I was checking my Sparkpage today and realized I had been with Sparkpeople for 9 months now! There is so much that has changed simply due to me joining Sparkpeople.
First, I'm exercising!! I have 6,800 fitness minutes. If I hadn't joined, that total would really, literally be "0". I've never really been a fan of exercising, but I tried out a few things and found something I really love- the Leslie Samson "Walk Away the Pounds" DVDs.
Second, not sure if it is the exercise, eating different foods, or just being more aware of my health, but I feel much better physically, emotionally, and mentally. It's amazing how by treating my body a little better, I feel so much better!
And third, but probably my favorite thing: I've made a ton of friends on Sparkpeople and am even the co-leader of two teams now, and belong to many more. I also enjoy being a community team member. I can't imagine not knowing and getting to interact with all of the great people I've met.
So, 9 months gone. It's been great and I know one thing for sure: I'll still be here another 9 months from now!
Hoping you are all doing well,
