Hitting 15# of weight loss was such a great mental boost for me this past weekend...and it made me reflect (again) on what a great program this is. Because I set goals and can track them I am all the more interested in committing to keeping my promises to myself and to all the teammates on my various teams.
It's just incredible having like-minded buddies across the globe on the same mission as me who can relate to the journey because they are on a similar path themselves. It is so powerful how a simple email of encouragement can keep my momentum going!
Thanks to all of you for helping me! I remember when I first joined (and really had no idea what a precious gem I had just struck) and entered my goal weight how neat I thought it was when the website came back with a calculated date for when I would hit my goal. I hadn't considered this at all - and it made it all so tangible. That was really when I decided, "Yes, I can do this!". Now when I watch the line vs my progress I can gauge whether I'm on track or not...it's just so wonderful.
Did I mention that ?? Well, I really do love SparkPeople - and I mean that - the Spark People...my Spark Friends who have helped get me here...and who I know will stick by me to the finish. Just like I will most definitely stick with them!
