Words do not begin to describe the way i feel at this very moment.I am honored and deeply touched to have been made a sparkspeople motivator. When i woke up this morning i thought to myself today is going to be a great day, well i have only been awake for about 20 mins and it has gone from great to awesome. I got a message on my facebook and it was from my good friends mary and jo telling me there was a surprise on sparks people so come see. I thought surprise , what surprise so i hadnt even had a bite of my breakfast and i was logging in to my sparkspeople. I went to the message board and when i saw that i had been honored i thought to myself no way not me and when i loaded up my sparks page and saw that little motivation symbol i immediatley broke out sobbing. I couldt believe i was someone that people looked up to and someone who was viewed as a motivation. It reminded me of something that i was thinking about last night when i was waiting for the bus at the bus terminal. A very obese lady walked in and sat down and i immediatley felt sad for her. It wasnt that i was judging her for her weight problem but i said to my husband that i felt sad for her. I wished that some how i could share all the knowledge that i knew with even one person and perhaps make a difference in someone's life .Not necessarily that ladys but someones. I dont claim that i know everything there is to weight lose or that i hold some great secret but i do remember once upon a time i thought i could never lose the weight. So many people want to lose weight and feel the same thing that they cant ,but i now know i can lose the weight and i am losing the weight and one day i hope that i can pass on some of what i know to perhaps help someone else. So i guess what i am saying is i would like to be seen as a MOTIVATOR to help others reach thier goals and i have now achieved this and i couldnt be more thrilled. There are so many of you and if your reading this then you will that i am talking about you fine people that have been a true inspiration to me as well. I feel that alot of my success has been due to the fact that i have such an amazing support both here and at home and i thank everyone for your continue support.
