During my three-year adventure on the SP site, I've enjoyed meeting people from so many different backgrounds and circumstances. How interesting it is to "meet" people with one common goal - better health.
Some of the handles are obvious, but others make me wonder what they mean. I sometimes think, how did they arrive at that screen name for themselves? In the past, I had sent in the idea for the SP article on how negative names affect our self-image. It's always a pleasure to see a sparker change their name from something negative to a more uplifting moniker.
And as different as each of us is, so are the blogs here. Some write about nothing but health topics. Others have never even mentioned health. Some write daily jokes. Others write religious quotes. There's certainly an assortment to choose from.
I've also noticed that the sparkers who have had the most success in losing weight are usually the ones with the fewest award points. That is, they've been busy moving, rather than sitting at the computer accumulating points (of which I'm guilty - smiling - although I DO move quite a bit).
Wishing all a good day.
