Seems like these monthly sparkiversaries make my mind wander to all of the great changes this terrific website has reinforced. I came to SP six months ago, after three months of really good progress on my own. So, this new lifestyle change has been going on since October '08. Sometimes it feels like such a long time ago and that I should be so much further along in my progress than I am. But, realistically, it is a very short time when compared with an entire lifetime of poor eating habits. This morning, I smiled at the simple - yet SO important - daily breakfast that has made a HUGE difference for me. I always skipped breakfast because I "wasn't hungry in the morning." But hey, did I ever make up for it later in the day as a result! And every time I grocery shop, I am constantly reminded as I read the labels, how much my selection of food has changed. There are countless differences since 9 months ago. What's really funny, okay, not really funny, is that I did not want to continue on SP. I thought it was too confusing with too much information. I thought it an annoyance to track everything and a chore to log on daily to get those silly awards. NOT SO. This site has reinforced my good habits, and the awards are symbols of friendship, progress, and so many things that are smart reminders as well. Happy 6 month SPanniversary to me. And for the millionth time - a HUGE shout-out to all my pals who've been the best. You are appreciated so much. Have a good day.
