Okay, so it's been just over a year.
My SparkVersary was actually almost 2 weeks ago. Honestly, it came and went without my noticing. I had been so focused on recovering from the surgery and adjusting to the aftermath of that surgery that I hadn't paid attention. But here we are, a year later.
I reached my goal weight, and even went beyond it a bit within the last month while being sick. My actual weight is now 124, (wow 64 pounds lost!!) but that may likely change as i get my appetite back. I look back over the last year and I realize just how hard I worked and how very proud of where I am today.
I have worked hard and have learned so very much along the way. SparkPeople is just full of wonderful resources that really helped me through it all. I learned so much, and am still learning new things as time goes on. But best of all, SparkPeople is full of wonderful, caring, and encouraging people who help motivate each other. I know of people here that are some of the BEST cheerleaders to others, even when they are having a hard time themselves.
So here's to another year. A year in which I hope to give just as much help, hope, and encouragement as I got. I don't know where I would be without it.
