My 1 Yr Sparkversary!

Tuesday, May 26, 2009

emoticon It's so hard to believe that I joined Spark People a year ago. One of my first teams, was the one at the time I joined the Class of May 11-17, 2009. The team has come up with a new name, we are now called "SURVIVORS" Class of May 11-17.
We are Survivors because we have stayed with Spark ,and continue to striffe on meeting are goals.
I love this team, and have learned so much. I've learned about fitness, and nutrition, and continue to keep learning new things.
Most of all, I have more confidence in myself, than I ever have had in my entire life. I give Spark, and all of the wonderful people on here for helping me to achieve this.
There are always someone to give a kind word, in trying to motivate someone to not give up. This is a new lifestyle, so it's an ongoing project for the rest of our lives. This is how I feel, anyway.
I might not have lost that much weight ,yet, but I know that's partly because I need to try to do better on my calorie intake. I know that I either have to work out ,and burn lots more calories, or else not take in as many calories.
I do like that Spark has given me a guide line to go by ,on how many calories I should have a day.
I enjoy all of my Spark teams, as well as the message boards. There are helpful tips from team members listed on message boards, and just a place to chat in general.
It's been a year, but I will continue to set goals, and aim to reach them. This isn't just about reaching a goal ,but to be able to enjoy my life , in a healthier way.
To this , I can say Thank You , Spark People, and to all of my Spark Teams, and friends. I'm also appreciative of all who have made comments on my Spark Page, as well.
Happy Spark Anniversary to me!

  Happy Anniversary!
It is a journey and process, not so much a final destination. You have such a great attitude - what a gift that is.
Good luck as you continue on your journey to better health.
