Better than Facebook!!

Hey Sparkie Friends -
I was just listening to music and reading articles, etc on SP and was thinking how "at home" I feel at SP. There is truly something for everyone! All difference kinds of folks, different lifestyles, different backgrounds, different continents! What an incredible community we are all a part of. All of us heading in the same direction - focusing on a healthy lifestyle, finding like-minded folks who can encourage each of us in our food choices, exercise options and recreation activities!
I used to spend hours - literally hours - on FB everyday! Ridiculous and what a waste of time - for me! I wasted hours playing pointless games - I could have been working on getting this fluff off of my thighs! LOL!! Please don't misunderstand, FB has an incredible ability to reconnect you with people you haven't seen or heard from in decades (if you are old enough to be estranged from someone that long - LOL! like I am!) In that sense, it is a lot of fun - high school/college friends! Catching up and all of that - but for me, much of that serves to just get me depressed that I have allowed my body to get into the state that it is in.
Sparkpeople serves a much different purpose! While we still connect with one another, it is more of a connection with others who share the situation you are CURRENTLY involved in! We can really only "DO" something about the present - not the past, and we don't know the future! Make this moment count! What is the BEST use of this time right now???
Sorry I get on these "Ponderances" and my brain just goes on and on! I am just so thankful for Sparkpeople! If I can encourage someone else in this journey with me, then it is a good day! Many Blessings to each of you!! You can do this - we can do this! - Wait - we ARE DOING THIS!!!
GET IT!! WOO HOO!!!
