I'm getting very close to my two year "surgiversary" on Sept 9th. I can't believe it's been two years already. Time has flown by and yet every day I am still amazed at how different my life is now and how much happier I am.
I wandered away from SparkPeople for awhile....got caught up in weddings. My daughter got married in April and then my son got married in July!! Leave it to my kids to pick the same year and have their weddings three months apart.....Geez!! So throw in bridal showers and rehearsal dinners, birthday parties, a busy job, life in general and throw in a new addiction to FaceBook and I found that I was going weeks, sometimes over a month without even logging in. Throughout all of this mayhem I've maintained my goal weight, but have found myself falling way off the wagon with my exercise and just plain old missing the support of other people that have experienced the same life changing event as myself. So I decided to get my butt back on SP!!!
Guess what? The whole team is different.....(except for Nena) and I realize how far out of touch I've gotten with my support group. I miss my surgery sisters. We still see each other post on FB, so it's not as though we've all lost touch, but it's not the same. I wish everyone would come back. I'm hoping to make new friends on the Sparkler's team - so I'm just jumping right back in and becoming involved again. I know I need this team for support and encouragement and I want to do the same for others. I know this journey is never done, I always have to be on my game, and I know I will always need a support group as part of my plan.
Two years down, a lifetime to go............................
