I was going to do a long list on here with names of individuals who have stood out to me, but I really don't want to make it look like I am forgetting others (which I am bound to do). So, I will be sending goodies out later on today to those I need to really send to.
First of all, the positivity on the Friend's Feeds and in the blogs in general have been truly awesome and have relit the Spark in me! I feel like Katy Perry in the video "Firework" which, coincidentally, I watched for the first time while running this morning. I was feeling not too great during my third mile when it came on, and I needed it!
Just like I need all of you. I have been FEEDING off your energy, your motivation, your encouragement, and your want and need to be healthy! Those of you who are struggling, I take from you, too, because I know how easy it is to slide back into being unmotivated and, especially during these winter months, feeling down in the dumps and just not wanting to move.
Someone the other day asked me what it took for me to lose this weight. I said to her, "For my nutrition, Weight Watchers. For fitness, the gym and running. But for everything else, for motivation, for getting my feelings out there, for planning, for EVERYTHING, I turn to Sparkpeople." And that is so true.
I need all of you far more than you need me. And I am grateful to you for that!
