WOW--I was named a Spark Motivator!


Tuesday, January 25, 2011

What a nice surprise on a Monday morning! And I have had so many notes on my page from complimentary people. I read someone's blog yesterday about how GREAT Spark is--no one is nasty or condescending here. There is no need for a moderator on this site, because there are no fights here, everyone is supportive, inspirational, helpful and kind. There is no place on Spark for being judgmental or mean. It's MY kind of place!

Thanks to everyone who supported me along the way and who are still supporting me as I struggle with this last 20 pounds. These last 20 may be the hardest of all. But like I have always said, I'm in no hurry for them to come off--I'm happy with how I look, and I know that THIS is a lifestyle, NOT a diet. I don't care if it takes six months or six years, I KNOW I will eventually get there. There will be no END when I hit my goal, only a continuance of making healthy choices for the rest of my life!

    Congrats!!! emoticon emoticon

I also like the Sparkpeople, there are no negative comments from anyone only encouraging one. Making changes are not an easy feat. It takes commitment and courage also.
Bravo!

    You are definitely an inspiration to many.
I know those last pounds are the hardest, but like you said you'll get there.
Even then it's not an end, the journey continues, to live a life of healthy and fit living.
Congratulations and Spark on. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I love it when we all realize there is no end! I have really changed my way of thinking on that one... I used to look at lifestyle changes as diets with ENDS to them!

YOU deserve to be nominated MOTIVATOR!! YOU ROCK!!!!
