Why am I here?

Saturday, February 19, 2011

Such a big question isn't it. It is easy to say I am here to lose weight, but is that the only reason? For me, I am here to feel better, physically and mentally. To begin living my life again without thinking that I am too big to do or wear that. To feel sexy (yep, even at my age).
But most of all I want to be proud that I with the help of my Spark Friends, am a happy person!

For me, Spark has been about living healthily, and the inspiration and support Sparkers are for each other - it's a great, safe place to be.

    It usually starts out for us because we want to lose weight, but it becomes so much more. Great reasons!

    Yes, it's great to give support as well as to receive. Guess that's what makes Sparks so successful. Nice to have people in the same place as we are. Those that make their goals wish to stay and cheer others on. It's a wonderful site. Glad to have you as a friend. Hugs, Keke

    Many started with the idea of losing weight. Somewhere along the journey I discovered it wasn't just the weight loss, but change of lifestyle and become more content with myself. It has taken me about 82 years to realize this, but then you know you can teach an old dog need tricks. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I never really thought of myself in the term of being sexy but I can sure relate to wanting to be happy. Great blog.

    I think we all start out with the "I want to weight" thought.......than something amazing happens when we really get into SP...we start a transformation of ourselves and it turns out to be the happiest time of our lives...........with all the support we could ever hope for. Have a great weekend and get out and enjoy the day. emoticon
