1000 Days of Spark

Monday, July 18, 2011

...or at least 1000 days of logging in and spinning the wheel! I realized when I checked my milestones today that I've logged in 1000 days as of today. At first those logins were to record exercise in an effort to build a new habit. Later the focus was to record nutrition to figure out why I was seeing health changes I was NOT willing to live with. From there my logins moved into full commitment mode - learning as much as I could, supporting others and gaining support as I worked to reach a healthy weight.

Now that I've been a SparkMember almost 33 months, my logins are a maintenance thing I still do for myself every day. I enjoy the positive folks I find here, and still give/receive a lot of encouragement. I still learn things from the blogs and articles. I still use the nutrition and exercise trackers to hold myself accountable and maintain the health improvements I've achieved. But I have to admit, I'm not as active as I once was on the site. Instead I'm out enjoying the terrific life I have. And since I've been able to achieve my goals here at SparkPeople, isn't that the best gift of these 1000 days?

    It's sort of like you have graduated from high school and moved out of the home and onto college isn't it?

    We need people like you in the "class ahead of us" to touch base and once in a while and see what wonders can lie ahead.

    Thanks for this wonderful post. It is so on point.

    I like your blog. It's so easy to get caught up with what's right in front of me rather than dreaming of the future...envisioning the results of the lifestyle changes I'm making now. Your blog brought me back to that. We should be able to enjoy life................. Thanks for sharing!! emoticon

    emoticon on the 1000 days! That is just amazing! Since I got my laptop, I log in every day, too........but previously, we would lose our internet provider service periodically.....It is better, now.
