One year Spark anniversary

Friday, September 02, 2011

Hi everyone! I'm celebrating one year today, since I am a member of Spark emoticon I feel so lucky to have been on this site and learned so much from so many of you. The health articles, quizzes, boards, blogs, team leaders, new friends, and also friends for a year now-- with many, have helped me with my weight loss journey. Spark has become my daily "friend" as I log in each day and find new ways and also continue with what I have learned so far. Thanks for being here!
Thanks for the encouragement and friendship I've found with some very special "sparkers". You know who you are. (-: Sometimes a little advice goes a long way and it is amazing how we can help each other. We seem to be on the same page. It is wonderful!
One new activity that I am enjoying now is Water Aerobics. It is great fun and I feel
so energized after the class. emoticonI've also met many new people in the class, that are friendly, health conscious and motivated to become thinner and more attractive. I am attracted to people like this for sure. Aren't you?
Positive thinking and planning each day on this journey has helped me so far and I am keeping it. It is a winner and really keeps me focused. emoticon
As I begin year two with Spark, I plan to be even more focused. I have learned that it takes time and it is not a race to get to goal, it is a health conscious journey for life. emoticon I am trying to do at least one new activity a week now to help supplement my time away (after surgery) and also a fast break routine. It is
lots of fun and makes me smile. Planning is key and I am off to finish my plans for
the rest of the week and weekend. Safe travels on the holiday to all. Keep smiling, so people will wonder what you are up to. (-: and remember-- it is contagious!
