well, it's been kind of a hard year, but not without good times and accomplishments. it hasn't been quite a year since i joined spark, but today is my 40th birthday and one of the main reasons i started this journey. i thought it would be appropriate to reflect on how i've done so far. while i still have a long way to go i have done the one thing i desired to do, and that was be lighter at 40 than i was at 39. so far i've lost 40lbs this year, both with spark and a little on my own. i have also made exercise a real part of my life and not just something i do for 2 weeks and then quit. i feel that i have more stamina and energy. i am proud that i am making a real effort to be healthier. i am thankful to God who has kept me through all the rough times, and for good friends who encourage me when i really need it. this year has been a blessing in many ways and i am looking forward to the next year. here's to doing even more by 41.
