Today I was going to write about my shopping experience yesterday and my clothing dilemma, but now I think I will save that for next week. I don't make that many blog posts, but I'm working on it because a) it helps me score some bonus points in the End of Year Challenge that I'm participating in, b) I know that it's actually helpful for other SparkPeeps and c) it helps me as well. Before I make a blog post I usually read through some other blogs in an attempt to get my brain in the mood. I just finished reading a bunch of blogs and feel so inspired by all of the success stories I read today. It's really amazing at how many people are out there on the same journey, with similar struggles and challenges. I guess this is one more reason why I think SparkPeople really has an edge over some of the other weight loss and fitness web sites out there. There are so many people using SparkPeople and sharing their stories, challenges and successes. I'm very thankful that I logged on back in May and stuck with it all this time. Yes, it would have been nice to have started earlier (or to have avoided getting fat in the first place), but it is what it is and I'm just glad that I didn't wait any longer than I did. Yesterday was my 7 Month SparkVersary, which I forgot about until I read a blog today from someone who started on the same day that I did. I've said this before, but it needs to be repeated: you can accomplish SO MUCH in 7 months! So, if you are reading this and feel like you have hit a plateau or feel like you are only taking baby steps, just stick with it and all of those baby steps will eventually add up to amazing results.
