What a difference


Sunday, August 12, 2012

Todays blog is dedicated to this wonderful website. I originally joined Spark People back in 2006. It was agreat site! It gave you so much information and really helped you understand what you were putting into your body. I think I lost about 30 pounds before i stopped using it for some reason. I came back again in 2010 I think... but it didn't last very long.

This time the site seems different. It really doesn't seem like it changed alot, but the support system has grown immensely. Maybe it's just because it has grown a lot since 2006 and there are a lot more people on here. I've always been kind of an introvert and I'd make posts on message boards, but until this time back I don't think I've ever had a message posted on my Spark Page.

Thank you for all the support I'm getting this time from everyone. I really appreciate how everyone is reaching out. And thanks to SparkPeople for giving us all the incentive to do it. You are all making a difference!

    The support component is HUGE and I agree, it really makes a difference.

I was explaining to my friend the other day (who hasn't joined, but I keep raving about the site to her) ... sometimes those little comments on your blog, or a kind word of encouragement, or gentle kick in the backside - is all you need to get you through a rough day and keep you on the straight and narrow! It might seem goofy, but a few kind words really do help (me at least) as I work through this journey!

Best of luck to you! YOU can do this! (You're the only one who can - but we're all here to cheer you on!)
