SIX years!

Saturday, August 25, 2012

Today marks SIX big years since I found SparkPeople. emoticon emoticon
I remember that I had read a post on a running website about Spark and decided to check it out. I didn't jump right into anything as I was confused by it all. The main thing is, I stayed.
I kept showing up, day after day, week after week.. and now year after year! emoticon

What have I gotten out of Sparkpeople that would keep me here for six years?!
The great people, it's free, the amazing articles, the food/fitness tracking, and on and on.
I have learned alot about myself through my time here and continue to learn.
I came to Spark about 15 pounds heavier then I am now. However, I have maintained an over 50 pound weight loss for 10 years. Spark has helped me do this as well as my more active name says it.. I run!

I will continue to stay on Spark because the journey isn't finished. I've got lots more to learn, lots more great goals to achieve, and many more people to help me along the way.
A huge thank you to each and every person that has touched my journey here. You have shared something with me that has changed me in one way or another. I am grateful for you and to this amazing website and all those who work so hard to keep it going.

May each of you reading this be blessed in your Spark and life journey. It's a great ride!

    Six years, and 50 pounds; that's a HUGE achievement! emoticon
Even though I've only been on SP about 2.5 years, I totally agree with your reasons for staying! I wish you continued success! emoticon
