Thank You!

Wednesday, November 07, 2012

I have been notified by email that I have been nominated a Sparkpeople Motivator. OMG! WOW!! I am not only shocked but very pleasantly so. I still can't believe it! In fact I think I have bruises from pinching myself. emoticon I want to say thank you to those responsible for this honor. And it is truly an honor! It means a great deal to me.

I have never considered myself a motivator, of anything. I am just a regular person. A person who has fought, and sometimes lost the battle with obesity. It has been a long road to get to the point where I am currently at, a road I am still very much traveling on. I have good days and not so good ones. I have succeeded at times and failed miserably at others. I have highs and lows just like everyone else. I may continue to experience bumps along the way but that is okay. I will deal. I am not at goal yet but for the first time in my life I have no doubt I will make it.

Sparkpeople and the friends I have made here have helped me in more ways than I can ever say. I am grateful for each and every one of them and for the advice, support and sometimes shoulders they lend me. I am moving forward, changing what I can and learning, sometimes rather slowly to accept what I can't. I am once and for all taking the steps necessary to tackle my issues with food and my weight. I am glad that I am on this journey, and I am glad, very glad I found Sparkpeople to share it with! emoticon

    You deserve it Sally as you are a motivator to me. I love to read your blogs whether they are happy and full of joy or even when you are venting. It just shows that you are just like me--have good days along with bad ones. Just keep on keeping and don't quit or give up. (((HUGS))) dear friend. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
