So many reasons to LOVE sparkpeople!!

Saturday, November 10, 2012

Good morning to everyone and Happy Saturday!
I was reading one of the articles this morning about the team that lost 626 lbs and I could really relate to what the author was saying. When she joined spark people, she wasn't sure that she wanted to post and spent time lurking around and posting a couple of times before she realized how great it was. Such a true story.
When I first started sparkpeople, I mostly did it for the food tracker. I didn't know that I would come to depend on the encouragement and companionship that this website provides. It is great to read about those that have succeeded, those that are stuck, those that are having some issues because it helps to know that you are not alone, we are all at some point, somewhere where others are or have been.
It is great to get a note from others cheering us on, helping us to know that tomorrow is another day and we can do it if we continue to push ourselves! This website has become a form of therapy for me and even though I am not a binge eater or emotional eater, I am just a person who loves food and our society has perpetuated that BIG plate servings. It is time to stop that and think about what we are doing to ourselves.
To all of my spark friends, thank you so much for the encouragement and the friendship that is offered every day. I am so thankful that I stumbled onto this website and I spread the word every chance I get. Good luck to each and every person on their journey. One day at a time, that is all we can do but remember to live and enjoy each day because this is our life right here and now! Have a great weekend and keep sparking!! emoticon

    Thanks back to you for posting such a great blog!! I totally agree...this site has helped me through so much...good word you used...therapy! I think once ones realize what the lady you talked about starts participating more, they see how great it is. The support-like your awesome comment on my new blog and last blog-really keeps me going! That is why I keep blogging, I want to in some way help others and encourage them...paying it forward. And when they comment on my blogs, friend feed and on my page, it is so nice and motivating to me. I love SP and my SPF's and am so happy I am still here & I will be for as long as I can!
