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!!
