10 years online. Wow that was quick


Monday, November 12, 2012


Okay, so I came online in 2002. Seems like forever ago but only ten years. Some of the pictures have been cropped so much they are grainy but many of them are the first pictures I took online. Before that, I never took pictures and even after coming online I would only take head shots. Spark people have done so much for me. Not only with all the support but it has given me the courage to put myself out there. To exercise on video. Never in a million years would I have thought I would do that. I'm truly making progress. When I started online, I was 51 now 61. Whew, how time flies. Looking forward to the next 10 as a healthy fit woman. emoticon

    Carmel,
I absolutely LOVE this video Blog!I love your perseverance, your dedication to "You". I love the way you reflect on the things that work for you and go for the next challenge to get you to the next stage in your life. Keep on Keeping on girl! We all have setbacks, I like that you ponder the setbacks for a moment and push yourself through.

I am grateful that 3 years ago you helped me navigate through the sparkpeople program. I didn't have a clue what I was doing on the website, you helped me every step of the way and for that I am grateful. I especially like how you have shared your life challenges (good and not so good) with your Sparkfriends. For me I learned and was motivated by you so many times and for that I am grateful.

Continue doing what you are doing, You're doing GREAT!!!!
This Thanksgiving, I am grateful for you!

Your Sparkfriend
Slim

    I LOVE how the last full minute is of you standing tall and not hiding anymore! And there's "My Girl" with her gorgeous smile. Have I ever told you that you take amazing photographs? I never look right in mine, but you are extremely photogenic!

But I gotta tell you.... you need to break out that Tina Turner wig again and let me see that one! I loved it! It was a whole different look for you! I was waiting to see Mel Gibson come strolling in behind you wearing something very "Beyond Thunderdome"!

Hope you are having a great day! Love you!
