To the Hundred Pound Losers out there…(pics!)

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

When I first started my journey, I was in awe of you. I knew you must be very special to accomplish the impossible – that’s what the end goal was for me then, impossible.

After a few months, I was inspired by you. Your kind words and pictures showed me where you’d come from, and how far you had journeyed without giving up.

With every step of my journey, you’ve encouraged me. You’ve shown me how to work through the tough times, and you’ve told me honestly that you struggle too. You’ve shared your ups and your downs with me.

Today, I join you. You see, because of everything you shared with me along the way, I’m a Hundred Pound Loser now too.

Thank you. Thank you to every SparkLoser out there who shares their journey, who shares their story, who shares their triumphs and failures for us to learn from. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, thank you from my kids who now have a mom with mega-energy and an unbreakable spirit!

Keep spreading the Spark!!
