5th Year Sparkiversary vlog

Friday, February 08, 2013

This is my very first vlog...and it's the very first take too. Just wanted to say hello to all my fellow Sparkers.. and send a thank you as well.

Sorry about the low sound quality...and for the water bottle banging loud on the table! LOL

I tried to do another take, but it's not so great when you get overemotional and start crying in a vlog! LOL

And just a shout out to Jenni real quick: I am wearing the bracelet on my right wrist!! I wanted to mention it in the video but forgot!!

Thanks for all the support Sparkers!!

    You would be the ONLY one who would make me log on to SP on my computer, I've been ignoring it since I got my iphone, but I couldn't see the video on it.
I'm so glad to "meet" you! You had me emoticon
emoticon is definitely a big deal!! I'm SO motivated to keep up my maintenance.

    Thanks for the shout out! You have added a bright Spark to my life for the last 5 years! You never fail to make me think, or giggle, or just keep going on tough days.

I can't thank you enough for that. emoticon

I will have to retaliate... heh!

Keep on keepin' on!

    Wow, Annie! Nice to meet you! It's really incredible to be able to hear a sparkfriend's voice! You are the nice, kind and sweet person I had imagined you would be.
The sparkpeople community is really lucky to have people like you who are still here after five years. We all know that losing the weight is something that most people can do, one way or another, after one or a hundred attempts. But maintaining a healthy weight for five years is the really difficult part. For once more, thank you so much for staying here, giving all of us hope that it's doable!
Happy 5th Sparkversary!

    I am glad Amanda! To be completely honest, it's weird to put something (myself in person) out there since this is such a written format! And if you cried with this, then you'd be bawling at the second breakdown! It's a very emotional thing, this losing/maintaining goes deeper than just the whole's transforming on both the physical and mental planes.
