It's been about four years since I joined the SparkPeople community. My life and my weight have been on a rollercoaster since that time, but I can happily report that I am now officially down a smidge more than FIFTY pounds from my starting weight. That progress tracker that has haunted me in the past is safely situated on the better side of my halfway point, encouraging me to move forward in this journey. If you squint your eyes a bit (well, maybe more than a bit) and look at the screen from just the right angle, it even looks like I'm about to head into the home stretch. Well, maybe not quite yet...but soon enough!!!
The journey has been long, but the rewards of improved fitness and wellness have been more than I could have hoped for...the friends I've added along the way have made all the difference in this success.
To every new member stumbling upon this blog...hang in there. Given enough time, you can reach absolutely any healthy goal you set for yourself. Do whatever it is you are capable of achieving today...in this moment.
Every journey starts with a first step.
