This Spark motivation slogan sums it up pretty good!
2 years of Sparking and now calling my own success because though I have not yet fully attained my original goal, I have maintained a 40 lb weight loss for over a year. I still Spark, track nutrition, blog, read up and check in with Spark friends and teams because this journey is not over. I work to continue making healthy choices that promote weightloss, maintainance, fitness, and emotional well-being. Sparking works for me! Special thanks to all fellow Sparkers who share inspiration, information, even setbacks and heartaches, then more motivation. Keep Sparking!
I am so grateful for Sparkpeople.com. I never thought I'd stick it out this long with tracking and following the site. There is still soooo much I have not explored here. Some days my interest wains or I get "too" busy but I always come back and continue. I read a post just tonight that made me realize why I like this place. I think it has a lot to do with making this journey a lifestyle and Sparkers here show how all this works or doesn't work in real lives. Spark has also taught me to refocus and retrain my DIET MENTALITY. I cringe when hear friends say they are trying a "new diet" or "diet supplement." Yes, I have to restart time and time again but each time it's just l little more "tweaking." I don't have that just ditch it forever, I can't do this anymore mentality. It is sooo good to have a solid foundation that just needs to "tweaking."
My mental state is just as reformed as my physical state. That feels awesome. So keep Sparking everyone!
