Today marks 5 years with SparkPeople

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

Today is my emoticon with SparkPeople. What have I done in 5 years?

Through reading the articles, emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon I have learned the right things to eat in the right proportions, I quit drinking soda, I started eating more green veggies, I've eaten things that I never thought I would and they actually taste good.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon I've learned exercise CAN be fun, I like how tired I feel after a good workout, I actually like sweat. I learned you don't really need all kinds of exercise equipment, you can use your imagination

I found out I'm not the only one that has failed and succeeded, and failed and got back up again and I will not fail.

emoticon emoticon I've made lots of great friends, I've cried with Spark friends over losses great and small, I've laughed at stories and jokes, I've learned their tips and tricks for things, I've met some wonderful Spark Friends at our New Hampshire Spark rallies, I've lost friends who are no longer Spark members.

I've shared my stories and my life both here in my home country of the USA and overseas from emoticon Saudi Arabia.

I've really emoticon emoticon HATED some of the changes SparkPeople has made to the site and still hate the changes and liked some others.
emoticon emoticon Spark People has helped me figure out what I was doing wrong and helped me do things right. I may not follow through to the T, but SparkPeople worked for me. I haven't been as faithful and lost all the weight I need to lose but I'm working on it, I may not be around as much as I used to but I still find time to check in and say hello.

Life is going to get a whole lot busier in the next 6 weeks, some good, some not so good or fun but I'll make the best of it.

SPARK ON! emoticon

I have been here about six years, don't exactly remember the date but, I too, have learned so much here and met many wonderful people. None in person, but you all are close to my heart.

I hope things don't get overly busy for you.
