When I first joined SP almost exactly a year ago, I thought I was here "just" to lose weight and get healthier. I signed up for SparkCoach - one of the BEST choices I've made - and heard Chris D. describe the story of a woman who fulfilled a dream by getting a book published. Something about the way he told the story resonated with my decades-long dream of doing the same thing, and I thought, "You know, maybe I could do that, too..."

So here we are, a year later, a few pounds lighter, and much more fit. It's been a year of friends here encouraging me and telling me I COULD. And now this...can't quite believe it myself...but I just saw it on the publisher's website! My book, my cover, my name! Yikes this is exciting!

So THANK YOU everyone. Thank you for all the positive because I think THAT'S what's made the difference. And thank you, Chris. The criss-cross effect that you talked about, how success in one area of our lives helps us make strides in other areas, is indeed true.

Wow, I think I need to go run or something. Feel like I'm vibrating in place! Have a wonderful day, everyone, and THANK YOU again!
