Tears of joy

(Sticking just one eye from round the corner) Hey guys!
One or two month ago my mindset was pretty much set on people not really caring at all.
Even then I already knew that SparkPeople is special in that way, people do care here.
We share common problems, experiences and that make us open minded to one another.
Some of my closer SparkFriends may notice that I've been quite skeptical on the magnitude of caring and amount of influence one may have on others.

Yesterday I've written a blog, Progress pictures.
www.sparkpeople.com/mypa
ge_public_journal_individu
al.asp?blog_id=5549687

Frankly that was sort of simple update, cause I made a new picture and was showing it to my family, so I decided to put it up on the blog, no big deal.

Response I got just blew my mind out! It's like waves of joy that keep coming and coming.
This is an unbelievable experience for me, I can't express enough this overwhelming spiritual elevation. I will definitely carry this moment through all my life, it's so remarkable to me.

Another happy thing is that I've been honored with "SparkPeople Moivator".
But I think it's other way around, you guys are source of my inspiration.
And I got a huge charge and for that I'm deeply thankful to each and everyone of you.
Oh my god, I can't put it in words, how much it all means to me.
For one thing, if someday somehow I even have a slightest idea to stop and go in the other direction, can just open up this blog read it again and your words will put me right back on.

Lately I've been thinking that I'm almost done with my transformation into a healthy person, not on the outside certainly, but on the inside, in my mind and my habits and now lows of nature will bring me where I should be.
So I thought of what should I do to help other people and seeing such a response to simple progress update, that's just seals the deal for me.

It's not New Years yet, but I have a pledge to make.
I will put all my strength, knowledge and sarcasm:) into spreading this inspiration, with which you charged me, to overcome one of the biggest issues of this, still young, millennium.
I will do everything I can to help people achieve healthy eating habits and lifestyle.

I'm stoic to the bone, but you brought something unexpected in me and title of this blog is real, that's unbelievable and maybe even inconceivable to me, but it's real...and that's all you guys!

Thank you again everybody....Gip, Gip, Hooray! ... Gip, Gip, Hooray! ... Gip, Gip, Hooray!

    Thank you for being an inspiration to many & being inspired in return. I think that is what life is about, helping others and in turn you are helped as well! Hope you are doing well in the New Year and staying with a good program of exercise, food, sleep and water~

    Oh my goodness! Your blog today and the link to your pictures has filled up my cup of joy. I feel the same way about SparkPeople! It is hard to open yourself up in such a revealing way and join in the community but, I feel empowered by doing that! Just, CONGRATULATIONS on your progress, and your desire to help as many as you can which is something I strive for also. emoticon emoticon emoticon
