Just like Sparkpeople!

Thursday, December 05, 2013

I saw this blurb on a local TV station's Facebook page and had to click on the link. "It has taken one year and three months, but she has shed 110 pounds and is set to be sworn in on Dec. 12. Good for her!"

There were a couple of photos (probably before and after) but I wanted to read this story anyway. The woman featured in the short article could be a walking billboard for Sparkpeople, but she didn't use SP.

The final line of the article is what I experience, and what so many more of us experience on this site each day we're here. She didn't use SparkPeople, but she did learn what's most important in anyone's weight loss journey: being among those who understand, care and support you.

My hat's off to her, and all of us who choose the hard, but so worth it, way of losing weight with determination and a goal in mind.

    I read the article. How inspiring! I hope this young woman truly does take the uniform and run as far as she possibly can. It seems that with the determination she has she could do whatever she sets her mind to!
Thank you for sharing the article with us!

    emoticon emoticon for sharing with us. Support, whether you are receiving or giving is probably one of the most important things when trying to lose weight.
