5 years with Sparkpeople

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Monday, January 13, 2014

Yesterday it was 5 years ago since I signed up with Sparkpeople, although I didn't really get active on this site 3 months later.
I love all the new friends I have made, the recipes I discovered and the knowledge I have gained.
My weight is a little less than when I started and over the 5 years I have been up 10 pounds and down 10 pounds from where I am now - we live and learn :) The good thing is that I know better how to deal with set backs and am less likely to panic when the weight goes up - I know how to get it off again!

I want to thank all my spark buddies for being here for me and for all the support and friendship you have given me! It is the people that make Sparkpeople work!!

    Congrats! We met on SP when you were still a full-time Coloradoan! You have been more successful than I at learning healthy eating habits. You're inspiring to "slower learners" like me! Besides that I live vicariously through your Mexico experience. My hometown (near Rocky Mtn. Nat'l Park) has had (is receiving today) about 30" of snow & more coming. Luckily we left home a week earlier than usual for CA & missed the highway closures, etc. (especially since we remove our snow tires before embarking to the coast!)

Your Plan is working for you and you've got those extra 7# nailed. Their days are numbered for sure! Keep up the great lifestyle! emoticon
Hugs!

    I dropped out for a couple years. I was hoping you'd still be here when I came back, and now I see that your blog was "featured." Good for you! I'll look forward to more. Though they have changed things on the site, and now it's not so easy to find blogs. I'm glad all is well with you in Mexico. emoticon

I too have been with SparkPeople for 5 years. I lost about 24 lbs in total though I went up and down, up and down.

  Great, the longer one's with 'sparkle' the more everyone learns and experiences.

    You have done well! I know you can lose weight when you put your mind to it. Having made the friends here too and getting to know even more is a beautiful feeling.

God bless !!!!!

  I've maintained weight loss for five years, too, so it's good to hear from another long-term person. My biggest joy is that I no longer panic when I put on a pound or two because I know that if I just eat within my calorie range and exercise, it is going to come off. The other bonus is that my eating has changed enough that I don't put on more than two pounds.
