I absolutely love my SparkFriends. What a great inspiration and honest (very REAL) feedback you are to me!
And I love the Spark Teams -- all the teams I joined, even if I don't check in all the time.
When I first signed on to SparkPeople, I became part of the SP Class of September 30 - October 6, 2012 team. There are 7,771 people on that team who signed up that week, and there are still a few of us still checking in from time to time.
I'm on SparkPeople every day (I have missed only 2 days since Oct 2, 2012), but usually I only get onto my team boards once or twice a week, but I try to check in with those original teammates when I can.
I notice that it seems that most of us who are still sticking with it are focused on better health rather than a number on the scale. I know that I'm a few pounds above my lowest Spark weight, and I'm sure that some would consider that a failure. But I celebrate my progress knowing that, by focusing on my over all health, my 61 year old body is moving and groovin' like it hasn't done in years. And my mental and emotional health has improved as well (no doubt largely as a result of my zany SparkFriends)!
And, at least for me, that's what it's all about!
How about you? What changes have you made since you've been Sparking? How have your goals changed? I'd love to hear . . . .
