Today is my 7th SparkVersary.
I came to Spark 7 years ago in search of yet another easy secret weight loss cure. I was in yo-yo mode, overweight, fed up and disgusted.
While I did not find an easy weight loss cure, I did find the secret to weight loss! (And also the secret to maintaining that loss.) Not in my wildest dreams could I have imagined what this journey would bring.
Spark and my SparkFriends helped me get the diet mentality out of my head. I discovered that losing weight and keeping it off can never work if food is your sole focus.
What I've learned is that if you take care of yourself, physically, mentally, spiritually, if you find your happy, if you eat right and exercise, weight loss happens. It seems to be a byproduct of self care.
I am at goal. Maintaining, much like losing, takes daily work and fine-tuning. I don't expect that to go away. But I'm okay with that.
A daily dose of SP is just the right medicine to keep me on track. Love my SparkFriends (have seen many come and go). SP is first up in my toolbox.
I am here every day, though I've made myself a bit sparse over the last several months.
I have good reason :) - This is happiness times two.
