Day 826- I Want to Invite You All To My Wedding!!!

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Friday, March 07, 2014

Dearest Sparkfriends,

Yesterday was a stressful day for me, and I was feeling a bit exhausted. But all it took was one look at my SparkPage and the amazing wall posts, and comments on my photos and blogs to almost bring tears to my eyes.

You all are such a wonderful and positive part of my life. Although I've only met a few of you in real life, my friends on SparkPeople give me so much drive and desire to succeed that I'm not sure what I would do without all of you. I feel like you all have really gotten to know the true me, who I am and who I've always been, no matter what weight I've been. The love and support you provide on a daily basis is such an amazing gift and I'm so thankful.

So I've been toying with an idea. While I obviously can't invite my 1800+ SparkFriends to my wedding, I'm trying to figure out if there is a way to live stream my reception on here! You all have been with me through my dating and engagement and now I'm getting married and still want you all to be a part! There are services that are quite costly that can do it live, but I'm also looking at posting it possibly on YouTube so y'all can watch at your leisure. It may seem crazy to some people but if I can figure out how to do it (without infringing on copyright or some other weird obstacles) I'm going to. Because y'all mean so much to me.

I'm also currently in a contest to win all my invitations, programs, thank you notes...etc. for free. Please don't feel at all obligated but if you don't mind and have a facebook account, you can vote here.

This is my Facebook Fitness Page and feel free to like it too! The first wall post is for the contest.


You can vote once every day, until March 17. So only ten more days. We only have to be in the top 50 to get to the judging round, and currently we're #20! Woohoo! Again, please don't feel obligated to vote at all. I'm hoping we have enough votes now to remain in the top 50 for the next 10 days. I'm just hoping that if we were to win, and save around $500 we could pay for the live stream and that would just be AWESOME!

Plus this pic is such a good representation of our journey. In this pic I finally felt small enough that JD could pick me up without me worrying about hurting him. Our lives have revolved around football and our school and heck I'm BOBCATGIRL76! Haha.




Basically, I just wanted you all to know how much you mean to me. I will never be able to thank you all for all your positive support. Each time one of you tells me I'm an inspiration or I give you hope, you just give me all the drive to keep going on this journey.

Wow, I'm a mushy ranter today. This is what you do to me, Sparkfriends.

I love you.

    Darn, I read this too late to vote. I hope you win! You are so deserving of this. And I DO want to come to your wedding! So I hope you can figure out how to post it to YouTube.

    awww I didn't see this in time to vote but I hope you win! I'm not really techno-nerdy geek enough to know exactly how that all is done, but the link to YouTube would work too. But hey, if you want to elope, that's good with me too! It's your wedding! I love that you want to invite all of us, but there's no reason to make yourself crazier trying to wrangle all that into place as well!

    If you have a really good computer, with a fast internet speed, and a good quality video camera, you could connect up with U-Stream and broadcast there. You could supply a link on your spark page to the U-Stream channel, and people could pop in now and then and watch everything. :D

    Sp is a fantastic site that has given many of us the same feelings of inspiration and motivation as well as some very true friendships. There are so many supportive people and having a site to share that support means the world. Keep up you great attitude and hard work. And hang on to all the inspiration going to you and keep it going to all those that have been supporting you.
