Popular Blog Trophy?! Wow!

Tuesday, July 08, 2014

WOW! Thank you everyone! I have been on SP since 2006 and as far as I can remember, I have never, ever, had a Popular Blog Post! I feel so totally honored. The love and support I've gotten from my SP family has gotten me through some tough times, and I am really grateful for this site.

Why do I write blogs on SP? I think for me it's like a place to vent where people can relate to my struggles. Out there in the real world, it's hard to find this exact mix of people where we're working toward a weight loss goal, a fitness goal, a life empowerment goal, or all of these together. I mean, I suppose people out there living their lives are doing some of those things, but here at SP we are getting it done. And I'm not the only person who has weighed 300 lbs more than once.

Seriously, can you think of a place where there is a bunch of people willing to say they have over 100 lbs to lose - or have already lost over 100 lbs?! In the "real world" that's like unheard of. But here, we get each other.

I'm here for you - thanks for being here for me.

    But look at you now!! You are living the world of "I CAN DO IT!!" Congrats on all you have accomplished!! (and BTW, you probably wouldn't have been willing to be out in that heat at 300 pounds!!) ;~}
