We all joined over a year ago; how has your life changed and what can you tell us now about yourself? How have you changed from who you were (not necessarily because of SparkPeople or weight/exercise-related activities or issues, that's discussed in our one-year thread below. How have you changed as a total person that we should know about. Pretend you were just joining SparkPeople today; what would you tell us about yourself? Would it be different from what you wrote a year+ ago?
Now to break that rule :-) I am focused on health now in a more knowledgeable way than I was a year+ ago because of SparkPeople. I have more, great, online friends and spend most of my day online (I'm retired) as a result.
So, I've changed in that I spend more time online, I spend less money (on books :-) and am no longer focused on school (I dropped out of graduate school just before I joined SparkPeople, was looking for the "next" thing as I'd been going to school for 8 years) or feeling as "helpless" about my health issues.
There is no pleasure worth forgoing just for an extra three years in the geriatric ward. ~John Mortimer
