I ran into an old friend in the grocery store last week. We had both lost a significant amount of weight since we last saw each other, and we complimented each other on our successes. She told me she was using SparkPeople, and I'm so glad I checked it out!
I have had family and friend support through my journey, but since none of them were going through a weight-loss process, I had no one to share my thoughts, feelings, frustrations, etc. with. I now feel that I have that kind of community behind me.
Although I had lost almost 60 pounds since October 2012, I still have a goal of losing about 45 more before the end of June 2013. This past week I lost 4.8 pounds (I had a small gain the week before), so I am very encouraged.
I am looking forward to meeting some new friends, sharing my experiences, and benefitting from all of the knowledge out there in SparkPeople!
