Yesterday I went out and had Thai. I, also, had a 1 1/2 hour workout with lifting. It's a victory that I maintained and didn't gain weight! emoticon

Exactly John. There isn't a person here that hasn't completely changed their life from what it was before. But with great change comes great challenge, and sometimes we are left without the defense mechanisms that we relied so heavily upon in the past. So what's a person to do but make friends that know the same struggles and spend the time that it takes to solidify those new brain strings and built new systems of support without the old, bad habits that we are used to and that are still such siren songs.

You are absolutely right about the accomplishments. In my time here at SP, I've gone from couch potato to marathon runner, from weekend slug to "how is my running calendar already booked into May 2013?!"

Hey Team!

We all know why we're here. To put it in perspective, here's what we've managed to accomplish here on Spark:

- We've lost PILES of weight.
- We've completed MAJOR personal challenges.
- We've MOTIVATED countless people with our stories.
- We've CHANGED OUR LIVES for the better.
- We've run marathons, climbed mountains, started new careers, and achieved huge amounts of success with our new-found selves.

And most importantly...WE'RE STILL HERE!!! And we're still kicking butt.

But here's the thing that a lot of us know when we're in this for the long haul: When the honeymoon ends, so does a lot of the usual "Ra Ra Go Team! WooHoo!" support from the Spark masses. And just because THAT goes away, doesn't mean we don't still need it.

So I'm looking to start a little "Club of Elites" here whose main challenge is going to be checking in and giving that daily, weekly, monthly support to the members of this team who still need it. Me included.

Some of us are still working on achieving our initial goals. Some of us are taking on new and exciting challenges. And some of us are where we want to be, but need to stay active to stay in that happy place - and sometimes that's the hardest place to get that support!

So I'm challenging you all. I'm challenging you to keep being awesome. And to stay as active as possible in this smaller community of people who are still doing it. Day after day.

Spark Love!

Jenn
