Great job, Kelly! I've been in a very similar situation and I know just how hard that decision to leave is, good for you!!

For me my biggest accomplishment of 2012 was to finally get my head to a place where I could approach a healthy lifestyle and lose weight in a safe and healthy way. After decades of unhealthy ways of eating and dieting and abusing my body horribly, "The Spark" just helped put everything in perspective and helped to get me started on this most amazing and beautiful journey that started out as a weight loss journey and has grown into so much more.

After spending most of the year working with HR to try to improve the toxic atmosphere in my department, it became clear that management wasn't going to admit anything was wrong much less do anything about our work environment. So, I made the choice to quit for the sake of my health and sanity. I feel like that was a major victory because I faced the situation and did what I could to help myself and my coworkers.

Before things got so bad, I lost 25 pounds. I managed to keep it off through that stressful time. Now I can't wait to see what I can accomplish this year!

I've maintained my weight and a healthy, balanced lifestyle for another year. I've also changed quite a bit on the inside, and I'm excited about my transformation overall, inside and out.

I'm at peace!

I'm proudest of the volunteer work that I shed... I was being a doormat for others and was getting sick and exhausted and it's been wonderful to shed some duties and to have the time to eat healthier meals, etc. I'm also proud that I tweaked my diet a bit (without suffering) and have some easy meals that are healthier... and I'm proud that I'm running again... Running really makes me happy. I've lost a few pounds and I'm going to lose more in the new year.

Wow guys you have had some amazing victories this year. I myself haven't stayed on track, and had gains. But I never left Spark. Each day I woke knowing this could be the day I got it all right. You know what? I did. I'm here and i'm leaving this year 2012 on a slight loss.

I'm thinking my biggest victory is the fact that I didn't get sick in any way - I didn't get injured in any way - I didn't have any drama in my life - overall it was a wonderful year.
