1st Year Anniversary
Wednesday, May 07, 2008
Today marks the 1st year anniversary of my journey to a healthier lifestyle. As they say "You have come a long way, baby". I may have lost the weight and reached my goal, but I have gained so much by being here on SparkPeople.
I have found no strangers here at SparkPeople, just friends I have never met, friends that continue to be there as a family and continue be there emotionally to help support, motivate and just have a good laugh.
I found that a simple kind word can help people to continue with their personal goals and not give up.
I have found drinking the minimum 8 glasses of water will help you keep the tissue industry alive and helps gets me to walk away from my desk for a much needed break.
I have found out that I can complete a 10K run, even though I turned 50 last December and my time was decent for a first time participant.
I have found that I am not getting older, I am getting better.
I have found endless opportunities to continue to live a healthier lifestyle. I hope you have too.
