One Year

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

Wow! Today I have been on Spark People for one year. I took time off and haven't been as faithful to my program as I should have been, but I didn't regain weight. That in and of itself feels pretty good. Not as good as it felt to lose the first 45 pounds but good none the less. I now need to get back to really working my program, I sound like a broken record because I keep saying that, yet I seem to only make half hearted effort to get to it. I wish I could find some new articles, polls etc. most of them that come up I have already read and I can't even use them to rack up Spark points. I need new motivation! A double portion please!
I reflect back on the day my friend told me about Spark people and I joined, I have come along way since then. Yes I would have been much closer to my goals if I had stayed with it better, but I am closer to my goals than I was 365 days ago. I am thankful for the dance. Mostly I am thankful for my Marcie who has stayed with the program too. Together we will get there, and we will kick butt along the way! Thanks to everyone and all of the support along the way. I look forward to the part of the journey. emoticon emoticon

    Changing your lifestyle is hard! Even if you stick with the program, you have bad days. If the weight stayed off, some of the habits must have stuck!

    Congratulations on completing your first year with Spark!

    I completely agree with you about the motivation you can get from reading articles. I'm finding it more and more difficult to find new ones myself! I find them useful in that when I know better, I do better. Surely we haven't learned all we need to yet.

    Still, we will both dig deep and learn to keep the spark alive. We can live a healthy life. We can do it, and we will!
