Today is my birthday, and let me tell you if not for the tools and motivation I have found on SP this past year; today would not feel like the victory it is!
Today, I turn 40! This morning I ran 3 miles in 35 minutes. There's something I couldn't do last year let alone when I was 20. My blood pressure still reads perfect after 7 months of no medication. My knees no longer hurt at the end of the day. I could go on....
The point to all of this... SparkPeople gave me the motivation to do what I've been needing to do my whole life... Take control of my health.
Today food is more a fuel than a desire for me (still splurge on occasion and still have guilty pleasures, but it's all in moderation). Exercise is a way of life that I enjoy! Most importantly, I feel empowered!!
Thank you SparkPeople! Looking forward to my 2nd year of Sparking!
