The Spark-A-Versary That Matters Most To Me

Thursday, March 08, 2012

My official One Year Spark-A-Versary was on the 2nd of March, commemorating the day that I created a username - that honestly doesn't mean very much to me (especially since I changed my username in that year) - because in those first few days, I was so overwhelmed with information and getting my bearings and tracking food that I overlooked a very important email

The one that had the link to the Spark Membership/Pledge card

I didn't find that until March 8th

I printed it on photo paper in a 2x3 size so that it looked just like an official membership card and I signed it and dated it and put it on my bulletin board where I see it every day

Today I reprinted and resigned the card and put it up next to the original

I think I'm going to recommit every year on March 8th - the Spark-A-Versary of my heart - the one where I feel I really committed to me

If you haven't done one because you didn't know it existed, here is a link that should take you to your personal membership/pledge card

I will be honest, there were a few days in the past year where that card was the only thing that kept me going

Spark On!

    I had forgotten about that little membership card. I'm not sure where mine is or if I still have it after almost 5 years on SP, but I do remember that I took the commitment seriously. I like your plan to renew that commitment every year and will think of some way to celebrate when the day arrives next month!

    emoticon Congratulations on your 1 year Sparkversary! What a great idea to print out your pledge card. I didn't even realize you could do that.

    I'm so glad I've gotten to know you and we are Sparkfriends! emoticon

    Awesome!!! I have one from years ago that turns up whenever I go through papers... I need a new one!!! The old one reminds me how I did it for a while and then gave up. That's definitely not motivating!!! If I do it at the proper card size, like you did, and then maybe *gasp* laminate it, then it will no longer remind me of the old one. :)

    Happy Pledge Card Day!!
    I have my hanging in my home office and look at it a lot.
    Sometimes i'm sad, cause it is from 2008 and i'm still at this battle, but then i remember, it's a lifestyle not a diet - so I need to remeber enjoy the journey and the people i get to meet along the way! Thanks for a great blog!
