Happy Sparkaversary To Me!

Sunday, April 01, 2012

emoticon I joined Spark People 5 years ago today. I loved it then. I love it now.

However, I never got very far in the program. I kept having other things get in the way, medically, to keep me from exercising or even keeping me offline.

But when I could sign in, I did check in to some of my communities, especially the Thich Nhat Hanh and the Thanksgiving Community Teams. I also kept in touch with a few by email, when I could, but this past two years I lost touch with pretty much everyone.

I am so very glad to be back and so very thankful for the teams and the wonderful people that have welcomed me back, even though I am basically starting over as a beginner, and had to "reset to start" all of my tracking.

Spark People is only as good as it's members, and that is what makes Spark People so very great. The support, the humor, a kind word here, a suggestion there, some commisseration and some definite motivation! It's all you guys. The ones who were here five years ago and stuck it out, and the new wonderful people that I've met since coming back this year. Thanks to all of you. It's a slow start, and I falter and fall down, often literally, but I'm on my way.

Thank you, Spark Friends. You guys are the best and brightest of all!

    Happy 5th Sparkversary Dear Sue. I am so glad you came back as I wouldn't have a had a supportive and caring friend like you. I am so glad you're part of our Team and love it when you chat. I'm looking forward to another great year and hoping we both have success at getting some pounds off. I truly admire your determination and willpower as it's hard enough when one feels well but I know you're still dealing with some health issues now. Take care and God Bless.

    Love,

    Jill

    Happy Sparkversary, Sue! emoticon

    The only way to fail is to give up. You haven't given up. So that makes you a success in my book! Glad to have your more active presence here. One day at a time, one decision at a time, doing what you can, when you can... that's Sparkling!
