Happy Sparkaversary To Me!
Sunday, April 01, 2012
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!
