First Blog

Sunday, February 10, 2013

It has been about five weeks since I joined Spark People and began my journey to lose weight and to find the path to a healthy and active life style. I have been pleasantly surprised and happy with my choice to become active at this site. I have just slowly been acclimating myself to the site and I have been so impressed with the loving support that I have watched take place on the message boards and in the blogs I have read. I have been awed at the hard work and accomplishments of so many people and for the first time have been able to imagine that I could be one of those people who could succeed. I read today "The Three P's of Failure" and saw myself so clearly there, but also found the tools for learning and changing my behavior and understand that there is hope to integrate "The Three S's of Success." I am hopeful and excited to step out and "meet" each one of you through your messages and blogs and success and challenges. I am learning from all of you, small steps, be gentle with mistakes and take one day at a time. Thank you to all of you who share your journey to help us who are with you. emoticon

    Welcome to blogging in the Sparkpeople community! Please don't think it's only those who have been here long and dropped a ton of weight who are the encouragers. Those "longtimers" can be just as encouraged as they read about what's going on in your life... the progress, stumbles and victories. We'll cheer each other on and all get to our goals eventually.

    Glad to have you here!

    Congrats on your first blog!!!! I too find those that have worked so hard and lost so much is amazing. Inspiring actually. I don't know how much you have to lose, but I can tell you will get there. Then you'll be an inspiring story.
