Today, I made my page public again and it couldn't come on better day.


When I joined SparkPeople back in December 2011, I was hoping that somehow, this time it would be different. That all my failed attempts and weight loss were out of my system, and I'd somehow manage to really get it this time.

And I did.

But not without the help of thousands of SparkFriends and readers who made comments on my pictures and blogs, encouraging me when I was down, and giving me suggestions when I had questions.

Through SparkPeople, I found articles about becoming a runner. I also found SparkFriends that suggested Couch 2 5k. Other SparkFriends sent me a link on how to train for a half marathon.

And then I ran a half-marathon.

So many people celebrated with me when I reached One-derland. And so many congratulated me every time I had a non-scale victory or dropped a pant size.

And I blog about it all the time, but the support I get from my SparkFriends is what keeps me going. Every time I hit a bump in the road on this journey I'm on, I know that I can come here, share what's going on, and find support and that's what SparkPeople is really about.

Whether you're new to the site, or have been here for years, the site and the people on this site are constantly finding ways to make this whole losing weight and getting healthy thing a little bit easier.

I am so thankful for SparkPeople and how it's improved and changed my life.

Now, I'm off to training for my new job. J.D. and I both start September 8th and are hoping to hear back today on a house for rent we put in an application for. If we don't get it, we will just have to keep looking, but I think this house is meant for us, and I hope that we get it.

Thanks for reading, Sparkfriends. And for putting up with my ramblings for 1,000 days.

I love this site, and am so grateful that you all are a part of my life.
