Dang y'all 7 years on Sparkpeople!
Tuesday, January 19, 2016
I just realized I celebrated 7 years on Sparkpeople! I would have never thought that joining this website while I was supposed to be working in the office would have turned into a place I still come back to 7 years later.
I am proud of my dedication to the site. However, I'm not sure I'm better off when I reflect back on 7 years ago.
I probably weighed about 230. I weigh 256 right now.
I had a job as a grad assistant. I have no job now. LOL.
I got married in 2009. Still married. Still love my husband. LOL.
I have a baby. He is 4 now.
I was 28. I am now 35 but don't tell anyone. LOL.
I have more health problems than I did then.
I have some wonderful friends here. That's why I keep coming back. Carly and Morticia.
I'm still trying. I'm still learning.
I've earned 23,000 Spark Points in 7 years!???? I have work to do. LOL.
I lost 55 pounds in 2010. I gained 86 pounds between 2012 and 2014.
I've never been voted a Spark Motivator. But why would I if I can't keep my weight off?
I was around when Spark had a huge number of popular motivators such as Treble, Mack, Yoovie and a few other young ladies trying to get their footing in life while trying to get healthy. I actually found some of them in other social media locations such as Myfitnesspal and Instagram. I'm friends with Karvy on Facebook (aka chunkyrunner) Our babies are close in age.
What happened to Coach Nicole??
I was looking at old photos that some of these ladies took with their phones before the Iphone became big. Even technology has come a long way in 7 years.
I'm pretty sure Carly and Morticia and I have known each other for the entire time I've been on Spark right?? LOL. I know Morticia has been a member longer than me. We share an interest in a lower carb lifestyle. I think we all struggle with bread pangs although I know they are probably doing better than me. LOL.
I've blogged a lot.
I still love it when people blog with pics especially food pics but I'm too lazy to do it myself. I should do it more.
Well here is to 7 more. I still feel like I have a lot to do and catch up and more Sparkpoints to earn. I love this site. Its a shame to see people come and go. I still keep coming back.
