I have learned that being true to myself is essential.

I have learned that I am not invincible and that I too will have funks.

I have learned that fitness is a critical part of this journey and diet alone will not work. There has to be a balance.

I have learned that I have stronger woman in me!

I have learned that there is so much more to learn!

I KNOW that I am so proud of all of you, including myself for making it this far and without this team, Sparkpeople, faith, family and friends, I would be back to where I was a short time ago.

I agree with you Hillprincess. I learned that this website and this team are important motivators that are helping me stay on track. I don't think that I could have lasted as long as I had without something. I was going to join weight watchers until I found this team. Not only did I save on money because I don't have to pay any dues I am saving money because I am not purchasing the junk food like I would have from not being able to stick to a weight loss plan. Does this make sense? Anyway, I am so happy to have joined this team. This is my favorite team! I am happy to have made friends with all of you!

Honestly, I've learned I don't do well with longterm and involved challenges. Maybe I'm a rare one in that aspect but I find I concentrate so much on trying to accomplish the "challenge" I let go of the basics. It's one of the reasons I've stopped doing the weekly challenges...they're too distracting for me. I've discovered I function better when I challenge myself to work on something related to my personal journey. It's helped a lot recently in getting myself focused back on the basics.

What have you learned that has impacted you the most?


I would have to say that taking this journey with a buddy is what has impacted me the most.

I have tried several other times to loss weight, several of those times my brother has offered me a reward if I was successful. But even that wasn't enough to keep me going for long.

This team is my buddy in this journey.

I was able to log on very little last week. As a result I learned how important a buddy is to my success. Without all of you my journey was very lonely. I found I didn't have much enthusiasm for staying on track.

So I say thank you to all of you for your encouragement and support on my journey. Thanks for being my health buddy!
