It's Been Almost a Year! - NO, it's now been two years!

Update: I have now been participating in SP for two years. Looking back at last year (see 2nd paragraph), I am sorry to say I have fallen down on the job. However, I have also returned because I know my SP friends will encourage me instead of beat me up! I have joined SparkCoach because I know I need that accountability. I have gained most of my weight loss back, but not all of it, for that I am grateful. One day at a time will get me back on track, and I know with the help of so many ...

One day at a time will get me back on track, and I know with the help of so many friends I will take the weight off!
It was a real shock to realize I have been participating in SparkPeople for almost a year. As I reviewed what I've been doing, I recognized that I do need a renewal in my commitment. I have set new goals, listed my plan to acheive the goals, and committed to myself and my Lord that I will stay accountable to doing what I have listed. While I had hoped to lose 52 lbs and did not succeed, I have decided I am still successful because I lost 27 lbs, did not gain weight, and did start taking baby steps on exercise and walking which I had never done. So I may not be one of the ones who move rapidly through this, but I am still happy with me because I am keeping on instead of giving up:)

I want to thank you so much for your words of encouragement! It gave my heart COMPLETE JOY to know that a person who doesn't know me would reach out to show kindness! The seeds of kindness you have planted will sprout and pay it forward! THANK YOU!!

Thanks for your comments about my half marathons! They were a lot of fun, one with my DD, two with my son, and two on my own. I don't go very fast but I can go for a long time!!!
Have a great BLC 26!
