HOW I'VE EMBRACED THE SPARK!
Tuesday, October 06, 2009
I started slowly with spark people. I was one of those who thought, well I'll follow the "rules" and I can certainly do it on my own. I didn't join a team for a while. Then I formed my own team.
After that I branched out and joined a couple of teams...left them, in search of more compatible to my age group, an finally found a couple of teams I have stuck with through this wonderful journey.
In almost two years I've not lost a huge amount of weight (approximately 15lbs), however I've gained many friends that I wouldn't trade for the world. I've gained the certainty that I WILL reach my goal and I gained the knowledge that going it alone is silly. I can...but how much more fun it is to get healthy with Sparkpeople.com and my new-found fellow SPARKLERS!! I lead the Volunteeers Who Care TEAM and just love the Anyone Over 70 Team for their caring support.!
