Going back to my first Spark Post

Sunday, March 06, 2011

For some reason I went back to my first posts on my spark page, I think there are 5 of them there from me, guess I did not have sparkfriends back then to post on my page, it was rather emotional when I read how excited I was to have found this program, and how I lost 16 pounds then 20 pound then 40 pounds and well you get the idea...LaRain was the first person to welcome me to a team, a boot camp team...I don't really remember the team but I do remember LaRain, she inspired me to get a move on.. then I was asked to join another team where I meet Karon, I was floored to see this 530 pound women who lost over 150 pounds then and she told me about WALK AWAY THE POUNDS.......she is on my facebook but I'm not sure if she still gets on SP...I don't think LaRain does either.....I miss these wonderful women and so many more too...I'm very thankful that Sock is still here with us, she was one who helped me way back saddens me how many supportive people have come and gone from my spark also amazes me that I'm still here almost 5 years now...April 26 will be 5 years I joined SparkPeople ( I use May 1st as my anniversary date).....
No matter how low or down I get about my weight, my body and my life I can't deny that I have come a long way still amazes me every day when I can slip this body in to size 8 or 10 jeans, small tops and small jackets......I still struggle with body image, I still struggle with worry about gaining the weight back..I even dream about it.......but I have to keep doing my best every day, learn something new every day...find ways of coping that don't include food....give help and motivation each day to new people who are just starting to get the hang of this healthy life style...I feel it's my job to give back to people for all that has been given to me along the way.....there are hundreds of wonderful people both men and women who have touched me in personal ways that I'll never be able to thank them all, so I will try in some small way to pay forward what was given to me.....I have been blessed by all of you

Have a healthy week and lets all do our best .....

    Hi Kitt, I might have come and gone and come back again, but there are very few days that I don't think about you, your courage, your journey and your kindness to me. I am never giving up, just taking the longer journey. Thanks for inspiring me! - Denice emoticon

    You are wonderful and I'm so grateful YOU are here! It's hard to see others move on though I can imagine at some point life sort of takes over...that has happened to a few of my early 'friends' and I might hear from them once in awhile but not often. I just recently went back and re-read some of my early blogs, too...and a couple of the people who responded back then are still rooting me on now...don't you just love that? emoticon

    People come and go in our lives. But they come and go when we need them to be there.

    I think we are all here in each others lives because we need to be.

    Thank you for being here!

    Awww, what a nice blog. Trips down memory lanes are awesome, aren't they? You have done a great job in helping people as they cross your path. You have been a big help to me, Kitt, and I thank you for that!

    Big Hugs!

    You helped me in a lot of ways, Kitt, and you are the main reason I made it back here after dropping off in 2006! Keeping tabs on your progress from our early "dance partner" days kept me plugged in here and gave me hope. I cannot thank you enough for that!

    Here's hoping that, with time, your mental images will catch up to the "new" you and you will spend more time enjoying life and less time worrying about what might happen. Life is too short to spend so much of it worrying. Get on with enjoying it and make the most of the time we have...yeppers!
