Bumps in the road. Life is filled with them. I can't control the bumps but I can control how I react to them. I was four-weeks in to my journey and I lost my spark while my pup was sick and was still moping around now that he's gone. I was kind of Logging, kind of reading articles, kind of looking at challenges and kind of trying so I can't be kind of surprised of the result on the scale. Today, something hit me while looking through the Spark community feed. Spark is filled with real people. People like me. Filled with people who are not perfect, not airbrushed, not flaunting how a pill did this or a drink did that. Just real people. Doing real things to make their life healthier. Some have amazing results and I found myself smiling at before and after pictures. Some have bumps and find the way back on the right path and I found myself getting re-motivated. I have 80lbs to lose and the only one that is ultimately going to get me to my goal is me....well, with a little help from my spark friends. So thank you Spark friends - you don't even know how much you did to help me today.

    SP has saved me! I have been sparking over 10 years. I started a team about Evening Eating which is a habit I can't seem to stop. It has taken years but I have lost some weight. I keep hoping to lose more. If I could reduce my evening and night time eating, I think my weight would go down some more. I won't give up. That is too dangerous for me. I'd be gaining again. I wrote some things on one of your photos. I love to see photos of my spark friends! emoticon chris
