I just returned to SP after 3 years. I love the group-goal mindset: everyone here is working for the same thing, a healthy life. I love the food and fitness trackers, and communtity forums, and all the on-point articles. Spending time on SP makes me feel like I'm not alone in this health journey!

I love the positivity and such universal wisdom SP members impart in their posts. I also like to spend time within the platform to build a mindset for the day to sustain momentum in my personal goals. I turn to SP now in favor of the most popular social media platforms. SP is the overall healthier choice!

OUR WEATHER HAS BEEN WEIRD TO SAY THE LEAST, TOO! down to 40 emoticon or less at night & highs of 78 to 80! emoticon Too cold to swim, though, REALLY miss it! Last week was VERY cold. My plants & palm trees haven't a clue what to do. We can only water 1 day a week. So I've been hand watering here & there! My Eyes, great again! We've been working on our wills & DH trust. Strange to do & think about, but I don't want others to have to deal with all these things! THX! Love you all! emoticon emoticon

I have lost 50# over the past two years. What motivates me to check in everyday is that I don't want to gain the weight back. I need accountability. Reading the inspirational and motivational blogs/articles helps keep me on track. I don't ever want to go back there. I am also competitive (with myself mostly) and love streaking!

emoticon for you! Today is my 2,787 days of sparking, EVERYDAY!

11-2-19 Our 44th anniversary, emoticon yesterday was SO special. We had dinner on top of the world. It was perfect, (except I over ate) Lot's of walking & sight seeing. DH gave me 44 gas car fill ups. I gave him a detailed car cleaning for his car. It came out beautifully! We REALLY take good care of our cars, AND each other. We are still on our Honeymoon. Met in High school. Yes, we have our ups & downs, but try really hard at keeping our romance alive. Lot's of work, but worth it!

First of all, I need to track my food and exercise to keep my in line! If I don't pay good attention, I could easily go overboard. Secondly, and it's a little silly I think, but I really enjoy getting points! They are fun and make the whole process enjoyable, like a game.

What keeps me coming back is the positive attitude that I find here. I love being part of a community where we are all facing that same big challenge. We have good days and bad days but we just keep trying.

I enjoy the blogs - I love people's honesty in the stop-start process of developing a healthy lifestyle. The successful stories are an inspiration and the stories about challenges, problems and setbacks help me to keep going by reminding me that I'm not the only one doing this in a 'three steps forward, one step back' kind of way!

I like the articles about nutrition, exercise and motivation. They are full of useful information which help me tweak my lifestyle so that I can constantly improve it.

Mostly though, it's the friends I've made. I love chatting and swapping ideas with people who are interested in the same things as me. It's great fun!

I'm motivated to check mainly by the points but in the process I get inspired by all the success stories and valuable information that spark makes available.

I have been with Spark People since 2012. At first I thought it was a waste of time but I continued because my weight had skyrocketed due to the medications that I had to take because of an accident that I had in 2011. I did keep with it because Sparking gave me the closest thing to a schedule to keep and made me feel good and when I started to lose some of the weight I had gained, Sparking became my buddy, my friend and my life changed. Still love the stability and will continue. Don't let anything take your Sparkle and have a nice day. The Sparkyflower AKA Carole B

Friends I am meeting AND NOT breaking my SP streak of 2,758 days!

About me today;
emoticon 10-4-19 I get another emoticon in my goal book for staying between 80-100% a day. Includes exercise, eating, & taking care of me; mentally; emotionally & spiritually. It's been a emoticon week! down 5# since I have 're-focused' on my goals, starting 9-17-19! emoticon Yesterday was a HUGE emoticon day, I had some stress about our dog, LUCY's health from the vet emoticon she's OK, but surly getting older. (She's 15 in November)A new medication for her. DH wanted Burger King on our way home & I DIDN'T GET ANYTHING!!!! I was thinking of an IMPOSSIBLE burger, but can't find the ingredients & won't eat if I don't know, came home & eat my homemade veggie chicken soup & "naked" brand Popcorn. I am down another # today. I always KNOW when I am doing GREAT, because I am excited to weigh in (on Fridays & tell my SP friends) emoticon to EACH of you for supporting me, emoticon Couldn't do it without you!!!! emoticon I'm volunteering, performing my marionette show, tomorrow at Nature Preserve, adding autumn marionettes. Sure to be a blast! emoticon

(THX 2B for photo!)

Also I am hoping by surrounding myself with people and information about losing weight and reaching goals I will work a little harder on my journey.

Well for the most part it is a way of keeping myself accountable. I have been struggling a bit with checking in on SP lately due to circumstances in my life but I am really really trying to stay focused on ME. I need to make sure I take care of ME.

Life would be much more upbeat if there was just background music no matter when or where you were doing things.

It would also be more fun if people didn't look at you funny when you danced to the music down the sidewalk ha ha~
