Hi!!

Thank you, ever so much for your comments you guys made about my post! It is very nice to know I made a positive difference in your lives. I had no idea.my personal experience would have such a strong impact on you! I just wrote a little bit and it went so far! I bet all of us have stories that would touch other members hearts and souls. I am glad I decided to share.

Just a thought to all of you and the leaders. I wonder if it would be productive to have a sticky on the 5% Team Page and or on each of our assigned team forums. It would serve as a designated place to write about our personal experiences. There might be a good turnout. It may not only serve as a special way to support other members, but be a way for us to help ourselves. It may also be a good way we develop friendships and bond with each other.

Writing has helped me in so many ways. It has cleansed me, helped me to release feelings that have cause me to have negative feelings towards others including myself. It has also helped me to become aware of things inside me I was never knew. Writing, for me, is one of my personal therapies.

Guess what? One of the Firecracker leaders asked me to post what I (scroll down) wrote in my blog. Me? Lol. . I truly feel honored! This is, indeed a humbling experience, in a good way, of course emoticon

Just a friendly reminder:
Remember to post your weight and all your stats for the week. The week is coming to a close

Have a wonderful rest of your “time zone”. Lol

Here is my special wish for you all today,

Reach out to God, or anyone or anything that will bring you peace, joy and hope. What more can anyone ask for?

Elona what a wonderfully sweet message. Thank you for coming to this teams page and posting those encouraging words!
I also want to mention how encouraging and supportive the Shooting Stars have been! The Spark Buddy I got matched with is totally awesome! MawMaw, here's to you!
I have found more people reaching out since I joined this challenge than I have in all the years I have been on Spark. Not that Spark didn't help me in so many ways along the way. But have that personal touch has been invaluable to me! emoticon

Hi gang!

I do hope I am allowed to post here. If not, I will erase it and post it in another thread. Please advise :)

I am SUPER impressed with the Firecrackers. I've never been on a winning team. I feel honored! Thank you all for your support. I will continue to try to inspire and motivate you guys, best I can
emoticon emoticon

To all the other great teams that came in second, third. AMAZING JOB! emoticon I congratulate you guys for working so hard not just for yourself, but for your team :)

To the rest of the gang. A big heartfelt and confident "Yay!". Everyone is doing their best. That's what counts! With a positive attitude and hard work you can go up the line, too! But no, matter, what is really important is you tried and did your best! I am proud of you emoticon emoticon

I remember my first and second time on the 5% challenges. I was far from educated about food, plans, exercise and a positive attitude. What struck me when I did not lose a pound and saw everyone else do everything different from me and did lose, was I needed to not look at myself, but follow in the footsteps of the members that had a handle on how to Spark! It was like being in a foreign country to me. Lol. Everyone was dancing and I was just jumping up and down going nowhere! Lol. I asked myself, what are they doing to make it happen. I had a hard time believing exercising, tracking, pre-planning meals, trying out meal plans and finding one that fit me was what they were doing that created their success. It didn;t seem possible. It seemed to simple. Hard to implement, but simple in theory, for sure. Little by little I adopted some of the lifestyles the 5 % members had, floundered around for quite a while. Failing and failing lead me to finding what worked for me. I am so grateful for those disappointing and depressing days watching the members chat about what exercise they did, what food they ate, how the tracked and so on. There's nothing like a good mentor. Nothing better. I;m just a few pounds from maintenance (about 7 lbs and itching for my maintenance party. Lol. I know this is not the end, but the beginning of hard work to find a lifestyle that keeps me going for the rest of my life. Of course I will change and so will the lifestyle, but I will learn to adjust and keep on getting healthier and healthier. Onwards and upwards! LOLOL.

Good luck, many (((hugs))) and prayers to you all!
