THANK YOU !!!!

Thank you Spark People for providing this wonderful weight loss, nutritional, fitness , and informative site.
I was so fortunate to stumble across the article on Spark back on 5/17/2010, and after reading about the success of women featured I signed up .
That was one of the best things I have ever done.
The next best thing was to use all that Spark had to offer and apply it to my weight loss, fitness journey.
The success I have had is beyond my expectations.
But without the constant support of the wonderful Spark friends and members I have encounter along way, the enjoyment of success would not be as meaningful.
From the day I signed up and joined some teams, I have encountered women and men that were so sincere, , and helpful in so many ways.
We live in a virtual world, far different than the one I grew up in. Many of the women and men I have met here on Spark, I regard as true friends. Would love to met someday and I am sure could start right off in a conversation like we have known each other for ages.
The support and camaraderie that one experiences here at Spark is amazing.
Perhaps it is the struggle we share in our battle of the weight. And the emotional issues that many of us have. There are so may similarly in many of our lives. What ever joins us together, I have found it a comfort and a much needed aspect in my life.
I was very surprised to read an e mail from a Spark friends congratulating me on having a Popular Blog. I read a few more e mails. I wondered if they were talking about my "Gooooaall" blog. So I checked and sure enough it was.
Thank you dear friends and Spark members for that honor.
That blog was very special for me. To reach my intended goal was a milestone
in my struggle to become healthy and fit.
Of course you could have given me the honor for the "Shortest Blog" I have ever written. "Smile"!!
Seriously, I can't thank you enough for all the support and encouragement you keep giving me. You are all the greatest.
I kept my ticker on goal of 145 for a week. It was nice to see that I had reached it.
But I recently added 10 lbs to the ticker , making a new goal of 135 lbs..
I had already lost another pound and didn't know here to record it.
Just having a new number to work toward will keep me focused . I love challenges, so my goal to reach 135 by my birthday on 12/19/2011 is very do=able.
I have increased my calories and am still losing weight. I think all the exercises I do has something to do with it.
My body will tell me when it's time to stop losing .
Today in Aqua aerobics I had another friend tell me she signed up on Spark.
So far that makes six women from my gym who I have encouraged to give Spark a try. Happy about that. We have to give back when ever we can.
Thought for today." My life can always be enriched by the gift of another's attention, and I can pass along that gift."
Take care, stay strong, believe in yourself.
Peace and Love,
