A Gift I will not Exchange..

Monday, December 27, 2010

Today I am going over my List of things I need to change and want to achieve in 2011. and sometimes I feel overwhelmed by the teams and challenges and goals and streaks and huddles and message boards, and emails and blogs. and not because I don't like them but because I want to read them all. I absolutely still love sparkpeople as much as I did when I started on sept 5th,2010. and I have to agree with some of you that have stated it takes up alot of time on the computer to answer emails,and huddle and send well wishes and read articles. but now I have been doing this for over 3 months and I have lost 20 POUNDS.and now I think I'm addicted. I love reading that someone reached a goal,and someone else needs motivated,and someone won a award. and I have messages from a spark friend and someone sent me a spark goodie and some one else laughed at my blog and that I inspired them and there are encouraging words on every page. if I wasn't busy on this computer I would be in the kitchen filling my face. I just want you to know you have saved my life, no longer on cholesterol medication, no longer borderline diabetic. you have given me something to look forward to not just everyday, but every hour. I am never alone on this journey to better health, A better me. Each and everyone of you have been a GIFT, and it is a GIFT I will never exchange. I may have to make some changes in my life for 2011 but it will not be sparkpeople.
Thank You for your time and all your kind encouraging words,have a successful 2011..

    emoticon emoticon Way to go Molly...sounds like this month has been a tough one with being sick and the normal challenges of Thanksgiving and Christmas. You are doing great! You have to look at the little successes and reach for bigger ones. I know how hard it is and I know we can do it!!!!!

    I totally agree with you this is one gift not on the exchange list. I started in October and have lost 10 pounds, but I have also managed to gain 4 pounds back. Why because I stopped logging and getting in my steps. I realize I need both to be successful and to keep me in line.

    Its a great gift that should be shared.

    It really does take a huge chunk of time if you read blogs, huddle with your teams, read articles and so on and so on, but I like the blogs too and doing all this keeps me motivated, it's a lot more entertaining then TV and if I'm here, I'm not eating LOL
    I regained my initial weight loss when I stopped coming to the site, I won't make that mistake again!

    Way to go! This place does make such a difference! I started feeling guilty about being on here, thinking I should be exercising instead... now, I start the day with a 40 minute ride on the exercise bike and Spark with my laptop in hand!

    nice! I started about the same time as you and also no longer borderline diabetic and my choleterol is no longer in the danger zone, hopefully stopping meds at next check. I agree,SP takes time, can be addictive and sometimes up late on SP, but it is a full time job getting healthy isnt it! Id' just be on facebook anyways, or trying to find other support to stay healthy and probobly seeing the doc more for bad stuff.
    Good for you, great post and thanks for your support also!
