I'm not sure how I found out about Sparkpeople because it was at least 8 years ago. I am very happy I found this website. I owe a lot to this website. I learned about weightloss and eating healthy right here on Spark. I discovered a whole community of people who struggle with the same issues I do. I am forever grateful for this website and for the great people that make it up. I sometimes go months and not log in:( BUT!! I always come back. I love all of the motivational blogs and all of the recipes people post. I love all of the team leaders that put in time to help the teams out. I love that people connect over health and exercise. I love it that STRANGERS can help you sometimes more than your own friends and family. We are a family on here and in this weightloss/health community. We should always cheer each other on and lend an open ear. You never ever know who you are helping in your life . You never know that a blog you wrote or your page helps people through their own problems. You could be someone's inspiration. Let's always help each other, cheer each other on, and just be there for one another. Thank you Sparkpeople for giving us a platform to do all of these great things! CHEERS TO POUNDS BEING LOSS, MUSCLES BEING GAINED, 5KS AND MARATHONS BEING RAN , AND NEGATIVE MINDS TURNED INTO POSITIVE ONES!!!!
