Today is my 9th SparkAnniversary!
Monday, January 19, 2015
That's right! I joined Sparkpeople NINE years ago today! I have 9 years of almost weekly weigh-in statistics! That's pretty cool!
Nine years ago today I weighed 137 pounds. Today I weigh 147, though not my highest. At the time I joined I was newly engaged, and married 8 months later that year. The following year we would buy our first house. That next year I decided to start running for the first time in my life and completed my first 5K that spring. Four years after joining, I saw the birth of my first child, followed by the birth of my second child 2 years after that. Today I am part of the Biggest Loser Challenge and am on a losing trend weight-wise. I run some days, ride my bike some days, lift weight some days, and very recently I have started attending gym classes: zumba and yoga so far.
I've come a long way here, met lots of other sparkmembers, found teams and challenges to be a part of. All are a part of my journey to be at my ideal weight of 130 pounds (which I did reach the summer of 2008). I know I can do it, but I can't without the support of my teams and teammates...Thank You!
