she wasnt thanking me for the earrings. i had run the biggest loser 5k before the yard sale & was still wearing my shirt with my before picture on it. she had asked if it was me & i told her yes! when she asked how, i told her diet, exercise & sparkpeople.com. well, apparently 3 weeks ago she got on spark people and changed her life! shes lost 7 or 8 lbs and said her customers (shes a waitress) are noticing! she couldnt stop saying " you dont understand, this is working for me, i am SO HAPPY". i do understand, and it was music to my ears.
this is exactly what im talking about when i say i want everyone on board so everyone can feel what i feel. it is an AMAZiNG feeling to take control of your body. AMAZING. and Harriet knows it.
we discussed our schedules and both have wednesday afternoons off- so i have a new wednesday work out buddy. she has a knee injury so we wont be doing anything crazy but im happy to help her.
on sparkpeople.com they refer to this as "spreading the spark". i am so happy to be spreading the spark. i know my journey is responsible for many people beginning to change their lives, just like someone did for me. a friend from home had posted her sisters spark page last january. she was talking about how happy she was and proud of her sister for getting the weight off. I was about a week into my journey when i joined. I wouldve never known about sparkpeople.com if she hadnt posted that- and none of you would be reading this right now! so thank you Sarah!
i hadnt exercised much today, but harriet inspired me. I just did 30 each of squats, lunges, & push ups. im no olympian but its better than zero squats lunges & push ups! :-D
