...you work out five extra minutes just so you can log it in and get points ...you walk in the door from a restaurant and immediately log in what you ate to see how much damage you did ...you see that all your friends drink teeny-tiny (4 oz.)glasses of water and are satisfied, whereas you can now down 32 oz. of water with no problem
"Although eating honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called..." - The House at Pooh Corner by A.A. Milne
"When you have to regularly bite your tongue to keep yourself from criticizing the way other people are eating!"
That is so true. I don't want to come off as trying to be better than other people. I am usually really modest, but I can't help but think things like, "how can they eat that? All those calories would go straight to my butt!" I'd like to speak out sometimes, but I don't want my friends think that I'm trying to put them down.. I'd just love to have them be healthy as well. Oh well, I'm not one to pry.
Another thing is when you want to belt it out from the rooftops every day that you're losing weight and eating healthier! Every day I want to shout out and tell everyone about how I'm eating better, but again, I don't want to come off as a snob. Life is hard. lol
...you get into conversations about weight, then you immediately ask everyone if they've ever heard of SparkPeople.com!
...you know how much water you drink everyday.
...you know what Sparkpoints are!

when you stand in the aisle at the grocery store reading the nutritional content of every box of cereal, not just looking at the calorie count but the fiber and other nutrients as well.
When you ignore your voice mails at work first thing in the morning so you can log into SP and add your coffee to the tracker.
When you tell the gang "no thanks" when they are going to your favorite mexican restaurant because you know it won't fit into that day's calorie count and you are THAT CLOSE to being able to weigh in and go down another lb on your tracker.
When you find yourself thinking, "should I tell him/her about Sparke People and what it has done for me?" when ever you meet a new person.
