I would say one of the biggest challenges to loosing weight is getting past that negative ego. That little voice in the back of your head that tells you, you can't accomplish your goals. In the beginning you listen to that voice, you start to believe what it is telling you and you just dwell in your own misery. That was me for many years, I was pushing the scale at 199 pounds. I was depressed and stuck in a rut. I think at that point I had just given up, I did care what people thought, but because I lacked respect for myself I just pretended I was invisable. I was never the kind to gorge on fastfood, but my problem was I ate to much and I lacked a consistant eating habbit.

One day I just got sick of it, I knew i was so much better then the person I had let myself become. As a light worker I realized I could not help people if I could not help myself and I made weight loss one of my goals on my healing journey.

    Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*
