From a Spark into a Fire!

I've been using SparkPeople since Spring of 2011, although there was a long break after my wedding when I didn't log in.

Christmas, 2012, I received a FitBit, and it has been an awesome motivator for me. Friend me through that page, too! http://www.fitbit.com/user/24HR6Z

When I tell people they don't need to lose weight and I scoff at their complaints about an extra pound or two or ten, it's not because I'm criticizing them but because I think they're crazy that they don't see how great they already look. I mean, if they want to lose more and look better, that's great. More power to them. But they shouldn't put themselves down because they look good already. I guess it's a body compliment within a mental insult? Lol Maybe I need to rethink how to give the compliments. But those people are stick thin.

As for you, you look good and if you're overweight then only good can come from losing some pounds. So long as you don't get a negative view of yourself which is sooooo easy to get and keep. Every time I look in the mirror I shudder so I'm obviously still working on that self-image aspect.

Good luck meeting your goals! And congratulations on your upcoming wedding!!

Whether you have 1 lb or 100+lbs to lose your goals are still as legit as anyone elses. Sure, others might look at you and see you as being rediculous or silly. But its all about finding whats right for you!

Me--if I could weigh my glorious weight of 250+ and FEEL ok, then you know my happy arse wouldnt be on this wagon. But the problem is, that I dont feel great and I WANT to look good...so here I am.

So cmon girl. Saddle up and lets ride! Shake your booty today!! Youll be lookin good in no time!
