This month marks three years on SP and I have to say that I've given back as much as possible. Bought products, brought in new members, spread the word, etc. So, with that said, I feel a lot of gratitude.
As I read newbie blogs and smile at all of the familiar thoughts, feelings and expectations that are there in the beginning, there is a lot to be said.
One thing that sticks out right now, though, is that I used to think it was a cliche when more experienced members would remind me that this is a journey. I thought, sure, but I just wanna get these extra lbs off and then blow this town. (smiling)
However, it IS indeed a journey of much more than just lbs lost. Forming new, healthier behaviors is part of the adventure and one that is such an investment in the good health that I've continued to enjoy. How can I possibly expect all of the lifelong behaviors to change in a mere three years?
So, this is a journey that you can either relax and enjoy, or fight yourself every step of the way when the inevitable setbacks occur.
I vote for relax and enjoy. Sure, it takes work. But it's sooooo worth it.
Wishing all a wonderful day.
