...it's about being healthy. That was a great reminder that a sparkfriend responded when I last blogged that I was not motivated. It's amazing how helpful the thoughts of friends are in keeping me reality-based. Another example this week, was when a friend responded to the artcile I cut and pasted about not wasting money on diet plans, diet pills, etc. I'd been periodically checking the website of the plan I'd been on for two months last October. It was a good start in eating the packaged foods (and learning things like portion control and all the other good tips), but I soon realized it was not for me. However, the people who started at the same time and are still on it have lost 55 or more pounds to my mere 33-35 (it varies - smiling). Okay, so without knowing this, a sparkfriend responded that she was on this plan and lost a bunch of weight, only to gain it all back and then some. And how happy she was to just be doing it the right way with SP. That was a great reminder to me that those folks will eventually have to eat real food, and that I was looking at it as though they had the magic answer. To all of my sparkfriends, thanks so much for your daily input. It's so helpful. Have a fun day.
