Yeah, I know. Cheesy title but I thought it would get your attention.
I am less than 2 months away from my vacation. I haven't dropped as much weight as I would have liked but I feel better. I feel better about myself and physically. My knees don't hurt as bad. I don't tire as easily. I can keep up with my buddy on our (or his) walk and I don't want to curl up in a little ball by the afternoon after that walk.
I look forward to SP and the friends I have made here. I know it looks like a bunch of pics on a computer and a note here and there to some, but it really does make a difference to me and countless others out there. I know you are there and I appreciate it. I look forward to your comments, your jokes, your stories, your tears, to share your failures but, most of all, - TO YOUR SUCCESS.
You are my inspiration. You are my desire to make ME better. You are my friends. You sympathize with me because you have been there or are here with me now or will be with us in the future.
Do I know you? NO. Not really. But I would like to.
Do I know where you are? NO. And it doesn't matter.
Do I admire and appreciate you. OH YES!! From the depths of my heart. YES.
We will do this and do you know why? It is a proven fact that people who go through weight loss alone have less weight loss than those who have a support group. That's why groups like Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, Curves, etc. have more success than those that go it alone.
Wanna know why? We don't like to "suffer" alone. But, why suffer at all? Why not depend on what worked for one may work for another? Why not figure that if YOU can do it, so can I? Why not learn from the mistakes of another of what "FAD" didn't work and why and go on to something that DID work for someone and why?
We, as a society are NOT loners. The human race is a "pack" so to speak. We carry on ffrom the example of our cannine creatures in the respect that we all work for the better of the group rather than the better of the individual. Why else do you think they hunt in packs?
We at SP are a pack. Wanna be in my group??? I want to be in yours. See ya there.
