Well, I'm at the point in my SP journey where the motivational emails are about 1 step back, 2 steps forward. How did this computerized mentor know that that is exactly what is happening with me? Of course, I'm having a hard time going those 2 steps forward, but I've done great going one step back! See, I gained a pound back. I know a pound isn't much, especially considering that one pound doesn't add up to much in my grand scheme of weight-loss. But it's the principle. I really haven't gone nuts eating, so it kind of baffles -- and clearly irritates -- me. I wish I could say it is all muscle, that'd be great! It's good timing to be getting those emails about keeping my motivation going. I guess I'm right on par with most Sparkers. I'm average.
On further introspection, when I take the polls, 98% of the time I am in the majority category. I 'm average.
Maybe being average is not a bad thing. It means I am not alone. It means there is a lot of empathy out there. It means that I have a lot of friends in the ether that is Sparkpeople who are silently cheering me on, telling me that if I just stick with it, I'll jump the hurdle. Thank you friends.
