Isn't it GREAT to be HONEST?!

Wednesday, February 02, 2011

I just finished my workout while I watched The Biggest Loser. On the show there was a commercial asking if "you want to be the next biggest loser go to......" and I thought, "I don't have to. I'm doing it now!" Wow......what a cool thought! Then I was thinking about my weight and how all of you know what it is, yet my husband nor friends know. That's because I hide it from them out of shame, yet here....among fellow sufferers/survivors/champions I am completely honest. When I have a victory, I want to come and share it and when I have a difficult day, I want to share that with you. You have no face, no name, but you have the heart to understand. Thank you.

    For some reason it's easier to bare our souls (and our weight) to strangers than to the people we know and love. Crazy, but true. Like you, I tell everyone here how much I weighed, how much I have lost, and my inner most feelings about all of it. I never share this stuff with anyone I know in real life. I guess we are anonymous here, and no one is judging us. Thank goodness for Spark!!

    I feel the same way as you do. We can be completely honest with friends here, because it is a safe environment and everyone understands our feelings and is caring and supportive. We are more embarassed about our (in our eyes) inadequacies with those who know us more intimately, because we don't want them to be critical of us. SparkPeople is the BEST!!!

    Your also better than those people on this show, they have every element to make them loss weight around them.. The director is the puppet show manager, they want huge results- slow weight loss and no weight loss doesn't sell television..
