Keeping it real


Thursday, May 26, 2011

The thing I've come to value and like the most about Sparkpeople, is the reality of it...

I know that sounds a bit odd when speaking of what is in essence a virtual world, but it keeps the process of changing myself very real. There is a level of accountability that I haven't had before. I've tried journals, support groups and so on, but they just didn't fit.

Here if I miss a day, I can catch up. It doesn't trigger guilt. There is enough distance between me and site that I can actually look at myself and my progress and lack thereof in a more impartial way.

Somehow the negative emotions that have been such problems in the past aren't triggered as easily here.

Best wishes to everyone!

    I agree. I'm actually shocked at how much kinder I've been to myself here than in the past, and I attribute a lot of it to the community here.
