Do you need a Sponsor?!

Wednesday, September 28, 2011

It only takes one push to knock the entire row of domino’s over. And that’s exactly what happens when we start to feel defeated!

We have one bad lunch, and the day is shot, we have one bad day and the week is shot. The week turns into a month, and you suddenly find yourself on December 31st making the same old new years resolution.

That isn’t where I want to be this December 31st. I want to be 30 lbs lighter (that 10% of my current weight, LOST!)

Accountability is key!

Why is AA such a successful program? (I personally haven’t gone through the program, but loved ones have). Sponsors!!

Every one has a sponsor, a sponsor keeps you accountable. Sponsors become friends; friends who keep you on track, friends who talk to you at midnight when you are struggling.

Today I challenge everyone on Spark to find a “sponsor”. Look through your buddy list, send a message, Cheer someone on. Let them know they are an inspiration to you. We’ve all been there, are there, or are trying to never “be there” again. Reach out today to someone new and get your spark on!!

    There are "12 step" programs for food as well... Overeaters Anonymous (OA) and Anorexic/Bulimic Anonymous (ABA) come to mind. You can check their websites and find meetings (real live, face to face meetings) in your area. It works for a lot of people.

    I love this concept also! I like to think I have a couple of sponsors and that I'm a sponsor for them as well. You can never have too many people like that in your life!
