I Am More Than My Weight Loss
Sunday, September 02, 2012
Last week a friend noticed my weight loss and I was happy, She was one of the first few who mentioned it. That was nice. Even nicer was all the nice things my Spark friends have written--THANKS!
I saw this friend again yesterday and all she wanted to talk about was how she needs to lose weight and her excuses. I had told her about SP, sent her the web site and forwarded Spark emails on several occasions. I don't think she has even looked at SP.
Frankly, I don't want to hear her excuses. Now, every time I see her, this is all I hear. I really don't like to talk about dieting away from SP because a lot of people just talk and don't do it.
SP is different--here people are actually trying to get fit. Some are just learning and educating themselves, working up to it. Some are actively working on weight loss and fitness. Some have done it and are working on maintenance. But all are DOING IT, not just talking!
I have always had so many more interests than just losing weight and getting fit. I don't want people to just see me as someone who is losing weight. Any suggestions out there on how to change the conversation?
