*First, I just want to say that I am no way a paid endorser for SparkPeople or SparkCoach. AT ALL! I just really love this new service, and I think that everyone should AT LEAST check out the two week free trial!*
SparkCoach, what can I say? It has all the daily motivation and accountability that you could ever need. I love it. A lot. I really enjoy the daily visualization task and the daily community action step. The visualization allows me to think about why I am on this journey to begin with. The community action step gets me involved here on Spark, gets me inspired, and helps me to (hopefully) inspire others.
We all know that there is no magic formula. But, I am certainly thinking more about my food choices. I don't want to look at my tracker and see that I blew my calorie range on something silly! I'll save it for something really worth it, like Thanksgiving :)
I struggle, but SparkCoach is giving me the courage to face my demons. Exercise is my demon. That $40/month gym membership that I pay? You guessed it, I haven't been in months. I want to change that. I'm getting to the point where I think that I CAN change that! I make excuses - I'm busy, I'm tired, I never just get to relax. I guess I'll be doing a lot of relaxing if I don't get this weight off and get my blood pressure down because I'll be stuck in a hospital bed!
I did the two week free trial of SparkCoach. Well, 13 days, and then I signed up for it. Today. I love it. It is giving me what I need.
We all approach this journey differently. If you're struggling, though, give this a try. It may be just what you need, too.
