Hello, I'm Determined...

Sunday, September 23, 2012

This website is an answer to my prayers. I've only been a member for nearly 2 weeks now, and the knowledge that I've already been blessed to learn, and the help that this site and the people of the SP community have already proven to give is amazing to say the least. For the first time in my life, I have the feeling "I can do this!", and I somehow just know that this time it's going to be different than all the countless times that I've tried to lose weight before. The feelings are different. The work outs are different. The determination is different. Everything about it this time is...different. This time, I know I'm not alone. I know that there really are people out there that care and that want to help. SparkPeople has given me a hope that I've never known before. I am looking forward, as I take this journey (with SP to help me), to finding a new, healthy me. Hello, I'm Determined...

    Such a wonderful blog ~ and you hit on something that is so true. There are a lot of other weight loss and fitness sites out there, but the community here at SP is truly unique. There are so many wonderful, positive, supportive people here. You have to look really, really hard to find any meanness or snarky-ness that seem to flourish for some reason in other public forums. SP really does draw the best people, and they have a great team of experts to offer suggestions and advice. I think one of the most helpful philosophies they have is the one of making smaller changes and building on those, not trying to overhaul your whole life at once ('cause we all know THAT doesn't work!) I'm glad you've found SP and glad to be your Spark Friend. Together, we really CAN do this!

    Of course you can do it! Just take it one day at a time, and if you mess up be sure to start all over again.
