I just responded to a "HELP!" post someone posted because she is having a lot trouble sticking with it. I liked my response so I'm blogging it :)
I just celebrated my 3rd anniversary on Spark and guess what? I'm 1 1/2 lbs lighter than when I started. LOL! I lost a lot of weight, got depressed (unbeknownst to me I had a nerve being pinched in my neck and fibromyalgia and that's what got me depressed I think) and gained all I had before plus 20 and now I'm down 21 1/2 from there. So... yes, life sucks sometimes. But the race isn't won by those who sprint and collapse from exhaustion. It is won by those who do a little bit each day to improve their life and just keep adding from there. I rarely eat chips anymore and I used to eat them ALL THE TIME even for dinner!! I rarely drink pop and I used to be addicted (I'm talk 2 2-liters worth a day, at least!) so yeah, just keep going a little by little and EVENTUALLY you WILL get there :)
