I've been on spark for many years, six to be precise, and not once have I ever learned as much as I have about myself and the lifestyle that I am trying to achieve as I have in the last month or so.
I put this down to sparkcoach. Having something to check into everyday keeps me accountable and the articles have helped me understand so much about myself. I used to do the typical thing of beating myself up over every little mistake and promising to 'start over' again tomorrow. I'm beginning to realise now that falling down is just part of learning, the same way it was when I learned to walk. I didn't think to beat myself up then, so why should I now? I've had a few slips since joining sparkcoach and having this knowledge has armed me against the little voice in my head. I realise now that I don't have to start over tomorrow, I can make a better decision the next time I eat and let go of the bad choice I made.
Everyday I'm learning something new and it's pretty cool to finally feel like I have a handle of my healthy. I can choose to eat well or I can choose not too, my bad habits do not rule me, everything is a choice and I choose to be good to me.
