It's time

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

For those of you who saw my blog yesterday - and watched the video . . . . this has led to a huge change in my mindset. I looked at a whole lot more of Robin's videos - and I realised that I am done with Spark People.

As Robin would say - "not in a mean way". I am not angry or sad - I just realise that I don't want this anymore. Spending time on SP is taking time away from the life I want to be living.

It is time for me to really embrace the Intuitive Eating philosophy. And make food one small part of my life.

Thank you to my 81 spark friends.

This is my solemn vow and promise -
* I will never go on another 'diet' again.
* I will continue to pursue a healthy happy life for my mind, my spirit and my body.
* I will use this great place that I am at to launch the rest of my life from - a person who is not defined in anyway by her body or a number on a scale.
* I will nuture my body, giving it what it needs.
* I will remember all my SP buddies & my time here with great fondness, and with thanks for all you have given me.

    I do not really follow what SP says anymore, it just does not work for me, but I am here for the support which I find critical.

    I just came to the realization that I started having all these food issues and exercise issues when I had joined another weight loss site and gone away from eating when hungry and exercising because I liked it. Then getting on Spark with it's rewards for exercising and tracking foods and the immediate feedback if you ate too much food and you need to eat between this range of calories to lose this amount of weight, just made it worse. The more I think about it, the more I too might need to find a different support system.

    Something for me to seriously think about and blog about.

    Kind of like graduating maybe? Glad you are in a comfortable, knowledgeable place.
    I wish you the best and understand all your points. Obviously this is not an impulsive decision, but instead the right step for you.

    I really want to thank you for saying good-bye and explaining why.
    Sometimes people just drop out and it kind of freaks me out!
    This will give me closure and a good feeling when I realize "you're gone."

    Take care!

    This makes me very sad... I need people like you around to support me with my own intuitive eating. But of course you have to do what's best for you. Good luck.

    I totally understand this. Some day, I know I will have to quit SP and get my "real life" back. SP really is super time-consuming. Thank you so much for all your support and advice and sharing your experience; you have left me some of the most meaningful messages these last however-many months, and I really appreciate it. I wish you all the best and I know you will stick to those promises! :) Take good care of yourself and enjoy your SP-free intuitive happy healthy life!! (I know you will.)
