It's funny to find out now, that I am not motivated by the things I thought I was. Go figure! I scan the blogs and this website looking for "positive" posts and encouragement. I found it positive and uplifting but, it didn't make me eat better or exercise more. It made me frustrated that I couldn't do it myself. All of these people are doing it and I can't???? What's wrong with me?
So, I start reading blogs that don't sound uplifting by reading the title. I find a new member, that is struggling, just like me. It sounds dumb but, that new member is motivating me more than any other has. She posts that she is struggling and it makes me want to encourage her more. Which, in turn, encourages me!
I don't want anyone to struggle the way I have. Although, I think we all do. It's just that, I give her ideas on how to make it through her day and it's like I am talking to myself. I feed her the tips and tools I have learned through this site and it is a reminder to myself, as well.
Thank you SparkPeople! You are all AWESOME!
