January 1st, I started a Biggest Loser contest with a friend and 11 of her Facebook buddies. Since then, a few have dropped out, and of those who are left, no one is really trying anymore.
I joined SparkPeople, learned about nutrition, started exercising and tracking my food. I have worked very hard. I am so far ahead now, that it seems like everyone else has just given up.
I'm not going to stop what I'm doing. I'm doing this for me and my health and not some contest, but it's still kind of a bummer.
When others were doing well at first and were actually ahead of me, I always would congratulate them and send encouragement to everyone. Now, not one person congratulates me. Not that I'm doing this for the "congratulations", but it does hurt that they don't seem happy for me at all. I was genuinely happy for them.
Oh well, such is life! I am blessed to have a supportive husband, family and SparkFriends. Thank you everyone for the encouragement you give me everyday!
