I'm Giving Up


Friday, March 08, 2013

I'm giving up. My motivation is gone. I quit all spark teams cause it seemed like I didn't exist, like I didn't matter to anyone. All I want to do is cry. I have no help no nothing. I know that I have to do this but it's hard to do it alone. I have no one to walk with or anything. No one to help me or motivate me when I need it. I tried to be there for people when they need support. I have no faith in my self & my self confidence is gone. Well going to go now.

    Please don't give up! There really are great people here that will help you! You can contact me any time you want! I have been fighting this battle all of my adult life and I know how hard it is! I don't have many close friends and my mom is my only real support outside of Spark People! Please try to hold out a while longer! I am disabled and I have a horrible time with exercise! I know that I just have to do a little each day and that keeps me going!
We will be here to listen and encourage you along the way! emoticon emoticon

    I found that most of the teams were not very active. I am still a member of some - and ask questions when I can - however, I look for motivation elsewhere. The best place I have found is on people's blogs. I try to find people more like me - or going through what I am going through. Hopefully you will find what you are looking for - but don't give up.

If you can't find bread at King Soopers you don't give up and refuse to eat bread again! You go to another store - and then another. You can't find motivation on the groups - that's fine - look in other places. It is waiting to be found!

    Please do not give up! It is so hard. I know I have tried and failed so many times. I would be glad to help you. I am sending you a spark mail with my phone number. Call me. I will be more then happy to talk to you. We can do this journey together!

    Please don't quit! I see all the responses you received and it shows you that people do care and will reach out a hand. I exercise at home with Walk away the Pounds, I have the videos also they are here on sparkpages. If you use them you can do them when you want and by yourself or with your hubby. Just try to hang in there and look for small goals instead of the long term goal, sometimes that 50 pounds sounds impossible but 5 pounds sounds doable.

    Audrey ,

Please "DO NOT" GIVE UP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You are so worth this , we all get flusterated , but we must never give up . I find that talking with one or even two sparkfriends that you can depend on daily really helps . I do it moslty though spark mail . Maybe you could try that rather then teams , I know some teams that i have been on are like you say it is like we do not exist . But I do not let that stop me from pushing forward and setting myself up some mini monthly goals and then set out to meet them . I really hope you will not give up , please don't , we / you are worth it ! and our health depends on it . So lets take one day at a time and eventually we will see the results we are looking for : )

    Don't give up, keep sparking! YOU are definitely worth it! I don't get a lot out of the teams i have joined, but i do get a lot from the friends i have added, especially when i blog. I was just reading through the motivational quotes on Sparkpeople.com today and found one that is very appropriate: "if you have the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed!"

  I just went to your sparkpage, it looks like you've lost over 20 pounds based on your progress ticker at the bottom of your page. The progress may feel slow, but it looks like something is working. I often do not have anyone to work out with either, but I have to keep my chin up and know that I'm doing what is best for my body. You mention in your page that you are married, maybe you could get your hubby to walk with you. Even 10 minutes each day will help. Good luck.

    Please don't give up. Are there other spark teams that interest you? Sometimes you need to try a few out to find the ones that fit you.

    I'm really sorry to hear that. Please don't give up. Giving up is never the answer. Spark is a big place, it's easy to get lost here, but you can surely find some support here. Have you tried posting on the message boards too? Some groups are super big and super busy and that's why they don't always respond. Please remember why you are doing this -for yourself and your own good health. One day at a time! We all get frustrated, tired and want to quit - but even when you feel that way, one tiny step, one tiny victory, will start to move you down the road again. ((( HUGS )))
