Has my journey been painful so far, or adventurous?
Saturday, March 16, 2013
My Spark Coach program today asked me that question. You know, I really hadn't thought about it as adventurous. So I thought I would dig a little deeper into what it meant to be adventurous.....
1. Willing to take risks or to try out new methods, ideas, or experiences.
2. Involving new ideas or methods
So, Yes, it has been adventurous by definition.
When I began Spark People I didn't know what it would be like. I didn't know what I could learn. But most of all I didn't know that it would change everything about me. To even embark on the Spark People journey I had to take a risk. Was I willing to change my way of thinking in regards to food? Was I willing to change my outlook on exercise? Yes I was. I was and I am very willing to change to become the healthier woman God intended me to be.
And as far as trying out new methods, ideas and experiences, well, I was more than willing. I had realized that the way I had been living life, my eating habits, my exercise habits, my sleep habits, my socialization habits, and my view of myself as a whole was lacking to the point of my being negligent in those areas. I was failing Life 101!
The Spark People program has taken me out of my shell, placed me smack dab in the mainstream of life and said "Let's Go!" But even better, The Spark People program said "Don't be afraid, we are right there with you!" A person couldn't ask for more than that!
So, as I continue on this adventurous journey to a healthier me, I have nothing to fear, and everything to gain!
So far, as I lost pounds, I have gained a wonderful family of misfits just like me! A family that will stand by me, encourage me, and love me no matter what!
Thank God for the wonderful Spark People family and for the love they easily and eagerly share with me! Let's continue on this wonderful, adventurous journey of life!
