Being present on Spark People

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

I have had a sporadic presence here on Spark People during the past year.
During that same time, I have had only sporadic success with my weight loss.

It is apparent to me now that my success depends on my making more of a steady commitment. I have been lazy, and that has to end.

Once again, I must focus more on my goals and on the behaviors that will help me reach those goals.

From past experience, I know that the best way for me to do that is to spend more time here on Spark People - reading about health and nutrition, tracking my food and exercise, and connecting regularly with my many SP friends.

For me, SP is a special place where I can come and focus on me and my eating.
It is a place where I learn about myself and where I gain insights into my behaviors.
Reading blogs, responding to blogs, and writing blogs have taught me a great deal.
I need to be back doing that again.

So, as a first step, for the next week or so, while I have nothing special on my calendar, I will once again be actively present every day here on Spark People.

    I have come to realize how important fellowship is in helping me get to my goals; the community here at SP can be so intelligent, thoughtful and warm that it cannot help but be a great reason for the success of so many. Glad you're here, Susan!

    I agree that being present here on SP helps keep us mindful of living healthier ...and you can't beat the support of spark buddies. Just when I'm feeling down, I always read a comment or blog that inspires me to keep trying. emoticon

    Love your commitment to be present here on SparkPeople! It is a great place to focus on yourself and being good to your body. Don't call yourself lazy, but commit to do more - even 10 minutes more per day consistently will make a difference! You know what you need to do and you can do it!! I'm looking forward to reading more of your blogs!! -Marsha
