I realized recently that a couple of my Sparkfriends who joined around the same time as me (Jan 9) had fallen off the grid. When I went to check out their pages, they had been taken offline! This makes me so sad! Both of these girls were really doing well with their weight loss, but the more I thought about it I realized that they were both cutting calories WAY back and trying to do hardcore gym workouts almost every day. Now that's great and all but it seems like maybe when they couldn't maintain those habits they just gave up completely.
My own weight loss has been fairly slow, and sometimes even backwards. I gained a couple pounds back this past week or so and was really feeling awful about it but the important thing is that I am NOT giving up. But I'm also not going to try to lose 5lbs this week. I'm going to keep exercising - even a little bit counts! - and I'm going to continue to slowly slowly slowly try to change my eating habits.
I wish I had a way to reach out to the two friends who disappeared and ask them to come back and try again. It's not going to happen overnight. It might even take a YEAR OR MORE! But the important thing is that we keep trying. And we're all in this together, right?
