So I'm new to this whole idea of using a community to lose weight. Since I was in high school( when I essentially started worrying about weight), I've always believed weight loss was something I could handle on my own without any outside help. Initially when anyone gave me tips about losing weight I would respond with anger and resentment simply because I felt as though they were implying that was large and unattractive.. but that was all me and my insecurities. I am realizing now that the people in my life who were giving me tips were really just trying to help because they've been where I am now, struggling with my weight. I welcome all comments now, or at least I am trying to, including the comments that would otherwise make me feel horrible, (yesterday someone asked me if i was pregnant). I genuinely believe that with The Spark People Community I will achieve my goal.
