Trying a new outlook on life.

Saturday, June 22, 2013

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.

    I am sorry you've had to endure such unkind comments. Well-meant or not, that's rude and seldom does conversation like that ever help anyone who's struggling with weight issues.

Best of success to you every step of your journey back to the health you deserve.

    Spark has a lot of great tools to assist you in reaching your goals. A lot of people love the fitness and nutrition trackers that are located under the orange My Trackers tab at the top of the page. You can find free exercise videos under the orange Articles & Videos tabs. I enjoyed reading your blog. emoticon
