I have been participating in Spark, logging in, doing my food log, enjoying my spark friendships and reading blogs but I guess it is my turn to jump in and share more with everyone. I have found such inspiration from blogs and I feel like they make all the difference to me. Everyone sharing their feelings and reading someone relay a feeling that is exactly how you feel is just awesome. To feel not alone is great. There is so much support on spark and it is really key to keeping my motivation up and learning to emotionally handle this journey. After all, emotions are what really fuels my eating a lot of the time (or used to but I am getting better at it) but I have to control my environment as much as possible because when all hell breaks lose, well that is why the monster ravenous carb seeking Michelle comes out and says feed me, I need food, I am stressed, aaak!!!! Now I make it a point to exercise daily at least a half an hour walk at lunch and to go on to spark and read blogs and connect with my peeps. Thank you to all my new spark friends and to anyone reading this. Thank you to everyone in this community for being there and sharing and thank you to Spark for having this wonderful site. In my "real" life here, there is support but there are emotions and complicated relationships and lots of attachments that sometimes are not healthy or sabotaging and it is nice to have a nice clean support system on Spark where there is always love to be spread around and support. there is no argument going on or some alterior motive, just support and genuine care! I love it!!!!! Thanks Spark, Spark friends and everyone who enjoys this site, we are all in this together! Let's have a great Monday and drink lots of water, log in our journals and get moving and do some walking or whatever exercise makes us happy!!!!! I am here, I blogged! Woo hoo! Maybe I will think of some awesome stuff like some blogs I have read but for now at least I jumped in and may have flopped but who knows, I may turn into an Olympic diver and do some fancy ones at some point!!!
