Just Don’t Say A Word


Wednesday, June 26, 2013

My mom always told my brothers and I that; “ if you do not have anything good to say, just be quiet”. Recently, an associate and I were talking about my journey to a healthier life style with Spark People and her latest “super new diet plan”. I am on a journey, not a diet. Her only comment was; “well you did not meet your target weight on your target day now, did you”? I realize that some people in my circles of friends have frontal lobe issues and I am never surprised at what may come out of their mouths. I have to admit that my associate was right; I have not met my target weight, however I have numerous incentives for the staying with Spark People. I feel great, I am down 4 sizes and did I tell you that I feel great? I am enjoying every day that the Lord gives me. My doctors congratulate me on my current weight lost and my routine tests are looking good. What is it about Spark People? emoticon I think it is the great encouraging people here emoticon emoticon and all of the wonderful tools that we have. emoticon I am in a good place because I know that as long as I take one day at a time with God and Spark People, I will get there in my time—which is what matters most to me. “I cried to the Lord in my trouble, and He answered me and put me in a good place”. (Psalms 118:5 NLV).

    Big congrats on what you have been doing since last September when you joined SP! Our culture screams "Diet" at us, but we are each blessed to have learned that life style changes step by steady step are the best way to reach nutrition, fitness and wellness goals. Good for you for trusting GOD instead of of new super program for weight loss. Maybe your co-worker will begin to understand that she needs this, too. emoticon emoticon emoticon Keep on keeping on!! emoticon

    I noticed you said her latest “super new diet plan”. My thought about that is if her last DIET worked she would not have needed a NEW SUPER DIET. Some folks dont get its a lifestyle. You are doing great!!!!

    I am so glad you did not let ugly remarks get you down. You have done so much, down 4 sizes! I can't wait until I can say that. Great job!

    I was taught the same thing. It took me a long time to get to where I wanted, no biggie. Lifestyle change has a better chance at staying where you want to be healthy wise and weight wise. That's how I feel. Keep doing what you are doing you are doing the right thing. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Some people should just hush. Her statement just shows how much she doesn't understand about the weight loss process. You are doing a great job Linda & your journey is teaching you lessons that will help you continue to live healthier beyond just achieving your weight goal and long after your co-worker's super new diet plan has lost it's luster.
