I became involved in SP several years ago and "it worked" but now, as I look back and am once again comited to SP, I can see some differences in the two times that really speak to me.
First, I see now that I did not truly commit to SHORT TERM GOALS, even daily goals that I am doing this time. I have literally stumbled across a daily goal spot that really makes me THINK about what I want to accomplish today and stays in my mind and I succeed.
Secondly, I never really got INVOLVED in connecting with other Sparkers nor did I get involved in groups . This time I am more involved with groups where I get involved, donating and in turn receiving back.
I was so focused on the SCALE and I neglected looking at the BIGGER PICTURE. This time, I have relaxed with the scale and instead am more focused on broadening my base with more parts of the bigger picture.
To sum it all up, I think back on my first attempt and I remember feeling panicky and all consumed. It eventually broke me and I walked. This time, I have looked at what Spark People is offering up. There is so much and it is fun to search in corners that I didn't do the first time. I am much more relaxed, seeing myself move through it in moderation.
Hope that makes sense to any reader.
