I'm giving myself a
today because it is my 6 month anniversary of being a SP member.
isn't for weight loss or smaller clothing sizes. It's for consistency and perseverance.
When I started this journey, one of the things that I wanted to work on was developing "self-control". If you are a Christian, you know that this is one of the fruits of the Spirit and, along with patience, it is the one that I have the most trouble with in my life. So, to have made it through 6 months of logging in and being active on the site is a major accomplishment for me.
I have always given up and gone back to old habits and I just don't see that happening this time. I didn't set unrealistic goals this time around and I gave myself plenty of time to lose the weight.....great lesson in patience.
The times that I have experienced the biggest setbacks in the past 6 months were when I didn't log in and spend time on the SP site. I have a 26 day log-in streak going again and my goal is a 365 day streak. I want to see where I can be a year from now if I am persistent and continue to look to SP as a place to receive and give support.
So, here it goes again
. Not just for myself but for all the other SP members who share this journey towards a healthier lifestyle.
