We are going on vacation for a few days and I know we will be eating rich seafoods, fried sea foods, tartar sauce, ice cream. I am going to eat and enjoy my seafood, it's once per year and we always look forward to returning to our favorite restaurants and it is part of the vacation experience for us and I don't believe that 2-3 days of vacation eating will break me; I believe I have the motivation and am in the right state of mind to come home and pick up where I left off.
One thing that kind of makes me sad on SparkPeople is that I have noticed there are a lot of fleeting relationships with fellow Sparkers. What I mean is that it is painfully apparent that some (few) people on SparkPeople join with the best intentions, friend me and converse with me, we work on motivating each other, and then 2 weeks later they disappear from SparkPeople never to be seen or heard from again. I feel like when these people disappear that I really miss them, miss sharing the mutual struggle, and miss cheering each other on. I feel that part of my success on here is definitely based on working together with others to reach success. When people disappear I feel like I take 2 steps back.
I am seeking out befriending people who have a longer history on SparkPeople. I would really love some Spark friends who are interested in working together long-term, through all the ups and downs. It is hard to make "virtual" friends.
Well, I am off to mow my lawn in the heat and humidity. Going swimming later to cool off. Good luck fellow Sparkers!
Your Spark Friend, Amy
