Hello I have been at Spark people for awhile now, and I don't know what I would do without it. It has really helped me to to gain confidence and learn about healthier eating and exercise that can be actually fun to do. The people here are very encouraging, and it really helps when you don't have that at home. I have lost and gained, but I know true weight loss takes time as well as routine and self care.
I'm also learning to accept this body for who I'm, and not listening about what society says is beautiful, because its not attainable, nor is it healthy. I love the Dove program that tells young girls, and adult women that they are beautiful just they way they are. When I have learned to appreciate my body more, I;m finding that I love to take care of it because I want to, not because I 'm trying to fit into so type of society ideal.
It has been a 6 month personal growth time period, it has been hard at times, but it is well worth the effort and the learning process.Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your journey called Spark people~
