  • I had been staring at this article for weeks. It was added to my daily tabs that open every day my browser was clicked, so it was always before me, waiting for me to actually read it. Today I did, and I am glad. Feel a little more encouraged about my flaws. - 10/10/2016 3:16:32 PM
  • I just can't seem to lose. I have been at the same weight for two weeks. I lost some at first but it has stopped. I have begun to do more exercise and I am not cheating on my diet. no more than 1200 calories a day . anyone got any idea what I can do to get going again. I want to just quit but I can not do that. - 7/20/2016 12:45:33 PM
  • Great article if I may add (for me) daily I give may all to God, and at the end of the day I leave everything with God. because His word tells me in Philippians 4:13 "I can do all this through him who gives me strength." and when I feel I have not reach the mark I hold true to God's word with: Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
    Now once again this is me, but maybe just maybe someone out there it is them too... :) - 7/8/2016 7:43:43 AM

  • Good morning Liz, well written information. I have found at this point in time, I am more conscientious about what I eat at each meal and snacking. Do I have the proper ingredients for protein, fats, carbs, etc. I am trying not to fly by the seat of my pants when I go out with friends. Skip the fries and replace with a salad. I am really enjoying my food groups and exercising more often. My energy level has also increased. - 1/28/2016 10:57:05 AM
    very inspirational. So glad to have found this page on how to deal with setbacks. I am finding Spark People has so many helps that I have not used before. - 11/2/2015 3:05:13 PM
  • The last sentence was a bit of an over-simplification: Wanting it badly and working very hard to achieve it are not absolutes; we humans are very complex. Up to that point, I found the article to be very encouraging. Thank you for posting it. - 10/15/2015 1:18:22 PM
  • Great article. I have been feeling pretty badly about my journey. I really needed this.

  • I'm too hard on myself! I've been doing SP for more than 7 years, have kept most all the weight off, am nearly 80, cook for 7 people and beat myself up when I get off track. Sometimes I am just too tired to give myself special attention.
    Thanks for this article, I needed that! - 9/10/2015 6:05:24 PM
  • Lovely article. Just what I needed to hear today. - 7/8/2015 1:00:06 PM
