  • Yes indeed! It is through sharing both our good days AND our bad that we prove we are all human and all in this together. I am honestly most often encouraged by a "big loser" who says in a blog "oops, messed up today--not letting it ruin my life". emoticon - by KATHIERAE
  • Friendships are formed through trusting others via blogs, posting on pages or forums. Positive comments are the best encouragement we can share and give to one another. emoticon - by KEKEIKO
  • YES! I am also working on being honest with myself. I was always a skinny person and have gained 40 pounds in the last 2 years due to over eating, less movement and stress of empty nest. I think I have found an outlet here on SP for the encouragement and friendships that I have been lacking. Thank you for your friendship and for blogs like this one. emoticon - by SRENATA
  • Yes, we should be able to share the good and the bad. Let us support and spur one another one to do good. :) - by SUNSHINE99999
