Coming Out Of My Shell


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I am a very quiet and private person so it takes me a while to get motivated to speak up, but reading about other people and I then realize we are all alike in one way or another; we all have our temptations, fears, etc. I am now going to try to open up and ask for your help and encouragement .

I am trying to get motivated and I think that getting on SP has helped me to get started in not just getting healthy but in organization of my home and that is a big step for me also. Thanks SP.

    I know just how you feel. I don't know if I was shy or afraid or both when I first started to use SP. But when I tried to do SP on my own, I feel I was much less successful. After getting bold enough to post a little, and then, even write a blog or 2, the encouragement is awesome. I know I can't do this alone, and I don't want to. You will get lots of help and encouragement. So please keep sharing your thoughts. You will be helping other people every time you share. So thanks! And have a fantastic day! Ellen emoticon

    I am also new to SP and a very private person but I know that I can not fight this battle alone. It is very encouraging to read the postings and see the sucess stories.

    Becoming more self confident has been an unexpected bonus since joining sparkpeople. The more open you are and share, the more people can help, support and advise - the better it is for you - you will have more guidance than you ever expected. Good Luck!

    This is so true. We are all here to lose weight and to get the help we need from other people!
