Okay... here goes. Back to basics... kind of.
SP Step 3 was only supposed to be 10 weeks or so. After *mumblemumble* number of weeks, I finally said, "FINE! I'll switch to Step 4!"
Once I got there, I realized it was for people who had met their goals. I spiraled into more depression with what seemed like failure looking me in the face. I had failed to meet my goals in the alotted time. I felt like a big fat failure.
FAILURE?!?!?!?!?! Sheesh. I have lost 26 pounds and KEPT IT OFF.
FAILURE?!?!?! I have been able to do a lot more than I was ever able to do before my new lifestyle.
FAILURE?!?!?! I have tuned in to my body's needs and eat healthy foods much more frequently.
FAILURE?!?!?!?!?! I have dropped at least one complete dress size, maybe two, chosen clothes that flatter my new figure, and received compliments galore.
FAILURE?!?!?!? I have networked and encouraged others through my SUCCESS, recruited others to SP, and even realized that I CAN do this without it taking over my life.
FAILURE?!?!?!??!??!?! GET OVER IT!!
Even though I am going back to re-learn things from Step 3, it doesn't make me a failure. I am a successful person, and I will continue working toward success in my weight loss goals.
Spark on! :-)
