I am a little unhappy about a message made on a board concerning points.For me it was very upsetting . . . It is important to be aware that different people are in different situations, and sometimes judging words can be so -o-o-o cruel.
My time is pretty much my own to do as I please. I have the luxury of working out how ever long i want to each day. Therefore i can probably rack up extra fitness points, and spark points, which other people may not be able to, because they do not have the time. I realize that many people don't have this luxury . . . i have been there before myself when I was raising 5 children, which kept me constantly busy.
I have only been a member for 3 months and have worked very hard at accomplishing what i have here on sparks. Sometimes the weight we have lost does not reflect our workouts . . . I am a hypothyroid who has just had to be re-diagnosed, At times every step I took was excruciatingly painful . . . but i kept on going. Unless you yourself have this disease you may not understand what this pain means. As hypos we have to work twice as hard to lose every pound. I could go on forever about the things i deal with everyday but . . . take a peak on the thyroid sight and you can see for yourself . . . . Let's listen to the people who are literally crying out for help . . .
My point . . . at last . . . is this . . .
We must be very careful how we speak of people who seem to not balance out in fitness minutes and weight loss. Leaders must be especially aware of this.
One of the things i first learned when i started Sparks is not to go by weight. . . and i am sure you heard that a few times yourself. We are all different, and that is what makes it interesting!! So let's be careful what we think about people who are struggling everyday, each of us with different problems and illnesses. Each individual has our own problems.
My heart reaches out to what many of you have faced, and will continue to face in the future. But let's reach out to each other in a caring way!
Personally, I do not even notice a person's points, but if we "must" do that . . . let's not be so quick to judge!! The Bible says . . . "judge not, that you be not judged!!" good words to live by eh??? Thank you for your time and patience.
I am so happy to have SPARKS to help me on this journey to health and fitness.
Sorry . . .Just had to get it out !!
