I can tell you that I have basically been keeping sparkpeople a secret because I felt that people would'nt understand why I joined a sight to lose weight and to find motivation. Before I joined spark I always said to people I got to lose weight, I got to lose weight, I'm fat, I hate the way my clothes fit. I just felt so unattractive but then I would lose weight then continued to put it back on. I felt really stupid saying this so many times and sharing it with others. So I decided to keep my losing weight to myself. I joined spark to see if I could find what I needed which it did and still never shared it with people because I thought they would be like there she goes again singing that same old tune. So I was better off keeping it to myself. Now after 3 years and down 40 pounds I am now more confident that I can do this. I can't believe because of my confidence I have recruited to friends into joining spark. I am so proud of myself. I was actually giving them advice and really selling what I knew and learned from Spark. Wow what a great feeling. Now they actually love the site and was made that I never shared it before. So now I will try to recruit more and get more people to see that if I can gain the confidence, courage and motivation from sharing they can to.

To Sparkpeople and friends thanks for being my inspiration.

    Great job! You can do anything and kudos for bring more people to the site. I try to tell people more than once. They think it's a pill or we sell food products. I always remind my facebook friends because I put my status on there too. It's a great place to be and congratulations on your weight loss and keep inspiring us!

    The answer to your question is YES!!! I truly am motivated by your blog because I can feel your enthusiasm while reading it. Also, remember others are watching you whether they say something to you about the changes they see in you or not. When we are happy and have joy inside, I believe that it shows outwardly without us every having to open our mouths and saying a word. Trust, others see the confidence and the happiness that you have. Keep doing what you're doing by motivating others around you.
