Getting out of my head, and onto SparkPeople

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

Probably my biggest challenge in succeeding in this fresh start that I've embarked on is to realize that I can't do this on my own. The ongoing commentary going on inside my head during all these years of trying to lose weight on my own has always dragged me down. I've always been intensely private when it comes to online postings, but seeing my sister's success after 3 months of actively blogging and participating in Spark teams has inspired me to be brave and step out into this semi-public forum. I can be very competitive when given a challenge, so I expect to start participating in some of the Spark challenges and see where it takes me. The amount of content on SP is somewhat overwhelming, so it will take me awhile to hone into the areas that are most interesting to me, but I'm sure I can figure it out!

To adapt Phil. 1:6 for my quote for the day, "I am confident that He who began a good work in me will be faithful to perform it until the day of Christ Jesus."
