nevermind about that

Friday, August 12, 2011

Well, that was a stupid blog post, to be sure, so I deleted it. Just me, whining. Who wants to read that? no one. Anyway, all I got were irrelevant suggestions that started pissing me off. If you can't take the time to LOOK AT WHAT MY WEIGHT IS before you say that I "weigh less now than I did back then," well, that is pretty insincere and sort of mean. I never said I was going to give up, I was just FRUSTRATED and was looking for support dealing with poor results despite great efforts.

I guess blogging on sparkpeople isn't going to be the best crutch for support / motvation for me after all. It's great when I feel good, but just frustrating when I don't. Despite best intentions, people just post what works for them without considering the person whose blog they are commenting on. Thanks anyway, I guess. I need to find some real people that I can really meet and talk to face-to-face. People who know ME, and not random people I don't know who stop by my blog and leave comments that make me more frustrated because they know nothing about me.

At this point, I don't want to stop blogging here on Spark, because it is (sometimes) helpful and I do feel grateful to my sparkfriends and their support. Maybe I should only blog when I am happy? it is unrealistic to rely on a support system only when you are in a good mood.. hence the idea of needing a real-people support system. I might set this blog to friends only, but then again I would be missing out on making new friends who might be really great. Not sure what I will do.

I honestly am going to just take a spark break for a week and see if it helps. Maybe I will feel better after finals.

P.S. don't even dare comment on this post, please. I don't think I could take it right now!

    Sorry for writing a comment, but I really appreciate your honesty. emoticon Venting is good for the soul. Well, that's what I believe. It'd be weird if a person only had good days. Besides venting doesn't only allow you to get what you're feeling off your chest and it provides an opportunity to give and receive support to other members. I like reading both the negative and positive posts. The positive posts give me hope and encourage me to keep going while the negative/venting posts remind me that there are others out there that are struggling just like me; I feel as though I'm not the only one dealing with certain issues. Like Lasskerr has written, "We are given the privilege of being able to look at" your blog and believe me it is much appreciated. Keep writing what's in your heart and on your mind. It inspires others.

    Again sorry for commenting and I wish you well on accomplishing your goals. emoticon

    (sorry, I do understand that you asked us not to post on your blog but I felt like this deserved a comment....if i hurt you in any way I appologize in advance!)

    You DO NOT alwyays have to post postivley. life isn't postitive. Vent if you want to vent, yell if you feel like yelling, pout, whine, cry, and get it out! Do not edit your spark page for anyone, it is for you. We are given the privlage of being able to look at it. Life is tough and although spark people is a weight loss site it is about remaking ourselves. Learning to let things out took me a long time. Learning to not sensor my feelings took me awhile on this page. Don't sensor yourself, life doesn't deserve to be sensored and you deserve a place where you can truly be you. I will be honest, encouraging, caring, and supportive no matter what you have to say.
