Merry Meet Fellow Sparkpeople Users!
I have tried everything, Sparkpeople included, to lose weight and in the end - even if I succeeded at first I ended up losing focus and gaining it all back, usually plus some extra.
This time when I resigned for Sparkpeople, I searched for groups that I might like and also searched in the spirituality section. I found a team called In the Presence of the Ancients there and upon browsing found a post by CMCRISWELL talking about her online school for Wiccans. I was already interested in Paganism some years ago, but never found a good source online and didn't dare to search here in Germany, partly due to my lack of money and then also because I was afraid of fraud.
At her school I finally found what I had been lacking before. I found my path. Okay, I am still working on finding my path, but I found a place I can call home in my spiritual journey and this also prompted my newest attempt at weight loss.
This may sound negative, but it isn't intended to be. It is just a very slow process, changing habits, making new and healthy choices. I recently became a vegetarian, although I do eat fish at times, like in Wicca, I am choosing my own way and will do what works best for me.
My biggest problems have always been soda and chocolate. So now, I am trying to kick both to the curb. And Wicca is helping me with that. I hope you will accompany me through my magickal weight loss journey, just don't expect any miracles, rather hard work and dedication, because that is what has been missing these last few tries...dedication!
