My journey has been surprisingly pleasant

Monday, January 14, 2013

I have tried to lose weight many many times in the past. I joined Nutrisystem once and lost a good amount of weight. I did not meet my goal weight and now realize the intent of the program set me up to fail. They did not have specific small goals, just 1 big goal. I later gained the weight basck plus some. I am a 2X participant at SP. The difference this time is that I am more active on the website. Even if I don't know the people on the site, I still draw from many others and feel the encouragement that is given. The small goals that are easily obtainable are awesome in that I feel I am accomplishing something even if the scale is not agreeing with me.

    emoticon ! I always keep the old "A journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step" and the "How do you climb a 24000 foot mountain? By putting one foot in front of the other until you've reached the top" sayings in my mind whenever I try to set goals that are way too lofty for me to reach.

    I hope you'll continue to have a great time here on SP- it's the most supportive community I've ever found.

    I also find that being active on sparkpeople helps a lot with reaching my goals.

    You can do it.
