First a person begins their journey into a new way of eating. A new way of doing things, exercising or walking more. Then they become happy as they see themselves lose weight and inches from places that they once hid for the sight of others, now they show in pictures proudly. As they should, its hard work losing weight, changing ones appearance.

Second what happens when you get tired of eating in the new way, when you have no support around you, when sadness and the loneliness starts to haunt you every minute. Even your new look doesn't seem to please you anymore. Shattered glass as you break that mirror in anger. Is it the depression, loneliness, or ones own insecurities that can bring a person to this point. I have been here too many times to count. Down and up again my weight goes, health does the same. I still fight within myself to regain that stable balance to continue on into a healthy weight. Only to find myself binging once I get there, slacking off again on exercising. Not this time, I made a promise to myself I will get to that goal weight and stay there by trying to overcome my shyness and at the very least get online support.

Third, I see people on this sight so friendly, happy and with so much determination. I want that for myself as well. That motivation that sparks you. Can you help me get that?

    You need to know that you are definitely not alone in this problem! I am also guilty of falling to the beast of anger, allowing many, many pounds to creep back where they left from! You are super capable of losing those unwanted pounds!! Let me offer my support!

    Welcome to Spark!

    I am a shy person also; I joined Spark a little over 7 years ago, and by blogging, and getting to know people here through my teams, that has helped me to come out of my shell a bit; not only online, but offline too.

    It's the friendships and the support that have kept me here all these years.
