Beck Trek - Chapter 5 - Day 6 - Find a Diet Coach

Wednesday, September 02, 2015

Why is it so hard to ask for help? It's not admitting failure. It's just saying "This journey is hard and having someone to talk to while I go through it will help me be successful."
My coach is NVDONNA. I'm her coach too. We've been sparkfriends since we both lost 60 pounds in 2008, and face friends since we met up in Vegas and celebrated our accomplishment that same year.
She gets this journey. She knows the havoc sabotaging thoughts can have on progress.
Most of all, she gets me. She knows when I need a hug...and when I need a kick in the pants.

We text nearly every day. She is positive, good at problem solving, truly supportive, motivating and proud of me. I know she is there for me.

    I am the lucky one to have such a motivated and inspiring coach on my side. I couldn't do this without you. You keep me focused and positve and kick me in the pants when needed. I am so very proud of you. I'm proud of us!

    I have a gal here on SPARKS that I can rely on also. We were suppose to meet up last year but MY LIFE got in our way.

    I have followed you & Donna since back then, when you two were on your mission & then did the Vegas trip with hubbys. (jealous faced) Oh, I wish I could get THAT spark that you girls had. You guys were fun & inspiring.

    Or I wish I had the Spark from the first time I went to WW and worked to my goal back in 1998.

    Continued success to you both!
    Keep inspiring people here who follow...

    That is great! You two are a formidable pair. Let the pounds beware. I am really glad you went this route. Thought maybe you might not ask someone because you are so wonderful at helping others but maybe not at asking for help.

    Working well for both of you! Love the "buddy" approach as opposed to the more hierarchical "coach"!!

    Having a like minded buddy is worth its weight in gold!
