, .... " S " is for SHARING

Wednesday, October 21, 2015



ONE of the BEST THINGS I love about " Sparkpeople " is the SHARING part that comes with the JOURNEY we are ALL taking.

As I " log into " MY PAGE , everyday, I am always sooo " encouraged " by ALL the
" conversations " that have taken place since the last time I logged in.
People " helping each other " , People seeking HELP, .... the times of everyone " writing THEIR JOURNEY " , Recipes, ..... and the list goes on and on .
I would never be where I am , today , here on Sparkpeople , if it were not for THIS " S." ;)

But, here at my house, in " my little corner of the world " , their is a different KIND of
" sharing " that is going on and has gone on.
Even though I have a daughter and son and daughter-in-law that are ALL " on a healthy JOURNEY " , too , they don't use Sparkpeople , sooo each of you can't see what THEIR ROAD is like !

But, we ALL " SHARE " , too , among ourselves.
The most favorite thing that happened among us is the way we get to SHARE FOOD IDEAS , .... introduce the other person to ( recipes, low-fat snacks ( food ) , etc. and we ENCOURAGE " each other " by passing our clothes onto each other when one of us loses weight and can actually SHED the " BIGGER CLOTHES. " !

My daughter started after I did and she said the BEST thing I did for her was to
" acknowledge her PROGRESS " in losing weight ( encourage her ) and to GIVE her some " smaller jeans, etc. " to try on and keep for herself, so she could actually SEE that her body had gotten smaller.
I did something of the SAME THING with my son and daughter-in-law. ;)

And , of course, .....THIS did some of the " best things " in the world for me, while I SHARED with them, because it " encouraged my heart " , to see the progress on my side , gave me some more GOALS to shoot for and I LOVED " helping them " , BOOST their hearts a little.

So , I think " S " is probably my favorite letter in the alphabet because of :
1. SparkPeople
2. SHARING

I certainly hope this finds YOU " encouraged " , today and that you will look for YOUR OWN " favorite letter " that can be the STORY of YOU " to tell " to others.

Have a wonderful day in the Lord and I hope each of you will LOOK AHEAD " down the road "
with JOY , today !

    I feel the same about SP and the sharing/ caring community of friends I find on here. I am a faithful logger - I was so upset that about 100 days ago, somehow, and I don't know how, I broke my 465 day login streak! I'm working on a new one again! I have met sooooo many wonderful people that I now call friends, and even though we haven't met, I feel as though I have known them as if they were right next door.

    I love your blog this is very insightful to so many people. S is definitely going to be my favorite letter from now on. So many wonderful words come from it -
    Sharing
    Spark
    Success

    This is so cool! I actually did the same thing, but to one new found friend and many others, who I have never met, when I passed all of my clothes on. Yes, indeed, it's such a rush to know that you're able to share and help someone out by giving them something new, to them, to wear, that actually fits. It gives my spirit such a rush, as I'm giving items out of my abundance to those who are in need. God thank you for the Sharing word not only in items, but in spirit, love, grace, unmerited favor, and your peace that passes all understanding! Thank You, Lord for equipping us!

    Blessings!

    I just had to " comment " BACK WITH YA'LL.

    As of today , I have an EVEN " 25 pounds " GONE and I have exactly 13 pounds to go before I reach MAINTENANCE. !! Woo Hoo ;)

    Not only that , two more things :
    For the second day in a row, I have gone to my closet and " reworked my clothes " ....getting rid of the ones that DRAG ME DOWN , keeping the ones that " motivate me " and that I still am working on getting into and then, SHARING the ones with my daughter that will ENCOURAGE her to KEEP GOING !

    This morning she called me and said , .... Mom , I absolutely LOVE the " jeans " that you just shared with me.

    So, ..... let's keep SHARING " OURSELVES " with each other , along and along.

    Great blog! I am also encouraged by the continuous committed Sparkers. I love it. SP is a wonderful community of people with generally the same goal and I love it. I am happy for your daughter too, son and daughter in law!

    That was one of the first things I experienced when I joined SP in 2010, and CONTINUE to experience daily 5 yrs. later.

    Having done other weight loss journeys in the past, THIS one has been totally successful for me.
