New Year, New Diet Enthusiasm
Sunday, December 27, 2015
I just thought I'd write about new diets as we kick off 2016. I think that when most people start a new way of eating they are very excited about it and want to shout about it from the rooftops especially when that way of eating helps them lose weight and makes them feel better physically and better about themselves emotionally.
We often think everyone should switch to our way of eating because we feel so good. Often that will cause us to overstate our case in forums like these. Unintentionally offending people in our zeal to make everyone feel better like we do.
I myself am guilty of this and in my frustration a few years back I left spark for a while and when I came back I wrote this mantra.
"Back on Spark. Focusing on personal development and continuing my education. Not everyone here is going to agree with me and that's okay. It's not up to me change people's minds. All I can do is tell my truth and hope to help someone along the way. Hopefully my results will speak for themselves."
I have to remind myself of this from time to time.
Happy New Year Everyone!
