Challenge: Share your goals with your friends/family

Wednesday, June 07, 2017

Today the sparkcoach challenge is to share your journey with your family and friends. Basically make it public so these people can cheer you on and hold you accountable. No. I wont be doing this. I prefer to keep my journey to myself. I do not want my friends trying to hold me accountable. I know what I am doing, have been doing it all year. I know what works for me, I know what doesn't and sometimes, I indulge in things that are not remotely healthy, because that is how life works, and I do not apologize for it. My well meaning friend recently found out about portion control through Jenny Craig and started losing weight. She had been a pretty big diet failure up to this point and then started questioning me on anything she deemed questionable going into my mouth. I had to ask her to stop. It was trying my patience as she had been not doing well, and all I ever offered her was encouragement and praise for her victories. I do not need a watchdog commenting on what I am doing.
So, I will continue to keep my journey to myself, and share only with you good people. You are on the same journey, and I will cheer each of you on, let the newbies know that their journey will be including some backtracking, and that is normal. But, you know what you need to do, you ask when you don't and only you can embark on your own journey in your own time.
So thanks for the inspiration Sparkcoach, but, I will have to decline sharing my journey with my friends for now.
