Getting "over it" and moving on

Saturday, December 29, 2007

I've almost entirely stopped entering my food and weighing in. This is exactly how I've failed so many times in the past. Mind you, I'm still sticking to it and it does show, much to my surprise, but in a way, it is good that I can see what has effected this change.

I was doing everything and then, a guy with power came along and told me I read something into a post that wasn't there. Now, maybe the poster wrote something different from what she really meant, but reading and reading between the lines is what I am trained to do as a sociocultural anthropologist. I could have complained about what she posted but instead, I explained what about her post offended me -- and I got slammed for that. That REALLY turned me off on SparkPeople.

But this life changing exercise isn't about them, no matter that they intrude. This is for me, for my life and for the contributions I make, hope to make, and want to continue making -- my sister reminds me that a thug here 'n there doesn't make the whole organization rotten :-) Besides, I am still telling everyone how great SparkPeople is, so I just need to remind myself about folk like that and what ALWAYS happens, eventually.

Happy New Year to me 'n you 'n everyone!! May 2008 be everything a good year can be :-)

    Good for you! Seriously. I'm sorry you had that experience, but I applaud your decision not to allow "them" to interfere with your progress, and enjoyment of the benefits SP has to offer. Flo
