Take the Weight Loss Expectations Quiz

Scored 11 out of 12 so its nice to know am going about this weight loss journey with a positive plan and view. No.11 is a little grey, I think. I interact with Spark each day but most of actual discussion of dieting and sharing what I have learned is thru my family of sister/sisters-of-my-heart so feel as though I really scored a 12. Report

Scored 12. I really have fome a long way. Report
Scored an 8. I disagree that each of these scenarios are always true.

"For example, a zero on Question 11 (you don’t talk to others when you have trouble sticking to your plan) may indicate that you tend to keep problems to yourself, which can add even more stress to the difficulties you are already having.

Scoring zero on Question 8 (believing you can lose weight successfully without slipping up) may mean that you are unrealistically expecting perfection. Slip-ups are inevitable, but they also help you learn from your experience. Expecting to be perfect creates more stress when things don’t turn out as desired. Plus, you will learn less about what does and does not work for you in different circumstances."

If you are introverted and an empath often talking to others can lead you to doing this weight loss thign for the WRONG reasons, this has happened to me before. Over all I think this test was pretty well done, but certainly not perfect. It brings to light issues we need to be aware of, but more detail is needed. If you are looking at this just keep searching always, never give up. You have it in YOU to make this happen. And some people do not have supportive friends to go to anyway. That is OK, you can still do this thing. You can. you are stronger than you think.

I have so much more I could say, just know I love to hear from others who need to talk, even if it is just once. I have been 3 years getting to where I am now and I am still losing weight. We are all different, and yes I agree with "bigcurvygirl" that sometimes weight loss will solve other issues in a person's life. What those are varies person to person. But either way we heal from the INSIDE out whether it is physical or emotional we do. And we all can do it. We can.

Stay strong fellow sparkers! Report
