So glad to see you back! One foot in front of the other sweetie. You have us (your Spark friends) and your faith on your side. To quote one of my favs..."Those who mind don't matter, and those that matter don't mind. " Dr. Suess 2162 days ago
I echo what the others are saying here. Please don't let unknown nasty people impact how you feel. If you let them under your skin, they've suceeded. Also it makes me sad that you are so stressed you started smoking again. I can relate to stress side tracking your efforts. Maybe try an e-cig to have a go-to when stressed until you break that habit. I use a CE5 (google that, you can get flavors like coca cola etc) and it can help you work on improving your health. The sad thing is when you put yourself out there, there are people who take pleasure in being nasty because somehow it makes them feel better about their own situation but ultimately they don't matter. Don't take their comments as how the world sees you, is what I'm saying. Best of luck. 2164 days ago
Glad to see you back. Were all here for the same reason. Were all trying to loose some weight. And learning a new lifestyle of eating. People out there are so cruel. Some feel a power hurting others. I know one example is my sis lost her cat. Put an add up on lost pets. I can't believe the mean prank calls she got. One said he killed the cat, one said if he didn't get 200 dollars he would kill it, other said its hanging in a tree. I don't see what is on these peoples minds to be so mean. I love watching your videos. I can relate so much cause going thru same thing. The scale just doesn't move any. It sure helps to be here for others support to keep trying.
I just want to say that i think you are beautiful and i know how much those evil people can be on youtube. To stop smoking is really hard. take it one day at a time. i hope you had a wonderful weekend. 2165 days ago
I have just come back to Spark People after a long hiatus (3+ years), and just come across your vlog. You are *Fabulous!* Your commitment to your self, your health, your family - *and* your commitment to help others who share the goal of better health (by vloging your journey lovingly and publicly) are obvious to anyone with eyes to see - *AND* stupendously admirable! *HUGS* You are sacred, no matter what! 2165 days ago
I had very much been enjoying your blogs on youtube, and I am sorry this happened to you! That is one reason I am not brave enough to venture out of Spark to blog or anything. I even get a few aholes on spark, but for the most part this is a safe space... people in general, just ICK Lol. 2165 days ago
Sorry to go through that. People can really suck sometimes. I watched all your YT videos, but never commented. I usually watched them at work in succession while I worked away. Ha ha! You got this, girl! 2166 days ago
I am so sorry that some small person felt the need to do that to you. I try not to let people have that much control over me, but it is so hard! It has taken a lot of years to be secure in myself enough to let it go and know I am doing my best. Can you journal what you eat? I do better with that actually because I hate to try and track everything online-DH and I share a computer-no I Pads or anything here! Anyway just do your best, be good to yourself and eat well.....we are still here in support! 2166 days ago
missed you on sp! sorry about the trolls. Unfortunately they are out there and love to get a rise out of people. Delete and ignore is the best way to go about it. as far as the smoking, no one can tell you what you should or shouldn't do. If you can, try to throw out what you've bought, maybe save a few "emergency" cigarrettes. Sometimes just knowing you have 1 or 2 in case of emergency helps you quit. A friend of mine was able to quit like that. Whenever she felt stressed she would think about her emergency ones and calm down. doesn't work for everyone though. Sorry this happened to you, hope things get better soon! We're here for you on sp!! 2166 days ago
Awww Sweetie, you're back and I do care! You've always been so kind and supportive yourself, so that makes us want to be that back to you. Shame on that person for hurting you! I've gone through that too, and yes, it does hurt badly and deeply, but we have to get past it and go on, because we don't want to make that person feel a victory in something so evil! We can soar above it all and come out a victor!! Hugs to you, Karen 2166 days ago
Nice to see you back. Please don't let a stranger have so much power over you. Some people have very unhappy lives and putting another person down makes their lives seem better to them in their twisted mind. It could just be a teenager doing this as well.
Only the opinions of people you know in real life should matter. Even then, only to a point. Your thoughts and opinions matter most about yourself.
I never follow people on YouTube that were once here (there are many) and only look at these vlogs so I hope to see you here again soon.
I'm so sorry that this person did that to you! But you are better than that. Those ppl that make those kind of comments, don't matter to you. As far as smoking, you have been clean for a week! Find something else to drown your sorrows in, ya know? Like doing your make up or talk to Jacob, or your pastor. 2166 days ago
