On January 1st JUNEPA, a teammate on my 100 Days of Weight Loss team quoted another Spark member. SISSIE21 had written a blog about the very difficult time she had in 2020.
This is the link for the blog;

These are the quotes cited by JUNEPA:
Having lost weight a few times before with SP, I knew how, it was the "sticking to it no matter what" mentality that I needed to maintain. I was determined this year to learn from my previous mistakes (losing focus, turning to food for emotional support in difficult moments, going into denial and the "I will start again tomorrow" mindset, etc.)
This time it will be different I promised myself! "No matter what" became my mantra.
So 2020 was a difficult year for many of us. It wasn't nearly as difficult for me as it was for SISSIE21 though.....and SHE fought her way through so much adversity and STILL lost over 100 lbs! How awesome is that?
Her blog inspired me and I'll always remember her story but what I vow I will carry with me daily through 2021 is "No Matter What".
Each year I pick a word of the year but this time I struggled making a choice until I read this blog. I don't need a word...I need this phrase, "No Matter What".
No Matter What.........
I will not give up on myself
I will work my eating plan
I will "protect my plan" (Thank you Linda Spangle!)
I will exercise every single day that I can
I will be on SparkPeople daily
I will support my SparkFriends and Teammates
I will continue to learn
I will be stronger and healthier by the end of 2021
Because "NO MATTER WHAT" I am not giving up!
Please read the blog written by SISSIE21. It is Reached My Goal for 2020.
