Sad but… We Must Never Give Up
Thursday, June 10, 2021
Spark Spirit, all! Yes, we are sad, some angry, frustrated, emotions running around like crazy. I’m deeply saddened by losing the one thing that worked for me- a community to support me. I know Chris Downie, SparkGuy, is a man of integrity and really cares. He must have a really good reason for changing SparkPeople.
So what about us? Do we give up and throw an eating tantrum? I did for a few days, then I asked myself how getting fatter was helping anything. It wasn’t. It would reverse me back to bedridden and 460 pounds and a miserable life.
I like my new life at 228 and want to go further, so I won’t give up. Neither should you! Think of all the things you want for your life. Write them down and be as detailed as possible. Keep that list handy. Look at it daily. Make mantras about how you’ll get there. Plan ahead. Make it more about what you do than don’t do.
We got this!
