Saying Goodbye :(

Thursday, May 02, 2013

After much thought I have decided that I am going to be done with Sparkpeople. It was a tough decision, but I feel it is the best for me, so today will be my last day on here. I love the people that I met and the people that I became close with but I always feel like a failure. There will be moments when I am extremely active on here, but then there are moments that I just stop talking to people and stop participating in anything. The reason being, is because I will have a bad week with food/exercise and then have a hard time fully committing myself again. I already feel like a failure to myself, I do not want the feeling of others thinking I am a failure also. I already get a bunch of "you can't do it again" comments here at home, I definitely do not need it here. I am not saying that anyone has personally said it to me, but when I start thinking bad about myself then I start thinking that others are thinking the same things about me.
I am not giving up on the weight loss, but I am going to 100% concentrate on myself. I hate the moments when I tell people how good I am doing and then a week or 2 later I am telling them how badly I am struggling.
I wish everyone the best of luck with their weight loss STAY STRONG and do not give up!

    My beautiful Angela,

    Life is always full of moments where we need to take a step back and focus on ourselves before we can help others.

Please feel free to message me your number or just even email address I would love to catch up with you and keep in contact with you. You are never alone, people here on Spark want to help you succeed not watch you fall, and if you do start to feel like you are falling let us know, we will be there catching you!

    I'm sorry to hear you are leaving, but you've gotta do what's best for you. I'll miss you! Maybe I'll see you around on facebook.

    I'm sorry to hear you're leaving. I'm struggling too. I like the idea of not deleting your profile entirely ... just take a break. Whatever happens, good luck to you.

    I agree with LOVINGAFRICA. No one will blame you for stepping away from SP, but don't get rid of your account altogether. There will be plenty of people here to support you if and when you decide to come back.

    We are all coping with the ups and downs, all the time!
    The best thing about SPARK is that it is always here if you need it. Don't close your page. You can always come back if you want to.

    I find with myself that the times that I'm struggling are the times that I go 'into hiding' and stop tracking and working out as much. I know when I track and am here and feed off of the energy of others, and know there are a group of people that have their successes and challenges, and are trying to eat healthy and bust their butts with exercise- then I'm successful.

    You have to find what works for you, and the support that works for you. I wish you all the success in the world!

    Sorry to hear you are leaving. I wish you the best of luck in life and hope that you find the support you need away from your family.

    Sorry to hear that you're giving up on Sparkpeople. We all have ups and downs, please don't let that discourage you. Unfortunately, our family and friends aren't the best support.
