I'm goal oriented...
If I set a goal, you can be sure I'll do it.
But... most of the weight loss clinics I've joined in the past,
will tell you that "by April, (or what ever designation they decreed)
you will have reached your weight loss goal" ... as long as you stick to the plan.
Imagine the defeat if you don't lose all the weight by that time.
Now, you are a failure... or so it seems.
Instead of celebrating that load of fat you've actually lost, the
focus was on not making your goal on their time schedule.
With SP, we plod on day by day, encouraging each other,
but it seems to me that most of us are using only one oar in a row boat.
That's me, for sure. It's why I'll never-ever pay for a weight loss program again.
Now, I'm just happy to know I'm eating and exercising in a way that helps me have a
healthier, happier life. I've lost at least 35 lb. and am more aware of what I eat.
I'm so thankful for SparkPeople and all it has to offer. .
