(Blog about why I joined SP, what motivates me and how I will stay focused to reach my goal) 5 pts
If I have to be honest.....blogging is not one of my strong ponts but since this is the challenge for the day......well here it goes.
Why I joined SP? Two years ago....my father, mother, my sister and me made a New Year's resolution to lose weight. My father even offered to buy my sister and me a new wardrobe if we got to our "goal weight". I have never been good at sticking to a diet...I have tried different quick fix pills, First Place, among many other things but NOTHING. My sister had found SP while searching for diets on the web and she showed me. SP has been my somewhat "CONSTANT" companion now for two years. I lost down to my goal weight by the end of the year and I have now been working on maintaining. I have GOOD moments and I have lots of BAD moments but I know what I need to do now. WHY DID I JOIN? well of course - it was to lose weight and to GAIN ME BACK!!!!!
What motivates me? - this is a no brainer......I am motivated every week when someone tells me how good I look and how great it is that I have been able to keep it off. Every once and awhile LIFE HAPPENS and I get a LITTLE side tracked but then CHALLENGES like these come along. I believe the challenges help me in a big way - Do I like being accountable? no - but it helps....Do I like tracking? no - but it helps....Do I like blogging? no - but sometimes it is good for me.
How will I stay focused??????? I will stay focused by doing challenges like this one.
THANKS SP and ALL OF MY SPARK FRIENDS!!!!!
