Waiting is so-o-o difficult!

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

Waiting for payday is hard. So is waiting for red lights, waiting in queues at the checkout, waiting for a baby to be born (especially if it's yours!), waiting for a package to arrive, waiting for a doctor dentist appointment...

There is one thing for which we do not have to wait: to get healthy and fit! Oh, maybe for the TOTAL effect of our journey to be accomplished, but we do not have to wait to begin!

All the help, all the tools, all the guidance from experts, all the inspiration, motivation and support we need are RIGHT HERE on our computers on the marvelous site called SparkPeople.com!

It's so simple really, once you are a bit more familiar with the site: track food, water and fitness (move just a bit more at first...), join teams to make friends, get support and help others, too...do a blog now and then and/or a huddle comment. Follow those friends (the ones that seem to want to be followed) to give them the encouragement they need...Ah! there is where the greatest help we get comes from!

I really believe that it is important to give back...to friends, family, our place of employment, our place of worship, our community...even our country. As part of a hymn that you may have sung in church says, "For it is in giving that we receive..." A Course in Miracles teaches the same thing...

So to all those on Spark People...even to those I don't know yet, I wish you the joy, the friendship, the inspiration and the success on your journey to fitness and health that I have found here! May you rejoice in it...and spread it around.

    I do try very hard to remember that I'm being given my "waiting challenges" so I can become more patient!! And I agree wholeheartedly about this sparkpeople site. It's amazing. And it's really amazing to find all the teams on here full of amazing people! Amazing is obviously my word for the day.
