Today is my anniversary and I have learned the following during my one year on SparkPeople:
1. Losing weight is hard! 2. Being fat is harder! 3. I rather be fit and healthy than fat and unhappy. 4. Giving up is not a good option. 5. Set backs are inevitable. 6. Overcoming setbacks can make your stronger (if it doesn't kill you- just kidding.) 7. Stay in the game long enough and eventually you will hit a plateau. 8. Pushing harder doesn't always yield the best results. 9. Listen to your body and take a break when you need to. 10. Reach out to at least one person everyday on SparkPeople. (Friends or strangers, it doesn't matter.) It helps and keeps me accountable.
Our goal is to make the SparkPeople Community the most positive online community in the world for reaching goals and getting support. In this weekly email, we share an inspiring member post from the millions of posts at SparkPeople each month.
