Success must be felt
on the inside
Before it can be seen on the outside!
(unable to get the meme to show.)
After I finished doing Spark Coach I saw this meme. I thought back to the first year in sparkpeople and realized that just because I had lost (never to regain) 75 lbs and NOBODY had even noticed that I had lost any weight I was not yet successful! Hmmm, life can be a biotch sometimes. What I didn't realize was that from day one on spark I had started using the tools that I was given and was changing my life in the process! From day 1 I never doubted that I would lose most of my excess weight. I had decided that the spark coaches knew everything and I knew nothing. The funny part is that I had heard most of these things from my own mother but refused to believe she knew anything! (What a brat I was)
Anyway, this meme is so true! I did learn that just because my family or friends didn't notice my weight loss didn't mean I wasn't successful. I am not perfect! I stumble and take an occasional step back but am right back on track the next meal. Woo Hoo Spark People!!
