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!!

    Oh Susie! I bet your weight loss was noticed. I find when I am successful, many people stay silent because my success reminds them of their “unsuccess”. Success is in everyone’s reach, but not all go for it like you did!! Congratulations on your weight loss and maintenance. You are an inspiration.

    I definitely 2nd your opinion . . . . I was initially aiming for weight loss and was disappointed when it wasn't initially noticed and didn't happen as quickly as I wanted. BUT then I changed my focus to a healthy lifestyle and began to realize the change that were happening inside and outside. Wonderful feeling.

    HUGS and good job!!
