Happy Wednesday

Wednesday, July 14, 2010

Today a friend at work asked me what keeps me motivated....most times I give a long answer as I love to talk about all I have accomplished ...but this time I handed her a Sparkpeople card....she asked what is this...this is motivation for free....use as much or as little of the program as you much do you really want to be healthy.....
she replied Oh no I just want to loose weight......oh I see I said, well good luck and I walked away...I just did not have the words to explain, it's not about JUST loosing weight .....

I'm hoping one day she will decide to want to get healthy and live a healthy life style...
as we all know anyone can loose the weight , it's keeping it off and we know that living a healthy life style is the ONLY way it will stay off..

Have a healthy Thursday

    Very true Kitt! I love spreading the spark! Not everyone joins (not nearly everyone, LOL), but those that do are in awe of the site and resources available. Great answer and so true..

    I agree. Dieting will not do it. She asked - and you told her.
    Where, by the way, did you get a Spark People card?

    Good for you, Kitt. Hopefully, she will check out the website and learn that it's just not about loosing weight.

    Excellent response, Kitt. People have to learn that it's more than just losing weight, that it's about a lifestyle change. I don't see that revelation hitting the majority of the population anytime soon, however. It's like those of us here have learned a big secret. Too funny!
