Me too.

Your Spark friend Polly.

Sometimes I can feel depleted and when I do I find hope in this verse I am sharing with you.

Isaiah 40:31

But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

Reading others post on this team is helpful and we are all striving toward the same goals. I don't feel alone. I feel encouraged.

This team is my body buddy. I have tried in the past to enlist family and friends as support for losing weight and for me it does not work. I find it to hinder more than help. Sometimes people around us get jealous of us when we try to improve our lives . Maybe it is because they don't want to change theirs . Not sure , but I have learned not to share my goals with them.

I don't know if I will ever use this particular Tool. I find that dealing with other peoples issues around food can trigger mine. And vice versa! Especially with other women. I was taught to be such a perfectionistic jerk about my weight. I am 54 and still unlearning....

I will start on this next week after finishing part 1 of the book.

I feel like this is *so* much support, what a miracle it would be to find all of this in one person!

I do my best to get all of this from my wife, my therapist, my best friend, my dance and yoga students, my teachers, my gym buddy, and my morning pages.

Has anyone lucked into finding the right person for this?

Task
Selecting a Body Buddy
take pen in hand. On the page, as specifically as possible describe what you would hope to find in a Body Buddy. What characteristics do you feel you need? What mixture of kindness, humor, compassion, and accountability is right for you? Some people believe that they need tough love, and indeed, it may be right for them. Others yearn for a more lenient approach, and that can work also. Once you have outlined for yourself what it is you are seeing, ask yourself the next question: Is there anyone in my acquantance who fills the bill? You may sense immediately the perfect partner for you. If you do, fine. Place a phone call, explain what you[re up to, and forge a parnership for yourself. Some of us find no immedite partner springs to mind. This requires prayer, patience, and footwork. Sometimes a partner steps forward from the most unexpected quarters. Marjorie forged a body buddy bond with a younger gay man whom she met through her night school class. Desptie the diffference in their sexes and a thiry-year gap in their ages, they were very compatible, sharing a wry sense of humour and a determination to become more fit. Since both of them were computer gkks, they found it natural to do their check-ins by e-mail. They soon enjoyed a lively correspondence.
In choosing a body Buddy take care to choose someone who is emotionally available, whether by phone, in person or by email. Physical proximity is less important than emotional availability. Choose someone whom you like as well as admire. Remember that the relationship can be intimate, and it is important to pick someone you can trust.

I have joy in my soul and joy in my step. Walk with me! Justyna
