Healthy Inspiration from SparkPeople

Motivational Quote - A great pleasure in life is doing something that other people say you cannot do.

SparkPeople's Comments

There will always be people who will try to sabotage your weight-loss efforts. They might tell you you won't be able to do it, or that it's not worth it. But don't let their harsh words get you down; use them to motivate you to be better. The satisfaction you'll achieve when you prove those people wrong will leave you feeling on top of the world!

This applies to me. Everyone thinks --There she goes again, how many times is this now? People around me do not want me to succeed, except my husband. My sister seems to think that this is a competition--that she can do better than me. This time I have not told her. It might not be right, but when this virus is over I would like to show up at her house and watch her mouth fall open. Everything in her life is a competition with me. I wish it was different, she has so many successes in her life as do I. I just wish we could just sit down and open up to each other. I have tried. but it is not going to happen. BUT I do love her. I have been becoming healthy for over 20 days now.

My favorite is doing something I think I can't do.

I can't tell you how many times I heard people say that I'd never reach my goal because I'm a snacker. I started to believe it until Spark came along. I'm at goal weight now and those same people say they knew I could do it.

A motto I have lived by. I have been doing things I was told I would not accomplish. Graduate school. Summit in mountains when having cancer treatment. Motivating negativity!

After telling ourself we can not do it, others are the greater roadblock.
