Not Sure Why I'm Even Here
Sunday, June 26, 2016
I have to be honest and say I don't really know why I decided to come back to Spark. I left many months ago. I tried running one of the HUGE groups and really did not enjoy it after a while. Everyone had a nasty comment or an opinion. I got criticized for not giving advice and or not giving people enough personal attention. The community I thought was really good got really bad quickly. As someone who worked full time(crazy hours too like 60 a week AND Traveling) and did not have children, I felt I was being persecuted by stay at home mom's would literally had nothing better to do than criticize me. I tried to do things to help people and then was just treated like ish. I left with a very bad taste in my mouth with a firm pledge NEVER to come back to this nasty cliquish community.
Then, thanks to satan job, I gained the 75 lbs I lost back plus about another 25. Spark is the ONLY thing I have ever did that worked. EVER. Weight Watchers wasn't my style as I would end again end up with people with such dissimilar lifestyles, people would be snarky to me. So back to Sparkpeople again to try.
I don't plan on getting involved with any groups or teams. I want NOTHING to do with that. The community here is just nasty. Just need a place I can track calories and write blogs. The blogs help me work out issues. I don't need words of encouragement or little notes. I just need a place to get stuff out.
So again I try. Maybe since I don't have a job and a manager whom was trying to kill me, I might be able to lose and keep it off.
