Good deal!! We cant be any good for others. if we don't consider ourselves too. And it's not selfish. . it's just reality. So make it a great day, do something, just one little anything that will make you smile.

Thanks! And you have a good point there, we do tend to look after others before looking out for ourselves. I'm going to keep that in the back of my head moving forward.

Sounds like you've had your hands full recently. And I sincerely hope it all works out. But as usual, we look after others before ourselves. It's not a bad thing, but at times I wish there was enough time and energy to take care of me too. I honestly had left this family makeover challenge because I couldn't see how to get into the challenges . . my issue, totally. I hope you can relax a bit, breathe, and take one day at a time. Sometimes I get myself so distracted and upset just anticipating the many 'possibilities.' Gotta live for today, right now. Hang in there . . . and I will check out the site you recommended. 🙃

Good afternoon Spark Friends!

I wanted to take a minute to reach out to each of the clubs Im a moderator for. I joined SparkPeople a few months back and was actively taking the challenges and making friends and accomplishing my weight loss goals. Then a few things started to change in my life. I had to deal with a family crisis, some health complications of my own, and an 8-yr old child who is suffering from yet-to-be-diagnosed health issues. I don't have healthy coping skills, so my Binge Eating Disorder has been taking control a lot and my weight went from 144 lbs back up to 158 lbs. I was so proud of myself; 144 lbs took me out of the obese classification to the overweight classification, so I ate my way right back into obesity. I am realizing that, despite all the chaos in my life right now, I need the support system and accountability that I received by being active on SparkPeople. I also miss the friendships and gamification. :)

Most of the groups Im moderating have been quiet, but quiet or not I would like to see some interactions and friendships forming in here! Id also love to know why you joined this group in the first place, what you get out of it, and what changes you would like to see to improve the group. Id also love to set some team goals that we can work on together. Any input you have would be greatly appreciated.!

Also, who all is familiar with the chat app Discord? I would love to set up a Discord server for each of the groups Im a moderator for. Its free to sign up, and you have your own inbox messages, plus servers about different topics and the ability to voice chat, have a chat room, etc. We could have a voice chat once a week or something like that. Check out Discord, and let me know if there is any interest. :)

Im happy to be back, and I look forward to interacting with you all soon.

Kelly :)
