Don'T Be Embarrassed Or Jealous



With all of our stats here public, it's only natural to feel embarrassment when we stray or jealousy when others post huge weight losses. Everyone is different, and everyone is here to get fit and healthy! Keep it public, stay accountable, celebrate victories, and bolster others' spirits as well.

  • We are all on different paths to the same destination - better health. If you can't be honest here, where can you be? - by FRENCHTOSD
  • This one hits me between the eyes! I changed my weight graph because I was embarrassed! I am thinking this over! - by GRAMMAP1
  • It's kinda like laying all your cards on the table. - by WANNABTHIN53
  • Yes, every day I tell myself that we are all different, our journey and our methods are different, and are what is right for each of us at this time. I am on a path that I believe will be the best for my long-term success, based on my past experiences, personality, life-situation, etc. Oh, how I wish I was losing faster - but for me, right now, this is working, and I can't begrudge anyone else their swifter success! - by XHOOSIERLOSER
  • This is what "getting real" is all about! - by PSHANKEY
  • This is perfect! I still am a little embarrassed to post my weight on my weight loss graph. I put the amount I have lost so far. Maybe someday I will have the courage to just post what I am. It is only a number right! - by RUNNER4LIFE08
  • It was a big step for me to put my weight graph on the public portion of my page. I didn't at first but after I noticed how motivating it was for me to see others who had theirs posted I decided I needed to share. Karvy is absolutely correct in that we are all here for the same reason. Get it out there and be accountable and supportive. - by EMLG11
