Sticks in a bundle are unbreakable...

December 7 Prompt

Author: Cali Harris @caligater
Prompt: Community. Where have you discovered community, online or otherwise, in 2010? What community would you like to join, create or more deeply connect with in 2011?

Well it has to be the weight loss communities that have consumed 2010. My weight watchers class has been one of the BEST places for me this year. Even though I haven't lost tonnes of weight, without the guidance, support, laughter and tears, I would definitely weigh a lot more than I do now! Sitting in a room with people of all sizes, accepting of who you are and feeling the same about their bodies is a very comforting place. Some have a few pounds to lose, some have 100's to lose but we all share the same goal, the common destination... The online weight loss community has been to quote my friends from that side of the pond... AWESOME... To be sitting at your desk feeling unsure about your journey and for a message to pop in from someone you've never even met, someone who is willing you to the end, someone who is proud of what you have already achieved is wonderful. Henry Ford once said

Coming together is a beginning.
Keeping together is progress.
Working together is success.

When you need support to get to your goal, when you struggle alone and the goal seems too far away.. its the people you surround yourself with who get you there... Both the online weight loss community and the gals at WW are amazing... In 2011 I'd like to push myself back into the social scene with my friends. I've let my weight dictate whether I can go to a concert or movie or, damn it, even for lunch. I've allowed my insecurities and paranoia control my life and I'm fed up with it. I'm fed up! I want my old life back. That's that!


  1. Love it! Keep it up girlie! The benefits of a healthy life FAR outweigh the benefits of that cheeseburger or extra (7) cocktails. Good luck, I'm right there with you!

  2. That's exactly what I said! Weight Watchers! :D

    (I, too, need to think about getting a social life in 2011. It doesn't help that all my friends live hundreds of miles away...)
