Confession time! I'm an introvert I automatically Isolate to survive people, places and things! But when I am focused and have a goal or something I WANT to achieve I learned long ago I hunger to be around people who are as intentional as I am. It fires me up!
I didn't start out as a community builder. When I look back over the weight loss year of my 3 years on this journey I came to quickly see not only the value of being around others but the truth of how much it contributed to my FOCUS!
Community Focus stirs my focus! Community care causes me to rise up and care! Community presence gives me a place to share, speak, dream and promise all OUT LOUD! That creates this accountability where I will do it, whatever it is, because I don't want to let my community down.
If we were meant to walk out our food addictions and behaviors alone, we'd all be skinny! If we could stick to our daily plans and promises, we'd all be healthy and at a good weight.
Isolation separates You from the basics of belief! We have lost belief in ourselves! Others will inspire us to try again, after all, it's very different trying again with others around you who have broken through the struggle. You see after removing controlling sugars and starches, you breakthrough to a whole new place of being able to use your self control again! Community helps you stay connected to this new way of eating!
Isolation separates you from resources that someone has gotten up and figured out. Half of my problems get fixed just listening to you share your solutions.
Isolation separates you from HOPE! We've lost our hope and that's everything. Community will bring with them hugs, understanding a hope! If they can, so can you!
We have a Men's small group, Women's small group, a church group with 2 more coming and a group that meets in the gym! I've got small ONline groups and Facebook groups. I have a vision of providing a place that's safe and a place that will help you Find Your Food and Find Your Way! We are building a Network of people and place where you can be inspired to take this journey!
