Today I want to talk a bit about one of our inspiring users - myown from Plano, Texas.
She joined the loopchange community just about 3 weeks ago and has just successfully completed her first 21 day mission (congratulations!). That first mission, she chose to "let physical hunger guide eating." She (like most of us probably) tended to eat beyond the point that she was satisfied, either by going back for seconds or thirds just for the sake of eating, or by snacking for no reason. Basically she wanted to put an end to the "stuffed and bloated" feeling she was often experiencing.
As she was working on that mission a very neat thing happened. She began to read the other missions on the site. She began to connect with the other users and she began to spend a bit of time each day encouraging the other loopchangers in their missions. She shared her experiences when she had something to share and she gave encouraging words freely. She joined the community and pretty much overnight, she became a valued, contributing member who shared he fears and struggles and made a very real impact on the lives (and missions) of those around her.
Since that day three weeks ago, myown has come up with her own way to use the site. She has started two more missions on the site and is actively working to improve herself by knocking out one bad/unnecessary behavior after another (Exercise 10 minutes a day every day and Three weeks without junk food). She is taking control of her life and it is incredibly inspiring to witness. Just imagine what she will accomplish this year if she keeps this pace up! She'll be an entirely different person in 2013 than she is here at the beginning of 2012.
So there you have it. Come see what other folks are doing. Get inspired. Start doing something yourself. Yes January is gone, but don't let that dissuade you! myown is DOING it. Others are DOING it. You can do it too.
