My Social (Networking) Life
I'm not going to say that Facebook and Twitter are the main ingredients in my life in terms of losing weight and getting fitter...but they are high up on the list of parties responsible for giving me my motivation. Who would of thought that using social networking sites would help me lose weight and get fit? Crazy, but so true. If it wasn't for Facebook, I wouldn't of been able to set up my Diary of a Mad, Fat Woman page - and wouldn't have the people on there that support me and counting on my support to help them. Every day that I log on and see another person has joined the page, I get a little more spark in my fire to succeed. Every time that someone on the page interacts and answers a question of the day or shares a comment it gives me a rush of adrenaline that tells me "yes, people are watching...people are looking for answers"...and I feel even more blessed that I'm one of the people they are turning to for those answers.
Being that it's summer, I've gotten used to spending about 2+ hours a day online. I have Facebook and Twitter open in my browser ALWAYS and now with the wonderful capability of iPhone apps - I'm able to stay in touch with everyone ALL day EVERY day. Things will have to change a bit once my crazy schedule starts up in a couple of weeks - but I know that I will always have time to check up on what's going on. I know that I will continue to update my FB page, interact with people on Twitter, and update my blog daily....how do I know? Because it's what I do to motivate myself every day.
So, who would of thought that social networking sites helping people lose weight? Crazy, huh?
Well, that's my rambling for today....this switching to shorter posts is going to take some getting used to - but I promise you that the content will get better.
Today's Question of the Day:
How long do you spend visiting social networking sites such as Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, etc. a day, which sites are your favorite, and why?
Till next time. ;)
