The only one who can tell you YOU CAN'T is you...

I have been on this journey for a long while now... the journey to be healthy and live a healthier life. During this journey I have discovered that I am a habitual yo-yoer. Gain some, lose some... rinse, repeat.

I have accomplished many health and fitness achievements through out the last 8 years off and on SP during my journey to health and fitness. It seems the one achievement I have not yet been able to obtain is the achievement of understanding that this is a lifestyle ...
I have been on this journey for a long while now... the journey to be healthy and live a healthier life. During this journey I have discovered that I am a habitual yo-yoer. Gain some, lose some... rinse, repeat.

I have accomplished many health and fitness achievements through out the last 8 years off and on SP during my journey to health and fitness. It seems the one achievement I have not yet been able to obtain is the achievement of understanding that this is a lifestyle change and that I cant just reach my goal and then go back to old ways. I know this mentally, but knowing and doing arent the same.

So here I am... ready to learn and understand that I need to make a lifestyle change. Once and for all, I want to achieve that goal weight (or within the realm of healthy and normal BMI) and learn to maintain. I understand that this journey is about balance. I am allowed to indulge as long as I understand its a treat, and treats are only meant to be had every once in a while. I am starting over again. In hopes that this time I will understand what it is to make a healthy lifestyle change and to live a happier healthier life.

Congratulations for getting back on track! It has been over a year since I was last on Spark so I need to get in gear too! When I saw the alert you had posted on my page I had to smile. I'll bet "The Princess" isn't such a little girl any more (smile). Thanks for the push- let's keep in touch!
