Now... FIGHT

I'm Julia (formerly 2ys4you) and I live in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

I have been on and off the Spark wagon since joining in 2007, and since then I have both lost and gained weight, but I have never given up! For me, that is the most important thing!

I always seem to come back to Spark, so it must be helping me to do SOMETHING right!

______________________

The plan which is currently working for me:

1. If it's crap, don't bring it in the house. Period.

2. Exercise. At least 5 days per week. (You know you CAN do it.) Work it hard, and as long as you possibly can as often as possible.

3. Drink LOTS of water. Even when you don't feel thirsty. You KNOW it's good for you.

4. Be accountable. To someone... ANYONE. SP friends, family members, friends, whoever. Just tell someone. Good OR bad.

5. Be supportive to those people listed above :) Providing support to others in fact provides support to yourself without you even realizing it.

That's it!

My Goals:
Be at a healthy weight into my 30s and for the rest of my life!

Become a healthier person.

Make exercise a daily priority and find ways to incorporate exercise into my everyday life.

Be aware of the food I'm putting in my body. Food is supposed to be FUEL, not a free-for-all!

Take an active role in the way I look and feel.

I have to lose about 60lbs to be at a healthy BMI. I'll see what happens once I get there.

My Program:
Eat more fruits & veggies & Whole Grains.

Do ANYTHING to become more and stay active

Oh... and drink lots of water :)

GOAL #1 is to get under 200lbs and STAY THERE.

Personal Information:
My name is Julia and I live in Montreal, Qc, Canada. I have around 60lbs to lose to be at a healthy BMI.

Other Information:
RE-Starting Weight: 245 (January 7, 2012)

"Many things are simply not going to happen with just one, or three, or even a dozen attempts. Yet anything becomes possible with enough persistence.
Keep going, and allow your efforts to build upon one another. Keep going, and transform the disappointments into achievements.
You have what it takes to keep going, because all it ever takes is just one more step forward.
Keep going, and work your way steadily to the richest rewards you can imagine."
-- Ralph Marston

“The difference between stepping stones and stumbling blocks is not in the event itself but how you think about it and what you do after it.
Every failure and setback can become part of your success or an excuse for quitting or failing.
People who develop the discipline of positivity are both happier and more successful."
-Michael Josephson

Just dropping by to say hello, Sparkfriend! Remember, you don't have to be perfect on this journey in order to make progress! As long as you keep trying...and never quit...you are already a success! Keep doing your best, because you are worth the effort!

"Part of abandoning the all-or-nothing mentality is allowing yourself room for setbacks.
We are bound to have lapses on the road to health and wellness, but it is critical that we learn how to handle small failures positively so that we can minimize their long-term destructive effects.
One setback is one setback—it is not the end of the world, nor is it the end of your journey toward a better you.”
-Jillian Michaels

"It is rewarding to find someone you like, but it is essential to like yourself.
It is quickening to recognize that someone is a good and decent human being, but it is indispensable to view yourself as acceptable.
It is a delight to discover people who are worthy of respect and admiration and love, but it is vital to believe yourself deserving of these things."
~Jo Coudert

"My invitation to you is to begin living every moment as though you are miraculous and deserve to live an extraordinary life.
Fake it if you must and keep faking it until it’s real to you. The gift you will be giving yourself is a lifelong journey of discovery, one that is infinite and infinitely rewarding. Begin the journey. Today. This moment. Now."
-Robert White

"One of the most difficult parts of changing how you live and how you eat is believing that change is possible.
We all say we believe that, but many of us, deep down in our hearts believe that it's possible for other people, but not for us.
That other people can do it, that the glowy warm life we imagine is for other people, not for us.
We have an unconscious belief that we can't do it, it's hopeless, and so, on some level, we stop making an effort.
We lapse into the way it always was or is. But change really is possible.
And it really does take a fierce kind of longing, and a fierce kind of love for yourself.
For the life you know is possible. Ask yourself what you love most of all.
Do you love your life? And are you willing to take action on your own behalf?"
-Geneen Roth

TGIF, Sparkfriend! I hope your week was a good one and that you're ready for a fit, fun and fantastically healthy weekend! Keep your goals in mind and keep taking steps towards them. Remind yourself that you are capable...and love yourself enough to know that you are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie
