When everything feels like an uphill struggle, just think of the view from the top.

When you see a person on a mountain top, just remember they did not fall there!

Thanks SparkPeople for getting me off the endless yo-yo rollercoaster. 8+ years and counting.

Thanks SparkPeople for getting me off the endless yo-yo rollercoaster. 8+ years and counting.

I started my SparkJourney in March 2007 when I was 10 lbs away from my goal weight.

Prior to finding SP I had lost 30 lbs doing WW online but was unable to lose the last 10.

After 6 years of fine-tuning, trial and error I finally reached my ultimate weight goal in early 2013, and am now maintaining within a +/- 3% radius.

I'm hanging out and hanging in, still fine-tuning as I go. Maintenance does not mean you have it all figured out...

In the spring of 2012 I rediscovered hiking. It has become my passion. Okay, I'm obsessed. There is peace on the trail. It soothes my soul. And it builds some really mean leg muscle :)

Thanks for your comment on my 4" to 6" of snow on May 19th. The weather in a lot of the country has been strange. Next week the weather is supposed to go back to normal.

Historically, the road up Mount Evans is supposed to be open on Memorial Day. At 14,164 feet, this is the highest paved road in North America.

There is no way that the Colorado Department of Transportation can plow through 40 feet of snow. Open is delayed with no estimated of when the snow will be cleared.

And snow continues to fall.

The runoff is causing flooding, which will only gets worse as the weather warms.

Rain in May where you live is rare. Sunny Colorado is socked-in under a blanket of clouds.

I hope nice weather returns soon.

Thanks, Bruce

"Direct yourself, consistently and persistently, toward the places, situations, experiences, people and results that you wish to have in your life. You have more than enough energy, opportunities and ability, when focused in a specific direction, to achieve whatever you choose. So choose to choose. Decide how your life will be, this hour, this day, this year, this century, and live the true richness of making it happen."

“Not to give up under any circumstances should be the motto of our life: we shall try again and again, and we are bound to succeed. There will be obstacles, but we have to defy them. So do not give up, do not give up!
Continue, continue! The goal is ahead of you. If you do not give up, you are bound to reach your destined goal.”

I see that my blog and some other blogs maybe triggered a strong negative reaction in you - as you said yourself as comment on my blog "What other people think of me is none of my business".
In my feeling, I did not write a negative blog and my attitude at the moment is very positive! I am re-taking control over my food intake, which I had lost for a while.
Sorry if it gave you the feeling of negativity and thank you for cheering me on and making me think more!
