Hello from Costa Rica!

I've found three constants in my journey to losing weight:
1. It's all up to you, nobody else.
2. Calories-in HAVE to be less than calories-out.

I was unable to get the motivation and determination (the big push) necessary to embrace and enjoy a complete change in my lifestyle seriously, until I got into these challenges. I was always procrastinating the big start. I am extremely happy I've found invaluable friends along this lifelong journey here at SP.

I seem to have wanted to taste all the "once a year" things too. Although I've done more than just taste. Yikes.

Hope you're having a good Saturday!

Just stopping by with a quote for you for today and the new year. It sounds like a good mantra for the coming year.

"Your body can do anything. Itís just your brain you have to convince."

Have a Super Saturday! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
