I need to give a shout out to the team that has helped me through so much and the friends I have made who have supported me even on the bad days... my AR Chics!! Thank you for helping me get to this part of my life. I look forward to hearing from them everyday it really helps keep me going! I am so thankful I have a great support team behind me to help me make the much needed changes in my life!! You ladies are my rock! THANK YOU!!

(Jan-09) I have done a lot of reflecting lately over the last year on Spark. When I started this journey all I wanted to do was get the weight off. I had an idea of what I wanted to do to get there, but now I look back and I didn't have a clue.

I asked myself 'how bad do you really want this and what are you going to do to make it happen?' I started off last year with weight loss in mind. I started exercising consistently, eating better, and found support thanks to my friends on SP. After a while my weight loss stopped and started going the other way! I knew where the problem was... I had started eating unhealthy things again. Not all the time, but I would tell myself oh this time is ok, and this time, and this time... I was still getting my cardio in most days, but I wasn't pushing myself to improve anymore.

Before Thanksgiving I sat down to think about the last year and asked myself how can you go from losing strong to gaining again?!?! What needs to happen? How are you going to make yourself actually reach the goal this time?

At that point I realized I hadn't actually accepted the whole "you actually have to make this change for life thing".

I have wanted it for a long time, but never would completely commit. It was almost like the light bulb went off at that moment. I DO want it and I AM willing to do what it takes to get healthy. Granted it did take me a while to get to that point, but no one decided in 1 night... hey I want to be overweight and unhealthy, right? Once you accept yourself and stop making excuses things tend to get a little easier. Not to say it isn't a long road, but it is a commitment and if you aren't willing to give it everything, you are selling yourself short.

I will no longer treat my body like it is the CITY DUMP! Junk is exactly what it is JUNK!
