AMETHYSTD is a SparkPeople Motivator!
The failure isn't over confidence or lack of desire. My failure is in comparing myself to another me.
We are changing creatures who have very little in common with our past selves. Beyond a memory that links our metamorphosis day by day, our cells grow and die until we are entirely new beings. Our tastes evolve, our reasoning influenced, the people and habits we visit daily inevitably change. Why should we expect something that worked (or didn't) years ago to be exactly the same now?
Every day is new and with it an attempt to be the best me I can be.
If I get down to my goal weight, I'll cheer. If I lose one pound, I'll celebrate. If I stay the same size and tried my best, I'll be happy.
To reach my goal weight (160 pounds).
Be a good example to my child of an active adult, eating well, and balancing work and life healthfully.
To explore the world.
To stretch my abilities.
I'm eating healthier, making my own meals, exercising through activities I love and using every chance to make smarter and wiser choices.
ie. more homemade, eating fresher organic foods, walking and biking, deciding on activity over inactivity.

Seasons Greetings to you! I thought I'd start my holiday festivities this year with a quote for the season and the true meaning. I have some up holidays stuff up my sleeve coming soon. Trust me, it'll be fun.
"Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas." (Calvin Coolidge)

Happy Thanksgiving my friend! Enjoy the day with your loved ones. I'm thankful for having special people like you in my life.
Thanksgiving Friends (Joanna Fuchs)
Thanksgiving is a time
For reviewing what we treasure,
The people we hold dear,
Who give us so much pleasure.
Without you as my friend,
Life would be a bore;
Having you in my life
Is what Iím thankful for.
