This is my dog, Sammy. He passed away on July 29, 2013. He was blind, deaf, and my heart.

And we never even know we have the key...

I've been here since 2007. In that time, I've gained 30 some-odd pounds. It's not SparkPeople's fault; it's all mine. I have been pretty consistent about tracking over the course of the whole time--both nutrition and fitness. But that's all I did was track. I didn't look at my numbers or plan in advance or build any sort of consistency...unless you're talking about consistently going over in my nutrition numbers and under in my fitness numbers!

I'm very frustrated, but it's dawned ...

I'm very frustrated, but it's dawned on me. I have this amazing program at my fingertips, and I don't use it as it's supposed to be used! No wonder it hasn't worked! I've wasted so much time, being thoughtless and careless with this program, watching as other people have had success after success, and all I have to show for it is three clothing sizes higher than I started out with!

Well, no more.

I am following this program. I am going to do it mindfully. I am going to see it through, and gosh darn it, it is going to work.

“Have you started already? Keep it up! Are you getting tired? Don't give up! Did you quit? You can start again! Great accomplishments do not come with big steps; they come with little steps taken in regular installments! Do it and do it again and again!”

"Your body is not an enemy to be conquered and wrestled into submission.
Eat well and exercise because you deserve to be strong and healthy.
Self hate is poor motivation.
Be patient and kind to yourself, for that will carry you through discouragement and frustration."

"Making changes in your life is never an easy task.
The key, however, is not to get caught up in the distance you have to go to get to where you want to be.
Nor should you despair over the amount of control you have over your circumstances.
Progress is made in the small, intentional steps, and chances are, you have more power than you think.
By focusing on little steps you can take every day, the progress you make will motivate you to continue your journey, and eventually,
you can go wherever you want to go. The important thing is simply to begin."
