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 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.

Hello, my new friend. I've been enjoying reading through your blogs about your job, your carpet-chewing puppy (whew--expensive!), and your Facebook troubles, among others. I'm impressed by your never-give-up attitude (always striving for improvement). I look forward to following your progress in the future, and I hope to soon start making some progress of my own! Have a great weekend!

Thanks for the bday wish! I agree, it's weird to post a celebration thread for yourself. Also, I partially forgot. I mean I even forgot to post the daily question -- oops!

I was so touched by your comment on my blog "It's Just Not Right." Thank you so much for reading it and sharing my sorrow. Today, however, I wish you happiness and joy!

"Part of abandoning the all-or-nothing mentality is allowing yourself room for setbacks. We are bound to have lapses on the road to health and wellness, but it is critical that we learn how to handle small failures positively so that we can minimize their long-term destructive effects.
One setback is one setback—it is not the end of the world, nor is it the end of your journey toward a better you.”
-Jillian Michaels
