Hello all!!
I have been on sparkpeople before, trying so hard to lose weight. I tracked my calories, I exercised for the amount of time I was told to in order to see results, I stressed daily about what I was eating, what I was not eating, what i accidentally ate...sadly to hardly see any weight loss and to work myself up into a bag of emotions. I asked myself constantly "why isn't this working??" "what am I doing wrong?" "how can I eat differently?" I saw all my sparkfriends around me losing weight so easily, why couldn't I?? I got so discouraged, I cancelled my account.

I know now that was not the right thing to do. I missed my friends so much!! I needed them to vent to, to give me advice, and to make me feel good. So I joined again, after having my second child.

Except this time, Its not about losing weight for me. I still have a little baby belly, my hips are bigger than before, and probably won't ever be the same ;-) I am wearing a size bigger than before I got pregnant. But you know what?? Im OK with it!!! Yes...honestly and truly I am. I love my clothes, I actually have FUN doing all sorts of exercise-and i'm not just doing it to burn "x" amount of calories. I love food, and I'm not ashamed or beating myself up over something I ate that is "over" in calories.

Now don't get me wrong...i'm not just eating everything in sight and exercising every now and then. Im making a valiant effort everyday to make healthy choices. I am sure I eat a fruit/ veggie with every meal. Whole grains 95% of the time. LOTS of water!!! green tea. Exercise AT LEAST 5 days a week. Lean meats. But if I want to have a beer (or two) on the weekend, or a nice yummy steak for dinner...by golly it's gonna happen!!! With NO guilt.

I am finally feeling like I'm "ME" If along the way I lose some inches or pounds by eating healthy, drinking my water, and exercising, that's a BONUS!!

My focus is to be happy no matter what size I am. And I hope to help those of you out there who are kicking butt but are having a hard time losing the weight. I just want to say to them...It's really OK!! You are doing SOMETHING!! and that's what counts in making a healthy body.

And I hope with all my being that all my sparkies are doing exactly what they WANT to do to be happy, not what they THINK they should be doing.

*MUWA!!! *

Inspiring quotes for me:

Willpower is a muscle, the more you use it the stronger it gets...
It's not having what you want, it's wanting what you've got
