Teamwork, Not Slavery

I'm facing the fact that I have to adjust to my body instead of making my body adjust to my dictatorship. If I jump into weight loss without a plan I use the rest of my life, I only find myself starting over and over and over..... This time I am taking things slower, and I'm not letting frustration get the best of me when my schedule is interrupted for a day or even a week at a time. Instead, I'm trying to learn from the experience and see what does or doesn't work. So far I'm seeing more ...

Instead, I'm trying to learn from the experience and see what does or doesn't work. So far I'm seeing more success and less frustration.

I have been playing with weight loss since I joined Spark People in the summer of 2007. During this time, I have had periods of success and periods of failure. I have found that too often I let other activities steer me away from the healthy patterns that I need to be successful at getting the weight off and keeping it off.

With the support of my family and Spark Friends, I can do this!!!!

Great ideas for quick meals on my blog this morning. Thanks a bunch! I've been on and off SP over the years. I started fresh this time and hope to ingrain good habits. It takes a bit of dedication and vigilance...as you well know.

Thanks again! emoticon

Hi, thanks for your comment on my blog. I see you've been a member since 2007. I first joined in 2009, but dropped out and came back. I guess we all have to cheer each other on to avoid the "slippages"!

Awww! Thanks for commenting on my blog. I've "played weight loss" and fairly successfully for a while... but my weight found me again. I'm back at healthy living again.... taking it one week at a time, which is very manageable! I'll see you on the boards! I love your profile pic! Did you make the outfit? I LOVE that shirring!
