Bringing It Back For Me

Hello everyone,

My name's Melissa. I've joined Spark People because I feel like I need more ownership and accountability in my life.

In high school I was thin, but not fit. I didn't work out if I didn't have to, and my metabolism made up for the fact that my eating habits were out of control. As time progressed, my body did what all of ours do and stopped being as forgiving with what I was putting into it. It started simply enough. I would gain a few pounds and say to ...
Hello everyone,

My name's Melissa. I've joined Spark People because I feel like I need more ownership and accountability in my life.

In high school I was thin, but not fit. I didn't work out if I didn't have to, and my metabolism made up for the fact that my eating habits were out of control. As time progressed, my body did what all of ours do and stopped being as forgiving with what I was putting into it. It started simply enough. I would gain a few pounds and say to myself "that's alright, I'd NEVER let myself get over 140. If I ever got that close I'd definitely start working out"...then it happened with pant sizes...I was making excuses to let myself get into an unhealthy lifestyle and state of mind.

In the past attempts to break myself out of these habits I've said I was doing this for other people...family, friends, to motivate my coworkers...I have realized that as much as I really do hope that any changes I can make will be motivating to others, I have to do this for ME first.

I hope that through this journey I can rediscover myself, and work towards both an inner calm and an outward confidence that I haven't felt in a very long time.

You sound so much like me. I too have been letting life slip by while I am on the couch getting bigger and bigger. Lets encourage each other to get out there and join in. emoticon

Found this poem while searching for some motivation, hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Anything is Possible
By Unknown

If there was ever a time to dare, to make a difference, to embark on something worth doing, IT IS NOW.
Not for any grand cause, necessarily...
but for something that tugs at your heart, something that's your inspiration, something that's your dream.
You owe it to yourself to make your days here count.
HAVE FUN.
DIG DEEP.
STRETCH.
DREAM BIG.

Know, though, that things worth doing seldom come easy.
There will be good days.
And there will be bad days.
There will be times when you want to turn around, pack it up, and call it quits.
Those times tell you that you are pushing yourself, that you are not afraid to learn by trying.

PERSIST.
Because with an idea, determination, and the right tools, you can do great things.
Let your instincts, your intellect, and your heart, guide you.

TRUST.
Believe in the incredible power of the human mind.
Of doing something that makes a difference.
Of working hard.
Of laughing and hoping.
Of lazy afternoons.
Of lasting friends.
Of all the things that will cross your path this year.
The start of something new brings the hope of something great, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.
