"A man who wants something will find a way; a man who doesn't will find an excuse." -Stephen Dolley Jr.

Updated 4/11/2016:

Back in 2006 I started a Spark-journey that had a fabulous ending. I lost 114 lbs, felt healthy and good about my life (because it affected everything, not just the scale or my pants size!) and even decided to gain a little bit of it back on purpose to be healthier. I maintained my new weight for over 3 years and then, little by little, I started paying less attention to my goals. FORTUNATELY, a LOT of the habits and lifestyle changes I made using SparkPeople and my attitude about myself and my weight stuck with me!

Unlike with past weight loss journeys, I haven't "gained it all back and then some." I have gained back more than I would like and more than I intend to let stay with me, but I needed to focus on other things besides myself for a while and that was the price I've paid. And I have managed to stop the weight gain and hold steady at my current weight for a few years now, but am ready to put myself first again and get back to a healthier state.
