Without struggle, there can be no progress...

2013 update: Yes I've been on Spark for what seems like forever. No I am not at a "goal" weight. Yes I continue to struggle. Yes I am continuing to push forward.
Over the past year I have been nursing a misdiagnosed injury. I let that injury and subsequent months of PT get me down and depressed and stuck. Yes it still hurts. I'm coming to accept it might always hurt. I will keep pushing forward.

I recently moved across the country to California to live a new life adventure. I live with 5 other people who do not share the same ideas about heath and positive living that I do. It is a struggle. This is me continuing to progress.

***WORK IN PROGRESS****

I realized recently that I have been wallowing in the fact that I am fat and that all I wanted was to be rid of the fat. But that's not it...what I want is to be healthy. Fat or thin. I want to be healthy. I don't want to be like some of my family with heart disease and hbp or have to have joints replaced at an early age.
I also remembered what I felt like the last time I was getting healthy...except that I was on some crazy unsustainable diet...I was full of energy and life. That's what I want back.


* if I've added you and you wonder why...it's because YOU INSPIRE ME!! *
