My Journey

I am not going to say this is a restart because I think we are all on a journey. I started on Spark people almost 4 years ago and have had many ups and down.

Life happened, old habits creep back in. I initially lost 75 lbs, then stopped going to the gym, cut back on exercise, bad eating habits crept in, an injury that limited my exercise did not help.

I am happy to say I am still down 40 lbs, and though I am not happy with the regain, it is okay. It's all part of ...
I am not going to say this is a restart because I think we are all on a journey. I started on Spark people almost 4 years ago and have had many ups and down.

Life happened, old habits creep back in. I initially lost 75 lbs, then stopped going to the gym, cut back on exercise, bad eating habits crept in, an injury that limited my exercise did not help.

I am happy to say I am still down 40 lbs, and though I am not happy with the regain, it is okay. It's all part of the journey. I am trying to not put a number on what I want to weigh, I simply want to strive to be healthier each day.

I am a stress eater, and a planner. Not having a plan throws me completely off track, especially with food. I am a binge eater, even simply boredom can make this occur.

I am here to share this journey, learn from all of you, and hope you support me along the way.

"You are destined to SUCCEED! We all have a crisis of confidence now and then.
But within each of us is a voice that whispers,"You can do it."
The more we listen, the louder and clearer it will become.
Deep down inside, you know you've got what it takes to achieve whatever you set your mind to.
So instead of ignoring that little voice, turn up the volume!"
~Woman's World Magazine~

"What is it that you would like to achieve?
What is it that you wish to change, improve upon, create, express or experience?
If you ever want it to happen, now is when you must do something about it.
If it is your desire to see it come about, it is your responsibility to make the necessary effort."
-Ralph Marston

"Today is a new day. It's a day you have never seen before and will never see again.
Stop telling yourself the 'same crap, different day' lie! How many days has that lie stolen from you?
Seize the wonder and uniqueness of today! Recognize that throughout this beautiful day,
you have an incredible amount of opportunities to move your life into the direction you want it to go.”
-Steve Maraboli
