The day I signed up for SparkPeople. I wasn't as dubious as I looked ;)





The best photo I could find that captures my highest weight - about 205 lbs here...

Losin' It!

I'm 31 and have struggled with weight and fitness for most of my adult life. I've never been obese but always seem to end up in that "a few extra pounds" category. Since I've hit my thirties though, I've found it's getting harder and harder to lose the extra weight and I hit a new weight 'high point'. I need to make a commitment to getting healthy and maintaining a healthy weight and lifestyle.

Thanks for the advice in your blog comment. I'm starting to open up a little more on the forums and it's working. I suppose I always expect and want things to go faster than they do. I'm feeling better. Thank you. :)

Thank you, THANK YOU, thank you for sharing in my good news! I really appreciate you commenting on my "And the Academy Award Goes To..." blog and celebrating this beautiful life with me. It's still hard in a way to believe this is all over and I can finally focus on other things. One thing I know for sure, I would not be this strong, this motivated, and this supported without all of the amazing people here (like you!!) at SP.

Life is truly a gift. Appreciate what joys and strengths you have every day. Share your happiness with others. Live!

Today you have the choice to be amazing. Today you can do more than just try. You can succeed. You can be victorious. Today, you can rock your world. You can look yourself in the eye and smile... because you know that you are fighting for an amazing cause: YOU. And YOU are absolutely worth fighting for.

You can also do the same thing tomorrow.

"It's not whether you get knocked down; it's whether you get up." - Vince Lombardi

In honour of the upcoming Summer Olympic Games this Saturday in London, I give to you the Olympic Creed which is as true for the games as it is for achieving our own goals and dreams each and every day:

"The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well."

Today, you are a superhero, a survivor, a warrior, and a beacon to others for honouring yourself, your mind and your body; for making the choices that will make you an even better person tomorrow.

Today you are one step closer, because you decided to be. Fight strong, fight well, fight fair.

"Never, never, never, never give up." - Winston Churchill
