about 17 months ago, i joined spark people. it's been a wild ride...high points, low points, plateaus, craziness...i have learned a lot.
in the last 25 months, i dropped 103 lbs (have since gained 9 back), gone from a couch potato to running a half marathon, went from morbidly obese to "overweight." not much has changed in the weight area for a while, but a lot of good things have been happening in the head area, so that's good.

about 17 months ago, i joined spark people. it's been a wild ride...high points, low points, plateaus, craziness...i have learned a lot.
in the last 25 months, i dropped 103 lbs (have since gained 9 back), gone from a couch potato to running a half marathon, went from morbidly obese to "overweight." not much has changed in the weight area for a while, but a lot of good things have been happening in the head area, so that's good.
i quit tracking calories, because that kicked my anorexic side in big time, and under eating sabotaged my efforts. i've spent the last half year working to change my thinking about myself, as i've continued my journey. i did great until the snow and ice came...my long hikes and outdoor activities came to a screeching halt, between that and a couple of challenging months physically and emotionally, i put on a few pounds. i'm feeling much better, now, and i'm so excited to be moving again!
it's a huge step of faith...but i know that God will be with me, and i will be reasonable.

"If you have made mistakes...there is always another chance for you...you may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call "failure" is not the falling down, but the staying down."
-- Mary Pickford

"Defeat may test you; it need not stop you. If at first you don't succeed, try another way.
For every obstacle there is a solution. Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
The greatest mistake is giving up."

"Many things are simply not going to happen with just one, or three, or even a dozen attempts. Yet anything becomes possible with enough persistence.
Keep going, and allow your efforts to build upon one another. Keep going, and transform the disappointments into achievements.
You have what it takes to keep going, because all it ever takes is just one more step forward.
Keep going, and work your way steadily to the richest rewards you can imagine."
-- Ralph Marston
