Hi everyone!! Thanks for stopping by my Spark Page. This page was overdue for a change up since I have been a member here for many years and through several different plans. So, here goes...

Back in 2012 I started a new path to wellness. It is one that has worked and that I have stuck with for almost 2 years now. It is working because I just decided that I was never, never, never going to quit trying. That's it. Just changing the attitude and deciding to stop quitting has actually worked for me.

I am a slow loser. When I say slow, I mean rrrreeeeeaaallllyyy slow. I was diagnosed with PCOS and hypothyroid years ago. I have insulin resistance and several other challenges. But, I really try not to use those things as an excuse. It serves no purpose. One day I had a little epiphany. I have things in my life that have come to me pretty easily. Weight loss is never going to be one of those things. I have to fight for every inch and every pound. That is just life.

I have other things that do come easily to me and I should be grateful for those things. But, I find that the things you have to really work hard at are the things you appreciate more once you have achieved them. So, until then I just keep putting one foot in front of the other and continue on the path.

There is no start/finish line anymore. It is more like a leisurely walk along the beach. So, I have taken my running shoes off and traded them in for flip flops. I splash a little, let the sand get between my toes and sometimes I stop to look at seashells. I take time to savor the sunrises and sunsets. Maybe someday I'll be able to trade in my tankini for a bikini. But, honestly it isn't my biggest priority at this time. Right now, I am happy just walking along the shore at whatever pace is comfortable and for however long it takes.

    So glad you have decided to join IOWL and explore some of the "inner issues" that stop us from making the "outer transformations" that we so (desperately sometimes!!!) want.

    Be sure to introduce yourself and let me know if you need any help accessing the podcast resources.

    Take care and be well!

    -Michelle

    Hi! I think if you have the WATP DVD's buying the Exerbeat might be the best way to go, to get soem variety. I love my WATP DVD's. I'm taking my time losing the weight, too. I'll have lost over 50 pounds in three years, and am keeping it off.
    Slow and steady is better for the body.
    Hope you are having a great week!
