Ready for something new.

I've lost more than a thousand pounds in my lifetime...and gained more of it back.

I want to start fresh, once again. But, this time I want permanent change. I don't want to just succeed for awhile, and then get comfortable where I am. For me, if I'm not paddling forward, I'm moving backward. I've moved back enough.
It is time to get out of my isolation, to open up to others, be honest with myself and others about where I am and what's going on with my life.

It is time to get out of my isolation, to open up to others, be honest with myself and others about where I am and what's going on with my life.

I've tried to gain control over my eating without making any lasting changes. I've realized I cannot control my eating...I've tried and failed too many times to count. I can however, start being honest about what I eat, why I eat, when I eat, and what I'm feeling. I don't have to stuff it all down anymore.

I give up. I don't want to continue doing what I've been doing anymore. I've done it enough, and it hasn't worked. I want to stop the insanity.

One definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results. If I keep on doing what I've always done, I'll keep on getting what I've always gotten.

I'm ready for something new.

4. Be able to shop in the normal-sized section.

My Program:
A major part of my program is getting out of my isolation by getting involved in sparkpeople.
I'm also tracking my food intake, journaling emotions and the journey, and starting to exercise again.

Personal Information:
My name is Deborah, and I'm originally from Louisville, KY. I have live in Florida for the past 15+ years. What I miss most is four seasons. We have only two here, "Hot", and "it's-a-little-chilly-outside". I miss the autumn leaves, smells, colors, and tastes.

I saw in the Indy Girl huddle that you needed support. Is there anything I can do to help you?
emoticon This small emoticon has such a powerful message. Stay focused on your goals, determined to reach them, and positive that you will.
Take every day one day at a time, sometimes even one hour at a time. Forgive yourself when you "slip" because we all do that. The trick is to forgive yourself and continue forward. Spark says to take two steps forward for every step back.
You CAN do this because you are a strong person.
Stay positive,
Sheila
