Progress Not Perfection.

I can't even begin to tell you how happy and relieved I am to be here. I was on a healthy path and fell off. I didn't know how to get back up again. Then I heard Chris Downie (Founder of Sparkpeople.com) talk about having a 10-minute workout commitment and something "sparked"... I got that. I had become an all or nothing elitist. After running 6 half-marathons, I thought why would I do anything less, ever? So I did nothing - - for over a year. I got into a relationship, took the focus ...
I can't even begin to tell you how happy and relieved I am to be here. I was on a healthy path and fell off. I didn't know how to get back up again. Then I heard Chris Downie (Founder of Sparkpeople.com) talk about having a 10-minute workout commitment and something "sparked"... I got that. I had become an all or nothing elitist. After running 6 half-marathons, I thought why would I do anything less, ever? So I did nothing - - for over a year. I got into a relationship, took the focus off of ME and ate out whenever we were together. I needed to change. I tried to count points, fast, go vegetarian, only eat raw fruit, etc... I found Sparkpeople, read the inspirational stories, spun the wheel, earned points and bought the book - I feel like I have accomplished something and I haven't even had my first weigh-in. I started exercising 10 minutes at a time. For the first time in my life, I am taking baby steps. One step at a time, one day at a time, I want it all - not nothing - and I am willing to work hard and enjoy the process and not the outcome. Can't wait to meet you.

"The next time you feel a craving, you're tempted, discouraged, unmotivated or you feel like skipping a workout, focus on your daily goals, not on the huge amount of work that is ahead of you. Tell yourself , all I have is today! All I have is this moment, this workout, this meal, the next 30 minutes, the next hour. If I just do what I know I must do now, then I KNOW I'll reach my ultimate goal eventually. Concentrate on the task at hand IN THIS MOMENT." - Tom Venuto

Some people are special cause of what they say or what they do but you are special to me because of the things you've done for me and who you are in my life. Cause just by being there, you've made all the difference. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

“In life, you will realize there is a role for everyone you meet. Some will test you, some will use you, some will love you, and some will teach you. But the ones who are truly important are the ones who bring out the best in you. They are the rare and amazing people who remind you why it’s worth it.”— Unknown


You are the rare & amazing person who reminds me why it's worth the ups and downs!

You are valuable because you exist. Not because of what you do or what you have done, but simply because you are. –Max Lucado

You are valuable to me!!! emoticon
