Healthy, Happy, Strong

In 2007-2008 I lost 80 pounds using Sparkpeople. I maintained my weight loss for about a year, before getting sick and losing 25 pounds, then regaining 40. I'm almost back to my goal weight, but more importantly I have my health and my energy back. After getting sick I've become even more aware of what I eat and how much I move. Eating right and exercising is no longer about looking good in clothes, it's about being healthy and strong.

Fantastic Blog !! I am a Nutritional Coach and my philosophy has always been to my clients to eat healthy, enjoy the process and don't worry about the scale.. If you do everything right, eat balanced meals, enjoy a real good "cheat" meal once a week and track what you are doing and most importantly enjoy the journey everything will take care of itself

Good luck in your journey!

I'm sure so many of us related to your blog because we've been there & done that, but thanks for the reminder that it's about getting healthy & fit; not about torturing ourselves temporarily until we can go back to our 'normal' eating habits. emoticon

I totally related to your blog. I went through a very similar experience-- I still have to fight the nostalgia for seeing my abs, but I was so miserable when I had a six-pack! I have been attending Overeaters Anonymous meetings in order to come to grips with my obsession with my body image, but I think the answer is to be at peace with your body and not focus on appearances. Good luck, and thank you for your honesty!

Loved your blog!

I found that when I changed my goal from being all about my goal weight to just maintaining a healthy and active life style, the extra pounds seem to take care of themselves. I've finally found peace with myself.

Cheers to your success!

Jenayjs: thanks for your honest and heart warming story. I have been on a similar path, so inspired when I read your story. Clean balanced eating, no compulsion, no bingeing, know when I'm full, when I do this I feel so much better. I have lost over 100 lbs. kept it off for 7'yrs. but still struggle with the same issues you outlined. So thanks again, Ruth
