Welcome to Sparkpeople! I have found it the most consistent way to lose weight--it hasn't been fast for me, but my behavior hasn't been perfect, either. Over the last year and a half I've lost 60 pounds. I haven't weighed this little in 15 years!
Thanks for adding me as a friend. I've added you, too. :) 2111 days ago
Don't feel guilty, or beat yourself up when you slip a little; get back up, dust yourself off. You are worth it! Change never comes easy but take baby steps and you will get there! 2148 days ago
Found this poem this morning while searching for some motivation, hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
Anything is Possible By Unknown
If there was ever a time to dare, to make a difference, to embark on something worth doing, IT IS NOW. Not for any grand cause, necessarily... but for something that tugs at your heart, something that's your inspiration, something that's your dream. You owe it to yourself to make your days here count. HAVE FUN. DIG DEEP. STRETCH. DREAM BIG.
Know, though, that things worth doing seldom come easy. There will be good days. And there will be bad days. There will be times when you want to turn around, pack it up, and call it quits. Those times tell you that you are pushing yourself, that you are not afraid to learn by trying.
PERSIST. Because with an idea, determination, and the right tools, you can do great things. Let your instincts, your intellect, and your heart, guide you.
TRUST. Believe in the incredible power of the human mind. Of doing something that makes a difference. Of working hard. Of laughing and hoping. Of lazy afternoons. Of lasting friends. Of all the things that will cross your path this year. The start of something new brings the hope of something great, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.
