Update: 2014 - have gained weight, but only 1/2 - 1 size larger in clothes - lots of muscle weight, but I'm not happy about the pants size going up (from a 4 to a 6). My goal is to not focus so much on the scale up to drop the inches off my hips, butt & gut. - And SOON!!

I joined SparkPeople in April 2009 with the hopes of losing 9 lbs. I ended up losing 20 lbs and finding a whole new me. A me I never knew existed. A me that loves to exercise, especially running; a me who loves to eat healthy; a me who loves to celebrate the life God has given me. I developed an entirely new, HEALTHY lifestyle and I absolutely love it.
Here on Spark I have found the inspiration, encouragement, motivation and friendship to continue on my journey to a healthy, fit, happy life.
And it is a journey, full of ups and downs, good days & bad days, but forever moving forward. I will never go back to the way I led my life before. This is MY life and I am going to LIVE and enjoy it.

I know what you mean about the will power battle..
I do think that developing will power is much like developing any other muscle or habit..a lil bit at a time until it becomes a habit..then more until you have a good grip on why you eat & what!

Of course we all have weaknesses...main thing there is to get up..dust off & keep moving forward!!

Have a great weekend!!

I'm glad the picture was big enough that you could see that I really do have muscles. I was afraid people would think I was a loon.
