Continuing on the Journey

I thought it was time to freshen my information. I found Spark People in 2009 but ignored it. Then I was ready to look at it again in 2010. Like many, I didn't jump all in. I poked around on the site for the entire month of January and truly started in February 2010. That year I lost 20 pounds and had 5 more to go to hit my weight loss goal. So close!

Like so many, I gained half my weight back when I became sporadic in following the steps that had worked so well for me. It's ...

Like so many, I gained half my weight back when I became sporadic in following the steps that had worked so well for me. It's hard to know just what the problem was - was I lazy, or was it simply I didn't want to lose weight as much as I wanted to eat whatever I wanted (I believe it was the later)? I regained 10 pounds and have held onto that weight with a little effort on my part.

So, I'm back at it again. I've changed a few things up because this plateau is not where I want to live the rest of my life. Paying attention to the nutritional aspect of my weight loss more closely than ever before. Making sure I keep moving my body. I have great plans for 2015! By the end of the year I will see these last 12 pounds GONE!

This sounds dramatic, but I had some teary eyes at your comment. Thank you so much. It feels so good to get affirmation from people you like & respect --- just to hear that yeah, it's been a hellish year so far.

It has. But it feels better to be here and to be checking in again with you all. Thank you so much for the kind words on my blog. I can't tell you how much they meant to me.

Hey! Thank you so much for your comment on my blog. I am so grateful to know I have people still rooting for me, even if I pick up and disappear for YEARS!!!

It rings so true to hear that I've lost pieces of my heart. It's hard to lose pieces - but I can't lose myself. Thank you so much for your friendship and support. I feel like I'm coming home. :)

Hey lady! You know me, back at it again, after a VERY long time away. I've thought about you and wondered how you were doing on your journey. I hope it's been treating you well.

Hopefully you'll be seeing me around more... ;) I'm finally feeling committed and motivated. It's taken me months to feel this way again.

Thank you for your blog comment. Doesn't the steamed green beans sound so much better? I never thought my mother would plan that or ever deviate from her traditional menu. So happy!!!

"Every day of our lives we are faced with a choice.
The choice to BE, or to be truly AMAZING.
Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.
No matter who you are, or what you do, you absolutely, positively do have the power to TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE."
