Hi Everyone! My name is Linda and have 122 pounds to lose to put me in a normal weight range. What the final weigh loss will be depends on how I feel & look. The most important thing is I must be comfortable with myself. I guess my title page says it all. I have been a member off and on for a few years now. It is time I hold myself accountable and get serious about losing weight. I am tired of yo yo dieting. I am really tired of the way I look and feel. I am fearful of developing heart disease or diabetes which runs in our family. I lack discipline, self control and perseverance. But that is O.K. I am here to learn. When I think of my goal it puts a BIG SMILE on my face! I know when I lose the weight I will have more energy and my self esteem will soar! I know it's going to be a long road but I AM GOING TO TAKE ONE DAY AT A TIME! I'm in this for the long haul. Their seems to be so much help on the site that I know in my heart I will succeed! My short team goal is to leave Twoterville & enter into Onederland in 2017. I can do it! I will do it! I believe in myself. I'm not a quitter!

I AM GOING TO FINISH WHAT I STARTED :) Been off track for a while now. It's time to get back to Onederland. All my spark friends are now in 170ville or lower. It makes me sad that I could be their now! I refuse to give up! In 2017 I will write my success story! It will be my new beginning, my re-dedication to finish what I started. I will be successful, I WILL cross the finish line. Someday I will be able to say "I DID IT"
It's a one way road from now on!!!


2.Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try!
3.Do what you can, with what you have, where you are!
4.A person who wants something will find the way. A person who doesn't will find an excuse!
7.The chief cause of failure & unhappiness is trading what you want MOST for what you want in the MOMENT!
8.It's NEVER too late to be who you might have been!
9.I may not be there yet but I am closer than I was yesterday:)

    Hi Linda! Both of the posts that I felt were spam on the Breaking 200 team are gone now. So someone must have reported it as "inappropriate" and they were taken down. They were by two different people, but neither of the people were listed as team members, so I found that odd. And neither of the people had SparkPages that you could view. Both posts were about how a drug, I think phentermine, can help you lose weight quickly, and one gave a website where you could buy the pills cheap. So..sounded like spam. Glad they are gone now. I get annoyed at people trying to manipulate us like that!
    Hope you are doing well and recovering from your surgery. I've not made much progress this summer, so I'm trying to get serious this month and make some progress before the holidays get here!
    Have a great week!
