I'd rather be happy than perfect

I am the quintessential perfectionist - especially when it comes to dieting. Over the past ten years, I have gained and lost the same 30 pounds more times than I can count. I KNOW how to take it off, I just don't know how to establish a healthy lifestyle that supports being thin. My goal is to take small steps toward creating a sustainable lifestyle that keeps me healthy and happy.

I'm aiming for consistency, that is building a healthy lifestyle where exercising and eating well feel nearly automatic.

Aloha,
Thank you for adding me as a friend. My story is the last ten pounds are proving almost impossible to lose. I have kept the 60 off but I want to get to my goal. I think I am sabotaging myself. But being here and making friends and doing Zumba is helping Are you on Maui?

Thank you for your response about our Hawaii visit. Wow, I looked up Haleakala National Park and it looks awesome! We will definitely try to see the sunrise from the summit. I can't believe you live so close to Waikiki Beach! That place is paradise. What a beautiful walk that must be on Sundays. Gosh, don't take the beauty around you for granted...the sun hardly shines where I live in the winter and there's really nothing to do except eat big dinners and watch movies this time of year.

We are so excited for this trip - this will be the most exotic trip we've ever been on - it may be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for us. Thank you for your suggestions and enthusiasm!

THANK YOU for your encouraging words on my blog! I thought of you today, my fiance and I are thinking of getting married in Maui in September. We were browsing the different hotel websites - HAWAII is so beautiful. It's crazy that people actually live there. It must be like living in paradise!
