LIFE IS GOOD!

I have always struggled with my weight. This time I want more than just a diet that will get me in my skinny clothes for a while. I want a fit lifestyle.

I never thought that I would actually follow through with the statement above. I'm sure at the moment that I wrote it I hoped to do it, had intentions of doing it, but somewhere inside didn't really believe it was possible for me. But I took the three little starter goals and ran with them...from there I learned how to use the nutrition and fitness tracker. I made friends and joined Spark Teams. I made more goals and really focused on the fitness and activity aspect of the program and low and behold, I am having fun, enjoying testing my limits, striving for goals I never would have thought possible, and a the pleasant side effect of all of this is that I have lost weight and my clothes are loose. But, most importantly, I have more self esteem and confidence in EVERY aspect of my life now. It is a beautiful thing :)

I have held on to a lot of the ideals that I have picked up in my SparkJourney and also let a few slip away. I am back today, determined to pick those pieces back up before I lose any more ground.

It is hard to admit that you have back-tracked into old habits that were detrimental to your success. It's difficult to admit it to yourself and to others. I've found that some habits are so deeply engrained that it's foolish to tell yourself that you are rid of them forever. It takes diligence and persistance to overcome them for a lifetime.

All I want is to be the best me I can be. Sparkpeople is an essential tool for me in staying true to myself and being the best friend, coach, and cheerleader in my own life...and being able to bring that attitude and outlook to everything I do.
