I've had enough!

I had finally had enough of the yo-yo dieting, and was ready to commit to a permanent lifestyle change. I want to be healthy and fit, and try to compensate a bit for the years of lousy nutrition and being a slug!

I know I never would've made it as far as I have, without SparkPeople and the support and encouragement I've gotten here. Plus, the Nutrition Tracker is an absolutely fabulous tool!

"My will shall shape the future. Whether I fail or succeed shall be no one's doing but my own.
I am the force; I can clear any obstacle before me or I can be lost in the maze. My choice; my responsibility; win or lose, only I hold the key to my destiny."

"The common conception is that motivation leads to action, but the reverse is true....action precedes motivation.
You have to "prime the pump" and get the juice flowing, which motivates you to work on your goals.
Getting momentum going is the most difficult part of the job, and often taking the first step is enough to prompt you to make the best of your day."
