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!

"Progress. Just make progress. It's okay to have setbacks and the need for do-overs. It's okay to draw a line in the sand and start over again --- and again.
Just make sure you're moving the line forward. Move forward. Take baby steps, but at least take steps that keep you from being stuck. Then change will come.
And it will be good."

"Even if the challenges are immense and the obstacles are many, step forward and live the life you choose to live. Your dreams are worth every effort.
Even if you get knocked down again and again, get right back up and get going. With enough persistence, any goal is within your reach.
Even if you can’t see all the way to the end of the road, go ahead and take the first step. Each time you make some progress, you’ll find new ways to make even more.
Even if your results fall short of your expectations, keep making the effort. Each new day brings you more experience, wisdom and effectiveness.
Even if you’ve been deeply disappointed in the past, focus on the positive possibilities. For your future is what you choose to make it now."
— Ralph Marston

"Sometimes victory seems so far away because we measure it only by the goal.
And end goals can seem overwhelmingly huge, daunting, and just plain hard to reach.
But if we start measuring our victories by the smaller choices we make each day,victory won't seem so impossible.
....It's amazing the chain reaction that can start in your life with just one good choice.
Big things are built one brick at a time.
Victories are achieved one choice at a time.
A life well lived is chosen one day at a time.
Oh sweet friend, you are closer than you think to victory!"

"You've heard the old procrastinator's turn of phrase, "Don't do today what you can put off until tomorrow."
Well, the same goes for procrastination itself. Put if off until tomorrow.
Seize the future you want by seizing the present you have.
Get started now – not tomorrow, next week or when you get around to it.
"Around to it" never seems to get here."
