Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

I have found a new way of thinking -- a new way of being. Having finally reached stage three of my sparkpeople journey and making it to my half way mark, i realize that there is NOTHING that can hold me back.

Even though I have lost, gained, gotten in crazy good shape, gotten sick and slightly depressed... i have realized that as long as i keep myself facing in the right direction, even a step back doesn't undo all the work i have done and will continue to do once im back on ...

Here's a little secret... i have done sparkpeople twice before under different names, and each of those usernames tried time and time again to lose that weight; but the second i started slacking I scrapped it all and swore to start fresh... another time.
This time i recognize that it is not a fast OR easy process. There will be slip ups, there will be set backs, but if i'm climbing to the top of a mountain, do i keep going back to the bottom when things are tough? No! I either work through it or camp out as long as I have to and then keep climbing when I can!

Here's to reaching the TOP.

Hi!! Thanks for the goodie and the blog comments! My birthday is March 28th so our birthdays are pretty close even if yours is at the end of April!

Good luck to you! Hopefully we'll be in the 130s together then!

I think it's very exciting that you ran a half in December!! How many half marathons have you ran? One of my goals this year is to run my first, the longest I've done is a 10K. I think there's one called the "Downhill Slacker Half Marathon" in the mountains this summer that I feel will be a good first try. I'm debating running a 5K next weekend, and I've committed myself to make running a priority this year. I'm trying not to go more than three days between runs. So far, so good! Glad to see you're back
