I seem to have been at Sparkpeople.com for such a long time. I have had moments of clarity about my weight, my eating habits and about the things that motivate me. I have learned many new things about taking care of myself by eating healthy, balanced meals and makig fitness a part of my life. I also discovered that I give up on me long before others and I am harder on me than others. I have come to understand that it is not a choice that I have as to whether or not I want to be here. It has become a matter of life that I remain here and continue to take this journey one step at a time. There is no possible success for me if I turn back or stop. I can give in, give up or give it my all.

This will not be easy. But I will not give up.

Welcome back. I've been MIA myself a time or two myself so I fully understand. It's okay to get knocked to your knees and just lay there while you regroup. Th point is you weren't knocked out, so you're back and you'll get back on track. Thanks for my Spark Goodie---and the heads up.
