Success is my only mutha-frakkin option...

I refuse to do this again. This is the life I want and I am going to maintain focus through the process so that this is the "forever" time. This is the last time that I will "re-start" this process because I am finally changing my life & my thought process to reflect how I want to live.

The path has been rocky and I have stumbled many times but I am resilient and stronger than you might think...I want to fly, to show anyone who doubted me that I am a force to be reckoned with and ...
I refuse to do this again. This is the life I want and I am going to maintain focus through the process so that this is the "forever" time. This is the last time that I will "re-start" this process because I am finally changing my life & my thought process to reflect how I want to live.

The path has been rocky and I have stumbled many times but I am resilient and stronger than you might think...I want to fly, to show anyone who doubted me that I am a force to be reckoned with and food, food is not worth the calories unless it is helping me. If you're not with me you're against me, right? Focused because I know I can do this...And I am. Done.

Besides motivating myself to move & lose I am also concentrating my efforts on other aspects of my life - I want to self-publish another book this year and get serious about my commitment to writing...I am reading and absorbing information on subjects that interest me (Spirituality, healthy living, self-help/happiness, etc)...I am on the road to becoming a lighter, smarter, healthier me & I thank SparkPeople for the continued support...

I am also in school (finally) working towards my BA in Interdisiplinary Studies with a concentration in Psychology so my days and nights sometimes blend into each other. But it is so good to flex my brain muscles...Now to combine the two and have strong supple muscles all over...2012 ain't got nothing on me. I will be down to 170lbs by 32 (7/30) just you watch...

Personal Information:
Poet730 is my "pen-name" and it is fitting as I am a 2 time, self-published author (collections of poems) and my birthday/favorite number happens to be 7/30.

I have found that this journey has been one of ups and downs (weight wise and emotional wise). I know it is too easy to "fall off the wagon" and I am taking one step at a time to climb back on and find myself a permanent seat. I want this because I want to be healthy but I also want to be enamored with my image in the mirror, with the curves of my muscles and the firmness of my body. I want to love the exterior of me along with the interior.

Other Information:
Please buy my books (Margarita Isabel), available now @ Lulu.com.

Debut:
"We Never Happened (30 poems for 7 days)" (item #: 2613237)

Second:
"Where I Found Myself" (item # 7220822)

Soooooo.......I fell off big time emoticon and have went right back to emoticon . For the longest time I have told myself pretty little lies instead of facing the ugly truth....

The lies I told was that there is a magical pill or diet to make me skinny....but the truth is....

TO Lose this weight and keep it off we need:

1. Dedication
2. A plan of action
3. To be our biggest emoticon
4. To workout consistently emoticon emoticon emoticon
5. To eat right emoticon emoticon emoticon
6.To drink lots of emoticon
7.To get plenty of sleep
8. To have a great support system emoticon emoticon
9. To love ourselves for who we already are emoticon
10.To BELIEVE that we can do it

Soooo....now that I have looked at myself in the emoticon and realized that I am the only thing holding me back....I am asking you to look in the mirror and answer this one question....

emoticon ARE YOU WORTH IT? BECAUSE I BELIEVE YOU ARE!!! LET's DO THIS emoticon
