The Risk it Takes to Blossom

"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." -- Anais Nin


2006 -- Joined Sparkpeople
2009 -- Actually started using it! Lost 38 pounds.
2012 -- Had regained 30 pounds and turned back to Spark -- lost 70 pounds! Got within spitting distance of my goal.
2014 -- Regained 20 pounds.

So, where am I at now? I'm determined. I'm ferocious. I'm ready to keep banging my head against the wall until I figure out what will work for me. I see now that it isn't enough to lose weight -- it has to be sustainable, you have to be able to keep it off. There is no magic recipe -- the formula for success is constantly changing. And I am determined to keep up.

My ultimate goal is to be happy and healthy in all arenas of my life. Many people in my family have struggled with their weight and I hope to break free of the cycle and blaze my own trail. As of July 2013, I have lost 70 pounds!

I also actively seek to manage and reduce my stress through prayer, exercise and relaxation.

I love all things artsy, from paintings to films to music. I graduated from law school in May of 2011. I love to swim, dance and walk by the beach. I love California and all of our wonderful beaches, forests, wines and cheeses. :)

Thanks, PP, for the birthday greeting. I'm now home from the not-crazy evening out and had a good time. You're on the right track: Authentic luxury, no Canal-Street counterfeit, for women such as we.

Hey Chica!

I'd love your opinion on a topic I'm wrestling with lately: the use of vanity as a motivator. I've posted it in a forum here -- http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_me

Would you be willing to pop in and comment, please?

I'm glad you said that about not having counted on new challenges. They are a good reason to keep the list-writing an ongoing part of your program. As things occur, whether new challenges or new and/or amended goals, add them. As things are solved or achieved, check them off. You'll be surprised by the written record of your journey and its straight paths and detours.
