My name is Becky and this is my Westie partner Buddy. So here I am again ... starting over for the last time!

I was once a member of Spark People for over 3 years AKA REBECKY44. I had been a Team Leader for several great Spark Teams. I once was voted a Motivator which was such an honor, but most importantly I made tons of Spark Friends.

When I reached my 3 year Spark Anniversary I found myself discouraged and depressed because I still had not lost any of this weight. So in my despair I began looking elsewhere for something to snap me out of it!

In my darkest hour I made a terrible mistake... I discontinued Spark People!! (SIGH) Yes, I removed my account!! Word of advice... don't EVER do that, because sooner or later you will want to come back to this wonderful place that offers you every tool that you will ever need to reach your goals, and those friends who loved and supported you. When you do come back ... you have to start ALL over again!

I made some positive changes since being away; one is called "Accountability" and the other is realizing that this is where I needed to be!

Starting over and seeing where this new path will lead me, and hoping I can motivate others again while keeping myself motivated!

    I understand how hard it can be to want the pain to be gone and all the problems. I hope Buddy can be ok, big hugs.

    Your new job is someones old job.
    Your new excuse is someones old excuse.
    Your new health plan is someones old heath plan.
    You may not be chartering new waters in finding the new you, but you can be positive and have fun along the way.

    Evening Becky! If you give up now, how will you ever know you could have succeeded? No matter the cost or sacrifice, keep pushing yourself beyond your own boundaries. Make this minute the minute of decision and break free of your self-made limitations!!

    Hello Becky. I thought I’d share a personal observation that seemed to have been a popular one. I hope you don’t mind if I share it again:

    Every fat cell acquired through life is accompanied with either a good or bad memory. No wonder losing weight is such an emotional journey!

    Howdy Becky! If we can’t do 1 sit-up, why set a goal to do 100 sit ups by the end of the week? Although we may have the desire to set miraculous goals, temper them with reality and tone the goals down into achievable goals…then we will reap a feeling of success instead of failure and frustration. Another new day is here! You're doing great! Keep up the hard work and sacrifices!
