Keeping On Keeping On

I have just begun my 2nd year on Spark and have lost 34 pounds, 3 pounds to my first goal.

I had success with Atkins/High Protein approach over and over again. But each time, I think I can just 'return' to my younger eating patterns and not gain weight. And that magical thinking has not worked. I am now an official 'oldster' and have realized that it is time for my health to stay with the approach that really works best for my body, in this here and now.

My first year taught me new habits, new choices and absolutely confirmed that Atkins is my life-long health path. I look forward to continuing my journey to a still lower goal weight and to years of healthy maintenance. I will not abandon my knowledge and focus as I have in the past. I'm here to stay.

"If you have made mistakes...there is always another chance for you...you may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call "failure" is not the falling down, but the staying down."

Thank you for your kind comment on my blog, "In Memory of My Dear Friend, Little_Queen." The Mary Pickford quote was one of her favorites. Have a blessed day.

"Many things are simply not going to happen with just one, or three, or even a dozen attempts. Yet anything becomes possible with enough persistence.
Keep going, and allow your efforts to build upon one another. Keep going, and transform the disappointments into achievements.
You have what it takes to keep going, because all it ever takes is just one more step forward.
Keep going, and work your way steadily to the richest rewards you can imagine."
-- Ralph Marston
