Choosing the Healthy Life over the Easy Life

Update Feb 2015 - I joined SparkPeople way back in Sep. 2006! Back then I shed 15 lbs of fluff that I'd just figured I'd carry for the rest of my life. I spent hours a day tracking food, planning exercise, and corresponding with my Sparkfriends. I loved the way I looked for the first time ever, and kept it that way for a long time!

Fast forward to the present, and now the fluff is almost ALL back. I'm not happy with how I look in the mirror and my fat clothes are all getting ...

Fast forward to the present, and now the fluff is almost ALL back. I'm not happy with how I look in the mirror and my fat clothes are all getting tight :-/.

No surprise though - that was a lot of time and energy and I had a hard time keeping up with it. These days I have a much harder time saying no to food/drink and saying yes to an hour in the gym over an hour with my kiddos or a half hour decompressing.

I have reached that fork in the road and am forcing to choose the healthy life over the easy life! How true that is for me.

I've always found great inspiration in my SparkFriends! Please add me as a friend or just drop by and say hello!

Hello girlfriend: Just wanted to tell you that I'm thinking of you. Hope you are doing well! I've decided to recommit to the SP process - weight's been creeping back and I need to take control.
