Choosing the Healthy Life over the Easy Life

Update April 2016 - 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. I'm not happy with how I look in the mirror and my pants are way too snug, and I just feel overall frumpy.

Fast forward to the present. I'm not happy with how I look in the mirror and my pants are way too snug, and I just feel overall frumpy.

My success in the past required a lot of obsession, and honestly, it is not realistic for my life today. 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 choose to live the healthy life over the easy life! That is why I will not give up my Spark! I have 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.
