I've come a long way in this weight loss journey, and it's hasn't always been easy. I'm so grateful for the help and encouragement I have received from Spark friends! Without that encouragement I wouldn't be where I am now.

Having regained about 80 lbs. I'm at a point where I need to focus on myself again. I don't want to keep gaining. I need to make lists every day of what my goals are. No exceptions! No excuses!

Other's are doing it. So can I! Motivation is key! Time to find it, where ever I can!

Daily Positive Affirmations:

For me, dieting is "Permanent": I am NOT naturally thin. I must be eternally vigilant and avoid the temptations that I can't resist.

No amount of food would "EVER" be enough food. I'm "Just as Hungry" 80, 90, or 100 pounds (Or More) Overweight as when I stick to my goal weight.

�YOU CAN HAVE RESULTS OR EXCUSES, NOT BOTH.� �UNKNOWN

�YOUR LEVEL OF SUCCESS IS ONLY PREDETERMINED BY YOUR LEVEL OF EFFORT.�

"You have to find something that you love enough to be able to take risks, jump over the hurdles and break through the brick walls that are always going to be placed in front of you. If you don't have that kind of feeling for what it is you are doing, you'll stop at the first giant hurdle."
-George Lucas

Still have a ways to go. Need to work on finding improved ways to help me reach my goals. What I have been doing isn't working.
Finding the motivation to keep up with the workouts and healthy eating is what I need to work on.

    .Late Christmas Eve, when all was still and the room was dark as night,
    The Christmas tree lit magically...it was a fantastic sight!
    Then from around the tree trunk came, a strange and funny sound,
    As gifts began to unwrap themselves, and toys jumped out all around.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    The music box began to play, and in a crazy trance,
    The candy canes jumped off the tree to do a silly dance.
    The big stuffed bear leaped to his feet to see what he could see;
    He rode a shiny, bright red bike around the Christmas tree.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    The new toy kitchen started to cook and before you could blink an eye,
    The oven door opened, and from inside came a tiny pizza pie.
    A squirt gun squirted everything; It knew what it was for;
    By the time that it was emptied out, a big puddle lay on the floor.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    A beautiful doll with golden hair was searching for a friend;
    A toy soldier marched up and took her hand...they were a perfect blend.
    In the bedroom were a boy and girl, asleep in Christmas dreams.
    The soldier saluted; the doll gave a kiss at least that's the way it seems.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Now everything began to tire..the toys went back in place.
    But when mother woke in the morning, you should have seen her face.
    The tree was fine; the gifts were there, yet mother gave a roar;
    She looked at her wet shoes and yelled
    "What's this puddle on my floor?"
