I've been away from Spark for about 2 1/2 years. I log in every once in a while when I see an article on Facebook that I want to read.

Things are going fine in my journey - I'm a totally different person than when I left.

My focus has been on healing my relationship with food, and I am happy to say that I have made HUGE healthy progress on this.

I stopped going to the gym, too - didn't stop exercising, but stopped going to the gym. I don't really miss it too much, either.

Focus now is mainly on being healthy and happy, and giving up the temptation to be compulsive about my weight.

I'm never going to have a six pack or a flat tummy, and I am perfectly okay with that. I no longer have the time, energy, or willingness to worry about it, obsess about it, or make it my unofficial job to attain it.

I'm happy, I'm working out my purpose in life - of which having a healthy body is only one part.

I may not be on here every day or even every week like I used to be back in the day, but checking in to help others and constantly reaffirm my health and happiness in positive ways is something I can commit to.

Happy healthing.

    "Just gotta shrug 'me off and dpi it anyway" is probably the best advice ever. :)

    I'm glad you got a kick out of my status this morning. We moved from a little place with little storage to a larger place with more storage - but somehow there's still so much stuff that just doesn't fit! I've been dreaming about buying more shelves for so long... it is pretty funny actually :P

    Thank you for the comment on my blog!

    I think I've lost sight on this weightloss journey and forgotten that like bills/job/grown up dudties, health and fitness are a responsibility. It's my responsibiliy to keep my body healthy and fit because it is important. I think deep down I know its a my job, but I have not made it important.

    Thank you for reminding me.
