SP, the Yellow Brick Road to Success

For 2012 my goal is to loose 45lbs, exercise 18,000 minutes (jog/1,000 miles+100 days strength training). Unfortunately I ended 2012 having added 10lbs. "The best laid plans of mice and man sometimes fall pray to fate"
July 2013 Update; I've been back in the groove for the last 2 months, with a goal to be back at my July 2012 weight of 275 by Christmas.

Hi Tim, Just read the message. I'm happy to hear how you feel. Your attitude to succeed is what you need , You have all the right things going for you. Attitude, determination and motivation and drive. You are doing it, you will continue to do it and you will succeed.
It's been four years, five months since I started on my journey. Eve though I have reached a very happy place in my life. Health and fitness are good. this journey will continue.
That's what makes a life time change so different from just a diet and weight loss. There's no quitting. You modify, but you have to stay observant and dedicated to living the healthy, fit way for life. Otherwise you can and will slip back in the abyss.
The abyss of obesity is a place I never want to see again.
I just had my four years anniversary here on Spark. I don't have any plans to leave. Being on Spark helps keep in staying aware of my daily goals and in touch with some fantastic friends .
Hope you are enjoying the Spring and are able to get out and participate in outdoor activities.
As much as i enjoy my gym time, I love what I do outdoors. There is something about walking, ,hiking , biking in the fresh air that exhilarating.
I hope to have a new blog wth some new pictures soon. It's just a matter of finding time. Time and I , we are always at odds. Smile!!
Be strong, stay positive.
Tisha

Hey, thanks for the support on my blog, it means a lot. Back issues are a pretty devastating thing to go through. Hoping yours gets better as well! I keep wondering if losing weight would help a lot more.

Thank you for the lovely thought out comment on my blog about our new baby.

We are starting to settle a bit, learning about day and night and finding a routine, so its feeling a little easier.

Just dropped by to say "hi" and a belated "Happy New Year". I was away from SP for almost a year and lost some ground in my battle against flab. But I'm back and ready to go with the help of my spark friends. I see you have started the year off great with trophies for perfect attendance and consistency in Jan., as well as 500 spark points for the month. That's great. Don't let the fact that you did not reach your 2013 goals discourage you. You are still very much in the game and I believe emoticon so emoticon and 2014 can be a
emoticon year.

God bless
