It's all about the choices

But first comes living with intention. That is the biggest difference I can see between this Spark attempt (starting 2/3/12) and the previous one begun in May of 2009, during which I lost (and subsequently re-gained) 30 lbs. There have been a lot of losses in my life in the past 2 1/2 yrs (4 siblings, my mom and a niece) and I have a perspectrive now that I didn't have in 2009.

But first comes living with intention. That is the biggest difference I can see between this Spark attempt (starting 2/3/12) and the previous one begun in May of 2009, during which I lost (and subsequently re-gained) 30 lbs. There have been a lot of losses in my life in the past 2 1/2 yrs (4 siblings, my mom and a niece) and I have a perspectrive now that I didn't have in 2009. Life is precious and none of us is guaranteed a long and healthy run. It is up to each of us to make the best choices we can to make EACH day as healthy and fulfilling as possible. This can' t wait until tomorrow or until some unspecified goal (finishing school, taking a trip, having kids/grandkids, retirement, after the house is built (insert goal of your own)). All we have is today. There is no guaranteed tomorrow. Make the good choices you need today! Then, if you are blessed with tomorrow, you will meet it with no regrets for what could have been.
