Today is my 7th SparkVersary.
I came to Spark 7 years ago in search of yet another easy secret weight loss cure. I was in yo-yo mode, overweight, fed up and disgusted.
While I did not find an easy weight loss cure, I did find the secret to weight loss! (And also the secret to maintaining that loss.) Not in my wildest dreams could I have imagined what this journey would bring.
Spark and my SparkFriends helped me get the diet mentality out of my head. I discovered that losing weight and keeping it off can never work if food is your sole focus.
What I've learned is that if you take care of yourself, physically, mentally, spiritually, if you find your happy, if you eat right and exercise, weight loss happens. It seems to be a byproduct of self care.
I am at goal. Maintaining, much like losing, takes daily work and fine-tuning. I don't expect that to go away. But I'm okay with that.
A daily dose of SP is just the right medicine to keep me on track. Love my SparkFriends (have seen many come and go). SP is first up in my toolbox.
I am here every day, though I've made myself a bit sparse over the last several months.
I have good reason :) - This is happiness times two.

"Your life will improve only when you take small chances, and the first and most difficult chance you can take is to be honest with yourself."
We all know it, the definition of insanity...
... doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
Not working! Right?
I for one am the master of self-deception. Out of fear to leave my comfort zone, I can talk myself into just about anything!
Over the past few months I have taken a bunch of small chances, and come to think of it, even some bigger ones, and while this is really scary, the rewards are amazing.
Seeing what is, and deciding where you want to be is great. Except, you won't get there unless you take chances, and dare to venture out into the great unknown.
Let the adventure begin!

"It only takes one person to make you happy and change your life: YOU."
As I am moving along on my chosen path, I find that emotional wellbeing is hugely important. Finding and maintaining my Happy is key.
This has nothing to do with whether or not life is perfect or even good. Happiness comes from within, it's a state of being, a state of mind. It carries you through good times and bad times.
Peace and strength live in my Happy Place:
Peace with myself and the strength to carry on, no matter what life may throw my way.
