Hey everyone!!! Its been too long! I stopped my Sparking journey at the beginning of the year. Reason being, i was not getting the results i wanted. I have been on sparkpeople since 2008 (roughly) and i have not lost any weight. But of course, its not SP's fault! it was my own. For some reason, i have always compared my success to that of others, in everything i did. so i get on SP and read so many success stories and always ask myself "why can't i do that? what's wrong with me?" NOTHING! my journey is my journey, just like everyone's journey is their own. Its taken me forever to realize that, and now that I have, I'm BAAAA-AAACK! Its time for me to focus on myself and my triumphs, not others'. I tried to do it on my own, but there was nothing to hold me accountable. So many times, after overeating/binging, i would say, "i'll just start over tomorrow." Basically, i hid from you all. I hid all my failures and lack of will power. i didn't want you judging me. But i do need a push...support...encouragement...things i can get from those who have been where I am now. and what better place to go to find it than SPARKPEOPLE?

That's for sure. One thing I'm realizing is that weight loss is different from everyone. I look on Youtube and on SP blogs and I see so many success stories and tips on how to lose weight and keep it off for good...
But one thing I have finally come to terms with is that what works for them does not work for me. I have tried tips from others and tried to follow diet plans, all to no avail. Before, I always used to question myself, "What's wrong with me? What is the difference between me and them? Am I so messed up that I can't do what others can do?" But this is not the healthy approach....
One thing I do know is that I have to learn to love myself enough to WANT to get healthy. At times, I daydream about how good my life will be once I lose weight...I'll have the perfect job, the perfect boyfriend, the perfect body, the perfect personality....BUT NOTHING IN LIFE IS PERFECT!!!! And I can't wait to lose weight before I start enjoying life...I have to love life now so that even if I never lose weight, I will still love myself. For the past years, ever since I have wanted to lose weight, I have always wanted to do it for the wrong reasons. I have always wanted to lose weight so that I would be prettier, more attractive... But that won't last forever....I have to love myself enough to want to take care of myself....
Today is the day that it all starts....No longer will I put life on hold, waiting to lose weight before I really start LIVING. From now on, I will love myself and focus on improving myself, not for the sake of vanity, but for the sake of living a long, healthy life.

It's been a while since i've blogged...actually since i've been active on SP at all really. Things are really crazy right now. Some updates....
*I'm in my second semester in law school and its kicking my butt!!! (in a good way). Even though its a ton of work and i have no life (lol) i love it!!!! Do you ever get to a place where you're like, "im meant to be here."? That's how i feel!!! I know this is my calling and I promised myself im gonna excel at it!!!
*Over the past few months, i've gotten rid of a lot of negative people in my life. People who are just no good for me and were holding me back....it definitely was hard at first. At times, i second guess my decision, but I know at the end of the day, b/c of the way it happened, it's what God thought was best for me.
*Weight loss: NON EXISTENT!!!! I've been tough on myself for the past few months and I need to get back on track. So that means, tracking everything I eat and being EXTREMELY active on SP! I need to get back on track so I can enjoy life!!!
Will keep you updated!

Its been so long since I've been on SP....Missed you all! Life is hectic right now and I'm working on finding a balance. So here's the deal...
I just started law school (yay me!) I am so proud of my accomplishment. I'm about a month in and things are crazy. It's a lot different from undergrad. The work is harder and the workload is much heavier. On top of that, I work as well. So i leave my house around 7 in the morning and dont come back home until around 9 pm. Crazy right?
Needless to say, my healthy eating habits that I have worked on have gone out the window, and i barely have time to workout. I try my best, but with my mind and body so tired, at times, i just dont' care.
But i'm realizing that I can't let law school take over my life. I need to take care of myself. So I quit my job to devote my focus on school and myself. And now that I know what law school is about, i feel like i can adjust and manage my time more. And i starting right now, i promise myself to get on SP at least once a day, even for only 5 minutes. Every little bit counts, right?
