I initially started SparkPeople in 2010 just after my 30th birthday in an effort to lose weight and get healthy. I started out really well and kept at it for most of the beginning of that year, losing almost 15 pounds and feeling better physically and mentally than I had in a long time. Somewhere along the way I lost that focus I'd started with and just couldn't find it again. I could sit here and come up with a million excuses but none of them would provide any justification. The fact is laziness and eating out of boredom are two of my biggest demons and it's high time I faced them head on. I may never be able to rid myself of them completely but at least I can have the upper hand. Nearly two years later I'm back and starting all over with the hope that this won't be just an attempt at a healthier life but a successful transition into one.
