This is not a Race- it's just life.

I am now at Spark Level 14.

This has extra significance to me because I always thought the icon was the prettiest of all the Spark levels...
When I started out & had the dinky star & ugly colored ones I would look at Level 14 & imagine what my fitness/waistline would look like when I got that far along.

I also threatened myself with- Wow, how embarrassed are you going to be if you still have weight to lose.
I thought if I didn't hit my 'marks' when I got here I would be a failure.

Well, I am not at goal.
I used to think my goal was 135 ...but I tell you, when I hit 145 in 2011 I was in great shape (see cover pic) .
I would be Mighty happy to get to there.
I WILL be mighty happy to get to there.

I am 7 lbs away.

I am not a failure because I am not at my new goal.

& I don't feel like a failure because I modified my goal.

I am not a failure because I did not Quit.

Don't ever quit!

    I agree 100%. For me it is about planning, trying, and readjusting my plan and goals.

Keep up the great work!
