As Einstein said, doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

Well, I must be insane, because here I am back on Spark. Again. I've lost count of how many times I've started again. Last time I was derailed by a vacation, then getting pregnant. Before that, I can't even remember my excuses.

So why do I expect different results this time? Because I am different. I am fed up and disgusted with myself. I am willing to put in the mental effort to figure out why I eat mindlessly, or turn to food for comfort. I am scared to death that if I don't change my eating habits, I will be leading my sons to an unhealthy life. And I know that I have to be active with them, and for them, so we can all enjoy each other more and hopefully for a very long time to come.

Einstein was a pretty smart dude, but I think I'm gonna look toward another famous quote...

"The distance between insanity and genius is measured only by success." - Bruce Feirstein

    Great choice - the thing is you are joining again, but not essentially DOING THE SAME THING again. You are new, you are still not giving up, and you are going to succeed. HOORAY!!!!
