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
