I changed my Spark identity just a bit.
I chose my Sparkname over three years ago; so that I could remember it, I chose Challenger [the model of our motorhome] 75 [the amount of weight that I thought I needed to lose].
I have changed in a lot of ways; I got to my goal weight back in the fall of 2012, and have gone back and forth 15-20 pounds since.
I don't feel so bad about those 15-20 pounds, though. I've learned a lot about myself in the ensuing months. I need to take care of ME, regardless of what else is going on.
So, today I gave myself permission to change my name. I have wanted to do it for awhile, but TODAY was the DAY! I still am using CHALLENGER, just because I like it. It reflects my challenging MYSELF to be more healthy, to make good choices, to ease up on myself when my choices haven't been the best but to get back on track, to seek my own motivation, which may and probably will change over time. That's okay. I am not the same person I was when I began, and I will not be the same person that I am now three more years down the road.
