I just read your articles and I just want to thank you. I have been working out and consistently logging my food for a couple of weeks but today I realized that I really need to accurately record the portion sizes it is not just a recording of what I ate but how much I am eating. Your articles did inspire me to take it one day at time and keep pushing. Also to start journaling something I used to do before that helped me keep my emotions in check.

I landed here after reading Donna's Journal, Part 1. Seems SparkPeople has the link that should go to Part 2 redirecting here. I'm not sure why they didn't want us to read part 2. But All three links are listed together in the "Motivational Resources" under "Inspiring Stories" tab - here's that link:

Hopes this helps.

For those visiting this journal due to the article in Spark People and wanting to read the actual entries from Donna, go to the last page (currently page 16) and start from the bottom. Donna's membership ID is Donna998 now (was formerly Donna999), but her last post here was on 8/9/2006. She said she will be posting on her other journal, but so far I can't find that one. If I do, I will post its location. I can't be sure, but it seems that she is no longer active on SP.
If she ever checks this old journal of hers, I hope she knows that we are all wishing her well.

It's a real Ah-Ha moment when you first start tracking your food intake.

I go to the gym, but what good is it, if I am not eating correctly. I also like the plan of drink glass of water before drinking soda.

Thank you Donna!

I've just started to read your journal and I'm already inspired to get my butt into gear and not only exercise, but also tone up & lose weight!

I can't let Fibromyalgia, and work get in the way of being healthy and toned.

Congratulations on your success, and thanks again! I truly do appreciate it.

Go back to the article and at the right are related articles, one of them being Donna's Journal - Part 2.

You have a choice...you can throw in the towel or you can use it to wipe the sweat off your face.

"Don't rely on motivation to get the job done. Motivation is temporary. It may be the thing that kicks you into gear initially but it isn't sustainable. Just do what needs to be done
with NO excuses & don't wait on motivation that may never come. Take responsibility for your journey whether you 'feel like it' or not, you'll be glad you did!" ~ NOTABOUTHEFACE

How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?

When the end of the journey seems impossible to reach, all you need to do is take one more step.

I am inspired by your journal entry.

Even the cha-cha is two steps forward and one step back. What counts is that you keep on dancing!

Thanks for sharing! sometimes you need to hear (read) there are people like you! emoticon

Imagine yourself being with your desire. At the same time, feel love for what you're imagining.

As love grows in you, beauty grows too. For love is the beauty of the soul.

A journey shared is a journey enjoyed. Your introspective view of the process to actually decrease size, and in so doing decrease food intake, gave me the inspiration I was looking for to clarify my goals. Thanks for sharing.emoticon

Thank you for sharing your experiences with weight, exercise and life. I am trying to figure out why I want to lose weight - I have all the pat answers ... "to look better", "to feel better", "to wear some hot clothes" ... but none of them are working for me. Every year I gain a couple of pounds and they are more and more difficult for me to lose. I simply eat more than I should.

So I am trying to figure out why so I can set better goals.

Donna thank you for sharing I like so many others have also cheated on the journal and why I can not say. No one sees it but me and why I cheated I don't know but I have vowed to do it right this time. Thank you again for sharing with us and making me realize I am not alone in this. Also had a nice chuckle while reading your post. emoticon
