Welcome back!! Small goals are fantastic. I had to do that or I became very frustrated. Pat yourself on the back or have a small non food reward for making your goals. Make your goals realistic not something you have to starve to accomplish. It takes persistance and believing in yourself. You can do it and you are worthy of being at a healthy weight. Dont beat yourself up if you have a setback. Just acknowledge it and put it behind you and immediately get back on track. Good luck to you.

Hello and welcome back! I like the idea of cutting your goal into smaller chunks. Definitely seems more manageable that way. Hope you are able to get what you want!

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

Can you believe it? I can and can't. I tried another online meetings place (paid), I tried it on my own, I have made many starts and no finishes. Weight is back on again. So I signed into Sparks people again and would you believe that my last login was june 7, 2011. With the EXACT SAME starting weight and goals. This time I have decided to not look at the BIG picture. I have set my goal into 3 chunks. It just looks more manageable, when I see a goal loss of 22 and not 66...
Emotional eating has been my weakness. A busy schedule, etc. I can come up with all kinds of excuses but the more I try this whole weight loss journey, the more I realize it's about how I really FEEL about myself. Not just the outside, but the inside. I'm scared to change. I don't want to be thin and then regret not doing it sooner. I don't want to be thin and attract a man, only to be rejected again. So I'm going to really journal why I eat, when I eat what I eat. Maybe that will be the ticket. Wish me luck. I am worthy of a healthy body weight and happiness...repeating this over and over. Much love to all with our journey.
