There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And
maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
Breathe in love & compassion.. Breathe out peace & forgiveness.

emoticon and emoticon to a great team!! I wish I could give you any hints at exercise after a 12 hr. shift when you barely find time to sleep. Can you concentrate your full energy to your days off? I worked the 12 hr shifts and tried to take the stairs all the time as I was out and running most the time. Taking extra walks through the building when I wasn't busy was the only true exercise I came up with besides when the kids were young and we needed to run with them every evening for games etc. Best wishes on your journey to a healthier lifestyle.


Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

I'm hoping Spark People with give me th spark I need to lose 50 pounds by next March. I started Weight Watchers several times but lose interest after a few weeks. I lost 35 pounds back in 2006 but have gained it back. This time, I want to finish and keep it off. My biggest challenge is exercise - I already get up at 5 am to go to work, and I have a twelve-hour day every week day. Any helpful hints would be greatly appreciated!
