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

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.

"Be not afraid of going slow; be afraid if standing still" (Chinese Proverb)

With God all things are possible.

If you have the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.

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!
