“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
About a year ago, Ebony Lugo joined SparkPeople and set out on her journey to healthy living. Since then, the 23-year-old New York City resident--known as SWEETZMIX--has lost 48 pounds and been named a SparkPeople Motivator!
We're not the only ones who have noticed Ebony's success; USA Today featured her in its sixth annual Weight-Loss Challenge in the newspaper and online at dietchallenge.usatoday.com. ( dietchallenge.usatoday.com/ ) The series focuses on losing weight on a budget. In addition to joining 100% FREE SparkPeople, Ebony started cooking big batches a few times a week and eating breakfast at home every day instead of dining out, saving hundreds of dollars a month!
