I have been a sparkperson since 2010. I weight has flucuated up and down like a yo-yo. I have lost 39 pounds over the past eight months. I have not reached my goal weight but I am real close. My new goals will be weight maintenace. I would also like to set a couple of physical goals. I want to ride up mt. soledad on my road bike as I did as a young man. I also want to hike mt. baden-powell as I did when I was a boy scout. I know what I need to do to get in shape to get there.

I am guilty of giving up because of frustration. I want to see it tomorrow, when I just started today!

This couldn't be more true. Wish I'd started a lot sooner than I did.

Yep. It's coming one way or another. Might as well be fabulous when it gets here!

Years ago someone was having a conversation and one person was telling the other that they couldn't do something because it would take too long "i can't. It'll take 5 years and I'll be old by then." The other person responded "well in 5 same you'll be the same age if you do it or not!" That idea always stuck with me and i remind myself that if it takes me a year from now to get into shape, that year will come in a year regardless.

I wish I had started 10 years ago!!! I would have saved a lot of money trying programs that didn't work for me. I also would have lived a different life. But hindsight is 20/20.I live in the present and hope for the future. I am grateful every day that Spark People was suggested to me almost two years ago, and it has helped me change my life for the better. I learn something every day that I log on to Spark People, whether it is about exercise, nutrition or something that I learn about myself. I meet more online friends and find and give the support we all need as we travel the path to weight loss and wellness.

Hmm---if I think back to when I joined SP--I wish I had pushed harder. Seeing this reminds me, I don't want to think that way in a year.

The gift is today living in the present. We don't know if we will have another chance tomorrow. So don't put off what you can do today for tomorrow.
