You are still working at it - whether the starting weight is the same or bigger, or maybe even smaller - you are HERE and YOU have already learned some things and will learn some more. It is the spirit of NOT GIVING UP that really matters most. I have lost and regained a lot of weight but I have learned along the way and I AM seeing progress now and I am celebrating the NOW and learning from the past but not carrying the weight of the past on my shoulders of MY HEAD - I had to release the past and look toward the future - YOU CAN DO IT.

It doesn't matter how many times you "fail", it's all about how many times you get back up (back on track)! You can do it!!!

I know the feeling, JINJIN, I was there yesterday. But today it's day 2 and it feels better already! This time when I restarted I had to up the starting weight because I gained a couple of pounds, talk about discouraging. But we only have this place to start from, wherever we are. And choices about where to go from here, right? We're all right there with you!
And I, too, am making use of the message boards and teams for the first time. Really hoping it will keep me on track.

Thank you Rebcca! I love " Change. It has the power to uplift, to heal, to stimulate, surprise, open new doors, bring fresh experience and create excitement in life. Certainly it is worth the risk." (Leo Buscaglia" !!!! and a change is as good as a rest! Getting the bike down from the rafters tonight no matter how tired i am, and going for a ride with my daughter!

You can do this JinJin!
Here are some thoughts I refer to as reminders, hope they speak to you too.
"Every moment of your life is infinitely creative and the universe is endlessly bountiful. Just put forth a clear enough request, and everything your heart desires must come to you." (Shakti Gawain)
"By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The non-existent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired." (Nikos Kazantzakis)
“I can change. I can live out my imagination instead of my memory. I can tie myself to my limitless potential instead of my limiting past. (Stephen Covey)
“Change. It has the power to uplift, to heal, to stimulate, surprise, open new doors, bring fresh experience and create excitement in life. Certainly it is worth the risk." (Leo Buscaglia)
“Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.” Brian Tracy

Hi, I seem to have to lose the same "beginning" weight over and over again. I've promised myself this is day one again, and that i am thankful that i have another day to begin anew. I am writing this as i've never really used the message boards in earnest. I'm making small changes that will hopefull "stick" and help with the weight loss and hopefully the message boards will help too. Please, Please , Please if you can spare a few minutes to offer motivation, it would be appreciated! Off to get another water. Have a great day everyone.
