I have lost 23 pounds since 2006. My problem is consistency. I struggle with being consistent in every aspect of my life. I am a writer. I want writing to be my means of income, but it is easier to take an office job and not risk failure. If I can become consistent with exercise and weight loss I believe I can achieve consistency in every aspect of my life. I lost weight before because I had a trainer. Right now I don't have the means to have a trainer so I am signing up for Sparkpeople.
