I had a therapist who always used to say "You're not ready until the very minute that you're ready. If you're not ready, you're just not. As much as you may want to be ready, it won't happen until you actually ARE ready." I've found this to be true over & over & over again. I've quoted it so many times that people attribute the thought to me now...

I've been up & down the scale for the past 30 years. I've been much heavier than I'd like for over 10 years this time. I knew it had to change, but motivation completely escaped me. I wasn't ready.

On August 26, 2009, I went for a physical, knowing that I really needed to make a change. Fortunately, all my tests came back totally normal. I'm very healthy, but I wasn't very happy. I'd put on 42 lbs over the past 2 years and I was not going to stay healthy if I continued on this path.

On August 26th, I was finally ready! The light switched on. I turned the corner. Whatever analogy works, I was ready! I am so grateful to SparkPeople for being such a fantastic tool! (And being free, one I could afford!)

I have begun Michelle's marvelous makeover! And I am SO excited to experience how great I'm feeling already!

    Hope all is well with you today! I tried the zumba class. Wow, I am really out of shape! I must say it was fun though. So many different kinds of people there which was nice, not just all skinny girls!!
