Hi Everyone! My name is Linda and have 122 pounds to lose to put me in a normal weight range. What the final weigh loss will be depends on how I feel & look. The most important thing is I must be comfortable with myself. I guess my title page says it all. I have been a member off and on for a few years now. It is time I hold myself accountable and get serious about losing weight. I am tired of yo yo dieting. I am really tired of the way I look and feel. I am fearful of developing heart disease or diabetes which runs in our family. I am now pre diabetic but the doctor said I can change that with weight loss. I lack discipline, self control and perseverance. But that is O.K. I am here to learn. When I think of my goal it puts a BIG SMILE on my face! I know when I lose the weight I will have more energy and my self esteem will soar! I know it's going to be a long road but I AM GOING TO TAKE ONE DAY AT A TIME! I'm in this for the long haul. Their seems to be so much help on the site that I know in my heart I will succeed! My short team goal is to leave Twoterville & enter into Onederland in 2018. I can do it! I will do it! I believe in myself. I'm not a quitter!

I AM GOING TO FINISH WHAT I STARTED :) Been off track for a while now. It's time to get back to Onederland It's been 2 1/2 yrs. since I was their & it was short lived. Only was their for a few days!. All my spark friends are now in 170ville or lower. It makes me sad that I could be their now! I refuse to give up! In 2018 I will write my success story! It will be my new beginning, my re-dedication to finish what I started. I will be successful, I WILL cross the finish line. Someday I will be able to say "I DID IT"
It's a one way road from now on!!!

4.A person who wants something will find the way. A person who doesn't will find an excuse!
7.The chief cause of failure & unhappiness is trading what you want MOST for what you want in the MOMENT!
8.It's NEVER too

    Congratulations on the awesome weight loss!!! 3 lbs is fantastic! I didn’t do near as well as I’d hoped, but maybe it’ll show up on the scale next week! I am focusing on mindful snacking & my step goal for now!

    I'm joining some friends and doing the "Three Month Mega Monster Daily Water Challenge," where you aim to drink 8 cups of water a day for three months. If you decide to sign up for the challenge, it shows up on your start page, under where you spin the wheel for points, as "My Spark Challenges." You can click anywhere in that box (the title or the image of the water bottle) and it will take you to the page to log in your glasses for the day. I do it as I go, if I'm logged into Sparkpeople throughout the day.
    If you want to join, visit my page and I'll send you the link.
    I'm normally not one to join in with challenges, but this is one I thought I could actually accomplish and would benefit from, as drinking water is helpful with weight loss. And really any liquid counts...not just water. So I'm looking at it as just a friendly reminder to stay hydrated, not a competition. Join us if you like!
