Took a little detour and will no longer continue to punish myself for not being where I thought I would be if I stayed on track. Reminding myself that this is a journey, and it really doesn't matter how long it takes me to get there as long as I reach the finish line. All of this didn't happen over night. So why not just enjoy the scenery along the way...

Yes, I could continue to allow myself to get frustrated over the fact that my clothes are fitting a little snug, but I'm not going to waste my energy on that. Instead, I will channel it into determination and an honest effort.

Similar to the previous times where I've managed to lose weight, I acknowledge the connection between my past & how my association with food evolved. THIS IS A PROCESS, and I give myself permission NOT TO BE PERFECT all the time. I make my own choices, and for the ones that are not so great, there is nothing that says that I cannot make that choice again.

The "d" word does not exist in my vocabulary; I prefer to LIVE-IT!

    Hi there, I'm new here too and I see that we have a similar amount of weight to lose. Maybe we can encourage each other along the way.

    You are so pretty.
    Your SPARKPAGE will inspire you. PLEASE DON'T QUIT. You would not believe the number of people who join SPARKPEOPLE and then give up. It makes me so sad. Think about losing FIVE POUNDS and no more. Sign in every single day and STAY WITH THIS. I'm serious. This can be done, if you will just come here every single day. I know you want to get to that goal and you can do it.

    You can do this. Keep going. emoticon
