My first round I lost 30 lbs and exercised for 422 days for at least 10 minutes. Life happened. I'm not even sure how. I stopped making good choices.

Well enough of that. It's time to exercise daily again, no matter how little. Just something. It's time to track my food making better choices as the days pass. It's time to lose the 10 lbs I gained back, ok, in reality 17. 10 lbs gained from a weight I'm good at maintaing. Either way, the scale went in the wrong direction...

So here I am. Life is overwhelming and I'm going to put in the work to succeed. At least I'm going to try...

"Failing" is only failure if you quit; otherwise it's a learning opportunity

Found this encouraging:

If you stumble and make mistakes, that's not useless. Think of it as fertilizer. Sure it feels like crap, but it will help you grow.

    Hi. I haven't seen you here for a while. I don't know if you remember this, but sometime ago you gave me a hybrid car sparkgoodie. Just wanted to update you that I now have not one car but 2 cars! Thanks to God for the miracles he works in our lives. Take care and see you here soon.

    If you're back, I'm back. Can we commit to being consistent for - a week? a month? a day? :)

    Sounds like you had a perfect day. Savor the memories....and go right now and save/post those pictures. You'll be glad you did.

    May your life continue to be blessed in joyous ways, Amen!
