I've come a long way in this weight loss journey, and it's hasn't always been easy. I'm so grateful for the help and encouragement I have received from Spark friends! Without that encouragement I wouldn't be where I am now.

Having regained about 80 lbs. I'm at a point where I need to focus on myself again. I don't want to keep gaining. I need to make lists every day of what my goals are. No exceptions! No excuses!

Other's are doing it. So can I! Motivation is key! Time to find it, where ever I can!

Daily Positive Affirmations:

For me, dieting is "Permanent": I am NOT naturally thin. I must be eternally vigilant and avoid the temptations that I can't resist.

No amount of food would "EVER" be enough food. I'm "Just as Hungry" 80, 90, or 100 pounds (Or More) Overweight as when I stick to my goal weight.

�YOU CAN HAVE RESULTS OR EXCUSES, NOT BOTH.� �UNKNOWN

�YOUR LEVEL OF SUCCESS IS ONLY PREDETERMINED BY YOUR LEVEL OF EFFORT.�

"You have to find something that you love enough to be able to take risks, jump over the hurdles and break through the brick walls that are always going to be placed in front of you. If you don't have that kind of feeling for what it is you are doing, you'll stop at the first giant hurdle."
-George Lucas

Still have a ways to go. Need to work on finding improved ways to help me reach my goals. What I have been doing isn't working.
Finding the motivation to keep up with the workouts and healthy eating is what I need to work on.

    “The most beautiful people we have known
    are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle,
    known loss, and have found their way out of the depths.
    These people have an appreciation, a sensitivity,
    and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion,
    gentleness, and a deep loving concern.
    Beautiful people do not just happen.”
    ~Elisabeth Kübler-Ross~

    The best things in life aren't just things.
    They are people, and places, memories, and moments, and smiles and laughter.

    Life's not as hard as you think.
    You make mistakes which make you stronger. You fight to make it better.
    You love to make it right. You hurt to feel something.
    You regret to make it right the second time around.
    You forgive but never forget because at the time it's exactly what you wanted.
    Nobody's perfect, we all screw up.
    But all the little mistakes in life are worth it in the end.
    You're a strong person in the end and everybody is beautiful in their own way.
    so never give up, and be yourself. It's worth it in the end.
