I'm as addicted to food as an alcoholic is to booze. Losing weight and keeping it off is a one day at a time process for me and I'm taking that step today. A fellow Sparker posted a saying about food addiction on the page here and I just love it because it is so true: "alcoholics have to slay the dragon, while food addicts have to learn to walk the dragon three times a day." Food addiction is just as powerful as any other serious addiction, but it is unlike any other as well, because we can't live without food either. There's no going "cold turkey."

It's a brand new year, and I'm no longer defining myself by my past, and what I did, or didn't do. What matters most is I'm back on this journey, and it's working just like it always has. As long as I remember to stay focused, it will continue to work. I am so glad Spark People is still here to help me stay on track. Here's to a bright and shiny future and a healthier way of life for all of us.

    Always remember, at the end of the day, all you need is HOPE and STRENGTH. HOPE that it will get better, and STRENGTH to hold on until it does. Never forget how far you've come. Everything you have gotten through. All the times you have pushed on even when you felt you couldn't. All the mornings you got out of bed no matter how hard it was. All the times you wanted to give up but you got through another day. Never forget how much strength you have learned and developed. Simply put, never stop believing in HOPE because miracles happen everyday!

    Just stopping by your Spark Page to show some emoticon and to offer positive support. While on your weight loss journey, never give up. Believe in yourself and choose to shine despite how you may feel at that very moment. You may not be there yet, but you are closer than you was yesterday! Have a blessed and productive weekend!
