I have been a SparkPeople user for years. On again, off again since 2003! I have had both victories and failures along the way. I have turned my back on the basics of tracking my food and exercise many, many times. Always gaining back what ever weight was lost and mental stability was found the minute I stopped the program. I am almost 50 now and the mantra of "when I lose this weight I will..." has finally lost its luster. I want to live my life now! I think the tipping point was a combination of the forced isolation and the knowledge that being stuck at home was showing on my hips and face. I took a stand on May 7th that my time has come and convinced myself that I really wanted to do this. To be at a healthy weight for my size I needed to lose 40 pounds. As of today I am down 13 and feel great!
How long has your journey been? And how far have you moved towards your ultimate goal?
Look forward to who you are going to be, not back at who you've been.
