My mantra is 'focus and flexibility.' That means I try to focus on diet and exercise most of the time, but I know life isn't always sunny and the road isn't always straight and flat. So I allow some flexibility and I ENJOY it without guilt. Just keep moving forward on your journey and you'll make progress.

Also, another mantra, come to think of it, is that my life is and will always be a work in progress. Feeling good and being healthy mean that I can never give up my new healthy lifestyle. It's a part of me now.

Believe it or not, I have been a member of SparkPeople quite some time. However, I have not actively done anything about my lifestyle change and weight loss other than joining and reading some of the blogs. Today was a good day; and the best day to begin becoming a new me!

I like many women am sick and tired of wearing the 20's. The burden of my weight affected my ability to enjoy myself - and mingle with his friends. I cannot continue to avoid pictures or avoid looking at them once their taken because of my weight.

I am disgusted that my body image has been projected onto my daughter. She looks like me - in more ways that one! How can I worry about her health and weight, when I'm not doing anything to change me?????

Rome wasn't built in a day, nor did I become overweight overnight! I recognize that I have to crawl before I walk - walk before I run. Tracking and blogging will help me to take the baby steps required before I soar!

No excuses - I resolve to be a better me.

Go D-Dub!!!!!

Getting the New Year off to a good start with a focus on being a better me - that way I will have better interactions with everyone I encounter! Must remember two things:

1) Rome was not built in a day.
2) If you have a bad day or miss achieving your nutritional goals, dust yourself off and try again.

I've got a new attitude because I realize that it's one day at a time, one meal at a time, and one step at a time.

One day, one meal, one choice, one step to a new me! Go D-Dub!

Hi. I was surfing around for a new team and this one seems perfect because I've been trying to do more workouts after work (as opposed to morning) and that hasn't been going so well for me. I need some supporters to cheer me on and challenge me, so this seems like the right place to be. A little about me: I've been a SP member for several years, but I never really got very far because I always put exercise above diet--and at my age (55), that just wasn't working! So back in September, I got MUCH more serious about my diet and I have been successful at taking off most of the pounds I wanted to lose. However, I've been floundering a bit lately with both diet and exercise, so I want to change my lifestyle (again!) and do more workouts in the evening (and clean up my diet, of course, but that's for another team, I think). I workout at home, and I don't really mind exercising the morning, but I find I just don't really care for the time constraints of early morning exercise, and I usually don't feel like doing anything really strenuous in the early morning, either. I like my strength workouts, but just don't want to do them at 5:00 a.m.! So thank you, in advance, for the support of this team.

Donna
