Welcome aboard!

Honesty with yourself is the first step IMHO then making my own health a priority over the roadblocks I kept creating. Now we're getting somewhere!

You are certainly correct about everything you've said in your message. We must learn to share and understand that others can help us with the hard things. And sometimes it's the simple answers that get us to thinking about that difficult issue. Fad dieting, I've been down that road so many times in my life. But for some reason when I joined sparkpeople.com I've been motivated to get the weight off and stick with the program. I've lost 14 pounds of fat that I've gotten sick and tired of. And it feels very good and I look better. And I've open up my life to many on this site and have received some wonderful advice. So you hang in there buddy and keep talking and advising each of us.

It's amazing sometimes what and how much you need to say once you actually start talking about it.
Sometimes we do things in our lives that are detrimental to our success... we don't talk about it, we don't think about it, maybe we beat ourselves up about it but we certainly don't do a damn thing about it.
Sometimes talking about your problems and sharing them with a bunch of anonymous people in an online community can be far more helpful then a Diet Counselor or a Psychiatrist visit.
The trick, of course, is to be truthful with yourself and trust the process.

*bad Austrian accent*
Now what have you learned from all the years of fad dieting?

Hi gang..I just finally got motivated with Sparkpeople after being signed up for a month or so, but it's time to get serious about health and nutrition..
I'm in it to win it, so to speak..
want to know more about me, you can read the Blog I just left on my page..
That was a lot of fun, cuz I've never left a Blog before in my life, and didn't even know what I was going to say, then my fingers just got a mind of their own, and next thing you know I had they were flying across the keyboard, and I managed to post my 1st blog...lol

Anyway, This is it, I'm motivated, and ready for the rest of my life to be a healthy one...
Nice to meet you all, and I wish you all success in your goals!!
Rick
