emoticon UPSTATEGAL and emoticon to SparkPeople and the team...Nice to have you with us on the journey to a healthier lifestyle again. emoticon emoticon

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Willpower is a 'tricky' thing! A better way to say it is 'the power of the will' or.. the way we think! Einstein said, "The truest definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results!" Yet he also said .. “We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”

Simply stated . . : If what you have been doing is not working... try something/someone else's approach to the same problem!

Motivation?? Mine was (at least) two-fold! One is .. I saw myself naked in a full length mirror.. not pretty and certainly not GQ material! I am not 'Healthy' Poor eating habits..poor choices.. listless attitude.. My second motivation is on my Spark page!! Now that is something I need to be ready and in shape for!! By then . . I will be on the cover of GQ.. setting records.. and I will have learned a lifestyle and will have created habits to endure the years!

I too am from Upstate New York.. !

I tried Sparkpeople a few years ago but I never committed to it like I should have. So here I am giving it and myself another chance at success. If I could just overcome my low willpower and low motivation,I know I could do it! I welcome any positive advice ........
