That's an awesome quote CraftsFan.

Thanks for sharing it. If you don't mind, I'm going to put that on my sparkpage and look at that every once in awhile to motivate me. :D

Have a great day everyone! emoticon

Hi all, I am on Day 3 of making lifestyle changes. My calorie range is running between 1000 to 1200 for now.

If you don't want to keep starting over, don't give up in the first place.

Hi everybody, have a wonderful day.

DLYNN1113, your comment made me think about the Spark Diet that I am following.

You said: "Isn't it amazing how one little thing can throw us so off track."

If we twisted it a little bit, we can have;

"Isn't it amazing how one little change at a time in our lifestyle can create momentum and lead us to our goal?"

Isn't it amazing how one little thing can throw us so off track when it comes to ourselves, yet I bet many of us wouldn't let someone we love give up with a little mistake. We need to give ourselves that grace we show to others. We made a mistake, ok, we don't make it tomorrow, and we go on. I'm inspired by all of those willing to pick back up and start again. Each day is what you make it. Thanks for all the honesty in posting here. It really does help us all.

Hi everyone, I am back on track since Sunday. I am doing well so far. Last evening I was looking at pictures from our vacation last week. I was floored when I saw a picture of myself. I looked like an old frumpy lady. Do I really look that bad? Is that really me? Yes it is and if I continue on the path I was on I will only look worse. I have been eating whatever and how much of whatever believing it was ok and I look ok...blah, blah, blah. I don't look ok and I know the way I have been eating will only cause damage. I am ready to make real changes and really lose weight. It is not only about weight but also about being healthier. So here goes...

I hope to be more active on this team as I see there is much motivation from all of you and that is what I need.

Amy

Thank you. I've been so discouraged again. I wish I could just get it together and do this! I'm still trying. I think I need to post and read more often maybe that will keep me going. I'm afraid I will die if I don't get this done soon. Sigh...

I have been cycling between my lowest weight and anywhere from 3 to 5 pounds higher. This has been going on for a couple of months now and I am trying to analyze what it is that I'm doing. I still try to get 10,000 steps a day but I have definitely been lax about cardio and strength training. My friend is here for the summer and we usually meet for lunch a couple days each week. I know that she is a bad example for me. She is a dessert junkie and I have been following suit. (Although I get the mini desserts at Applebee or Big Boy) It all adds up!

I am going to start fresh and get back to basics. Here's to beginning again! emoticon

I've learned it is not how many times I've tried it is that I never stop trying that is most important. The past is the past, I will take what I have learned and apply it this time. Each attempt I gained knowledge, I saw what worked for me and what didn't. I know what motivates me and what works is being among those that truly understand the issues that weight creates. I am knocking down those walls, eating healthier, finding that me time and doing something just for me, that in the end is a gift to not only myself but the people I love.

No holding back this time. I will do this, for me, and it will be an amazing journey. Today is a gift and I will embrace it., share it, and give it away so that others can know the Joy it has given me. God Bless you all. Have a wonderful day. Visit my page, my team (journey to a new You), make it happen and never never give up!

Good Morning Robin,

To me half the battle is in KNOWING that there is a battle to fight......
I just blogged about my self destructive life. It's not easy to fight the battle that's down deep inside myself but I win by just acknowledging that I have a battle to fight and then getting back up after I have knocked myself down.

There is no right or wrong in weight loss and life style changes. It's a day to day, minute to minute battle that I have to fight. When I do something stupid, and I ALWAYS seem to do that very often, then I have to write it down and learn from that experience.
We have ALL been there time after time. We will never make it to the finish line with out stumbling, but I'm determined to crawl across that line if I have too!
Chin up Robin...... WE CAN DO THIS!

Here I go again, been down this same road over and over. Its not that I don't think that I deserve to live healthy and happy. I am my own worse enemy.
Have just lost 15 lbs (since Feb.), but, I am afraid that I am going to sabotage myself. So I am here to prevent that.
Ok now I feel better....LOL emoticon

Hi y'all.

I'm Denise and I've been a member for a while but haven't started the real work of getting healthy. I'd love to get to know everyone and be a motivator as I am motivated by y'all.

I'm not sure of the way things are done so fill me in.

Thanks so much!

The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours - it is an amazing journey - and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins. - Bob Moawood
