Forget the exact words...just the gist below

Progress not perfection
Non scale victories
Unrealistic goals can often end in disaster
Happiness is a state of mind, not the shape of my body

How to think like a successful person in many areas of my life - not like a dieter.

Forgiving myself when making poor health choices, tommorrow s another day
setting attainable goals
finding an activity that I enjoy
eating breakfast is a good thing
going for long periods without food is a bad thing
that the secret to losing weight... IS ME

I have learnt to be aware of my body, what I put in it, how important it is to exercise. I have learnt that there is a wonderful opportunity to make extraordinary friends on Spark. I have learnt about food and how to nourish my body. And the list goes on....

I learned that to lose weight you don't have to pay for surgery or take weird supplements or cut food groups out of your diet. You need to eat to lose weight. The most valuable idea is that you have to change your diet to lose weight, it can't just be exercise alone. I used to just exercise and hope the pounds would fly off. It wasn't until I used the food journal tool properly that I lost 55 pounds! emoticon

how important tracking is, not drinking your calories away and that I'm not the only one that has struggled with their weight.

I was moved when I came across this blog. I have learned so much from this site, I think sometimes I take it for granted. There is an abundance of resources and information.

What have you learned from using the SparkPeople site?
