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

• 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....

Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity"

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

Is it wrong to fight time, to turn it back or push it forward? Time was never mine.

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?
