I've been a member on SparkPeople since 2008, and I've done well here. I've also done poorly, when I just get out of the habit of using all of these free resources. (That's self-defeating me - I don't know why I hang out with her so much, but I do).

What I would really like to do is get off of this weight roller coaster. When I manage to establish good exercise and eating habits, I can't let some odd incident end it for months until I become so sick with myself that I need to start over.

I am still a marathoner, and I've finally have a finish time that makes me proud. (It may be a slower pace for many, but for me, it feels right).
I would like to become less reliant on running as my main form of exercise. I need to lift weights with some consistency. I wouldn't mind going back on P90X. It's a tough workout, but I felt like i was making progress.
I would really like to stop using food as a stress reliever, source of comfort, best friend/worst enemy, favorite past time. Really, can't I just see it as a source of nutrition. Why does it so rule my life? (I'm looking at you, Food Network. Stop - Messing - With - My - Head!)

The only thing harder than the first step is the second, but after that, I know that it gets easier..... At least I think it does.
Oh well, here's hoping.

    Thanks for the support!

    A lot of it comes down to "bad" foods. There's a specific type of candy that can only be purchased in 400 or 500g bins, that I get a hankering for every once in a while. So I can't resolve the craving with a couple, and I'll eat the whole bin in 2 days.

    Stuff like that is where it came from. But I'm so active that losing the weight and staying within that range is REALLY hard (harder now than when I lose the weight walking and dancing only).

    I'll get there :) Thanks again!
