What challenges me will not frighten me!

I've been on SP for 18 months now and while I have not reached my weight loss goals, I have gained a new perspective on this journey from all of the information I have acquired and reading about the struggles of other sparkers.

I recently turned 60 and to say it didn't impact me to some extent would be a lie. Of course, it impacted me. I turned around and my youngest child is now 21 (my oldest 31) and I was entering a new decade. My back started hurting and sciatica I hadn't ...
I've been on SP for 18 months now and while I have not reached my weight loss goals, I have gained a new perspective on this journey from all of the information I have acquired and reading about the struggles of other sparkers.

I recently turned 60 and to say it didn't impact me to some extent would be a lie. Of course, it impacted me. I turned around and my youngest child is now 21 (my oldest 31) and I was entering a new decade. My back started hurting and sciatica I hadn't experienced since pregnancy has flared up. But the thing is I know it isn't aging but rather the fact that after exercising regularly for a few years, I sat down. Yes, that's right, I sat down. I stopped going to Zumba and walking and all other forms of aerobic exercise.

I refuse to let these small inconveniences of minor pain rule my life. I don't have to take it as a natural process. I can live an active, healthy lifestyle while managing a few aches and pains. I am not giving up and I am not giving in.

2015 will be a year of new challenges and I plan on meeting them head on. I will move past my fear rather than giving in to it.

"If it doesn't challenge you, it cannot change you."

“How would your life be different if…You didn’t allow yourself to be defined by your past?
Let today be the day…You stop letting your history interfere with your destiny, and awaken to the opportunity to release your greatest self.”

"Many things are simply not going to happen with just one, or three, or even a dozen attempts. Yet anything becomes possible with enough persistence.
Keep going, and allow your efforts to build upon one another. Keep going, and transform the disappointments into achievements.
You have what it takes to keep going, because all it ever takes is just one more step forward.
Keep going, and work your way steadily to the richest rewards you can imagine."
-- Ralph Marston

"We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily differences we can make which, over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee."
