The Journey Continues...

Almost to the third year here on Sparkpeople, not to goal and not giving up. Since January of 2013 have been back to being more consistent and although progress is very slow, I can see my body changing.

Things Sparkpeople has taught me:
1) Never give up.
2) Misery may love company but being in the company of happy people (i.e. Sparkfriends) will get you through the misery.
3) Confidence is a learned trait and fake it until you make it!

5) Weight loss, fitness and healthy living are a journey not a destination.

Thanks for the goodie! More, I loved hearing from you. This past year has been a struggle for me as I've faced some physical problems that have kept me from being as active as I once was, but I'm not giving up. I'm starting to do better now and I just have to go back to my old habots- eating right and exercising consistently.

Thank you for the goodie Tracy... I am hoping that I do ok... So many people have so much confidence in me but I know where I have fallen short. I'm trying hard to find my Zen... I am so hoping that things don't fly south, this is going to be a tough course and I can't help but feel under prepared.

Trying to be positive...

Happy Sunday. Hope you're summer is going great. Are you still on track to do all you can today to reach your goals tomorrow? If so, great! If not, what can you change today that will help you feel accomplished? One little thing. Drink more water? Cut out soda? Go for a walk? Small changes add up.
