The Journey Continues...

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!
4) Food journals and exercise really really really works to help weight loss.
5) Weight loss, fitness and healthy living are a journey not a destination.

My journey may falter but I always pick back up on it sooner or later.

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.

So good to hear from you! We are really enjoying this summer- the weather seems to be cooperating for getting out and enjoying the tailgate markets, hikes, etc.
