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.
