Winning is Not Quitting

August 2010~ It was VERY hard to weigh myself or to even get motivated this first year of my "stealth visiting" Spark People. It was painful to admit to all my past failures of yo-yo dieting and being up 30 + pounds....again.

October 2011~ Fortunately, something finally clicked for me and I joined in some of the activities and challenges SP offered to help me make weight loss a reality.

March 2014~Back to pre-holiday weight. I know that I will always be a work in progress but I am close and 2014 is my year to make and maintain goal!

No more diets for me. Instead I try to do my best everyday to live a healthy and fit lifestyle. No More beating myself up and NO more quitting.

I have a fantastic, long time SP accountability buddy who gave me one of my favorite sayings: It's time to"STOP THE MADNESS!"

"The first step to living the life you want is leaving the life you don't want.
Taking the first step forward is always the hardest.
But then each step forward gets easier and easier.
Each step forward gets you closer and closer until eventually, what had once been invisible starts to be visible.
And what had once felt impossible starts to feel possible."
-Karen Salmansohn

I know what you mean about missing the SPAT. I forgot to put mine on and missed it all day. I really like tracking my exercise. I am glad yours is working again.

Have a relaxing weekend with Easter.
