Without Struggle There Is No Progress

I've been a member of Spark since Aug. of 07, although I didn't start using it until Jan. of 08. I lost 33 lbs. and maintained it for over a year. When I turned 50 I looked and felt the best I had in years.
Life got busy and I slowly gained it all back plus some extra. I've been struggling to get back on track for over a year. I do well for a few days and then I fall off the wagon. I can't seem to find and keep my motivation.

Life got busy and I slowly gained it all back plus some extra. I've been struggling to get back on track for over a year. I do well for a few days and then I fall off the wagon. I can't seem to find and keep my motivation.
Over the years of losing and not learning how to maintain I've learned that I have to do exercise I enjoy, eat some of the foods I like, and not try to be perfect.
I'm going to try again to get this weight off. I felt so much better and better about myself when I was thinner. I'm not going to make promises that I will reach certain goals by specific dates. That has worked for me in the past, but not lately. I don't want to break any more promises to myself so I'll take it slow.

I keep meaning to tell you thank you for the card you gave Alia -- that was very generous of you. She had a great time & wasn't expecting to be paid for it. Hope you have a great vacation, that baby waits for you, and we'll take care of the plants for you!

Merry Christmas in JULY!!!! Tomorrow on July 25th, the Weight Watcher Team will be celebrating Christmas! It will be time to give ourselves our "gifts" of better health --- either with better habits, losing the pounds we pledged earlier this month, drinking water, eating veggies --- whatever "gifts" you've been working toward!!! Hopefully we all have something to celebrate b/c we worked hard all month toward earning our "gifts" ---- make sure you stop by the Team Page and give an update on how you're doing with our FLYING HIGH through JULY challenge!!!!

Merry Christmas and a Happy Healthy "Holiday" on July 25th!!! And we still have another 6 days left in the month to keep on FLYING HIGH!!! We CAN do this ---- let's make it happen!
