Update - It has been over a year since I joined Spark People and I can honestly say that it has changed my life. I am calmer about this whole weight loss journey, and rather than going on the roller coaster of intense dieting followed by desperation and bingeing, I am building healthy habits. I hurt my knee and am going to have surgery later this summer. It has taken me a while to figure out how to exercise around it, and my calorie burning part of the fat loss equation has tapered off, as has my fat loss. But I know it is a temporary pause as I get my health back. I started a new career as a personal trainer and love it. My injury reminds me that it is important to learn how to work around injuries and not let it stop me from being active. Also, I need to take it a bit easier so as not to injure myself.

I have an affirmation that makes me smile when I think about it. Here it is:

I LIVE a vibrant, healthy, active, loving, creative, abundant, joyful life, surrounded by beauty, and people who love me, and support me, in being my best, and giving my gifts.

Since I have been more or less chanting that affirmation as I walk the beach, or hike, it seems like it is a reality.

To one of my very favorite Beautiful women (inside and out):

"BEAUTIFUL WOMAN AWARD! YOU are BEAUTIFUL inside and out".

Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out".

I hope all is well for you. ☺
