My Story is not unique...

My Journey:

My story is not unique. I have been lazy, and enjoyed it. Of course, the scale is my proof!

I first found Sparkpeople in January 2010. I can remember being both excited and overwhelmed with the website. It took me about a month to get my Spark page up and to figure out how everything worked. I did a lot of reading from the spark book, and started to follow my plan.

My Journey:

My story is not unique. I have been lazy, and enjoyed it. Of course, the scale is my proof!

I first found Sparkpeople in January 2010. I can remember being both excited and overwhelmed with the website. It took me about a month to get my Spark page up and to figure out how everything worked. I did a lot of reading from the spark book, and started to follow my plan. It was VERY time consuming at first. I did lose some of the weight, but I didn't stick with it. I could not completely dedicate the time for myself.

Eventually, I gained back all the weight I had lost...and then some. I did not want to have to buy new clothes...again. I needed to start thinking about my weight, my health and my happiness. Was I really happy right now? For the most part, yes....BUT...I am not happy with my fat. I hate my fat. It gets in the way, it jiggles, and it's ugly.

And then it happened...I blew out the butt seam in a pair of crop pants...in public. I was mortified! Was this a sign...or just bad karma? I knew instantly, it was time to make that commitment again.

I am grateful for all the support, and most of all...happy to see that no matter how many times you have to re-start...Spark is there for you.

Good Luck to all of you with your goals, I look forward to reading about them in your blogs! :) Jody

"Sometimes victory seems so far away because we measure it only by the goal. And end goals can seem overwhelmingly huge, daunting, and just plain hard to reach. But if we start measuring our victories by the smaller choices we make each day, victory won't seem so impossible.....
It's amazing the chain reaction that can start in your life with just one good choice.
Big things are built one brick at a time.
Victories are achieved one choice at a time.
A life well lived is chosen one day at a time.
Oh sweet friend, you are closer than you think to victory!"

Be your own hero, one choice and one step at a time! You might not see visible signs of progress right away, but as long as you keep doing your best, you will make progress and you will be victorious! I'm rooting for you! Remember, you're worth your best effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

“The difference between stepping stones and stumbling blocks is not in the event itself but how you think about it and what you do after it.
Every failure and setback can become part of your success or an excuse for quitting or failing.
People who develop the discipline of positivity are both happier and more successful."
-Michael Josephson

Just dropping by to say hello, Sparkfriend! Remember, you don't have to be perfect on this journey in order to make progress! As long as you keep trying...and never quit...you are already a success! Keep doing your best, because you are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

"Part of abandoning the all-or-nothing mentality is allowing yourself room for setbacks.
We are bound to have lapses on the road to health and wellness, but it is critical that we learn how to handle small failures positively so that we can minimize their long-term destructive effects.
One setback is one setback—it is not the end of the world, nor is it the end of your journey toward a better you.”
-Jillian Michaels
