Keeping On Keeping On

I have just begun my 2nd year on Spark and have lost 34 pounds, 3 pounds to my first goal.

I had success with Atkins/High Protein approach over and over again. But each time, I think I can just 'return' to my younger eating patterns and not gain weight. And that magical thinking has not worked. I am now an official 'oldster' and have realized that it is time for my health to stay with the approach that really works best for my body, in this here and now.

My first year taught me new habits, new choices and absolutely confirmed that Atkins is my life-long health path. I look forward to continuing my journey to a still lower goal weight and to years of healthy maintenance. I will not abandon my knowledge and focus as I have in the past. I'm here to stay.

Thanks so much for your support and comment on my blog. It means the world to me, truly.

I loved the quote I found on another Sparker's page this morning...
"It's hard being overweight.
It's hard maintaining your weight.
And it's hard losing weight.
You just have to pick your hard. "

Hoping it speaks to you as it did to me.
Thanks again,
Michelle

“Not to give up under any circumstances should be the motto of our life: we shall try again and again, and we are bound to succeed. There will be obstacles, but we have to defy them. So do not give up, do not give up!
Continue, continue! The goal is ahead of you. If you do not give up, you are bound to reach your destined goal.”

The most influential and frequent voice you hear is your inner-voice.
It can work in your favor or against you, depending on what you listen to and act upon.
