I've come a long way in this weight loss journey, and it's hasn't always been easy. I'm so grateful for the help and encouragement I have received from Spark friends! Without that encouragement I wouldn't be where I am now.

Having regained about 80 lbs. I'm at a point where I need to focus on myself again. I don't want to keep gaining. I need to make lists every day of what my goals are. No exceptions! No excuses!

Other's are doing it. So can I! Motivation is key! Time to find it, where ever I can!

Daily Positive Affirmations:

For me, dieting is "Permanent": I am NOT naturally thin. I must be eternally vigilant and avoid the temptations that I can't resist.

No amount of food would "EVER" be enough food. I'm "Just as Hungry" 80, 90, or 100 pounds (Or More) Overweight as when I stick to my goal weight.

�YOU CAN HAVE RESULTS OR EXCUSES, NOT BOTH.� �UNKNOWN

�YOUR LEVEL OF SUCCESS IS ONLY PREDETERMINED BY YOUR LEVEL OF EFFORT.�

"You have to find something that you love enough to be able to take risks, jump over the hurdles and break through the brick walls that are always going to be placed in front of you. If you don't have that kind of feeling for what it is you are doing, you'll stop at the first giant hurdle."
-George Lucas

Still have a ways to go. Need to work on finding improved ways to help me reach my goals. What I have been doing isn't working.
Finding the motivation to keep up with the workouts and healthy eating is what I need to work on.

    Learn to listen. Opportunity could be knocking at your door very softly.

    Be a good listener. Your ears will never get you in trouble.

    If animals could talk, the world would lose its best listeners.
    ~Robert Brault
    "Silent" and "listen" are spelled with the same letters.
    ~Author Unknown
    We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.
    ~Epictetus
    Home is where you can say anything you like cause nobody listens to you anyway.

    Excuses are for people who don't want it bad enough. Stop saying I might, I can't,
    I won't, I'll try, maybe later, maybe tomorrow..start saying "I will" today.
