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.

    emoticon you did post on my blog yesterday, and thank you for that. (It was on page 1 and you just posted on page 2. I agree with you that 'gun control' is not the answer, but for one thing: How and WHY did the person who owned the gun store flippantly sell this assault rifle ........ with tons of ammo to a 18 or 19 year old ........ (and though a few say he did a background check, he did in fact NOT! ..... Latest is the man now feels so guilty (gee, really?) that he has closed the doors to his business!! .... Now there is talk of changes possibly (and hopefully made) so that there will be teachers and staff ABLE to carry guns to be able to defend their students against attacks! ..... Look at all the places that have security (yes, with guns) .....But not schools? ........How ludicrous and those who kill KNOW there is no protection there and that is why they choose a school .... or a church last year!! .... How insane is this to have NO defense ......Sitting ducks and we just can't continue to live in the dark ages!
