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.

    I define comfort as self-acceptance. When we finally learn that self-care begins & ends w/ourselves, we no longer demand sustenance & happiness from others. Jennifer Louden
