When I cheat on my goals, I cheat on MYSELF.

I've been a yo-yo dieter for the last 8-10 years, mostly off, sometimes on, with some brief success followed by dismal failure. I lost 60 pounds from August 2007-March 2008, which I quickly put back on when I stopped doing the things I did to lose the weight. I've been stuck in between 150-175 pounds ever since then, losing 5 pounds here, gaining 10 there, all the while hating my body and myself. I am in recovery for alcohol and drug addiction and I have been sober 2 years now, since April ...
I've been a yo-yo dieter for the last 8-10 years, mostly off, sometimes on, with some brief success followed by dismal failure. I lost 60 pounds from August 2007-March 2008, which I quickly put back on when I stopped doing the things I did to lose the weight. I've been stuck in between 150-175 pounds ever since then, losing 5 pounds here, gaining 10 there, all the while hating my body and myself. I am in recovery for alcohol and drug addiction and I have been sober 2 years now, since April 15th, 2011. In recovery, there is a saying "progress, not perfection" and this is a concept I struggle with when it comes to losing weight - I am an "all or nothing" girl and any failure on my part turns into a binge that lasts for days, weeks, sometimes months. I am trying to break the habit of alternating between punishing myself for slipping up and giving up entirely when I have setbacks.

You can look at a mountain as a wild place of beauty to view or paint or photograph from a safe distance; or a wild place capable of destruction like Mount St. Helens. Or you can look at it as a wild challenge that you take on one step at a time. When you begin the challenge you'll have no idea how long it will take to get to the top, but you know you will with the support of your team.

We are here for you! We'll help you climb that mountain. You'll find us on the rocky slopes, the shady valleys, the wild flower meadows, the glacier lakes.

Your teammates at the Weekly Challenge Team
