Maintaining 80 Pound Loss with SP & Relentless Determination!

I'm 80+ lbs below my all time high and I've lost over 50 pounds since Dec. 2008. In 2009 I achieved a healthy BMI 25. Then with SparkPeople I was able to achieve BMI 21, a weight I always wanted!

Don't waste your life in doubts and fears:
spend yourself on the work before you,
well assured that the right performance of
this hour's duties will be the best preparation
for the hours or ages that follow it.
~~Ralph Waldo Emerson~~

I think Mr. Emerson knew what he was talking about-this is how
we need to move forward in life-well prepared instead of doubting ourselves.
Have a Superb Saturday

just to clarify - i didn't mean it as a recommendation for *you* to switch to a vegan diet, but rather that i found it surprising to hear whole milk promoted as a necessity for athletic performance when a) it goes against the health recommendations for the general public and b) with so many vegan athletes today, there is plenty of evidence for success without it!

The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are
feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in
such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step
out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.

Have a terrific Thursday
