Not Only Maintenance, But 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!

Wow, thanks, Marsha! Somewhere along the line, I realized that I could be kind to myself and get real when I needed to at the same time. All those things I resisted for the longest time because they seemed like too much work or "useless" actually DO work. Tracking, planning and prepping meals, weighing myself regularly, having a support system that I don't pull away from when I'm struggling, asking for specific help when I need it and taking an honest look at what I'm doing wrong when things aren't going as well as I'd like--they're all pieces of my puzzle that have come together and helped me work this thing out. I feel like my head's on straighter than it's ever been and it's not just helped me in terms of managing my weight. To steal from what NUOVAELLE once wrote, maintenance is a great life coach!

Thanks for commenting on my HM blog. I would like to do that race again, but not this year. Too close to a cruise we are going on. Maybe since you are faster than I am you will be ahead of the crowds.
