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!

I've gained this weight back many times. But now with SP I've learned the relentless determination it takes for long term success! -Marsha

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

Consult not your fears, but your hopes and dreams.
Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential.
Concern yourself not with what you have tried and failed in,
but with what it is still possible for you to do
~Pope John XXIII

Have a wonderful Wednesday
