The Time Is Now

"Commitment leads to action. Action brings your dream closer."

After a promising start here at SP in 2009, I lost my way a bit, ignored this site, came back, and then left again..I am now back for the third time and this time plan to stay! Third time is the charm!

I live in Ontario, Canada with my hubby, cat and dog. Our two daughters have just recently moved out. I work out of a studio in my house and sculpt multimedia fantasy and other figures. I have gained weight steadily since my youngest (now 25) was born, tried many methods to lose, and am determined that this will be the answer!

I'm going to start listing some quotes here that I feel are excellent:

"I answer to myself and no one else. The person looking back at you in the mirror is the one you have to answer to every day." Dr. Wayne Dyer

"Don't let an old person move into your body" - Wayne W. Dyer

UPDATE July 23, 2015....Oh boy! Six years since I started here at SP. I've lost and gained, lost and gained and important to note, for the last three years I haven't really been here. Kind of tells a story doesn't it?

Well, long story short - I am back and totally pumped to get this extra poundage (110 lbs) off for once and all. So thankful I had SP to return to!

Attending weekly TOPS meetings for weigh-ins and support

Slowly getting back to walking outside and with Leslie Sanson vids

I work from the home as an artist, sculpting OOAK art dolls, primarily in the fantasy (faerie, elfs, etc) genre.

Thanks for your note Susan. I am no longer a member of TOPS.
It's a great organization and helps many people reach their goals & give support along the way. I think it's one of the best, along with SparkPeople.

I joined originally in 1981. I was with them till after I moved to Florida in 1987. Stayed with them in several places around Florida. I finally dropped out for quite a few year. recently I tried it again. It just did not fit my lifestyle. Loved it years ago. The group I went to recently last year was very nice. Great people, great support etc, but like I said, it just no longer fits my life style.

Enjoy, I know WE CAN DO IT!

I am still writing every day... just a "check in" with myself to see what I need, what I think I should be doing (apparently if you write that enough times you will be more likely to do it eventually), and trying to eat clean. The big thing for me right now is not feeding my food monster crap. I'm trying not to snack at night either. No diet still. Probably never that.. just cutting out the bad behaviours. You will figure things out.
