Keep Trying

I decided one day that I needed outside help and searched the internet and found SparkPeople. I started keeping track of everything I ate (and tasted) and I did a little of the recommended exercises everyday. I decided since I couldn't do much that I would do something different every day.

Life is a Game

Making life a game is what keeps me on track to accomplishing my goals. Setting up goals and then keeping track of how well you are doing can be hard sometimes in life, but if you set it up as a game and give yourself something to "win" may help keep you motivated.

Motivation

When things get tough, or the day is stressful, remember why you chose to go down this path, how much better you will look and feel, all the things you will be able to do when the weight is gone. When you have a bump in the road remember "every day is new with no mistakes."

Share the Journey

Sharing your journey with others, helping them while you help yourself, will aide you to stay on track. Have an accountability partner. Motivate someone who is having a hard time. Help someone who's just starting the trip to healthy living. It all helps to keep me on track.

Love yourself

No Matter who you are, you are unique, start loving yourself first then everything will fall in place and you will make progress in all aspects of life. Don't let others judge you or their judgement guide you on who you are.
