After I stumble I become less motivated and sometimes find it hard to get myself back on track. I heard a quote that helps remind me to keep at it. I don't know who said it but it helps me. "You don't drown by falling in the water. You drown by staying there."

Getting it right, finally. I read the book "Women, Food and God" by Geneen Roth. It has become my Bible, along with "The Spark". I have always known that food played a very obsessive role in my life...the book explains those obsessions and how to overcome them...just reading the information brought me to tears. I am grateful everyday for those who can bring us out of our insanity without therapy. I now eat to live not live to eat. I track my food and plan my meals and it is enough....
There is never a reason to give up...keep on keeping on and the answers will come....love and hugs everyone. HONEY
We all will hit plateaus in our journey to lose weight. The secret is to expect them, and simply be stronger during those days when the scale seems like the frozen fish it has become. Keep exercising, keep drinking your water, and keep sparking your food intake. 9
