After many,many countless attempts at weight loss, trying every single fad diet and magic diet pill and program, I realize that there is no "secret" or magic to it. It's all about a lifestyle change, finding what works for you & sticking with it.

I've been with Sparkpeople for a long time and had many ups and downs. About 9 years ago, I met goal and was able to maintain goal range for about 5 years or so. Slowly but surely, I backslid and the weight piled back on. I never left Sparkpeople, but life got in the way and I was not very active on here at all and quit tracking all together.I had 2 foot surgeries (one on each foot) this past summer- one in May & when that one healed enough - one in August, which also helped me to pack on some extra weight. I am now at my heaviest in nearly 10 years. I have about 25 pounds to lose, again.

I tried many times along the way to restart, but it never really lasted more than a few days or a week at a time. I always pout everything before me and my journey, figuring I'll get to it some day. That "someday" is TODAY.

Today is the day I recommit to taking my life, my health back. One day at a time, One pound at a time.

I am actually really excited about this new chapter in my life and I look forward to making more new friends along the way! We can & will do this! We are all in this together :)
