I have been called an overachiever more than once in my life. I really do hate to fail, and I know if I set my mind to something I can do it. I read a users page today that fit me pretty well. Basically it was a "Been There Done That" comment. I was successful and took off 70 pounds a few years back. I even held that for a year. I'm not sure what derailed me as much as it did, but I lost my focus on a healthier life.

I will not beat myself up over past mistakes. I am making progress with my exercise and nutrition goals. I even have hubby eating fish and using the exercise bike a little bit. The LCD Flat screen in that room was a big motivator for him, he does so love his TV time. I'm hoping to use the television to hook my laptop up to to do Spark exercises. It's a good thing we have other things in common.

I was happy to finish my motivation visual. I have a saying on it "There is no Giant Step that does it. It is a lot of Little Steps..." I have to keep reminding myself of this, so that I remain patient during this lifestyle change.
