Hi emoticonTAMSINCONTROL and emoticon to SparkPeople...Nice to have you with us on the journey to a healthier lifestyle again.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

I did the same thing and since my grand restart five years ago I'm back within under twenty pounds of my ultimate goal and this time I realize there is no quitting in healthy living. You *can* do it! Welcome back!

Every day is Day 1. emoticon Remember that in the morning before you put your feet on the floor. Make a mental note to self about your plan for the day, from the first thing you will put in your mouth to what exercise you love to do. Have a good day every day.

Happy New Year!

I've been a member at SP off and on since 2007. My first time around I did very well. However, as time went on, I slipped away from my healthy habits and life happened. I've tried to return multiple times with no success other than 5 or so pounds. Since my success all those years ago, I have surpassed my original starting weight and have shamefully gained over 80 pounds. I hate typing that, but I need to see it to let it sink in.

Every time I try to start up again I struggle to find a team that works for me. They're all filled with people who have come to know each other well and I end up feeling left out. Unfortunately, my main reason for being here is for the support. I can pep talk myself until I'm blue in the face, but it doesn't help me as much as having others like myself around me doing the same thing.

This time I've signed up for Premium coaching and I am really hoping to finally make this my final commitment. I've changed my screen name to remind myself that this is MY journey and nobody can stop me or hinder my progress other than myself. I am owning it.

Hoping to find a few new Spark friends! Feel free to read my recent blog to learn a little bit about me. More to follow...
