As someone who has struggled with body image issues, identity issues, and weight my whole life, I feel like I have finally found a sound balance to each component of who I am. Though we're all always works in progress, I feel like I understand who I am and who I want to be in this world!

Finding that has had a huge impact on attacking this never-ending battle of emotional eating, self-doubt, and dwindling motivation.

I started with Spark in 2010, but strayed after an initial bout of weight-loss. I can hear myself saying, "Oh, I've got this now.. I can keep it up." While I haven't gained back all my weight, I'm seeing the scale creep, and I never made it to my ultimate goals!

I'm back with a vengeance, and looking to others for that extra kick in the behind to keep me motivated in times when it's wavering and hold me accountable when I can find it within myself.

    I love what you said on my blog. Thank you so much - it's exactly what I needed to know/hear! :) I'm with you - I've been 160 (well, 165) before and I don't think I'd like to be any lower. In fact, 165 is my goal weight. I'm gonna "friend" you.... emoticon
