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.

    Thank you for the kind words! I'm really happy to have found this group - it's the motivation I need to really get me focused. So funny how much I love exercising outside now - don't know why I was so resistant before! And yay east coast! :)

    I noticed your status said you were in need of a pick me up, kick in the butt talk from someone. Well, I can't kick you, but I can encourage you to keep going. You CAN do this. I know that sometimes you just want to veg out, but you have started a journey that you can't stop. Get up and move and you will feel better, I promise! We are all here for you and we have faith in you. You are a Spark Person! emoticon
