Once upon a time I was very active on SparkPeople, it was a great time full of water, veggies, and lots of exercise. Since then things have changed. I started drinking more soda than water for the first time in all my (then) 27 years. I fell into a dark sedentary place filled with late night popcorn and fudge brownies. Then I saw the light...myself in a picture of my 6 month old son opening his first Christmas gifts. I've always been big but at that moment, I realized how much I had let myself go. I'm seriously huge, and I'm ashamed. I could blame it on all the life changes, moving away from the city into our first home, a fixer-upper that required so much time and energy that I didn't feel like a I *needed* to exercise. As we got more and more done on the house, I just got more and more relieved that all that "work" was over with. Then I found out I was pregnant. I had gestational asthma so honestly, I'm not sure I could have exercised had I tried...but I never tried. And the "morning" sickness....I threw up several times a day for over 6 months, yet I still gained 18lbs (how in the hell did THAT happen?!). But now that's all behind me, my baby boy is 6 months old, and I'm 40 pounds heavier than I've ever been. I know that this is not the life I want to live. I lost my way before but somehow I've found the path again and I'm ready to get started on this journey!

    "If I had to select one quality, one personal characteristic that I regard as being most highly correlated with success whatever the field, I would pick the trait of persistence. Determination. The will to endure to the end, to get knocked down seventy times and get up off the floor saying, "Here comes number seventy-one!"

    "You can do what you want to do, accomplish what you want to accomplish, attain any reasonable objective you may have in mind - not all of a sudden, perhaps not in one swift and sweeping act of achievement - but you can do it gradually, day by day and play by play, if you want to do it, if you work to do it, over a sufficiently long period of time."

    On the bathing-tub of King T'ang the following words were engraved:
    "If you would one day renovate yourself, do so from day to day.
    Yea, let there be daily renovation."

    "One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering."
