There are days in which the thought of making healthy food choices seems inconceivable, unreachable, and insurmountable. These days, it becomes a struggle just to recall what the next hour’s goal should be much less the overall goal of reaching a healthy weight.

I’ve been yo-yoing up and down since September 2010. With my weight, my motivation and commitment to reach a healthy life style has been just as erratic as my weight. Some days are worse than others…I’ve experienced days of in which I‘ve spent hours upon hours contemplating extreme measures in hopes of getting a “jump start.” I’ll have “A-ha” moments in which I realize that I’ve been working towards this body for 31 years and therefore, it will take ongoing consistency to reach a healthier form.

I've been utilizing SparkPeople throughout the past two years. In this time I've found some amazing resources, utilized the community groups, and followed some individual blogs that have resonated with my personal experiences... I've found comfort and reassurance... I hope to be more consistent in utilizing these resources and hopefully reaching the goals I've set out for myself for this year.

    Thank you so much for the nice comments on my page! I found something that I thought could help after reading your last blog. It's from a website called precision nutrition. There's a lot on there about just super easy steps on keeping with a diet and succeeding in it. They put a very easy spin on things that was easy for me to understand. Hope it helps.
