I joined Sparkpeople in September of 08, and since then I have made so many lifestyle changes. I've come a long way in the past few months. There are things about myself that I was not aware of before and I have had to learn ways to replace old negative patterns with healthy new ones. Believe me, it has not been easy and I continue to get up everyday and make the conscious choice to take care of my body and find new ways to stay motivated.

I am confident that I can reach my weight loss goals no matter how long it takes. I believe that the journey is just as important as the destination.

" Your motivation will be as strong as the amount of effort you put into making your own decisions (regardless of what they might be) with conscious awareness."

" Your motivation will be weak when you consider yourself to be helpless against your own urges, feelings."

"When I started focusing on the small, positive changes I was making in my diet and in my capacity to exercise, life became easier and more rewarding. That, I believe, is our role in this process. The rest is not up to you, and trying to control what you can't control is a prescription for failure. "

" The emotional upset of failed perfectionism can make it virtually impossible to stay motivated. "

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”
