I'm facing the fact that I have to adjust to my body instead of making my body adjust to my dictatorship. If I jump into weight loss without a plan I use the rest of my life, I only find myself starting over and over and over..... This time I am taking things slower, and I'm not letting frustration get the best of me when my schedule is interrupted for a day or even a week at a time. Instead, I'm trying to learn from the experience and see what does or doesn't work. So far I'm seeing more success and less frustration.

I have been playing with weight loss since I joined Spark People in the summer of 2007. During this time, I have had periods of success and periods of failure. I have found that too often I let other activities steer me away from the healthy patterns that I need to be successful at getting the weight off and keeping it off.

With the support of my family and Spark Friends, I can do this!!!!

    Looking for a Fun Challenge this Summer? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle. If yes, then consider joining the BL Challenge that starts early June. Each week 11 teams of 25 Active, do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle and If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Spring we had Gardening Time, Help Fill Peter Rabbit’s Basket and Bingo. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Summer challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the Blue Biggest Loser Icon, copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Frosted Fitness Fun Chit Thread.
