"forget the past, for it is gone from your domain! forget the future, for it is beyond your reach! control the present! Live supremely well now! This is the way of the wise..." ― Paramahansa Yogananda -------- I maintained ~130 lbs for over two years with the help of sparkpeople before. I've been in the 190's to 200 lbs for years now, after having gained it all back due to my loss of interest and motivation after a diagnosis of schizoaffective disorder in 2012. I'm so grateful to have discovered the tracking app! Since I now have a full time job, the app will make it easier to track on the go, as I go. I'm so excited, finally, about taking this new journey into an even better than before me! Namaste.

    emoticon Robbin! I'm glad you stopped by to say hello!

    I love that you're going to do a yoga workshop with your hero. That is super exciting, and I hope it's an amazing experience. The movie also looks really interesting. I'm going to look into it and see if it will be playing in my area.

    I'm doing really well. It has been a little over a year since I started going to Overeaters Anonymous meetings and working the program, and I can't even begin to list the many, many ways my life has changed and improved. I haven't released as much weight as I'd like, but I have seen the success of others in the program, and I know it will happen in its right time. I am simply grateful and overjoyed to be releived of my compulsive food thoughts and all the negative thinking that accompanies them. I take it all one day at a time (sometimes, one hour at a time lol), and, each day I live in gratitude is a day I live in joy too.

    I hope you are also meeting your goals and keeping your spark lit!

    Hello emoticon How's it going?
    Thanks for the comment on my gratitude. I just wanted to share that, while I am truly grateful for the manifestation of my dreams, and it is indeed exciting, I have to admit that it's also super freakin' terrifying too. I have to work really hard not to mess it up, because fear is so powerful, and mine keeps telling me that I'm not worth it, don't deserve it, and won't be able to pull it off...I guess this is the perfect example of watch what you wish for lol
    Still, I'm accepting the fear and moving forward with it.

    Sending you some dream manifestation energy too...
