Welcome to my Sparkpage !! I'm glad to have you stop by. Please leave a comment, because I can use all the inspiration that I can get.

Hello, my name is Rebecca and I'm a yo-yo dieter. Yes, whether you're losing and gaining 100 pounds or just 15 pounds you can be a yo-yo dieter. When you live a healthy lifestyle, then just stop and go back to your old ways, you're a yo-yoer. That's me, and it's got to stop.

I know how to do this, I've done it before. I've just got to stick with it and stop letting other things take priority.

I want to set my mind on being healthy for reasons other than the number on the scale or the size of my jeans. I will eat healthy to make my body feel better. I will exercise to keep my body strong.

Basically, I want to be the healthiest that I can be. I want to be physically ready for whatever life throws at me.

Join me on my journey, and make the most of your own journey. Together we can change our lifestyles for the better.

    All that follows is my opinion and what works for me: At this point in the weight loss game, I'm still pushing hard - pushing my motivation and will power to keep me going because I have a LOT of weight to lose. Succumbing to treats (that aren't planned), or eating a treat every day, or choosing a treat instead of a meal isn't worth it to me.

    Yes, I know that if I go off plan one day it is not going to destroy me. One day off plan isn't going to make me stop. I planned for a junior twist ice cream cone yesterday and it was delicious but I still hit 1250 for the day. A high calorie cookie because I'm bored and hungry, just isn't worth it to me for the mental damage it would do.

    There's a fine balance between controlling your food and heading to a food disorder and the other side of the coin knowing that if you kept a box of Girl Scout cookies in the house you'd plow through them in about 10 seconds flat.

    The component of this I was trying to get across in my blog post was that when you are in a CERTAIN MOOD - stepping off the ledge would not be good. It's like the alcoholic looking at the drink and thinking "sobriety isn't worth it" and you suddenly find yourself in a freefall you can't stop.

    No, I will not be leading a team and actually, I'm on the Resolute Renegade team and for the most part, this team has nothing to do with the rest of the BLC teams other than reporting our weight each week. Honestly, I'm not sure why they're even part of BLC since they don't have any interaction with anyone else.

    But, I'm okay with it as I'm also doing the BL Challenge and there, the team I'm on (Black Panthers) competes with all the other teams.

    The Resolute Renegades are running an interim support group for between BLC36 and BLC38 so I'm never really not doing a challenge. emoticon

    Stomp was interesting and parts of it were very loud. I don't think I'd want to see it again and I wish I had been in the front row as a lot of the movements were at floor level.

    Hello Rebecca.

    I'm glad that my blog about BLC37 motivated you and I hope you are successful during it.

    Other than that, how are you? Haven't heard from you in a while.
