Same Old, Same Old

How many times have we -- those of us who are trying to shed weight -- put losing those extra pounds on the top of our New Year's resolutions list? Well, I can't recall a time in my entire life when that one important item HAS NOT been on my list.

Last Christmas when I joined SparkPeople, I vowed that this was my catalyst, my savior, my motivation to "get 'er done!" once and for all! As I sit here creating this post, I know there are more challenges and accomplishments still ahead.

Well, I admit that this past year wasn't a total bust. I have lost a few pounds, started a wonderful walking routine, learned to make time to create home-cooked, lower-calorie meals, and motivated myself to do better in other areas of my life where family and my employment situation are concerned. That's a pretty good start in 2012!

Still, gravity can be cruel to we ladies over that half century milestone. When we don't see instant results, we tend to get discouraged. This year will be different. In 2013, in addition to the above accomplishments, I'll stick to doing what's right, what works, what brings me joy and fulfillment. After all, consistently is the key and moderation is KING!

And maybe this year I'll also bring along another companion to share this new life journey. Traveling the highway and byways of life is so much sweeter with companionship!

Spark on...
