Hello to everyone and wishing each of you a Great Holiday Season even in this kind of weather we are having...This topic is a good question for me, Who am I and what have I done to my body?? I think that's why I have not been successful in my goal of losing weight and maintaining it is because I really don't understand myself...when or under what circumstances I tend to eat much...I hope for this new coming year 2009, this will be a start for me...Thanks.

There is a famous quote that goes something like "The longest journey begins with one step." We see our progress and the journey is easier. What a kick to reach into the recesses of our closet and bring out something that seemed would never fit or had been years since it fit and suddenly, it does! Woo Hoo! and You Go Girl!

Congrats. Your story is very inspiring. Merry Christmas.

The joy of being, which is the only true happiness, cannot come to you through any form possession, achievement, person

or

even-through anything that happens. That joy cannot 'Come'

to you

ever. It emantes from the formless dimention 'Within You',

from

consciouness itself and thus is one with who you are.

Love and peace,

That is so fantastic! Fitting into smaller sizes was such a driving force for me as I made my way through my weight loss journey. I truly hope that this is the first of many similar, wonderful events that will transpire for you as your own journey towards reaching your goals continues!


Happy holidays & all the very best to you for 2009!

Depression is anger without the motivation.

I think depression runs rampant in society today because we are all so obsessed with making a living instead of living our lives.

Live your dreams, it's not as hard as it may seem...On your hopes you must lean...From your fears you have to wean yourself.

Congratulations!I know how empowering that feeling of accomplishment is.That's awesome! I have been a member of Sparks for a while, but never comment or actually participate. Here it is Christmas and I realize (after trying on the pants my mom gave me and I couldn't get them over my butt) that it is time to get serious again. In 2005 I lost 40 lbs with a system called Healthy Inspirations, but I didn't feel I could continue with their "no starch after 3 o'clock" rule, so I stopped. Of course, I should have taken the good things I learned with me, but I didn't. I have gained 30 pounds back (16 in the last 6 months since my total abdominal hysterectomy). I am making a commitment to get serious. I don't expect miracles, but I hope to make some progress. Please pray for me. =) Melissa R.

I put on a shirt today that I had bought as an inspiration piece and it so completely fit. As I looked at myself in the mirror I saw the beginnings of a skinny person looking back at me.

Seems like it was only a couple of months ago that I was asking when would what I see in the mirror line up with with I see in the closet and on the scale.
