GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR JOURNEY TO A HEALTHY LIFE.




June of 2006 I was bedridden and my doctor gave me a month to live and told me to get my affairs in order and did not think he would see me again. He made an appointment for me for July and he almost passed out when he saw me walk into his office without assistance. I made up my mind that I was not ready to let go of life just yet so I started to take care of myself and eat properly and exercise and get well. I gave up smoking after a 30 year two pack a day habit and stopped abusing alcohol after twenty years . I made up my mind to get healthy so I could see my grand children grow up and prosper.

I have made great improvments in my health and in my life. I enjoy each day and live each day to the max.
I am very healthy now and just finished this years (June2013) physical and lab tests, every test came back normal and the Doctor said I was a picture of health. I am at my goal weight, the Doctor was very happy with my progress.
I have been smoke free since March 20, 2005, I have been sober since June 8, 2006. I love my new life.
I have made many friends here on the Spark site and I enjoy each and everyone I meet, I never in my wildest dreams thought I could get this far in such a short time. I am very thankful for everyones support in my efforts to improve my health and my life.
Thank you to all my friends now and in the future and a special thank you to SparkPeople.com for making it possible for people to live a healthy lifestyle.

MOTIVATION IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS. THIS HELPS ME WHEN I NEED THAT LITTLE PUSH TO KEEP GOING.

M- MAKE SHORT TERM GOALS
O- OUT WITH THE NEGATIVE THOUGHTS

A- ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR SUCCESSES

I- INVESTIGATE NEW WAYS TO GET FIT
O- OBSERVE YOUR HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
N- NEVER GIVE UP


No matter what level you're at on your journey to get healthier, remember that because of your efforts, you truly shine! So get the SPARK in you and SHINE!

We may hear it said a million times, in a thousand different ways; but tell those you love, you love them emoticon , now, while you have them, how very much they mean to you! Stop saying someday and just do it emoticon emoticon emoticon ! Enjoy the little things, because when they are gone, they are the big things; and what seemed so huge, is much, much smaller in time! And at least once a day, stop, take a deep breath, watch a child play emoticon or a squirrel scamper emoticon or smell a rose emoticon or take in a sunset emoticon .

And most important of all, tell yourself, I love you! Life can change in an instant and once a moment is gone it is gone, so endeavor to not waste a single one.

So, my friend, you matter to me. I wish you peace emoticon and love emoticon and joy and many, many moments watching sunsets!

I read your spark page, and looked at all your beautiful pictures. You have a lovely home. What amazes me, though, is the change in your appearance. Your face glows; you look about 20 years younger than you did when you started. That's amazing.
