Stopping by to sprinkle some more Sparkle Dust, hey it is better than snow. LOL December is one of the most difficult months of the year whether it has to do with staying on one’s food plan with all of the goodies that abound, dealing with Holiday gatherings, for some this time of the year proves to be lonely and it is harder to deal with at this time of year, and the general economic climate out there right now and dealing with buying presents for our children, family, or friends.
Please if any of the above or something else causes you to turn to food to self medicate please reach out to one of your Spark Buddies. We are only a click away on your computer and you do not have to face this alone. We are your Spark Family and we are here for you. We can all do this together. Make this Holiday Season one of your healthiest and happiest.
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, and confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. --Melody Beattie
I wish my entire fellow Sparkers a Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving. I am so thankful for each and every one of you. I am thankful to have you as part of my extended family as we say on our team. You have helped make me the person I am today. I am getting healthier and stronger everyday with your constant support and motivation.
My advice for the Holiday, choose your battles carefully. Tread carefully here my friends. The consequence of your choices will all be on you. You have worked too hard and you look too good to blow it now. You joined SparkPeople to overcome these urges or learn how to plan for them so you can indulge in a comfort food here or there. Don’t forget all of the hard work you have put in and all you have learned. You have come so far! Learn how to celebrate the day without the emphasis on food. If you should indulge in that dessert please make sure that you and your family, we want them healthy too, take a long walk after dinner to digest and burn off some of the calories from dinner. Hitting the couch after a big Thanksgiving meal is now a thing of the past. Yup, no more.
Happy Thanksgiving! If you are driving, travel safely!
Just dropping by to sprinkle some Sparkle Dust on your page. We are coming into what I call the "Eating Season" with the Holidays right around the corner starting with Halloween this weekend, a chocolate lover's worst nightmare. Thanksgiving is not far behind with all of those Holiday parties already being scheduled and looming over our heads.
Spark People could not be a more effective tool to help combat this. We are all just a shout out away if you need some support. We will all do this together.
