Ready to be Healthy

Hi fellow Spark People! I'm 35 and live in Florida with my husband and our 5 children. 4 girls ages 13, 11, 8 and 4.5 (I HAVE to include the half) and our son who just turned 2.

I have been overweight for most of my life and every weight loss attempt has brought rapid results that were never sustainable because I focused on a weight total rather than embracing a change of life.

Hi fellow Spark People! I'm 35 and live in Florida with my husband and our 5 children. 4 girls ages 13, 11, 8 and 4.5 (I HAVE to include the half) and our son who just turned 2.

I have been overweight for most of my life and every weight loss attempt has brought rapid results that were never sustainable because I focused on a weight total rather than embracing a change of life.

Over the past 2 years I have had some medical problems that have yet to be resolved 2 surgeries later. While these issues are not weight related, it has really made me think about the impact my weight has on my overall health. I don't want to spend the rest of my life living or dealing with a medical condition.

My father had his first heart attack when he was 38 and had quadruple bypass at 40. As a kid that scared me to death and I do not want my kids to have to go through the same thing.

emoticon . Motivational Message:

The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That's the day we truly grow up.- John Maxwell, author and public speaker

So often we sit around and blame everyone else for all our problems, our mistakes and our weight. This journey of health and wellness that we are taking requires us to take responsibility for our lives. What ever has happened in the past belongs there. All those negative thoughts and emotions will only hold you back. Think not about the blames, but how each and every event in your life is going to make you stronger.

We cannot avoid bad situations only how we handle them. Each day you live brings you opportunities - how are you handling your daily opportunities?

Have a FanTABulous week!

Hi there, hopefully you are having a great weekend!

Weekend Motivational Message:

When you fight something, you’re tied to it forever. As long as you’re fighting it, you’re giving it power.-- Anthony de Mello

What are you fighting? Resistance always brings pain. Examine your struggle. What does your personality want from the situation? What does your soul want? What can you learn from this?

Always strive to mend separation and achieve unity. Always choose LOVE over fear. If you can embrace whatever you are struggling against, the struggle will disappear.

You are STRONG! This Journey you are taking is about YOU learning about your strengths. Focus on that and forgive yourself for your weaknesses.

Health, Strength, & Happiness
Anastasia
