Thanks for all the supportive comments & goodies.

Step by step, I'm learning to manage my life. It may be slow but it IS happening. I appreciate all the encouraging words on my page, photos & blogs. Spark friends are great!

Lastly I have relearned that: 'the SECOND bite tastes the same' (thanks Pamela from WA) It's really working.

I joined SparkPages in 2007 & was honored to became a Spark's Motivational Member on 8-5-10. Thanks to all my Sparkling friends who helped make that happen. Wow! I'm overwhelmed by all the support & appreciation. Thanks! I'm so "DONE" being fat! (((( Sending SKINNY Vibes! ))))

Thanks for the goodies & comments for my being the Motivator of the Day on 5-18-11. What a pleasant surprise, Motivator of the Day again on 9-18-2011!

Sending good thoughts & prayers to all my Sparkling friends. Injoy:) Carolyn

Don't forget that the scale doesn't always tell the whole story. Have you measured yourself lately??? You may just be amazed at what you discover!

Hello fellow Sparkies! Hope you can keep your flame burning high to reach your designated goals.

Remember when all else fails, persistence prevails!

I am claiming my DONE girl, Warrior DIVA with style.

I accept that I can take the time I need & I can DO IT RIGHT! Focus on HEALTH! Take time to be patient, kind & gentle with my progress.

This is a gentle reminder to put myself in the driver seat!

I can keep an attitude of gratitude daily! I write things for which I'm grateful & store them in my 'gratitude' jar. Pictures will arrive soon.

Member Since: 12/28/2009

SparkPoints: 18,541

Fitness Minutes: 1,508

My Goals:
Keep what works, eliminate what doesn't!

Goals:
get off couch with rocking to do it,
get into truck without shortness of breath,
not worrying about chairs with arms & whether I'll fit or being sturdy enough to hold my weight, walking without canes or rolling walker & without gasping for breath,
liking my reflection in the mirror or images in photographs, feeling good wearing clothes that fit comfortably.

Working on measureable successful 'stretches' of behavior not numbers right now.

My Program:
Moderation in all things. Use Spark Nutritional & Exercise logging tools. Drink plenty of H20 daily, take daily prescriptions & vitamins, stretch when I wake up & before & after exercise, apply lotion to my skin regularly. Ride my exercycle at least three times a week.

Give myself small non food rewards for following through on weekly commitment.

Treat myself lovingly & be mindful in all my actions. - DONE!

Personal Information:
Learning to love myself as I proceed on this journey toward my new ending in AZ.

I'm counting the steps I've made, not the steps I've missed.

I am learning to increase my SPARK & help ignite other Spark friends.

Other Information:
Today is the day the Lord has made, rejoice & be glad in it.

Nice to know I have such a positive spark friend.
Hope all goes well with your back.
Back pain is the worst! It just seems that everything in your body is connected to your back. Every little move causes discomfort or pain.
Oh, and thanks for the spark goodie. It was very well timed.

Not tomorrow - today.
Let it be a small beginning - a tiny beginning.
Your happiness depends on starting today - every day."
