I acknowledge that since my diagnosis of Still's disease in 2004, and the resulting onslaught of medications too many to even think about, I have not been winning as often. The resulting depression is yet another obstacle to be dealt with.
My way of dealing with all of this NOW is to take control, do all I can to get as healthy as I can and have a good life. As ...

OK, I have purchased the book, am reading all of my tips and tools. Just do it, Toni.

To get/stay as healthy as I can be. To move more and stay flexible (mentally and physically)

My Program:
I have purchased and am reading The SPARK; reaching out to others paddling in this same boat. I take advantage of the website and am tracking meals, water, steps. This is helping me increase water and steps, and decrease food intake that does nothing positive for me.

My name is Toni and I live in Pleasant Hill, CA. I am a native of SF. I have a daughter and mom who still live there. I am an avid reader, learning to play bridge. I love my little dog and am walking her longer now.

Other Information:
Success comes in cans. Yes, I can!
I am adding another rung to my ladder of life.
Don't look down on anyone unless you are helping thm up.
No act of kindness, no matter how small is ever wasted.

Even though I've been on SP for over a year, I haven't met my goal. Although it could be depressing at times, I always remember that I've lost some weight and kept it off. I also have to remember that I didn't gain this weight in a year so it's okay to take more than a year to get rid of it. emoticon

You said that you need some support. Remember that you're not alone. We're not on a diet, we're trying to change our life style to being healthier. You CAN do this!!!

This morning I wake and I thank You.
For the gift of seeing a new day begin,
and the energy I'll need, to make it through today.

When the day is over and nighttime comes,
I will thank You.
For the gift of knowing a day has been well-spent
and for the tranquility that comes with a darkened sky.
Morning to night, a precious cycle.
I am each day, grateful emoticon
