Be crazy.Be stupid.Be silly.Be weird.Be whatever.Because life's too short to be anything but happy.

I have reached an age (62) where I decided that I have to stop trying to please everyone in the world...and instead please myself. Rather than worry that I don't look a certain way, I should begin to appreciate the way I look right now and the person I am right now!

My new mantra (above) really reflects how I intend to live my life from this day forward - being the goofy, silly, fun-loving, ... OK, I'll say it myself ... weird, crazy nut that I was always meant to be!

emoticon sometimes we all reach a weight loss plateau. What are we to do when that happens?

DO focus on fruits and vegetables. Most American's don't come close to eating the recommended minimum of five servings per day, but vegetables and fruits of all kinds and colors should take center stage in a heart-healthy diet. They're rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that promote a healthy heart and body, plus they're filling and low in calories, which can promote weight management. Fresh, frozen, dried, canned (without sugar/syrups or added salt), raw, cooked—all fruits and vegetables are good for you.

Try filling your plate 3/4 of the way full with healthy veggies. Make sure they are baked, roasted or steamed. This way you will be getting the most health benefits they have to offer. Such as fiber, antioxidants and vitamins.

Double check what you are drinking. Some of us don't realize those delicious lattes and iced coffees are loaded with calories. Check out SP's Chef's Megs recipes for lo-fat & lo-cal coffess. They are so delicious.

And last but not least, try revamping your exercise routine. That's right, sometimes that is all it takes. Revamping your exercise routine by adding a couple of new exercises or switching up a couple of things.

Remember, a plateau is just temporary and you can restart your weight loss! emoticon

Finally it's Summer! We've all been waiting for it. Some fun in the Sun....but, what are we to do if the cold is still hanging around?

It doesn't mean that we should jump off the wagon, stop exercising and start eating whatever we want. A healthy, calorie-moderated diet and regular physical activity are essential for physical and mental health. We can still practice self-acceptance while continuing to work toward our goals.

We can exercise in the house, use Spark People's exercise video's, dance our way to fitness and so much more. Just don't give up and let the blues slide in and up set your balance.

I have faith in you. emoticon Let's get creative!

Did you know working out comes in many forms, and not all of them will leave you breathless and drenched in sweat? “Exercise doesn’t have to be spending an hour at the gym. Just get moving,” even if it's just for 10 minutes a day. “Take a dance class, go for a hike, walk the dog, or vacuum your house. It all counts!” So, yes, those late-night solo dance parties where you pretend you’re Beyoncé or Rita Hayworth are well worth it. Just get your body moving. Before you know it, you will have started a work out routine!
