Working back to my former Goddess Self

I am a 38 year old mother of 4. I am tired of being afraid of getting my picture taken because I let myself keep this weight on.

I was diagnosed with and treated for thyroid cancer back in 1999. It is time to take action and get my butt in gear.

I want to stop making excuses on why I am overweight.

I want to take responsibility for my decisions on what I eat and whether I exercise daily.

I can and will lose weight and keep it off. ...

emoticon Hello again, I'm back to see how you are doing and to let you know I'm thinking of you.

Here's my tip for today:
You can't be happy all of the time; but you can focus your thoughts on happy things such as family, friends, job, hobbies, or whatever you find important.

Sparkpeople has a great selection of positive articles and comments, here's one of my favorites: http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/quotes

I hope you have a really great week!

Hi, it's been a while since I've stopped by your page to check on you so I thought I'd take a quick moment; how are things going for you?

I read somewhere that one lady stacked empty butter cartons on top of each other as she lost the weight so that she could see what it looked like. Now I picture every pound of my excess weight as a brick of butter; which is also pure fat. So any weight I lose, I mentally stack in the corner of my mind to remind me what it looks like.

Hey... Keep reminding yourself how hard you worked and that you deserve to lose for your efforts; and by all means, keep on keeping on!

emoticon Hi !
How's things going for you today?
I'm excited and eager to lose weight to get fit.
I'm so glad to be motivated again, it took a long time, but finally I'm inspired. Some people just want to get sexy; not me...I just want to get healthy.

Keep on keeping on!

Whatever your personal goals are and whatever you do today...do it for YOU! Your worth it!

Hi again!

I must apologize for neglecting you these last few months...I've been really slack this summer and now into fall...oh I've been mindful of my food intake...but I have to admit that I haven't been restricting myself the way I should have been. Now to pay the piper! Oy! But I must say that the time has passed quickly and I now find it too cold to do too much outside (I'm a wimp) so I should have more time for sparkpeople.

I seen this tip recently in some publication and thought it noteworthy to share and try:

Add this to your rice and curb your appetite all day long...

Shrink your appetite, your calorie intake, and your pants size with just one little addition to your rice: vegetables.

In a recent study of normal-weight people, mixing vegetables into a plain rice dish at lunch helped people feel fuller for the rest of the day. So much so that they ate way fewer calories at dinner than the folks who had their rice straight up.

Have a super wonderful week!
