I thought I'd give an update on what I'm up to. Well, a buddy and I joined Weight Watcher's in November! Yes, just last month but seriously I'd gained weight since my mom's death in September. So, I needed to get serious and not let things get out of control. So here's four things I thought would be important on my Losing List:

1. Change my relationship to food and obtain better emotional health.

4. Be frolic in the country LOL

Thanks for dropping by my SPARK Page; visit any time. A little about myself. I've been a member of SPARKS for quite a while now and have really been encouraged by my fellow SPARKERS and their weight loss journeys. SPARK members have been a gr8 help and benefit to me and I hope I've been an encouragement too. I have developed many wonderful friendships through SPARKS. I'm married with 3 wonderful grown children and no grandkids yet. I'm a Christian believer and attend church where we get encouragement to keep following Christ. My husband and I have three pets - cat, dog and a water turtle. I guess I can't count the hummingbirds and other wilds birds we feed.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting.

For Christmas

May you have joy
in the mad rush
of preparation;

May you know peace
in the tiny margins
of time around
the busy days;

May you have star-shine
in clear night skies
for looking at;

May you have silence
now and then;

and, above all –

beyond all else –

May you have love
to give
and to receive.

(Elizabeth Searle Lamb)

Merry Christmas!

Recipe for a Merry Christmas

To a cup of tradition, time-honored and dear,
Add a generous portion of holiday cheer,
Combine with the memories of Christmases past,
Then sprinkle the mixture with joy unsurpassed.
Add a dash of good spirits, stir fondly until
You set it to rise in the warmth of good will.
Pour love over all in generous measure,
And garnish with laughter and heartwarming pleasure.

~ Barbara Burrow ~

This Holiday Season, give yourself the gift of self-motivation:

1. Review your reasons for wanting to be healthier.

2. Think about how you felt when you began your new healthy lifestyle. You remember . . . tired, low energy, lots of aches and pains, miserable, embarrassed, etc. and pay close attention to the smallest changes in your body. Think about how far you’ve come so far.

3. Challenge yourself . . . the try some new, healthy food options; a new form of exercise; walk farther; run faster; whatever. Just make sure the challenge you set is realistic for you.

4. Set up reminders to keep yourself on track – they can be sticky notes taped to your computer monitor, automatic text messages/emails you send yourself, or anything else that will keep your goals front and center in your mind.

5. Surround yourself with others who are positive and motivated.

6. Read success stories or watch them on video.

7. Learn as much as you can about healthy lifestyles. In this case, education CAN be free! There is a ton of good info on this site or in your local library. Knowledge is POWER!

8. Just Get Moving! Once you start, you’ll want to keep going.

9. Keep a record of your progress. Seeing concrete evidence of your improvement will motivate you to do even more/better.

10. Help others when you can.

Keep going!

You are SPARKTACULAR!

You have it in you

When you feel like quitting, that’s an opportunity to keep going. When you feel like giving up, you have it in you to step forward with renewed energy and to give more.

Giving up doesn’t accomplish anything, and it doesn’t make you feel any better. It just leaves you with disappointment and regret.

There’s a way to keep going, and you know it. There’s a way to keep going, and just imagine how great you will feel for choosing persistence.

If you’re weary, stop for a short while to rest, but don’t give up. Remind yourself of all the good reasons why you’ve chosen to move forward, and then get yourself going again.

If you wish to be free of the effort, then do what it takes to finish the effort. Make all your work count for something by bringing it to a successful conclusion.

The next step is right in front of you, and you have it in you to take that step. Keep going, fulfill your best possibilities, and you’ll always be thankful for your choice to do so.

— Ralph Marston
