Will Lose Four Bowling Balls

My name is Lou. As an avid bowler, I know how heavy those 16-pound bowling balls can be. Because of physical injuries my weight jumped and I now will lose the equivalent of four of these orbs.

Mental strength is necessary for physical strength.

Carpe Diem -- Seize the Day. It has been made for you and will never be repeated. Tomorrow begins a new one full of opportunities and challenges.

Be strong, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, physically.

Second by second, minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day anything can be overcome.

My Goals:
To motivate others to believe they CAN meet and exceed their goals with God's help and the support of Spark People.



My Program:
Start 9/16/2010 -- 290.4 pounds.

Goal #1 - First bowling ball - met
-- pounds. (-).

Goal #2 - Second bowling ball - met ___

Goal #3 - Third bowling ball - met ___

Goal #4 - Fourth bowling ball - met ___

It is easier to focus on losing one pound than 20 or 50 or 100. So aim for only a one pound loss, celebrate your success when you lose it, then shoot for one more pound until you reach your goal.

Hi, Lou! Thanks for the update on the SparkPage changes... I managed to miss a day because of them moving the spinner, so my over 300 day streak was broken, although I KNOW I checked in and just didn't spin the wheel because it was not noticed... oh well! LOL! I hit SP everyday whether the wheel is there or not... I'm consistent even if SP isn't! emoticon
Hope you are doing OK. I'm still bowling, but not as often. I'll be checking into the team more when the Fall league starts up again in September. I've had issues with my heels and RA.

Hi Lou,

Just stopped by to say "hi" and wish you well when you go to your appts. I see you are doing great in the spark trophy department: perfect attendance, consistency and fitness minutes (much better than I am). Keep up the good work and stay motivated. I think 2014 will be your year to "shine" and possibly another bowling ball will "bite the dust"

Blessings,
