07/06/2016 - I seem to take long hiatuses from SparkPeople, only to find myself back again to reignite. Here I am again, in this supportive community, looking to find a spark to help improve my overall health! Cheers to all, and let's do this thing!
06/07/2015 - I am back on Spark to try a different approach. I guess returning is not different, but the way I intend to live it is different. I read what I wrote below, I think it was April of 2014, and I realize that I still embrace that philosophy. My goal today is to realize I have the ability to make the changes! I can, and I will make the changes necessary to be the best me I can be!
April 2014 - Embrace the positive, ditch the negative. It's all in the attitude. The one thing in life we have the power to change is our attitude. I have a choice! Do I want to live my days with a bad attitude? Heck No! I want to live with joy in my heart - even when the situation is not particularly joyous.
The bad attitude that I allowed to take over my mind has interfered with my life on so many levels. Now I am thinking positively, and with that energy, I will be able to accomplish so much. Weight loss will be a part of those accomplishments, but more importantly, I will find peace within.
Eat mindfully - food will not fill any emotional void, but will overflow my jeans!
Move often - my body has gotten stiff with non-use. Give it time, be gentle, and soon you will see its strength.
Live with gratitude - I have been blessed with a beautiful family and great health. Sometimes these gifts go unnoticed and unappreciated, I must remember to give thanks often!
