Hi! It's Aprill 2011, and I guess I should update. I wrote the intro above almost 5 years ago--- hard to believe. Spark people has been with me on my journey all this time! It's been a long haul, but the inspiration and motivation from all you wonderful Spark people has helped me to lose over 70 pounds. I will stay with Spark to help me continue to live my healthy lifestyle. I have read so many inspirational blogs, and I have been helped so much by hearing of other peoples experiences in the path we are all traveling to live a healthy life. I've been helped every day in so many ways by Sparkpeople and I just want to send out thanks for the difference you have made in my life.

Wow! Time flies! It's January 2013 and I've managed to maintain my weight loss. I still check Spark People daily for inspiration. I'm so grateful for the Spark inspiration!

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now. Chinese Proverb

Whatever "tree" you're planting right now, may the roots run deep!
Hope to see you over on The Healthy Lunch Club!!

"One of the most difficult parts of changing how you live and how you eat is believing that change is possible.
We all say we believe that, but many of us, deep down in our hearts believe that it's possible for other people, but not for us.
That other people can do it, that the glowy warm life we imagine is for other people, not for us.
We have an unconscious belief that we can't do it, it's hopeless, and so, on some level, we stop making an effort.
We lapse into the way it always was or is. But change really is possible.
And it really does take a fierce kind of longing, and a fierce kind of love for yourself.
For the life you know is possible. Ask yourself what you love most of all.
Do you love your life? And are you willing to take action on your own behalf?"
-Geneen Roth

TGIF, Sparkfriend! I hope your week was a good one and that you're ready for a fit, fun and fantastically healthy weekend! Keep your goals in mind and keep taking steps towards them. Remind yourself that you are capable...and love yourself enough to know that you are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

“In terms of days and moments lived, you’ll never again be as young as you are right now, so spend this day, the youth of your future, in a way that deflects regret. Invest in yourself. Have some fun. Do something important. Love somebody extra. In one sense, you’re just a kid, but a kid with enough years on her to know that every day is priceless."
-Victoria Moran

"I believe that we are who we choose to be.
Nobody's going to come and save you. You've got to save yourself.
Nobody's going to give you anything. You've got to go out and fight for it.
Nobody knows what you want except for you.
And nobody will be as sorry as you if you don't get it.
So don't give up on your dreams."
-Unknown

Hugs,
Pixie

"Transformation is not five minutes from now; it's a present activity. In this moment you can make a different choice, and it's these small choices and successes that build up over time to help cultivate a healthy self-image and self esteem."

"Make a pledge to yourself right now, to declare that you are worth your time and energy."

Just stopping by to wish you a happy, healthy and fun Summer, Sparkfriend! Keep making those daily choices that will help you move closer to your goal, one step at a time. Right now there are just a little over 90 days until the first day of Autumn. Imagine how much progress you can make by then if you just keep doing your best each day this Summer! Don't forget....you are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie
