Thank you for your comments on my "Standards Blog." This seems to be a topic at every family event. I've been seeing my family more than usual in preparation for Thanksgiving and this always seems to come up. My family just doesn't understand my position in all of this. There perspective is its better to be a couple regardless of the compromises necessary. My perspective is I'd rather be single than in an unhappy or dishonest relationship. I don't expect them to change at this stage of the game but it is really getting old. Thank you again for your support. ~Melanie
Thank you for visiting my Sparkpage. I added you as a Sparkfriend as well. That means that you can click on "community" and click on "friend feed" and see what your friends are doing on Spark.
Whether you have 10 pounds to lose of 100, this is the best website to reach your goals and not only lose weight but, find a new way to live life to the fullest.
I started by logging my food on the nutrition tracker, eating healthy foods and drinking 8 glasses of water a day. Just doing that helped me shed the first 25 pounds. It also helped my body to crave sugar less and leveled out my mood. As I started accomplishing my goals, my self-esteem grew and I wasn't depressed anymore.
I am sooo happy with what I have accomplished so far. I know that if I stick with this, I will reach my goal. My thinking has changed. I know this is a lifestyle and not a "diet". I am willing to make these changes for the rest of my life.
My worst day now is 100 times better than my best day before. You deserve to be happy and healthy. Take it one day at a time and think "healthy" thoughts. It is really just about making healthy choices and doing it long enough that it becomes a habit.
Best wishes to you on your journey. WE ARE GONNA DO THIS...WOOHOO!!! + + = 1994 days ago
