Hi!! I wanted to welcome you to the Alabama SP Team!! We are glad you have joined us! Now is a great time to start living a healthier lifestyle and SparkPeople can help you do that. My mom will 70 in August and she is also a Sparker---though more for fitness than for weight loss...but she is eating better and moving more. And that is what it takes!! I hope when you get a chance you will stop by the team page. We are alot of fun!! Good Luck and I know YOU CAN DO IT!! Pam
Found this poem this morning while searching for some motivation, hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
Anything is Possible By Unknown
If there was ever a time to dare, to make a difference, to embark on something worth doing, IT IS NOW. Not for any grand cause, necessarily... but for something that tugs at your heart, something that's your inspiration, something that's your dream. You owe it to yourself to make your days here count. HAVE FUN. DIG DEEP. STRETCH. DREAM BIG.
Know, though, that things worth doing seldom come easy. There will be good days. And there will be bad days. There will be times when you want to turn around, pack it up, and call it quits. Those times tell you that you are pushing yourself, that you are not afraid to learn by trying.
PERSIST. Because with an idea, determination, and the right tools, you can do great things. Let your instincts, your intellect, and your heart, guide you.
TRUST. Believe in the incredible power of the human mind. Of doing something that makes a difference. Of working hard. Of laughing and hoping. Of lazy afternoons. Of lasting friends. Of all the things that will cross your path this year. The start of something new brings the hope of something great, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.
