"Be The Change You Want To See" Gandi

I discovered Sparkpeople in February, 2008. I think it is a great website with wonderful helps for people losing weight and developing healthy lifestyles. I was impressed with the creator's purpose for the website of giving back and helping others!

My goal is to lose 80 pounds and overcome emotional, binge type eating behaviors. I have developed these unhealthy behaviors over a lifetime but now its time to turn them around.

I discovered Sparkpeople in February, 2008. I think it is a great website with wonderful helps for people losing weight and developing healthy lifestyles. I was impressed with the creator's purpose for the website of giving back and helping others!

My goal is to lose 80 pounds and overcome emotional, binge type eating behaviors. I have developed these unhealthy behaviors over a lifetime but now its time to turn them around.

I'm excited to be on this journey with a group of like minded people; so thank you all for any encouragement and help you can give me a long the way! And hopefully I will be able to encourage you as well! I very excited today because I just earned an trophy. It is 6/17/10....I want to see how quickly I can earn the next trophy. It will take around 2500 points. So that will take some time and growth (hopefully)....and most definitely some weight loss. After being here for 2 years, I'm finally getting involved and eating more wisely. Learning to practice restraint and less late night eating and binging. So I'm feeling very positive about my life.

Yesterday for awhile I was really not happy with myself feeling as if I can't or don't ever achieve any goals Then I was reminded that is not true....I CAN! So my attitude changed to one of strength instead of defeat. Then today I learned I need to set some specific, measurable goals! And I see that I'm writing a blog instead of an introduction text. So I will start that now, a blog.

"I can do all things through Christ who strenthens me." Phil. 4:13
"Greater is He who is in me than he that is in the world."
Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might!
Faith without works is dead...

Let's encourage one another; together we can achieve our goals!

Thank you so much Merry Jo for your lovely note on my page! I hope you are having a good week. I am still deep in meetings in Ethiopia (but able to eat healthy food here, which is good!), and looking forward to a couple of days sightseeing early next week before I fly back to Paris.

Thank you for coming by my Spark Page and commenting on my weight loss. Losing 200 pounds was much easier on my mental health than gaining 200 pounds ever was. I appreciate your kind comment and have added you as a Spark Friend. emoticon

Whatever you focus on is what you get – negative or positive – so why not focus on the positive?” Marion Licchiello
