SPRING FORWARD!

Spring is here! Time to spring forward with momentum to get our "summer body"!

I love Spring...everything is green and all of the flowers are in bloom. The sun is out, it's feeling warmer, and it starts to invigorate me. My body's feeling energized and alive!

I'm doing well....steadily losing a little weight each week. I'm springing forward to a slimmer body. I'm taking time for myself and working on being healthier.

Enjoy the journey, and don't ...
Spring is here! Time to spring forward with momentum to get our "summer body"!

I love Spring...everything is green and all of the flowers are in bloom. The sun is out, it's feeling warmer, and it starts to invigorate me. My body's feeling energized and alive!

I'm doing well....steadily losing a little weight each week. I'm springing forward to a slimmer body. I'm taking time for myself and working on being healthier.

Enjoy the journey, and don't forget to take time to smell the flowers!!

I CAN DO THIS!

**I BELIEVE in making myself healthy!
**I BELIEVE that I can be successful at losing weight.
**I BELIEVE I can tailor my eating to have healthy choices and love the food choices.
**I BELIEVE that I can enjoy some exercise.
**I BELIEVE that I will be under 200 lbs by my son's wedding in October 2014.

Love yourself, spread some joy, and live a great life - BELIEVE that you can achieve anything you set your mind to do!

Happy New Year!

What I've learned:

1. Find foods you love that are healthy - they will feel like treats and leave you satisfied!

2. If you are craving a certain fattening food - have it! BUT only once in a while and split it with someone!! You'll still get the satisfaction from it, but with a lot less calories!

3. Treat yourself to something besides food for good behavior! It's not all about eating!



STAYING WITH THE PLAN.....

**I'm eating lots of low-fat, high fiber foods, while substituting as much as I can with whole grains

**I'm using the "Bikini Method" of filling my plate with half veggies, one fourth each of protein and carbs

**I'm logging my food

**I'm going to exercise daily

**I'm drinking at least 8 waters daily

**I'm going to bed earlier with my family and getting 7-8 hours sleep

**I WILL NOT eat out of control because of emotions (boredom is my usual problem)

**I WILL NOT eat fattening foods with someone out of guilt

**I WILL NOT blame others for excuses as to why I'm not losing weight...I'm choosing my behavior and it must change in order to lose

I can do this....I WILL DO THIS....I HAVE TO DO THIS!

"I have to take control of food and not let food take control of me!" - me!

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit." - Aristotle

"The difference between try and triumph is just a little UMPH!" - Marvin Phillips

"I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." - Thomas Edison

"All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." - Walt Disney

"Do or do not - there is no try." - Yoda

My Goals:
I'd like to lose my weight and keep it off, plus be able to get off of most of my medicines. I love Sparks....it keeps me on track and motivated!


My Program:
Low carb, low sugar, low fat diet. Making sure that I'm within range for carbs, fats, protein, fiber - so I get a balanced diet.

Personal Information:
SW: 272
Goal: 150

I'm 53, and have been married for 33 years. We have one son, 25 who has a BA in Communications - he works full-time for a PR & Marketing firm.

I love to travel, paint (water colors right now), swim in our pool, go to movies, read, knit/crochet, and have fun with family and friends! So much to do....so little time!!

Other Information:
I've been a stay-at-home mom doing volunteer work since my son was in school. Now that he's an adult, I have to find things to do that keep me active! I've been overweight most of my adult life due to health issues, and have yo-yo dieted without much success. Now I'm taking the time to do something for me! I'm here to get healthy, look better, and have some fun in life without a struggle!

emoticon Point Master, we need a challenge for the other teams to complete on Thursday.

What do you think about asking them to post a funny, but true motivational message? "The difference between Try and Triumph is a little umph." Or their best Dr. Seuss or Winnie the Pooh quote?
