Lessons Learned in Six SP Years

On 1/27/2008, I joined the Spark family and now 3 years later, I am still here and as active as ever. So what have I learned? Here is the short list:

* Before snacking, H.A.L.T. - Am I Hurting? Angry? Lonely? Tired/Thirsty?
* By sharing what I have learned, I help myself, as well as, others
* It is not selfish to take time for me
* Exercise can be fun (did I really say that?!?!?!? LOL)
* Being proactive and planning ahead is one secret to success

* Being proactive and planning ahead is one secret to success
* Seeking help/support is not a weakness but a sign of maturity
* Sometimes the best thing I can do for myself is to say NO
* Each day needs to have some quiet time built in
* Do not dwell on mistakes, but learn from them and move on
* Setbacks are NOT a excuse to give up, but a reason to begin anew
* It is important to stay connected with my SPals and SP teams

The scale went down. I must be doing something right! Thank you for support. I just want to keep going. I have been here so many times and as you know I just gain it back. Not this time? I really need to continue letting go of unhealthy and too much food. I want to be ready to go below 220. Have a strong day staying on track , sandy

Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my "bargaining" blog. I was going to tell you I appreciate it when I come to your page and read the things you have learned while being in SP. Your Halt acronym is excellent as well as the other things. I had a hard time thinking to take time for myself by being here on SP was not selfish. Thank you for being such a wonderful you, so supportive.
Love, Charlene
