Today you have the choice to be amazing. Today you can do more than just try. You can succeed. You can be victorious. Today, you can rock your world. You can look yourself in the eye and smile... because you know that you are fighting for an amazing cause: YOU. And YOU are absolutely worth fighting for.
You can also do the same thing tomorrow.

In honour of the upcoming Summer Olympic Games this Saturday in London, I give to you the Olympic Creed which is as true for the games as it is for achieving our own goals and dreams each and every day:
"The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well."
Today, you are a superhero, a survivor, a warrior, and a beacon to others for honouring yourself, your mind and your body; for making the choices that will make you an even better person tomorrow.
Today you are one step closer, because you decided to be. Fight strong, fight well, fight fair.

Hey Sandy-Toes!! Great to have a friend in this ... 130 lbs. (and less) here we come!
And, about my name .... "Oh, soooo Svelte!"
It was just one of those goofy sayings my high school girl friends and I used to say to one another and laugh about. It brought to mind sleek sophistication, beauty, control ... and became something I would dream about being.
Now, I'm just determined to make that dream come true!
Tell me about Osho .... I'm trying to become a better reader too. Just last night I made a list of all the classics I still need to tackle!
Thanks for the friend add. I added you too. Yes, we are pretty much at the same level. I was 178.5 pounds on 1/18/11. I just discovred Spark about a month ago. I am glad I did. So let's work on getting to 125-130 together.
I have to ask... your user-name, is it inspired by Osho? I have read a lot of his books, I was wondering about that.
OK - Are your ready to reach our goal? Here we go!
Thanks for stopping by my 5% blog! I'm working on it, sweetie, I'm working on it! Although, two goals have already been reached: I'm no longer Obese, and I'm wearing one of my pretty summer dresses as I type!! Just need to drop a few more pounds, but so far, 2 of 3
