Welcome to my Spark Page . I t's time to roll up my sleeves and get my butt in gear. No more excuses. I've been waiting for the weight fairy to sprinkle some shrinking dust on me. It's not go to happen. I am responsible for the decisions that I make. Just keeping my calories in range is not enough. As much as I hate to exercise it has to become my best friend.

Renee,

I hope you have the time to watch the video I posted in my blog.
It may make a difference on what is going on in your body.
The info about cancers is eye opening, along with everything else he talks about.

Let me know what you think if you get the chance.

Hi.

One of my teammates posted this and it is so funny I wanted to share it with some folks that may not have had a chance to read it.

Here are some weight comparisons...What equivalent have you shed and what will you be shedding?

1 pound = a Guinea Pig
1.5 pounds = a dozen Krispy Kreme glazed donuts
2 pounds = a rack of baby back ribs
3 pounds = an average human brain
4 pounds = an ostrich egg
5 pounds = a Chihuahua
6 pounds = a human’s skin
7.5 pounds = an average newborn
8 pounds = a human head
10 pounds= chemical additives an American consumes each year
11 pounds = an average housecat
12 pounds = a Bald Eagle
15 pounds = 10 dozen large eggs
16 pounds = a sperm whale’s brain
20 pounds = an automobile tire
23 pounds = amount of pizza an average American eats in a year
24 pounds = a 3-gallon tub of super premium ice cream
25 pounds = an average 2 year old
30 pounds = amount of cheese an average American eats in a year
33 pounds = a cinder block
36 pounds = a mid-size microwave
40 pounds = a 5-gallon bottle of water or an average human leg
44 pounds = an elephant’s heart
50 pounds = a small bale of hay
55 pounds = a 5000 BTU air conditioner
60 pounds = an elephant’s penis (yep, weights more than his heart!)
66 pounds = fats and oils an average American eats in a year
70 pounds = an Irish Setter
77 pounds = a gold brick
80 pounds = the World’s Largest Ball of Tape
90 pounds = a newborn calf
100 pounds = a 2 month old horse
111 pounds = red meat an average American eats in a year
117 pounds = an average fashion model (and she’s 5’11”)
118 pounds = the complete Encyclopedia Britannica
120 pounds = amount of trash you throw away in a month
130 pounds = a newborn giraffe
138 pounds = potatoes an average American eats in a year
140 pounds = refined sugar an average American eats in a year
144 pounds = an average adult woman (and she’s 5’4”)

Hugs,

I don't think it is so much a matter of will power. I have a strong will in all other areas of my life so it seems to be more about stopping and thinking about my emotions before I turn to food. I have a chemical reaction that happens in my brain when I am upset or nervous and the feeling I get in the moment that I am consuming sugary treats, pacifies that emotion for a short while and provides relief.

But, when I am abstaining from the sugar and simple carbs, and eating more vegetables and drinking water, I seem to be able to think more clearly and when I get stressed I can stop and take a moment before reaching for the sweets. It is in that moment that I can talk to myself before I act out and binge.

I think you have strong willpower. You just have to give yourself a chance to find your moment of clarity before you react. If you can have that moment to acknowledge that the junk food will not satisfy you and in the end, will not solve the problem, you can find something else to occupy your mind until the craving passes.

Thanks for remind me of this. Have a wonderful week and keep Sparkin'...it works!

Hugs to you Sparkfriend!
