My name is Becky and this is my Westie partner Buddy. So here I am again ... starting over for the last time!

I was once a member of Spark People for over 3 years AKA REBECKY44. I had been a Team Leader for several great Spark Teams. I once was voted a Motivator which was such an honor, but most importantly I made tons of Spark Friends.

When I reached my 3 year Spark Anniversary I found myself discouraged and depressed because I still had not lost any of this weight. So in my despair I began looking elsewhere for something to snap me out of it!

In my darkest hour I made a terrible mistake... I discontinued Spark People!! (SIGH) Yes, I removed my account!! Word of advice... don't EVER do that, because sooner or later you will want to come back to this wonderful place that offers you every tool that you will ever need to reach your goals, and those friends who loved and supported you. When you do come back ... you have to start ALL over again!

I made some positive changes since being away; one is called "Accountability" and the other is realizing that this is where I needed to be!

Starting over and seeing where this new path will lead me, and hoping I can motivate others again while keeping myself motivated!

    Howdy Becky! If we can’t do 1 sit-up, why set a goal to do 100 sit ups by the end of the week? Although we may have the desire to set miraculous goals, temper them with reality and tone the goals down into achievable goals…then we will reap a feeling of success instead of failure and frustration. Another new day is here! You're doing great! Keep up the hard work and sacrifices!

    It's super Saturday, Becky! If you've ever been late for work. Late for a date. Felt too old to change. Missed the boat/train. Fell off the wagon. Took a sabbatical. Derailed while on vacation. Bad stuff happened in life. It’s okay to be late. All LATE stands for is:


    Then get back on track. There’s years worth of empty days ahead to fill will good positive choices!

    Super Friday! Those negative thoughts we get, the negative comments or negative posts some people leave on our page or feed are like gangrene…cut them out! You’re already beautiful! SparkPeople is where we came to get help in becoming healthy. We cry with each other over the disappointments, sorrows and pain we experience. We laugh and cheer with each other over the successes, accomplishments and rewards as they occur. We can empower ourselves and each other every single day with a kind word or gesture! Feel empowered!!! (Reggie’s Philosophy)

    Good morning! Are you tired of watching what you eat, finding time to exercise, trying to do things up differently to stay interested and engaged? It’s at those moments when we’re wondering if it’s all worth it we need to dig deep into our inner person, the one so far deep, deep inside and find the will to continue. Staying on track takes effort and time, but it can be done!! Let’s get to it!! (Reggie’s Philosophy)

    Hi! Motivation starts with a thought...if we're positive we will succeed, then we will succeed...if we're positive we will fail, then we will fail. Let's think positive thoughts of success! Together we will succeed!!!!
