Health and Happiness

It has been over two years ago, that I began this wonderful Spark adventure. I have successfully lost sixty pounds and as of the beginning of September 2011, I have been in maintenance for one year. Today, I switched my tricker to a maintenance ticker. I can say this new me is real. The way I eat, the way I think, the way I exercise and the way I look, have all changed. I am delighted! I really love the transformation!

It has been over two years ago, that I began this wonderful Spark adventure. I have successfully lost sixty pounds and as of the beginning of September 2011, I have been in maintenance for one year. Today, I switched my tricker to a maintenance ticker. I can say this new me is real. The way I eat, the way I think, the way I exercise and the way I look, have all changed. I am delighted! I really love the transformation!

A journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step. I am stepping into my future each day as I build a foundation of health and joy with a commitment to physical activities and wonderful healthy food while making connections with new Spark Friends.

This is the next great adventure in my life. I want it to be the best it can be. Join me in a celebration of life as we transform ourselves with love and gratitude into exactly who we want to be.

Thank you for the comment on my blog. I haven't read that book. I'll see if my library has it. In any case, I'll be adding it to my "To Be Read" pile. ;) Thanks again!

Just wanted to stop by and say that I appreciated your comment on WATERMELLEN's Day Four Fatloser blog. Personally, I think that self-loathing is a pretty poor motivational tool overall, and most of us who are or were overweight already have an ample portion of that, often self-installed.

Still, to each his or her own, and if something works for someone else, who am I to criticize? (Even though I usually pitch in my two cents' worth anyway.)

Happy New Year, and thanks for your perceptive comments on my Day 4 Fastloser blog.

You're so right, there's no one method that works for everyone. And Steve Siebold is way too "in your face" for most people!
