The Possibilities are Endless!

Hello, my name is Amy. I've been Sparking since January 2014. It has been an incredible journey. While my weight loss has not exactly been what I had hoped, I learned a lot about myself; lessons I needed to learn before I could make any permanent changes to my body.

The first thing is that we am not alone. Anything I could experience has been experienced by someone on this site before. So, I might as well decide I am going to be accountable for my actions. No one is going to ...
Hello, my name is Amy. I've been Sparking since January 2014. It has been an incredible journey. While my weight loss has not exactly been what I had hoped, I learned a lot about myself; lessons I needed to learn before I could make any permanent changes to my body.

The first thing is that we am not alone. Anything I could experience has been experienced by someone on this site before. So, I might as well decide I am going to be accountable for my actions. No one is going to judge me for a diet slip and slide more negatively than I judge myself; actually, I have had such positive reinforcement that I am finally learning to forgive myself and let go of shame and doubt. I will have slips: I am still human. But I will come back from those slips a little wiser.

Also, no one can return to old habits and hope to maintain a weight loss. I know that sounds obvious, but having gained back the weight I lost + a few pounds really brought it home.

Another thing I had to face is that I stress eat. I don't even know I'm doing it. I think I am taking a few bites and BAM! the whole thing is gone. Not a big deal when it's a whole apple, but a very big deal when it's a whole large pizza! I also self sabotage. It's a very old habit. Putting that out there tp my Sparkteams has helped me to recognize when I am falling into that trap.

I encourage anyone trying to Spark to join several teams, make many friends, and take advantage of the support available. Because the most important thing I have learned in a year is this...One Spark can make you burn with the fire of possibilities!

Hi, Amy! I get most of the pictures for my blogs by searching Bing for "funny animal pictures on a roof" or whatever I'm looking for. I use Bing for the song lyrics, too. Save the pictures to your computer or tablet.

When you're making your blog, click "add picture" where you want the pix to be. One problem I have is that you can't see the pictures in the blog in progress. I have to post the blog, then edit it if I've put the wrong picture or used one twice.
