Maintaining 80 Pound Loss with SP & Relentless Determination!

I'm 80+ lbs below my all time high and I've lost over 50 pounds since Dec. 2008. In 2009 I achieved a healthy BMI 25. Then with SparkPeople I was able to achieve BMI 21, a weight I always wanted!

I've gained this weight back many times. But now with SP I've learned the relentless determination it takes for long term success! -Marsha

Wisdom is knowing what to do next, skill is knowing how to do it,
and virtue is doing it.

Blessed are those who can

give without remembering

and take without forgetting.


I had to think about this one for a couple moments and then realized this is very profound and revela the secret of what makes a great person.

May your Monday be as Marvelous as you are!!

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares. ~Henri Nouwen

Thank you for being a caring friend who is there when I need it.

Wishing you a Serene Sunday.

Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect.
There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions.
So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger,
more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.
~Mark Victor Hansen~

Hope you have an awesome weekend.

Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors,
and let each new year find you a better man.
~Benjamin Franklin

Striving to improve on a daily basis will help us to reach the goal we are aiming for. Are you working to reach your goal(s) each and every day??
