AFFIRMATION: "I have the will, the determination and the strength to complete my weight loss goals. I can push myself to the maximum by taking it a little bit at a time and asking God for help."

"Let's be realistic here. You won't drop two jean sizes in one day. You won't lose fifty pounds in one month. You're going to binge every now and then. You will go a day or two without working out. Your weight is going to fluctuate here and there. You're going to try new techniques, and they're not going to work. You're a human being. You're going to fail. But nothing great is ever accomplished without a few obstacles. JUST KEEP GOING." ~unknown

My 2017 Overall Goal is to release 20 lbs.
Ongoing commitment:

*Never Miss a Monday
*Never Go 3 Days W/Out Exercise
*Workout at Least 3 Days A Week
*Never Give Up!

My healthy motivation is regularly reminding myself that healthy feels good and losing weight is like dating and marriage. All those things you did while dating don't stop once you get married (or reach goal). You have to keep that fire lit and sparks flying! ~Sookie

No matter what life throws my way,

~ I will remain focused
~ I will take time out for me
~ I will NOT give in to negative thoughts
~ I will return to the present moment
~ I will Trust God that everything will be okay

Today, I promise I will not quit.

I pledge that no matter, how many ups and downs I pass through, I will continue on my journey.

I pledge to make a NEW START today, and forgive myself for my past, and to stop being so critical of myself.

I pledge to take control of myself, to stop making excuses, and stop blaming other people or situations.

I pledge to treat myself as I would my best friend, because that is who I am.

I pledge to stay in the race and to be a WINNER!

"The Lord will fight for you: you only need to be still." Exodus 14:14 (NIV)

Don't give up on God and He won't give up on you - He's Able!

    Sookie, Oh, how I miss you, my dear! You were definitely our quietest Leader, but also the sweetest! I'm glad you're planning to be back in the Kitchen, and that you can stay in the Community until then. And yes, I ride a stationary bike at the gym & at home, faithfully!!!! A lot!!!! It's the only thing, besides upper-body strength training, that I can do. And I love ST, too, so it's all good. Drop by my sparkpage once in a while, to check up on me. Oh, and to see our new Team logo/icon. We're voting on it this week & I'll post it soon. We decided it was time for Brimley to retire! Hugs headed your way, Carol

    emoticon Happy St. Patrick's Day emoticon

    St. Patrick was a gentleman
    Who through strategy and stealth
    Drove all the snakes from Ireland.
    Here's toasting to his health.
    But not too many toasting so
    Lest you lose yourself and then
    Forget the good St. Patrick
    And see all those snakes again.

    There is a clean slate in front of you. It is called TODAY. You have within you the power to turn that clean slate into a beautiful story which can change lives today...yours and everyone you encounter today. Live it well.
