I was moving forward with my goals,satisfied that I had made some positive changes, when I fell down AGAIN, (literally). This time I broke my hip! I cried when I realized I had to withdraw from school this semester, and had a pity party..I don't regret it I was in pain and my plans were crushed. Anyone who says they remained positive through any similar circumstance is lying...I did slowly regroup and look at what I could do. The hospital provided a nice selection of healthy, lo-cal foods-so I chose them. The nurses were very happy that I was drinking water. Physical therapists were excellent exercising coaches. And with extra time I read lots of motivational blogs here on Spark. Today I can once again put on my own shoes and found that I have actually lost 3 lbs. So forward I go again, just from a different starting point!

With balance and mobility problems it is often necessary to modify exercises for safety. I would like to share with others ways to keep moving while disabled

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

And then the day came, when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

This isn't my blog but it is for me the most inspirational one I've read yet. AWESOME

Experience is not what happens to a man. It is what a man does with what happens to him.

    hi (: i saw your comment about the coffee on another message board. i love cream and sugar in my coffee too! i started using a really beautiful, small cup so that it felt like i was having something special, and then i add just about a teaspoon of real cream and some 1/2 and 1/2 splenda-sugar blend. it cuts calories and tastes like the real thing. two cups is just over 100 calories and it's worth it! good luck! (:

    I’ve belonged to a lot of teams here on spark-- i really do believe that the Emotional Eaters team is one of the very best, it’s a great group of people- very supportive and encouraging-- and it is very refreshing to talk with people who "get" what you're going through!! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*¸.•´¸.•*¨¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨) ¸.•*¨)
    Check out the main page of the EE team- there are “stickied” topics you may be interested in to get involved- a buddy thread, a place to introduce yourself, weigh-in challenge, a birthday post. ¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨(¸.•´ (¸.•´ (¸.•´¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥. ¸.•♥´ .•´¨¨ ¸´¸.•´¸.•*¨)¸¸.•´ ..•-~'¸.•*¨)
    Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*
