Welcome!

I am on the road to health - with fits and starts along the way. My highest weight was 288 and I started Sparkpeople seriously at 280 in April, 2013, determined to lose at least 100 pounds. I've lost 30, gained some back, but I'm on the road.

I'm losing 'from the inside out" -- getting healthy in body, mind, and spirit, with the love and encouragement from so many Sparkfriends in this wonderful community. This, I know, is what I need for long term stable ...
Welcome!

I am on the road to health - with fits and starts along the way. My highest weight was 288 and I started Sparkpeople seriously at 280 in April, 2013, determined to lose at least 100 pounds. I've lost 30, gained some back, but I'm on the road.

I'm losing 'from the inside out" -- getting healthy in body, mind, and spirit, with the love and encouragement from so many Sparkfriends in this wonderful community. This, I know, is what I need for long term stable weight loss.

I've been though major life changes here, and I keep learning to love myself, treat myself well, and thus eat better and move my body.

My nutrition is mostly whole foods, plant based. Some fish when dining out.

This tip is from Cleveland Clinic Chief Wellness Officer Mike Roizen, MD, from his new book, This Is Your Do-Over. Here’s a sneak peek at his essential do-over deeds.

We all have disagreements sometimes. Life isn't about holding hands and singing happy tunes to hide our troubles. However, you need to decide if you want to be a "but" or an "and" kind of person. The “but” people don’t want solutions. They want to settle. They want to wallow in their misery. The “and” people find solutions to problems. They inspire others to do their best. They contribute to the growth of people and ideas — and, ultimately, to the health of us all. Even if you are an avowed lifelong naysayer, you still have the opportunity to discover your inner enthusiast. Once you find your purpose and passion, your optimism will increase and your do-over becomes stronger and stronger. In the end, optimism is really just about cultivating happiness in your everyday moments.

Treating "any old job" as if it were your dream job is the fastest way to spark the kind of life changes that will yield your dream job.

Same for any old house, friend, day, life, or pair of shoes. emoticon

FOCUS on what's important, CAPTURE the good times, emoticon DEVELOP from the negatives, and if things don't work out, TAKE ANOTHER SHOT."
