Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
Howdy! I'm a Texas mother of 2, wife of 1 and teacher of many. I started this program January 9th of 2006 and was addicted through November. At this time, I began to eat my way through birthdays, Thanksgiving and Christmas, and didn't stop. My goal was to be at 150 by tracking my nutrition, fitness and water everyday and walking 5-6 days a week. I need to find the motivation that drove me halfway to my goal.
I have accomplished so many of my goals with this help of this program! But, I am lacking the motivation I had before.
My name is April. I live in a small town where I am a 3rd grade teacher, wife, and mother of 2.
My favorite book is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. My favorite movie is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. My favorite food? Hmmmmm. Can you guess?
My favorite quote is from an Emily Dickinson poem:
If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help a lonely person
into happiness again
I shall not live in vain.

Secrets of Success
This user doesn't have any secrets of success.
Hello. I was just browsing the site, and came across your page.
I wanted to take this oportunity to invite you to our team. It is called "OVERCOMING OBSTACLES".
It is a forum that my wife (ticklemepink-aka Carol) formed. At first, it was for people with a disabitliy,but now it's expanded to everyone..disability or no disability. As a matter of fact, more then 1/2 of the group do not have a disability. Carol says "it's like a bunch of angels carrying all of us to our goals"
The link is located on my sparkpage, and the main discussion room is still named "disabiltiies group".
People post their successes in life,their obstacles, their personal stories, motivation to succeed, advice, different health obstacles, parents' topics, different age rooms, books, crafts, literary, recipes, motivation..etc.etc..and there's even a thread for jokes(to name only a few).. There are many little challenges posted too, to give us a little added "spark". (you are welcome to create your own topic or challenge for the "O.O" family too)
I was hoping that you will click the link, join the group, and come to post in the main room, & maybe share some of your own successes,obstacles, goals, etc..for us to all get aquainted,better. As you read some of the posts in there, you will see some amazing accomplishments, before and after joining sparkpeople. Spark coach Jen is a member of our team, also, and is willing to help everyone.
We hope to welcome you! (my wish is that everyone here on sparkpeople has a place to meet..wether they attend to other groups, I feel it is important that there is a place like that..PLEASE feel freeee to invite your friends in with you..I know they'll be almost as delighted as we are to welcome you to the" place where people congregate"!! )
I hope you will click on my sparkpage, and add a comment if you need any questions answerred. (or you can sparkmail Carol or myself..we are more then willing to help)
p.s.. i know this invite is a bit long..you'll be surprised though..when you read my posts in the forum..they are short LOL (I just wanted to tell you as much as I could here, to make you comfortable and familiar and to feel welcomed)
