Positive thoughts produce positive results.

My phrase for 2016 is "less talk and more action"

It's so easy to talk about doing things to help me get healthier, but when it comes right down to doing those things sometimes I have a problem putting them into action. So reading a team mates blog and recalling an Elvis song came up with my phrase and it seems to be working for me. It's surprising where we sometimes find inspiration, there's plenty on Spark to be found, we just have to find what speaks to us.

Wishing all a very successful 2016!

    Hello. So nice to hear from you! emoticon on your weight loss! I know you worked hard for it! You have traction....keep it going! Did you get your juicer? I've been way off course from client work busyness though at one point I was doing great and lost 12# (regained 5# now). Had a good day yesterday....planning for a repeat today. Still love my fitbit; still using my SPAT, too -- the SPAT auto loads my fitness onto Spark (know fitbit will do that, too, but haven't made the conversion).

    Temps are finally starting to get warmer here now, too. I've been gardening and enjoying it (though my body is protesting from the work).

    Have an awesome week, Shirl! emoticon

    Hello Shirl, Thanks for stopping by my SparkPage. Congratulations on the compliment from your neighbor. You said you can't see yourself as any thinner. Are you clothes fitting differently? And do you have that old standby, a tape measure? You might start tracking these details and surprise yourself! Have a great day. Carol
