" Once our minds are 'tattooed' with negative thinking, our chances for long-term success diminish "





Weigh in last night I stayed the same. I have finally come to the conclusion that I cannot get away with eating breads, even healthy breads, as I don't do anything "white"

So this week I'm going to have one starch meal either breakfast or lunch of either brown rice or multigrain pasta and kick start some weight loss.

have a wonderful Sparky day !

" Life has no limitations, except the ones you make. "



Thinking

If you think you are beaten, you are
If you think you dare not, you don't,
If you like to win, but you think you can't
It is almost certain you won't.

If you think you'll lose, you're lost
For out of the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow's will
It's all in the state of mind.

If you think you are outclassed, you are
You've got to think high to rise,
You've got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.

Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the man WHO THINKS HE CAN!

- Walter D. Wintle - 1905

Sunday

"This is the precept by which I have lived: Prepare for the worst; expect the best; and take what comes."



Sunday Blessings to all my Spark Pals. I loved this cartoon with Pooh and Piglet and what it says. -

"Piglet smiled up to Pooh from behind"
"Pooh!" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing" said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw.
"I just wanted to be sure of you!"

I know that no matter what my Spark pals are always close by me. I certainly appreciate all the love and support I get from everyone.

"To will is to select a goal, determine a course of action that will bring one to that goal, and then hold to that action until the goal is reached. The key is action." Michael Hanson

My goal is to get healthy......



I will achieve my goal by eating healthy foods, in proper proportions.......



I will achieve my goal by learning how to handle stress without turning to food......



I will achieve my goal by getting mobile...... no excuses, just do it !
