motivation article

Monday, February 21, 2011

For today's pre-challenge in the Biggest Loser Spring Challenge, we were to read an article on motivation.

www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motivat
ion_articles.asp?id=79


I chose this article about "Bill Smith" and all that he went through and how he persevered to lose his weight and get healthy.

When I read articles about how someone on Sparks was motivated to get healthy, I know it's possible, not just a dream and I know I can do it too.

"To him who is determined it remains only to act." Italian Proverbs







Are you determined to reach your daily, weekly, monthly and final goals ? And what are you doing to accomplish this ?

It's all about how badly do you want it and what are you willing to do to reach it !

Have a great day Sparkers !

    Determination is definitely a key to success on this journey!
I used to end all my comments with the following when I first joined Spark. . . maybe it's time to use it again!
"Stay FOCUSED on your goals, DETERMINED to reach them, and POSITIVE that you will!"

"Someday will never come and take you by the hand." Dale Adams



Where are the blogs? my dear friend Mary asks.

As most of you know I've been suffering with muscle spasms in my back that have been wearing me down. I haven't been able to get a proper nights sleep and I'm just so tired.

Today my back is starting to feel better, I'm sure the pills the doctor prescribed on Monday are helping.

Update on my mom - she got home from hospital Tuesday afternoon, she is doing much better.

Thanks for all your hugs, prayers and get well wishes.

"The art of advice is to make the recipient believe he thought the thought of it himself." Frank Tyger







Happy Sunday Sparkers !

Thanks for the prayers for my mom. She has been moved to Cardio Unit with limited visitation, 10 minutes only. But my sister and brother both said she was in good spirits and laughing yest.

It is very hard as I'm 1500 miles from home so rely on info from them. My sister gave me mom's phone number so now I can call her room and talk to her.
