The Road to Success

Wednesday, November 03, 2010

Try to discover the road to success, and you'll seek-but never find. But blaze your own path, and the road to success will trail right behind. -Robert Brault

I think we here at SparkPeople have all learned to do this (or are in the process of learning). That is why we are succeeding! Way to go, us!!!!

    Yes, indeed! We've got to all devise our own plans, to a certain extent. It's a matter of coming up with a customized, healthy way to lose weight, one which accommodates our day-to-day lives. Great entry, Judy!! - Sandi emoticon

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

Thursday, October 28, 2010

The Frankenstein monster wreaked havoc on a couple of villages, causing a lot of property damage. Dr. Frankenstein tried to calm him down. "Why are you in such a bad mood?" he asked. "I'm lonely," moaned the Monster. "I don't have any friends." "But I'm your friend," said Dr. Frankenstein. "You are?" asked the Monster. "Absolutely," said Dr. Frankenstein. "In fact, I like you as much as all my other friends put together." Snarled the Monster, "That's because I AM all your other friends put together!"

Blogs

Sunday, October 24, 2010

I have started doing something lately that seems really to help both me and others. I am trying to comment on first blogs. I think blogging is a bit scary for people - I know it was for me until I started doing it more regularly. Plus, this journey we are on is also a bit scary sometimes.

So, I find that reading a first blog gives me a chance to encourage those who are really just getting started on this lifetime journey. Since I've been doing it for SOOOOOO long - I hope that some of my experiences can help others.

I have now maintained my 112.50 lb. weight loss for 5 years!!! emoticon
I attribute alot of my success to both my TOPS group and my SparkFriends! What would I ever do without you? I don't want to find out - so, I'm here for the duration.

Blogging is a fun way to communicate with lots of my SparkPeople friends at one time. You guys are the best!! Thanks for being there whenever I need you.

    Judy, you're an amazing SparkPerson who's really inspired me in my own journey - a big thank-you for that! I love that you're encouraging new bloggers, too :) Five years!! I can't wait 'til I can say that, too - it's not just an accomplishment at that point; it's a real transformation. And, I might follow your excellent example, too. Lots of emoticon to a pretty fabulous success story - Sandi emoticon

Want to live longer?

Monday, October 18, 2010

For truly long-range motivation, know this: Eating breakfast is linked to a longer and healthier life. Two British studies looking at 262 people ages 21 to 85 found that morning cereal eaters were both physically and mentally healthier. Other studies suggest that cereal - especially oat-based and whole-grain kinds - is protective against heart disease and diabetes. In an ongoing study in Iowa that is following 31,000 women, researchers have found that women who ate whole-grain cereal at least three times a week were 22 percent less likely to have a fatal heart attack than those who ate no cereal. And women eating fiber-rich cereal cut their heart-disease risk by a third and lowered their risk of developing diabetes by a quarter when compared with those who ate a low-fiber meal.

    Love my breakfast! During the week my "go to" breakfast is 8 oz. plain yogurt and an apple. On weekends when I have more time I'll often have eggs, salsa and sometimes cheese...YUM! Sticks with me all day! :-)

    This is a great idea, though it's one I can't follow (doctor's orders...my triglycerides had been high, and he cut out bread and cereal - emoticon I love them, too!). But for peeps like me, we can still get a lot of soluble and insoluble fiber by eating certain fiber-rich produce. My cholesterol was also high, and I got somewhat of a drop with it, too - perhaps by taking psyllium seed (Metamucil) three times a day.

There is a price to pay, though, lol - needless to say, where would I be without my toilet plungers? ;) Still - this is all good for the ticker. So's plunging, in all likelihood - a few moments of vigorous aerobic activity in that! ;) - Sandi emoticon
