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!"
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!!!
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.
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.
