    Char,
I have to agree with Mary about staying off the scales and set yourself down and go over what is going into your mouth at work, at home all during the day. I know what your going through as I am going up and down and up and down. I know that some of mine is because of my shoulders and not being able to cook for over 3 months. My husband God love him tries but he doesn't understand that I can't eat the same as he does. I am back to cooking now and hope to see my weight go down. I can't do excercises but I can walk and I am trying to walk some everyday. I know that this life change will work and sometimes we fall off the path and have to climb back on and start our journey again.

    Char,

How many times have we heard people say to us, you didn't get here overnight, so don't expect to lose it over night either? It is so true, so just keep at it. Remember you have done it before, you can do it again. You have the drive in you. I wish I was more like you!

    CHAR, YOU ARE DOING SO MANY THINGS RIGHT. FOCUS ON THAT AND PERHAPS STOP WEIGHING YOURSELF FOR AWHILE. EVEN WITH THE SPARKPEOPLE CONVENTION GIVING ME MOMENTUM, THERE IS STILL NO "QUICK FIX". THIS IS A JOURNEY WITH UPS AND DOWNS. WE ARE HUMAN BEINGS FULL OF EXTERNAL DISTRACTIONS, SO SOMETIMES WE CONCEED AND ALLOW DISTRACTIONS TO TAKE US OFF COURSE. EMBRACE EVERY PART OF THE JOURNEY, EVEN WHEN YOU GO OFF COURSE BECAUSE EACH PART OF THE JOURNEY IS A WAKE UP CALL.

CONSIDER YOURSELF KICKED!

CHAR - YOU HAVE COME SO FAR.... DON'T LET THIS DISCOURAGE YOU. IF ANYONE CAN DO THIS, YOU CAN! YOU'VE GOT THE STAMINA TO MOVE, MOVE, MOVE EVERYDAY WHILE THE REST OF US TAKE THINGS EASY....
I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE 'SECRET' IS... EXCEPT THIS IS A LIFESTYLE CHANGE SO YOU'VE GOT TO CONTINUE MAKING THOSE CHANGES FOR LIFE..... DON'T RELAX ONCE YOU LOSE A LITTLE WEIGHT.... CAUSE IT'LL FIND YOU AGAIN!
I HAVE FAITH IN YOU GIRLFRIEND! YOU'LL GET YOUR 'GROOVE' GOING AGAIN.

P.S. I SURE HOPE THERE'S SOME WAY THAT YOU CAN MAKE IT TO WHEELING IN JULY TO MEET US.... SAVE YOUR PENNIES G/F! LOL

LOVE, MARLA

    CHAR, NO ONE HAS ALL THE ANSWERS...SOMETIMES THEY LIE DEEP WITHIN EACH ONE OF US. IF YOU ARE LIKE ME, YOU NEED TO FIND YOUR TRIGGERS AND TRY TO AVOID THEM. MAKE SURE YOU ARE MAKING GOOD CHOICES AND CHECKING YOUR PORTION SIZES. I KNOW IT IS EASIER SAID THEN DONE.
YOU ARE HOWEVER MAKING GOOD CHOICES IN DRINKING YOUR WATER AND EATING YOUR FRUITS AND VEGGIES...SO YOU ARE ON THE RIGHT TRACK.
REMEMBER;
GOD GIVES US A NEW DAY EVERY 24 HOURS, START FRESH. EACH DAY IS A NEW BEGINNING, TREAT IT AS SUCH. MAKE THE MOST OF EVERY DAY THAT GOD GIVES YOU.
WAKE UP EACH MORNING KNOWING THAT YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN A NEW CHANCE, PUT A SMILE ON YOUR FACE, GIVE YOURSELF A LITTLE PEP TALK BECAUSE YOU KNOW YOU CAN DO THIS AND GET YOUR DAY STARTED WITH A HAPPY THOUGHT, AND THANK GOD YOU HAVE THIS NEW DAY. BEFORE YOU GO TO SLEEP EACH NIGHT, THANK GOD FOR THE DAY YOU HAVE JUST HAD AND GIVE YOURSELF A PAT ON THE BACK FOR A JOB WELL DONE...THAT YOU DID THE BEST YOU COULD FOR THAT DAY. BE AT PEACE WITH YOURSELF.
SET YOUR GOALS FOR YOU, NOT FOR SOMEONE ELSE. YOU ARE IN CONTROL! YOU ARE WORKING TOWARD MAKING YOURSELF A HEALTHIER YOU. YOU CAN DO THIS!!!
KEEPING YOU IN PRAYER THAT EVERYTHING STARTS LOOKING UP FOR YOU. GOD BLESS YOU AS YOU CONTINUE YOUR JOURNEY TO A HEALTHIER YOU.
HUGS,
HELEN
