To live is to choose. But to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for, where you want to go and why you want to get there.
- Kofi Annan
This quote is so true to spark. We must choose our path, if we should just start out on our own we could end up anywhere. I myself choose spark. This site is awesome. I have learned so much and continue to learn daily. I have met so many wonderful people and friends.
Christine, Diane, Ramona fay, Teresa, you have been my building blocks this year. I want to thank Missy, Henry, and all my I can do all things through christ team members for always haveing a wonderful word to give. Beamish, you are awesome. You always pick me up when i'm down and lift me up with words of hope and your faith is unyielding.
I know there are many more out there that i could thank but this isn't the grammy's so i will quit. But really I look forward to each and everyone of your blogs, notes, comments. But most of all thank you for just being you.
I know what i want. I want to reach my goal weight in this next year. With my spark friends help and prayers I know we all can master some part of that. So i'm off to begin my new phase in my health. god bless you all...michelle.

today i vow to get back on plan. i weigh in tomorrow and then i'm going to head into a new week with new possibilities. i'm staying away from chips, choc, and the likes. meaning i wll not buy them to have in the house as this leads to eating triggers i don't want or need.
now with this said.....my sparkversary is almost here. i'm down 10 pounds for the year. not a great accomplishment to many, but a larg hurdle for me. this weigh loss in a year means i kept the weight off that i did loose. i have lost, gained, and held sometimes the same weight twice this year. but i'm ready for the next level of fitness......i would love to see a goal reached this coming year. time will tell.
good luck to my spark friends in this next coming year...you all inspire me to continue.

First create a great dream for your future. Then create concrete plans. Finally, take action and persevere.
this quote is for our new year. we have to have concrete plans for this journey or we will end up where we have always been. nowhere....so this day and all through this month let's try to plan. plan meals, snacks, exercise, relaxation time. but most of all let's plan for our future as healthy individuals.
let's imagine a world where we won't have to take pills for depression, heart, diabetes, anxiety. we can have all this with just a bit of planning. diet and exercise is key to living a healty lifestyle. the few minutes it takes us to prepare for the coming week is the difference between living a full life today or short changing us tomorrow.
i for one am ready to plan and succeed. i have takend this one step at a time. i have gotten upset, overeaten at many functions, gotten less then perfect sleep. but this day i am taking control of my future. afterall it is up to me to succeed or fail and i choose succeeding.

Our lives are defined not by the challenges we encounter, but by how we respond to those challenges.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
this is so true in life and on spark. we encounter many challenges daily with trying to live the healthy lifestyle. some brought on by us and some from the world at large. it is how we repond to certain challenges that decide if we will succeed or fail. that has never been truer then in this month alone.
we will face many challenges this month, candy, cookies, parties, gifts of chocolates, offiec festivites. how we take each head on is going to mean the difference of winning this month or not.
so lets decide here and now how we shall handle the powers that be. we can come out ahead this month all we have to do is have faith in our abilities as well as prepare for the days and weeks ahead.
good luck to each and every one of us this coming month. i for one am going to give it all i've got.
