Find that control!

Thursday, June 19, 2014

I can feel myself spiraling out of control & need to take it back here & now! I'm so glad I have SP to fall back on. I have dozens of friends here & I don't even know your first names! How amazing it is to feel your kindness, support, & unconditional love every day, & to know it is because we only know each others hearts! Thank you all for being my friends, for being supportive & being REAL!!

No names is fine with me because I get much more than a name from each of you. I cannot thank you enough for being here!

    Congratulations to you!!!!! I am so happy for you!! It has to be a great feeling! I am not quite halfway there but working on it! I figure it will take me two more years. I have been an active member for two years. How long did it take you?

I'm so very excited that I have only 700 more points more to achieve "Level 20 Sparker"!! 100,000 points is not easy to reach & it's been more than 4 years in the making. More importantly, that goal has kept me coming to my Spark website on almost a daily basis. For me that is even more huge! By logging on nearly every day I have exposed myself to articles, recipes, health tips, friend's blogs, inspiration, feedback, tips, better choices, support, weight loss, new friends, Spark Goodies, activities, exercise, nutrition education, food tracking, accountability, Books, DVD's & so much more. Every time one of you "likes" or "comments" on my status or rare blog, I smile & want to continue forward! It's amazing what I "WON'T" eat because I know I have to "track it"! It's amazing what I "WILL" do for just "one more" activity point! It's also incredible to me that I have many "Level 20 Spark Friends"! You all are an inspiration to me every day! I also admire those of you who have thousands upon thousands of activity points! As my weight drops, my activity can now increase.

I so need to give some HUGE hugs & THANK YOU'S! Marjijane, THANK YOU for introducing me to & hooking me on this great addiction!! Cousin Sheila, you were 1 of my very 1st inspirations! Thank you for allowing me to celebrate every day with you!! To my Hoye team, thanks for being there with me, especially Patty!!To my level 20 friends, thank you for your support & inspiration. Because you "don't quit", I won't either!! Thank you to ALL my Spark Friends for hanging in with me, loving me, & cheering me on! SP is the most awesome tool & I'm Blessed beyond measure to have all of you with me everyday!!

emoticon & Blessings, emoticon
emoticon I will emoticon emoticon

Love, Molly emoticon

Finally back on the weight loss trail!

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

I'm thrilled to report that I am finally losing once again. It is such a struggle & it's easy for me to want to throw in the towel. However, I refuse to do that! 12 1/2 yrs of weight watchers has forced me to be accountable to my every .2 of a pound. I WILL lose it in 2014. That's my commitment to myself! I want to be healthier & live longer. I want to defy the odds & stay a teenager at least until I'm 99! I'm so grateful to everyone on SP for the support & friendship! And I'm so excited that I'm coming close to becoming a level 20 Sparker! Thank you SparkPeople for giving me a shot at this!

    I especially like #11 - I have had that too much lately and am trying to keep away from it. (Board members - so kind of hard.

Thank you for sharing this.
