My scale was friendly this morning and said I was down another two pounds today!! Man does it feel good to see those numbers go down! Though I have 145lbs to loose, I realize I need to love myself at every size. I am celebrating each and every small loss was with a toast (of water) to myself and my success!

Had I been asked that question two days ago, my answer would have been no! I never have, and it sounds quite silly. I've been doing so well staying on track. Each day I get on the scale (I know, I know, "you should only weigh weekly") and I feel happy that I was successful the day before. Because I ate what was good for me, each day it has shown on the scale with a slight loss.
However; Last night I had a dream that I was having a HUGE chocolaty shake, and I thought nothing of it. It was the most awesome, delicious shake. As I slurped away the (I'm sure what would be) millions of calories the shake started to taste bitter, but it my blissful, sugar overdosed moment, I continued downing this mammoth shake. Suddenly when I got toward the bottom; my chocolaty goodness, turned to coffee, with coffee beans completely filling the bottom of the cup (I know most people like coffee, I'm not one of them). The bitter taste started to burn my mouth and ache throughout my body. I could not fix the problems the coffee had infused within my body and I started to shake (and then I woke up ...)
I woke up feeling nauseous, but as I sit and ponder, I've decided that my mind is wrapping around the idea that having sweet stuff isn't worth the stress it puts on my body. As I sit here enjoying my apples, it seems they are more sweet than the shake, and I know that my body is thanking me :)
Enjoy something today that your body will thank you for tomorrow!!

It only takes one push to knock the entire row of domino’s over. And that’s exactly what happens when we start to feel defeated!
We have one bad lunch, and the day is shot, we have one bad day and the week is shot. The week turns into a month, and you suddenly find yourself on December 31st making the same old new years resolution.
That isn’t where I want to be this December 31st. I want to be 30 lbs lighter (that 10% of my current weight, LOST!)
Accountability is key!
Why is AA such a successful program? (I personally haven’t gone through the program, but loved ones have). Sponsors!!
Every one has a sponsor, a sponsor keeps you accountable. Sponsors become friends; friends who keep you on track, friends who talk to you at midnight when you are struggling.
Today I challenge everyone on Spark to find a “sponsor”. Look through your buddy list, send a message, Cheer someone on. Let them know they are an inspiration to you. We’ve all been there, are there, or are trying to never “be there” again. Reach out today to someone new and get your spark on!!

In case we needed more reasons to loose that weight, I heard on the radio (from the arthritis foundation) that for every pound that you loose, it's takes FOUR Pounds off of your knees.
So if I want to loose 170 it will take 680 POUNDS OF PRESSURE OFF MY KNEES!
Yes, sign me now please!!!
