Friday, April 11, 2014

I have just read a few Spark pages and have renewed hope that I can continue to have success on my journey to better health and weight loss. If you are having trouble staying motivated go read a few Spark stories.

Keep up the hard work! It is worth it!

5K today !!! Please Cheer for Me !!

Saturday, January 18, 2014

A Sparkfriend, TOTALFOCUS, inspired me last month to sign up for a 5K. Today is the day and I'm excited. I have done a 5K before but this one is a timed one. I'm a little nervous.

All I know is...

If it wasn't for Sparkpeople, I'd have all my weight back on.

Thank you everyone.

It's not easy being green....

Sunday, November 24, 2013

It's not easy being green...and it's not easy staying on track and maintaining. I would say I stopped maintaining my goal weight (145) back in 2011. This was when our friend passed away unexpectedly. I have regained 15 to 20 and have been maintaining there. That's good news because in the past I would have gained it all back plus some. My mind is telling me "Well it was good while it lasted (the size 10 jeans). I have a hard time realizing I can get this extra weight back off pretty quickly if I would just set my mind to it and move forward.

I owe my success to the things I have learned on Sparkpeople and all my Sparkfriends. Thanks to all of you and thanks for reading my Blog.

Today is NEW and I have a plan.

    I agree, Julie. All those years I lost weight, then promptly re-gained it were really wasted. How wonderful to have the Spark site to help us maintain. We will both get these last few lbs. off!!!

    You absolutely MUST pat yourself on the back for having stopped the old "put it all back on plus some". That in itself is a step forward, a huge step. Even more so you have a plan......and that's where it all begins. Get the plan out and turn it into the reality you did once before.

When the going gets tough....

Sunday, October 20, 2013

The tough get going. But with Spark friends you don't have to go it alone. The spark site and my Spark friends have been here for me for over five years. They have kept me from regaining my losses. So, I'm saying to you never give up on your journey to better health. Get tough and turn to your friends when your times are tough.

With much love to all of you !!!

    I'm with you on that. I have been here 7 yrs and some sparkers have gone the whole rout with me. This year....I am doing it. I have conquered many things over the 7yrs and feel like this yr will be a defining yr of my life. Hope it will be for you too, if not, dont give up, dont despair....just keep plugging away.
