This quote today is for all my dear Sparkie friends, both present and the one's to come !!.
My friends have made the story of my life. In a thousand ways they have turned my limitations into beautiful privileges, and enabled me to walk serene and happy in the shadow cast by my deprivation.
- Helen Keller | Friendship Quotes
Thank you all for your wonderful support and friendship .. I am so privileged and so proud and happy ... My enduring love to you all ..
This is another of Helen Kellers wonderful quotes ..
Do not think of today's failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow. You have set yourself a difficult task, but you will succeed if you persevere; and you will find a joy in overcoming obstacles.
This is so much how I came to succeed in losing most of my excess weight .
I found that if I wasted my time wallowing in self regrets nothing would ever change .
It was in accepting that I, and only I could help myself ..
We can have all sorts of encouragement and I thank Sparkpeople and all my wonderful Sparkie friends for your support and love and comments .
but if my mind was not open to change it would not happen...I think we have to realise all of this before we can commit and move forward!.
I have been feeling a little drained the last few days due to one of my 7 day headaches.
So I went searching for something that will give me a lift !.
I am going to share it with you this morning !! ...
You can do anything if you have enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is the yeast that makes your hopes rise to the stars. With it, there is accomplishment. Without it there are only alibis.
This is just so true ...
Especially after winning 10 Spark points on the wheel!! I have been stuck on the lower end of the scale for several weeks now ... It is refreshing to get into double figures!!
Have a wonderful Sparkfilled day all my dear Sparkie Friends

In my search for inspiration today I came across this ...I though it quite pertinant to our quest for Health and Fitness .. what do you think?
You may wonder, 'How can I leave it all behind if I am just coming back to it? How can I make a new beginning if I simply return to the old?' The answer lies in the return. You will not come back to the 'same old thing.' What you return to has changed because you have changed. Your perceptions will be altered. You will not incorporate into the same body, status, or world you left behind. The river has been flowing while you were gone. Now it does not look like the same river. [The Book of the Vision Quest]

Gives us food for thought doesn't it?
