1.never give up
2.loose enough weight to go on our mini trampoline.(have 30lbs to go for that one.)
3.get into my brown outfit my husband brought in tunisia for my birthday(may the first.)
4.get into my chines silk dress.(have a long way to go,it is a size 40 and i am 52-54 now.)
5.get to ultimate goal of 160lbs then revaluate if need be.

baby steps.
1.not be too hard on myself,treat me like my own best friend.
2.be more realistic.
3.do at least 10 min exercise a day.no excuses.
4.try to keep in my calorie count and not be too hard on my self when i don´t

12.think of something positive,to make me smile or feel happy at least once aday till it becomes habbit and i don´t have to consiously.

13.be grateful to be alive,remeber no matter how bad it is there are always someone else worse then you out there in the world.be thankful for what we all have.in my case.a husband who loves me,three beautiful children,a roof over my head,food in the cupboards,electrical good ie.this computer,spark people,enough water in the tap.the list could go on and on.in the words of monty python,always look on the bright side of life....da dum ,da,dum,ALWAYS LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE OF LIFE:

    I think you have a plan that will allow you to succeed. Next time you feel overwhelmed or stressed jump on sparks and blog about it before you eat. Just getting it out of your system will help and maybe you won't eat. Also you'll get all the encouraging feedback from your spark friends. Good Luck! Go Bahama Mamas!!

    I know it's hard sometimes and we all come to bumps in the road where we feel like quitting but we can either be five years older the same as we are or we can be five years older closer to our goals. Baby steps is a great way to approach it and I know you can do it!!! emoticon

    Well, I would suggest that you pretend the problems are standing in front of you and you punch them out (and kick too if you want!) However, you are in no shape to do that at the moment. Later.

    For now, I think you better just get as much rest as possible and pray. Thank God you have friends to help you.

    By the way things sound I don't know that you have given up yet!? With all your challenges you continue to move forward and that is commendable. You're amazing!

    I love your goal about being your own best friend. It's definately worth mention cause it feels so hard to do sometimes, doesn't it?

    May Allah bless you and your family!

    Life is full of obstacles; the race is not for the strong; but for who can endure. All our achievements are made of baby steps. 10 minutes of exercise; reading a positive quote; reaching out to others; support and believing in ourselves. You said it best, "Don't give Up". We really are here for ourselves and each other.

    I really admire the way you are able to bounce back with such enthusiasm. You have gone through some really stressful events lately and have been the glue that holds your family together- and still have the determination to keep making healthy choices for yourself. You are great!!

    You are not alone.As long as you know what you have to do and are willing to do it....that is half the battle.
    You can do it.Everyone is behind you.
    Good luck.
