SparkPeople mentioned in the Molina Healthcare Newsletter*Fall 2010!

Wednesday, November 24, 2010

Hi there, Sparkers!
I finally opened my Molina healthcare newsletter, and there, on page 5, is a short article about Sparkpeople! I think it's great that the word is getting out, especially into the healthcare community. If more people paid attention to the their health and well-being, then the pharmaceutical companies would go broke, because most of our problems are diet related, and exercise related. We can make ourselves better by doing the simple things:

Eat less, watch your portions, and get your protein, good carbs, and lean fats into your meal plan.
Exercise more, incorporating physical activity into your lifestyle so it becomes a part of your daily life, not something that has to be "planned in".
Keep a positive attitude, and tell yourself you are WORTH IT!

    Y'know, JWoods, I've been there, sometimes I feel like I'm still stuck there, but once you (and I!) realize it's an ongoing journey, then we know that it IS possible. I truly feel that it's a three part solution:
1. Portion control, moderation in all things dealing with food. If you want a bite of something "bad", then have some! But stop after 2 bites, get up and walk away from it.
2. Activity counts, exercise, walk, take the stairs, park far from the entrance to a store, little things add up. Gotta burn the calories if you want to lose the weight.
3. Change your mindset (for me, the hardest part of the whole equation) to a more positive, self-loving attitude. Tell yourself that you CAN do this, and your body will start to believe it and do what you want it to do.

    I really appreciate your comment to "make ourselves better by doing the simple things." I've come to realize that most of my life I've somehow made it complicated; possibly because I didn't think I was worth it! So - thank you!
