This is my first blog. It is time for me to to take ownership. I signed up with Sparks this summer. I have been dipping my toe in the site for too long.I have read every blog and article.Weight loss and and inspirational stories are my motivation.
Weight Watchers was how I lost my first 32 lbs. Over the last 2 years I have put on 10 lbs. My health has always been my reason to lose weight and right now my blood pressure is slightly elevated and I do not want to take medication.
I lose a few lbs. and then put it back on. I have talked to a few other Sparkers about how they lost that last 10 lbs. and guess what, I always knew the answer. I just wasn't ready to " take ownership"
By adding another 1/2 hour of exercise, buying a fitbit and using that dusty resistance band - the scale finally moved.
My quote on my site is "If you always do what you always did you always get what you always got" UMMM guess I should have read it myself.
So my fellow Sparkers "Take Ownerhship" it works.

    Hi, I am on the London team.
I am away right now, been travelling to the north country.
Welcome to our team.

There are 4 of us on this team who have the fitbit
we all love them.

You are so right, we have to claim ownership of our thinking.

Come to the team and read Sandi's bogs, she is doing wonderful and keeping the weight off.

I will send you her page link in a spark mail

    Bingo! You've nailed it.

One of my favorite quotes from SP: "If you really want something, you'll find a way. If you don't, you'll make an excuse."

Congrats on giving up excuses and best of success to you on your journey.
