MSNICHOLS39's SparkPeople Blog MSNICHOLS39's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community Saturday Spark Vlog 1: Watering Can Workout or Be Careful What You Plant Blogging is one of the features of SparkPeople that intrigued me first about the site. All the cool success stories! I have blogged, and with some success, but not with any consistency. I know that I may be more successful if I start bloggin again. Knowing that I have gone ahead and made a Video Blog (or Vlog) about my latest workout: The Watering Can Workout. Someone planted flowers at my workplace in South Georgia but no one seems to want to step up to the plate and water them and it has be...

It is the true reason I am unhappy with my weight, which is odd because even though my weight registers at the Morbidly Obese scale, I do not carry all my weight in my chin. But, as I stated yesterday. I would keep all the weight on my body if I could get rid of that little wobble under my chin. <BR> <BR> This is me being vulnerable. I recent...

Mon, 14 Dec 2009 12:01:25 EST Our Deepest Fear Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. <BR> Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. <BR> It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. <BR> We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? <BR> Your playing small does not serve the world. <BR> There is nothing enlightened about shrinking <BR> so that other people won't feel insecure around you. <BR> We are all meant to shine, as children do....

Fri, 6 Nov 2009 11:33:36 EST My First Video Blog_November 5 Day 3 I'm giving the video blogging a try! It'll be fun to see the weight come off my face, which is where I hate it the MOST right now.... Thu, 5 Nov 2009 12:45:18 EST Day Three-Woe is Me... Well it's day three of (Hopefully) my last diet ever. I am hungry, but determined. As I say on my page, something has to work. Actually I know that many things work, and they have for me in the past, it's just that I don't finish what I start. I get comfortable with a 30-50 pound loss and quit the hard work and gain it back. This time I'm going for the whole enchilada--100 pounds. I believe I can do it~! Spark is a wonderful website. Looking forward to making some new friends too! Thu, 5 Nov 2009 12:24:52 EST
