Hi Sarina, we're a pretty quiet team, but two of us post consistently to three threads:

1) What word describes you today? (a good way to review and summarize at the end of the day or a good way to create a daily affirmation!)

2) Recognize one positive (good way to refocus - which I do at the end of the day)

3) Gratitude and abundance (a daily list of several things you are grateful for)

Feel free to jump in on any or all threads! Glad you're here.

Welcome, welcome! This team has helped me by giving me a place to laugh about mis-steps and put positive thinking in my forefront. Hope you find it as helpful.

Hi Daisy, welcome to the team! I think we all think negatively on occasion at least, but I also think that it can be a habit. Any time you hear think a negative thought just immediately replace it with a positive one... Such as "I'm fat and can't lose weight" (which will just ensure that you don't!) could be changed around to "I love how strong my body is and I eat foods that keep it that way". That seems simplistic but it has worked for me - even though I have a long ways to go!! LOL

I think losing weight is about far more than eating the right foods and exercising. We have to build healthy mental patterns as well, and rather than trying to identify and eradicate the negative patterns, I think drowning them out with positive, healthy patterns is easier and puts the focus on moving forward.

We've got several regular threads we post to here so feel free to join in where and whenever you like!

Hello, Im new here to Spark and your team. I really, REALLY need some help to stop thinking so negatively and bring the positive vibes back into my life. I suffer from depression and have found that my thought patterns are so engrained, i really need to focus on re-mapping those neurons to some positive messages! Any help, support, advice, links, are appreciated and welcomed!

Hi all,

The name of this group just stopped me in my tracks: Passionate People Creating Positive Thoughts. That is just what I was looking for. Looking forward to the process to unfold spontaneously, because passionate people may be most authentic when they are unaware of how special they truly are in a sarcastic world as ours can be ~ well, depending on where one looks and ~ out of necessity ~ might have to travel. But, thank you for being here, like an pleasant oasis in the daily grind. I plan to stop by often to replenish. :)

Cheers to all, Rocky.

Hi Chef, and welcome to the team! We're not super active, but we do have three threads going on a daily basis - a one-word description of ourselves, one positive from the day, and a gratitude thread. Feel free to pop into one of those or start your own. Glad you're here!

I have been looking for teams to join that excited me and "sparked" my enjoyment of talking endlessly (ok, no worries, not going to talk endlessly right now) regarding what kind of IS a passion for me, maintaining a major weight loss that occurred over a long long period of time and which I have to keep focusing on to maintain.

The name of this team popped out whilst I was browsing.

Anyhow, hello. I have been on spark before but have rejoined and taken the name of a chef (I'm not a chef lol) because I am trying to learn to cook more at home and eat less processed junk. I have a passion for a lot of things but health and keeping the weight off are at least close to the top of the list.

Hi Anni, glad you joined us! Like you I am refusing negativity, but still have moments where it sets up temporary housekeeping inside my head. It's an ongoing facet of growth for me! We are a positive place to hang out - and we have about three daily threads going that we post to if you're interested!

Hi Anni,

Welcome to this team. What are you planning on doing when you get your doctorate? It sounds exciting. Leslie is working on her second master's. I am taking a break from working on my masters in mental health counseling. Penny is a school counselor. It will be interesting to see what other team members will have to share.

One thing I can say for certain, everyone on this team is working towards living their life with a positive focus. If there is anything you would like to see started just let us know and either Penny, Leslie or myself will see what we can do. Since I am currently unemployed, I am the one with the most time on my hands so feel free to get in touch with me.

I hope you enjoy our little team. Please make yourself right at home. And if you have any extra wisdom about tarot cards please allow it to spill over for some of us novices :)

Again, WELCOME, Anni

Bright Blessings,

My name is Anni and I am new to the group. I'm working on my Doctorate in Psychology. I also read Tarot Cards. I know that negativity exists in the world, I just refuse delivery of negative anything in my life sickness, thoughts, friends, even some family members, who are the defination of negativity, or anything else for that matter. If you have ever heard the old song "Accent U Ate the Positive" by Johnny Mercer, you'll know.

Looking forward to being a member of this most positive group.

I'm just about to finish the first master's in Organizational Leadership and then by next June I'll have finished the second in Human Resources. It looks like our weather is about to warm up enough to rain! I'd take that over snow and ice any day... LOL I did a conversion of -17 Celsius to Fahrenheit and human beings should not have to function in weather that cold!! That's the kind of stuff polar bears like!! Yeow!

Hey thanks for welcoming me! I will definitely be checking out more of those threads. Double Master's degree? I admire that!! That must be a ton of work. What are you mastering in? It's cold here too (In Calgary for school, was -17 (Celsius) the other week emoticon )! Hoping for warmth as well, although I do prefer running in the cold because usually nobody is around to see my mouth breathing! lol.

Hi Kaity, welcome to the team! We have a couple of daily threads we post to and you are welcome to join in.

I admire your workout plan. I've sort of reduced mine and have been eating low carb (no starchy carbs - I get a lot from veggies though). I'm also in school - working on a double master's degree and by next Saturday I'll be done with the first one! I live a little south of Vancouver Island in Washington State - it's chilly here right now. I'm wishing it would warm up and rain! LOL

Hello there! My name is Kaity. I'm from Vancouver Island in Canada, living in Calgary, Alberta working on my Criminal Justice degree (almost done!). I joined Spark People 1 or 2 years ago (I can't remember)...it's been slow going but since then I've lost 20 pounds and am currently working on building a better excercise/nutrition routine as it's mostly just been sporadic until now. Currently on week one of Chalean Extreme (a 90 day workout plan)!! and working on cooking 2 new recipes per week! Hope you are all having an awesome December and Happy Holidays!! Feel free to drop by my page anytime or message me.

Hi! I'm Lisa in North Bay, Ontario. Saw this team featured in an e-mail today. I am very focussed on positive thinking in all areas of my life. I attended a Hay House I Can Do It conference in Toronto last year and I love to read and talk to people who believe in the power of positive thinking.

My name is Etoy and I am so happy I came across this group. I joined SP on 4/28 and have lost 6 pounds since joining. I also gained back 2 pounds this weekend, but I expected as much and I am alright with that. Back to tracking! I am a firm believer that positive thoughts lead to positive words which lead to positive actions. I am re-reading a wonderful book that speaks to this - Every Word Has Power: Switch on Your Language and Turn on Your Life by Yvonne Oswald.

Hi Everyone ~ I'm Char in Minneapolis. This is my 2nd time joining SparkPeople. I am joining your team in an effort to prevent my focus from being only on food. I tend to put a lot of effort in thinking about what's going in my mouth rather than considering all the other factors that can lead me to improved health.
Looking forward to knowing you!
Warmly,
Char

Hello all,

My name is Julia and I just joined Spark People last month. I live in a small township in Iowa and right now am enjoying the most beautiful spring weather.

I have decided to make some major changes in my life to improve my health and quality of life. So far I have lost 7 pounds off of the 100 pounds I need to lose. This past week when I went to the doctor I did not loose weight from the two weeks before, but I lost 100 points off of my LDL cholesterol from three months ago. I was excited as that is the lowest my cholesterol has been in over 15 years.

I wanted to join this team as my goal for each day is to look for the positive in my life and find three things which to be thankful for. Therefore, finding this team will be one of my gratitudes for the day.

I wish everyone a happy and peace-filled spring day.

Welcome to Passionate People Creating Positive Thoughts!

This team is designed to give you challenges that will incorporate you personal passions with your passion to live a healthier, more active life.

I have always struggled with my weight because I saw it as it's own project and something that was more of a chore. In reality, your passions in life (music, literature, science, art, whatever!) can aid you in your passion to be healthier.

Your success boils down to how honest you are with yourself and your answer to this one question - How passionate are you? If you can't answer that question, then it is time to do a little soul searching. These challenges will hopefully test you limits and help you find the answer to this question.
