Exercise 1st... Spark 2nd. Works for me!

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't I give myself reasons why I can.

Tired of starting over? Stop giving up!!

NEVER QUIT =]

It's ironic, isn't it, how much things change between our childhood and adulthood, haha! But no matter what has happened in our past, we can't change that - all we have to deal with is NOW and making changes today will give us a brighter tomorrow so I'm really glad you have found us and joined the team!

Sounds like you are on the right path because you are already seeing progress - good for you! I always suggest taking baby steps for lasting change instead of trying to 'change everything at once' and feeling overwhelmed as a result. I'm looking forward to getting to know you thru SparkPeople so be sure to post blogs and messages often!

Welcome to the team ! So not sure I understand. You were skinny and then you got heavier cause of tonic ? Or over eating cause ur mom was scared you would be too skinny ?? For me I was skinny and didn't know it. Lol mom made me feel like I was heavy. Funny what we go thru as a kid.

loving myself as i am beautiful inside and out!!! Think positive .. you can do it!!!..... i do care.��Life is not easy for any of us, but what of that? We must have perseverance and, above all, confidence in ourselves.� � Don't give up we all can do this!!
Lost 110 pounds so far! i am loving it!

Hello to Everyone. I'm new to this, so please take that into consideration when you read this.

When I was a child, my mom worried because I was so thin. The doctor told her not to worry about it, and that when I stopped growing up, I would start growing wide. My mom didn't listen and made me take a tonic every day, anyway. So, here I am now.... 64 years old... and I've been fighting to control my weight most of my adult life.

I have great hopes for this program, and am seeing some progress already.

So... now to read more of your posts...
