Hi and welcome. I feel we can change things if we try hard enough. I refuse to give up and accept things as they are. That is why I joined Sparks and why i go to curves to exercise. I watch what I eat and drink lots of water. We can do this and I am by no means young but am young at heart. Shirley

Welcome to the team. Yes, life happens but we are all here to change how let ot bring us into the future. This is the site to help you do it with success. Good luck and fun while you are on this new adventure.
It's not easy to turn things around. But you have to decide that you are worth the effort. And you are. You can buy all the things in the world to make you happy and it will never work and then you are just left with the debt. It seems like it goes from one fix to the other sometimes... eating to feel better, shopping to feel better, smoking or drinking to feel better. None of that works. So you just have to take charge. Wake up in the morning and decide that today you are going to take care of yourself. Today you are going to feel better by being healthy, eating right, moving more, doing active things YOU enjoy. Pep talk yourself every day... today will be a good day.
Never look down on anybody, unless you're helping them up.
It's not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived.

I agree totally that while you're not looking, life happens. But we can control how we live that life. This website is a great tool for helping you make simple lifestyle changes that will have huge results. As for all the other things life throws at you - my mantra is "don't sweat the small stuff." Cheers.

well obviously there is not that much wrong with your mind as that is a well formed introduction,but i know exactly where you are coming from even though most of it doesn´t apply to me yet but it is early days yet.what is your plan of action?how does it see out? oh by the way welcome.
I'm up to that age where most anything I do, about my weight, finances, and wrinkles just discourages me. I feel that at this point and time it is manditory that I take care of myself and not worry about the things that I can not change. Wrinkles for example: unless you have some kind of miracle happening, you are going to get some, same with weight, it just happens. you start out young with a clear face and a slim, trim bod then all of a sudden you get huge! For no good reason!! along with that comes weakness, not only in your joints and muscles, but your mind too. So thats where the finances come in........... You start looking for ways to feel good, look good and to be able comprehend all the above by buying Items that others sell. Hopefully we can join together and help each other get thru all of this and still come out smiling while we peer out of our expensive casket.!!! PLEASE join me, lets make this happen together. Thanks Gramivern
