Melissa - I hope you write down what Chris said to you and keep it where you can see it. It is easy to fall back into negative thinking and that would be counter productive. Glad you have joined us. Keep on thinking positive and it won't be long until you are reaching your goals.

Hugs, Sunny

Melissa - HI, emoticon to our team and to SP!! So glad you found us.

Ok, now . . . . . . . I am SOOOOOO jealous you met Chris Powell - I just love him. He has an infectious smile and personality. And what wonderful and true statements he made to you. I've only been on this journey for two months and it can be done. Even when you don't want to or think you can't do it --- 10 minutes is a snap. You'll start feeling the energy start to pick up and the clothes start to fit a little differently. Slowly that 10 minutes will turn into 20 - 30 - 45 . . . . . . . . . . Pretty soon you'll be a Rock STAR!

Good luck to you on your journey with SP.

My name is Melissa and I am new to SparkPeople....Been doing it faithfully for a week now, but did not get on the computer till now! was recently blessed to meet Chris Powell from Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition. It was a meeting that was unexpected and he gave his time to me, sought me out, it was a God thing! He asked me one question that turned my heart around, finally. He asked me "Who are you, Melissa?" I replied, "I am mom, a fat, lazy mom"..with tears...He grabbed my shoulders and responded "Do you know what I see? You are a beautiful dancer, with A LOT of energy to burn up!"....I cried even harder! He talked with me for quite a while and two things he said (besides the above), have been written on my heart. One, he said, "You can do ANYTHING for 10 minutes, so I want you to exercise 6 days a week for 10 minutes, because YOU CAN DO IT!" 2nd, he said something that I still laugh at "Melissa, you are NOT FAT ENOUGH to be on EMWLE, if you wanted to be on the show, then you would have to gain weight, and I WILL NOT let you gain weight!" that was the FIRST time I have EVER been told I was not fat ENOUGH! Would love to make some new friends/support help here on SP!
