and good luck! Make sure you read her poem today (Indy that is), it is awesome!
"The world is one country and mankind its citizens" one of the many truths spoken by Baha'u'llah and "Love is the light that guideth in darkness, the living link that uniteth God with man, that assureth the progress of every illumined soul."
Choosing the behavior is choosing the consequences OR the rewards. rewards like being able to play with the kids and gkids without getting out of breath or totally worn out or going out dancing and being able to dance for hours. rewards are all different for all of us .. your choice.
Welcome to the team! I think Beth is amazing and look forward to seeing what she posts next. If I need a little motivation, I look at her page and blogs. It's all you need for those moments of weakness.
I am so inspired by Indygirl's posts on Sparkpeople's daily email that I decided to join the team:) I have been on and off again with my participation with Sparkpeople, and need some encouragement to reach my goal. 10 years ago I weighed 264#. I lost 80# but couldn't seem to keep going. In the past 10 years I have been between 180# and 220#, up and down. I am at 191 now, and need to get serious and reach my goal of 140#. So... 51# to goal. Indygirl really spoke to me with with this: "Be strong, yet soft. Remember there is no wagon to fall off of anymore - this is a lifestyle. There is only the journey. Work with it. Learn from it."
I think about that alot because in desperation I will think about doing something drastic to loose weight in a hurry and then remember that I promised myself I would never do that again.
I am 59 years old, married, mother of 4, grandmother to 9 and work part time with our family business in the office. I am a retired high school health teacher (ironic that I have weight issues.). I plan on setting some goals today, but have to think about them right now.
