SONNI955,welcome to the team and wishing you much success with your goals.............blessings and hugs........lita


“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

Welcome & congrats! I find that changing one thing a week helps me not become overwhelmed. It gives me time to get used to the necessary adjustments. emoticon

Welcome to our team!

You have come to the right place to find support on your fitness adventure. Spark involves a change in consciousness. You are not dieting--you are becoming more fit.

The following article, called "Mind Over Body," has been very helpful for me in dealing with my weight loss issues. It is written by Dean Anderson, who is a Spark Resident Expert and has himself shed over 100 pounds. The article presents a 10-step program to discover your roadblocks to fitness and create a plan to deal with them. Here is the link to the article:

Co-Leader, Dealing with Depression Team

"When I say it’s you I like, I’m talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed.” Mr. Rogers

All RIGHT! Another SOCIAL WORKER! Kindred spirit & all...! I'm a clinical social worker with one full-time job in the day and part-time private practice in the evenings and lunch hours....whew, time is DEFINITELY TIGHT!

Although I'll admit to recently fallen off the morning workout routine wagon, I've recently reclaimed this and I think it is absolutely the BEST way to get those workkouts in!

The OTHER thing I do is to walk, jog or Nordic Walk between my daytime and night time work.

Another tip? Big-batch cooking on weekends so that I'm all stocked up with healthy choices through the week which are quick & easy to grab 'n go and still make healthy choices.

Great to see you jumping into our message boards! Keep coming back and posting your thoughts, trials, tribs and SUCCESSES to get the very MOST from your SparkTeam!

Do Not Expect Perfection, and Do Not Sit in Silence

To eat is a necessity.
To eat intelligently is an art.

PEACE- it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still BE CALM IN YOUR HEART.

Hi Everyone! I live in Saskatoon Saskatchewan and I've just finished a 4 year degree in Social Work. In my case, with 4 years of studies came 4 years worth of excess weight. I'm starting a new job in January and I'm having trouble reconciling being a single mom, working, cooking, and exercising. I'd like to know how some of you have incorporated everything into a similar lifestyle? I'm almost in a panic mode realizing that if I couldn't lose weight while a student (with more free time) how am I going to manage my health with considerably less time to spare. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
