welcome! The thought of the day that Sparked me... SparkPeople's Coach Tanya says: There is no magic eating plan, program, or product that is guaranteed to help you lose weight and keep it off. The plan that will work is the one you will follow.
Just don't be concerned if the initial loss slows down... it's better to lose it slow and keep it off than it is to keep up on a program that can't be sustained over the long run... or worse yet, that leads to a physical crisis! Good consistent work DOES pay off!
You're going to get all kinds of encouragement here, so feel free to vent, to cheer, to contribute...
Welcome aboard! Kathy
"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm! P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!
Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL
