Don't have a superminded ego and think "It can never happen to me." Always keep your health in check and visit your doctor regularly.

It saved my life from cancer by going to my physicals.

Whatever you ask for in prayer,
believe that you have received it,
and it will be yours. (NIV)
Mark 11:24


I only take one day at a time, and not worry about the past. Right now is what is important.


One person said to me, "if you don't try, you have lost nothing, but if you do try, then you have gained confidence to do better"

Don't follow the Crowd. The Majority isn't always right. Keep your eyes on your Goal.

Ask, and it shall be given to you;
Seek, and you shall find;
Knock, and it shall be opened unto you: Matthew 7:7

Now the Beroeans were more noble minded than those in Thessalonica, for they recieved the word with the greatest eagerness of mind, carefully examining the Scriptures daily as to whether these things were so. Act 17:11

The last few times I've had my BP checked, it's been up & I don't know why. I'm exercising a little less, but everything else is basically the same. Other than financial worries, I'm not under a lot of stress. I'm getting together with the "girls" once or twice a week to help me relax & laugh.

I Just want to say that I have been encouraged just reading these posts! I am 49 and considered obese by the numbers. I think the numbers are a little out of whack. I am definitely overweight and out of shape. Started 5 weeks ago on SparkPeople and have lost 10lbs. This system is keeping me going as well as all the other wonderful people out there traveling the same path.
Keep up the good work and for those struggling- you can do it!


Each day is new!

Thank you for the encouraging letter. I'm glad you have gotten back on track! You already know you can do it so this time around will be easier for you. You can see the reward from past
experience.
Right now I have a lot on my plate...new grandchild and a sister about to pass away. I seem
to be an emotional eater. Will try and track food and stay on track.
I am trying to walk 10,000 steps a day. I did it before and lost so I know the exercise is what makes the difference with me.
We'll just try and keep each other motivated!
Have a blessed day....

Good for you loosing 50 lb.! I am just starting out and I am totally confused but am
working my way through. I bought the Spark book and also the cookbook so hopefully this
will help me.
I am 74 years old with three sons and ten grandchildren. I am in good health with the exception of high blood pressure and high
cholesterol which I am sure is due to overweight. I would like to loose 40 lb.
Thank you for your encouragement.

God is eagerly waiting for the chance to answer your prayers and fulfill your dreams, just as he always has. But he can't if you don't pray, and he can't if you don't dream. In short, he can't if you don't believe. ― Jeffrey R. Holland

cut the negative people from your life and embrace the positive ones

Woke up late today, and I still feel the sting of the pain.
But I brushed my teeth anyway, got dressed through the mess and put a smile on my face.
I got a little bit stronger.

"your happiness has been...and always will be... right inside yourself"

My morning began with an email from Simple Truths. I enjoy reading excerpts from their motivational books and watching the DVDs that go along with their books. The one today had to do with happiness. Now this evening I read a blog that was part of a SP link to Tiny Buddha it too was about being happy. I felt both of these were aimed directly at me.

Quote by the late Zig Ziegler: when people tell me, "Zig motivation never lasts". "I tell them, bathing doesn't either that's why I recommend it daily". Myfavoritemotivationalquote

so true!

"The voice in your head that says you can't do this is a liar"

"To be nobody but yourself - in a world which is doing it's best,night and day,to make you everybody else - means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting." -EE Cummings-

�It isn't what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about it.�
