Dear MOONCHILDISME, I can relate so well with your feelings. I had been on this team from way back, but medical problems in the family and depression has kept me from posting most of the time.

I will be 71 in Dec, but feel 20. I try as hard as I can to at least journal my meals as much as I can. and keep on keeping on. It's hard, but worth it. Spark People is the ONLY program that works for me and all my Drs have given me thumbs up throughout the years.

Hi Astria. Hope all is well with you.

Do everything with love and harm none.

FreeOak.

I've gottta share a emoticon : I lost 3 pounds this week! I know that's a little more than our goal, but it's been a slow start (this makes 6 1/2 pounds in 6 weeks), so I'm happy!

Hi all,

Nothing like making last minute plans, right?

If you live in the area, I just wanted to invite you to join me tomorrow MORNING, Saturday, April 30th, for a walk along the Esplanade on the Merrimack River, Pawtucket Boulevard in beautiful Lowell, Massachusetts.

For anyone who may be interested, we'll be meeting at 9:00 a.m. across from the Heritage Ice Cream stand next to the beach parking lot.

I shall be wearing an identifying tag, or shirt, so you will know who I am.

Bring a loved one, bring your dog, push a carriage, just hope to see you there.

I am currently leading several teams & find that it can be QUITE overwhelming & I can't seem to get ANYONE on ANY of the teams to do ANYTHING. I think that's why I was backing off from everything. It can be QUITE frustrating to say the least.

If you should decide to go ahead & start a new team, I sincerely wish you the best with it.

I have 2 teams currently. I have a Vegan team and a team devoted to weight loss with mental health issues.

I'm thinking about starting a new Pagan team. I really am on the fence with this one. I've been thinking about it for awhile.

What do you think? We have a number of them already, however some are more active than others. I want to keep my teams all active. I spend a lot of time on my teams and it would be a major commitment for me to have 3 teams.

I would like to remind all PaganPlace members that we have Challenge going on all or most of the year. Members of the Challenge track their weight, strength work, cardio work, and support of others, and get points for each of these things -- plus, if your daily total points exceeds a certain amount (it might change between Challenges, so I won't state the figure, but it's LOW), you also get to count your SP login spin points.

We have just completed our Compact by Candlemas Challenge, and it was a sad time for most of us in fitness terms, but we do not give up! Buff By Beltane 2011 is ON!

If you'd like to join us in this Challenge, please look down the list of topics; the Challenge group is right there. If you'd like the spreadsheet I have pre-programmed to do everything except enter your points for you, to track your Challenge points, send me an email at zaivalananda@gmail.com and I'll get it right to you!

Hugs,
Moss

I overcame my spiritual obesity, now for the physical!

Hello Everyone :)

I've returned to spark after I think about 7-8months and just wanted to say hello and good luck to everyone. Since graduating last June I've gained a dress size (now a UK 10-12 instead of 8-10, which I think is a US 4-6) and about 14lbs :( . I've now joined up to my local gym and I'm hoping to get my fitness back and get back in to shape by June so I can do a 10k (and look good in a bikini!).

I hope all of you keep up your motivation & achieve your goals. Bright blessings,

Beth xx

Sticks & stones may break my bones, but whips & chains excite me.

Good morning dear ones!

My huddle comment this morning was "Promise yourself to..." now fill in the blank! I know I am probably being repetitive but anything that is pertinent to you, your beliefs, your way of life, your lifestyle changes, your hopes & dreams, WHATEVER life means to you & what you want out of it, now is the time to COMMIT to them.
Blessing dear friends!

"Starting TODAY...think, plan...THEN DO!!!"

I borrowed that message from one of my SP friends.

It's one thing to talk about what you want to do but completely different to put it into action.

OBSTACLES!

Do you let them stand in your way, or do you use them to your advantage?

Don't let them control you. OVERPOWER these OBSTACLES and put them to good use. They can ultimately become your best tool, IF you allow it!

Have an OUTSTANDING day today!

emoticon For me, I am both. Being human, I am far from perfect and I do have my ups and downs. It just depends on what nerve is pushed. My motto is "I am weird and proud of it!" I've got all the faults everyone else has, and accept them. If I can fix something I've done wrong, I will accept responsibility for my fault, and try to right it.

Are you a pessimist or an OPTIMIST? Do you constantly hear yourself saying, "Oh, I can't do that!" or, do you find yourself saying, "I know it may be tough, but I can get this done. I can do it"?

Now is the time to make a conscious effort to start thinking more positively!!

Have a Glorious day!!

The holiday seasons are difficult for me from the time I was born 68 yrs and 24 days ago. This year is particularly difficult.

We had a quiet Samhain. T-day was unusually joyful and spent with our beautiful daughter and her handsome husband and a wonderful friend of theirs and one of the kids.

It appears, though, I am becoming a bit agoraphobic. I've been forcing myself to, at least, keep in touch with our neighbors.

I have put on weight after that delicious T-day meal, but I know I will be able to conquor it.

With your permission, I am asking for some positive,
strengthening, healing, prayers and energies for both my husband and for me. Also for my computer problems emoticon

In the name of the God(dess)
HARM NONE
BLESSED BE TO EACH OF YOU

PRACTICE makes PERFECT, or so they say, but we are not striving for PERFECTION; however, with PRACTICE we shall go from concentrated effort, to new, healthy habits. Our lifestyle will gradually change and become second nature to us. For we shall have transformed and PERFECTED a new thought PATTERN!

Hoping everyone has a simply PERFECT day & week!!

Thanks for the encouragement, Lydia!
By the way, I LOVE your name. That was what I almost named my daughter. She would have been Lydia Reed Cook, but my former husband did not like the name even though the Reed was his mother's middle name. I personally thought it sounded VERY classy.

Good Saturday to you as well. I was up late so I am just now greeting the day. It's 66 and cloudy but the sun is peeking thru and the clouds are the white fluffy kind.

RubyClaire, I do think you should put you pep talks together in a blog. You could just recycle them as announcements on the group page.

This has been GREAT fun, but for now is the last of my "DICTIONARY" analogies, BUT, there shall be more advice forthwith.

Did I ever tell you that my "advice column" started out because I was trying to give myself little pep talks? I'm so glad it has also worked with helping others out as well. Maybe I should make them into little blogs. What do you think?

SummerWitch, I'm glad you liked my "comment". I started writing to help out ME, but now see that it is helping MANY!
Enjoy!!

Hello emoticon everyone!!

Did you know that by XEROXING your vision board, menus & exercises, then placing them strategically around your home will give you more incentive than having them posted in only one place?

Have a wonderful day!!

My son loves it when I do crunches because I do them in the living room, which is his space to play and he climbs on my tummy and laughs! A few extra pounds there just means I have to work harder which means I burn more faster!

GREAT idea, BurningEmber!

And good job with getting your exercise in no matter if it was morning or night. I tend to do mine when I get home from work or early evening. Whatever works for you.

SpiritualBear, I too am one busy pagan mama. One tip I would like to share with you that has worked well for me in my busy life is trying to fit in spiritual and physical activity in little bits throughout the day. My favorite way to do this is yoga. I felt silly at first, feeding the baby in the high chair while holding a Warrior pose between bites (he's a slow eater:) but it helps me to feel centered and it makes a difference. I'm also fond of doing squats while cooking or doing dishes.

Your motivation last night to get moving though it was night is motivating me this morning. Thank you, and happy belated birthday emoticon

Hi everyone! I hope everyone had a great Samhain this past weekend! I know I did! I had been looking forward to it for a long time since it was my son's first trick-or-treating. He's only ten months but we took him out with some friends just for the experience. The night felt wonderful! Being out and about, walking with the spirits I know were around that night.

I took yesterday (November 1st) off from doing anything cleaning or exercise wise. It was my birthday and I chose to enjoy the day by doing nothing! For the first time I had a lazy day and felt good about it!

Though I did check the scale recently and discovered in the past week I have gained 5 lbs from a lack of physical movement so it's time to get off my butt and get myself back into gear to taking care of my health again. Being diabetic who only got out of the hospital a month ago due to complications from me not taking care of my diabetes well enough I know how important it is for me to be healthy and take care of myself.

Today I had some great moments feeling very spiritual and that feeling motivated me to want to get some exercise in today. I know that I should be exercising in the morning rather than at night but I am getting my butt off this computer and getting some exercise in before bed tonight. I don't want to wait for tomorrow, I want to start now!

I hope everyone else is having a great start to this new month!!

Hi, everyone. I'm new to this group, but not new to weight loss OR paganism.

My path is what keeps me centered and balanced as I move through life. It is something I reflect on in a very natural sense, it's an integrated part of me. I've been doing this awhile.

I will share some of the things I've done, magically speaking, to help me focus on my goals.

I have a little piece of tiger's eye that I charged at the end of a particularly motivated day, when spirits were high, I had noted progress, and had exercised and just plain felt GOOD. I keep it on me, and when I'm feeling down I may pull it out and focus for a minute, reconnecting with that energy to help stay on track TODAY.

I've started adding fresh herbs as garnish to meals, I particularly love Basil and fresh Sage...contemplating on what they mean to me in a magical sense before eating, as I chop them I envision the weight melting off as I know the meal I'm about to eat is healthy. Weight loss is a great time to hone your kitchen witchery skills. Cinnamon is also, as I'm sure most know, a spice reputed to boost metabolism, and I've always associated it with success and fire, so that adds up to a wonderful combination for me. In a mundane sense, the more flavorful a meal is I find it's easier to be satisfied with an a smaller portion.

I really love reading everyone else's pagan focus on weight loss. I find a community spirit to be a great motivator as well

Boy, is it easy to gain weight. I was 146 pounds...down from 237.7 pounds. It took me way over 2 1/2 yrs to lose it.

Well, this past year I've had 3 surgeries and the surgeons gave me stern warnings not to exercise, lift things, nor to do anything that would raise my blood pressure.

I've had 8 major falls this year involving my head, too, (Balance probs). Plus, I lost my computer and could not get on to SparkPeople for awhile. SP is very important in my life. And, I did emotionally eat when all this happened.

My family and friends are supportive.

Well, I'd gained 11 3/4 pounds to 157.7 pounds.
I have been healing and pushing the buttons. Yes, I end up in pain, but I do know the pain is not going to kill me, and the DRs have given me meds for the pain. Pain doesn't scare me as much as it once did. I still get a bit teary and down, though emoticon .

This morning, I am down to 151.7 pounds. It is going slowly, but it's OK. I've got my whole life left to keep losing.

I am keeping the 146 pounds on my ticker for inspiration that I did it and can do it again. I've gone from a size 40WP to a size 14WP.

SparkPeople is the only thing that keeps me going.
Thank you so much SP. ALL MY DOCTORS HAVE GIVEN YOU 3 THUMBS UP FOR YOUR SITE AND HAND OUT THE CARDS I'VE GIVEN THEM.

Hi, well, I did have nose surgery. I was surprised at how little recovery pain there was. Tylenol extra-strength was all I needed.

Hubby and I had CT scans and MRIs, they both show we have what could be brain tumors, they are not too sure. In January, they will do more MRIs on the two of us to see if there has been a change.

Please send positive energies our way, with your permission, we will do the same for you.

Love hugs and ladybugs.

Hi KMG, this isn't something that I've been able to find a shortcut to, but I recommend meditation and long walks.
A good scent to include in any magickal working for weight loss is coffee, whether or not you drink it, try brewing some, or including a few grounds in your incense.

The mighty oak was once just a little nut that stood its ground.
