You bet! Reading it for the second time and getting so much more out of it because I have finally fine-tuned my eating and I feel wonderfully balanced. Couldn't say that before. Once I start losing more wt. I intend to get into the exercises more.
Just the little exercise I have been getting makes me feel alive. I didn't do much exercising in my life and am surprised it feels so nice. I laid back on my bed afterward and definitely felt like all my insides were working better. I will keep this up. My goal is to LOVE it and do it at least 5 days a week.

Good quotes/reminders Gloria. Yes I've read The Spark and wish I had read it before I joined. I read it over 2 years after joining Spark People.com and would have found the book more exciting if it didn't contain so much of what we have learned. However, it is a good book and I see it all over in bookstores now.
Since we are about exercising, I thought I'd post these excerpts from the book, The Spark, for those who haven't already read it and to refresh it for those who have.
"....we know that exercise is one of the most powerful aspects of a healthy lifestyle. Besides being a potent weight-loss tool, it is a real tonic for every aspect of your life - a booster of strength, health, and spirit that wakes you up and makes you feel more focused and alive ....exercise done consistently will change your life, even if it is short workouts ....exercise is one of the most powerful elements of this program, given its ability to change your weight, mood, energy level, productivity level, and sleep, even what you can accomplish in your life ...."
