Hey All! I hope the new year is treating you well!

My husband and I have just started the 17 Day Diet- a few coworkers have tried this and are seeing some successful results! I am still tracking all my food and exercise here which I think is helping this diet plan become more successful! The first cycle is a little challenging because I had to say good bye to some of my favorite foods! But they will be back in later cycles, but in better portion sizes :)

On top of this- my school district is doing a Biggest Loser Challenge between all the schools and I am hoping this year our school comes out on top! We are almost through week one of the challenge!

I am looking forward to my first weigh in on Monday! Hopefully I will see a nice solid loss! I am not as hungry and I am still going strong, getting a lot of walking and moving in!!!

YAY! Have a great weekend all!

Hello All!!!

I hope everyone has had a restful holiday season! I have been trying to avoid all the goodies I made- by giving them away, however, I keep getting more! Hopefully taking more to work next week will be a good use of them ;) I have spent most of the break "spring" cleaning- This is the first time in a long time that lots of rooms have just gotten a good overhaul cleaning, rearranging, etc. Hopefully this will help!

Good luck in the rest of this year! Can't wait to see all our resolutions soon!!!!

Hi, Well we just got home from our DD and the Thanksgiving weekend. I am all turkied out.
I did not over eat so I hopefully did not gain any weight. Will find out on Friday.
Glad to see a few of us old Sparkers on this site.

I've been keeping very busy with school. I have been spending long hours there since the start of the year. I feel like I have not been working too well with weight. We are finally getting into the just right fall weather and I am hoping to take more advantage of it.

Hello, it's been a very long while...It seems as though I become motivated and it only lasts for a couple of weeks, maybe a month and then it's over! I could sure use this group again!

HEALTHY REFLECTIONS
It is the path of least resistance that makes rivers and men crooked.- B.J. Palmer, father of chiropractic

Struggling to find your voice

In the face of conflict we might be tempted to just go with the flow and not make waves. The path of least resistance is saying "yes" when you want to say "no" and that road is always paved with regrets and mistakes. While compromise is good and a necessary part of healthy relationships, no one should have to fully deny their feelings and remain voiceless while others dominate a situation. It might feel easier to nod your head and passively agree, but in the long run you are being cheated. While there might be a whole list of justifications and excuses for stepping off the path of your principles, staying true to yourself reaps countless more rewards than selling out to appease someone else. Reconcile today the negative passivity you have displayed in the past.

HEALTHY REFLECTIONS

If it is to be, it is up to me.- Author Unknown

Do you succumb to laziness?

We commonly procrastinate or put off an activity altogether by saying "It will get done eventually" or "Someone else will do it." Wrong! Being lazy and not taking responsibility are wastes of time. Often the power for change is within us, but without our efforts things would fail or go awry. You cannot rely on help from others, only what your own two hands accomplish on their own. Hard work is a habit that needs constant attention. But be mindful that you are giving your full effort to a project. Apply yourself, value your time, and don't squander it hoping for help.

Hello all!!!

My husband and I disappeared on a much needed vacation! Now we are getting back into the work routine- but the vacation and exercise we did was amazing! We even biked the Gettysburg Battlefields one morning- I definitely recommend that to anyone!!! It was awesome!

I hope all are doing well with their goals :)

My son and I have been working on eating better and exercising more. This weekend will probably not work out so good, because we are camping at this moment. Well you know how camping goes. My mom is with us and she doesn't walk so well. So we dont venture off to far. But maybe we can make a little hike anyhow.

I am glad to see there are some of you still around. I was going to quit the team, but I see that I am the only team leader and I just have not been doing that. Not sure what happened to the others. Maybe they were removed for lack of posting or just removed themselves. Keep coming back and I will, too.

emoticon I'm here also!

Just graduated from university and I've been on a real serious weight-loss mission since June 1st. I'm taking very, very long walks (about 10 miles/day) with my partner and I'm very determined to lose these pounds of mine. I have a goal to lose 41 lbs.

Now that I won't be sitting at my desk studying constantly and eating so many extra meals because of the very late hours I kept, I believe I can do this.

Glad to see others still here!! Go team!!! :) :)

I'm still here, too. I also met my goal, then 2 years ago went thru some deaths in the family, had MIL living with us for 4 months before passing. trying to meet her needs, work, and help take care of everything else had taken its toll. I am now back where i started and cant get motivated again. I dont exercise as much either & my back pain is back. It's not just my back, also have arthritis in my hips, knees, hands ... everything hurts. I know losing the weight & exercising will help because it did before. I just can't find my will power & motivation.

I spark every day & do some posting & keep looking for the team/group that will get me going again.

I am still here... it is a hit or miss when I am on the page; but I try to check in throughout.... right now we are finishing our state testing and have another 4 weeks of school left.... but I would love a challenge! Esp. since I am starting to become a lot of more active despite the horrid heat! I would love to get reinvolved: esp. since this is the only team I stay active with!

I have never completely left. I get emails and I read and respond sometimes. But staying on program has been the problem. I have been under stress with depression and that has not helped with eating or doing what I am suppose to do always. But in my thoughts I am still fighting to do the right thing.
