Ray,

What you've shared is really great, motivating and all.

But I think we're going to need to set up a special Hall for you with candelabras, stained glass windows and a couple of large trees growing inside.

You're serious, and that's good. Honestly.

I just can't figure out how to be sarcastic to your posts. They totally disarm me.

YOU MAKE YOUR OWN OPPORTUNITIES


Your destiny isn't a matter of chance, it's a matter of choice.
It's not something you wait for, but rather something you pursue.

Don't wait for extraordinary opportunities. Seize common occasions and make them great.

Opportunities sometimes come disguised in the form of misfortune or temporary defeat.

Start where you are. You're at this moment standing right in the middle of opportunity.

Act on your dreams and you can have them.


2010 YourDailyMotivation.com

(as I'm raising my hand) how many have ever been given an opportunity in life to do something that would make a difference and change somebodys life?

How many get opportunities to change their social status or position in their jobs? I have

How many have been given an opportunity to make your lives better in some way by taking off daily pressures and actually being able to control how the outcome is going to turn out? I have

These are all great opportunities but consider this...

When you decided to make a lifestyle change... when you decided to lose weight... when you decided to exercise... when you decided to learn to eat right, you created an opportunity to change your way of life. This opportunity put you in charge! This opportunity gave you full control... right or wrong, should I or Shouldn't I... The whole thing... at your fingertips! It was then that you decided that now is the time to get healthy and to get fit! The opportunity gave you the chance to create a whole new you! The you that you wanted everyone to see and admire!

If you're still working into this lifestyle great job! You're doing fantastic. Don't let anyone set you back! Keep going... You can do it!

However...

If you've put it on hold and slid back into your old lifestyle I have 1 question for you... Why?

Through experience, I know that it's just as easy to create the new lifestyle as it is to stay the same as you have been. The only difference is that the new lifestyle lets your health improve, it lets your life improve and opens more doors to possibilities that didn't exist!

When I started my lifestyle change I couldn't do simple things like bending over and tying my shoes, I found it really difficult to get out of a chair or couch, I couldn't walk for any length of time,I got out of breath all the time, I couldn't walk stairs at all... These are just a few things I was facing when I started Sparkpeople and researching! Now I can do all those things and more!

I eat better, I look better and I'm enjoying family outings like a walk around the zoo (rather than being pushed in a wheelchair!) Well... you get the Idea!

This program really works! It's the best opportunity going right now and the best part is the friendships, the support, the information, the meal planning, the videos, the book, the extra medical information... etc AND IT'S FREE! FREE FOR THE TAKING! There's no reason why we shouldn't take advantage of this great opportunity and run with it!

Are you standing in the middle of a great Life Changing opportunity.. It's a resounding YES!

Should you take advantage of everything that Sparkpeople has to offer... Absolutely!

Don't let this Opportunity pass you by... Jump back on the bandwagon, You can do it! Make your recommitment to fitness and well-being... Recommit to eating right and feeling better! Do the research... Make it fun! Make it something that you look forward to daily! Change the exercises... make it something that you want to do!

I have decided to recommit to the cause because I haven't been making the progress that I should be making (and I have been progressing slowly)but I want to make the final push to my 200 pound weight goal!

I can no longer wait. I can no longer rely on what I did in the past... I have to keep going to a better future! I need to keep pushing! Change what I can, Research what I can... Do what I must... but I have to succeed! As Master Yoda says " Do or Do not... There is no try" I will do this... I will see it through and when I make it I want to see all of my Sparkfriends there with me... enjoying their accomplishments at the goal line!

The Opportunity is there... Take advantage of what's yours to take... Remember... You're worth it!
