I gave myself a seedling. Note with it: Not only do I need to get out and plant some flowers, I need to tend my goals like you would a seedling.

I chose a pair of tennis shoes. This symbolizes that I still have a walk ahead of me. I love my tennis shoes.
The message I put with the goodie is...
Note to self...keep going...if you stop now you will never get there.

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"

I chose a pedometer to symbolize my fitbit. It has really helped to open my eyes to my inactivity some days.

Gave myself an exercise bike. It has kept me exercising through aches and pains until I can do other things.

I gave myself a pair of workout shoes, because I am getting outside to walk now that the weather is more cooperative.

I gave myself a pedometer. Have been thinking about getting a real one for awhile. Want to see steps now and then try to add to them each day.

I gave myself a foam roller as I like the way I can do exercises with it and also use it on pressure points to relieve muscle pain.

I gave myself a set of gardening tools -- hoping that spring will arrive here someday and I'll be able to get out in the garden!

Thanks for the nice comments about the challenge, everyone -- I'm glad you're enjoying it !

I gave myself a pedometer to remind myself that I'm now wearing a fitbit and I'm trying to get up to 10000 steps per day.

Also, I agree with RISAMEANSLAUGH that this is an awesome thread. Thank you for this great month of challenges, Sandy. I am really enjoying these challenges because I was able to do them all so far and it has felt great to be successful at something because right now I'm not successful at losing more weight.

I will keep on trying but these challenges are motivating and all the positive posts are very encouraging.

Keep on rising to meet the challenges, everyone.


At the end of the day, be able to look back and say "I did my best today."

Gave myself "spices" because I am learning to use spices to enhance the flavor of my meals rather than salt!

I'm not losing weight...I'm getting rid of it! I have not intention of finding it again!

I gave myself a pedometer to represent the miles I walk/run on my treadmill

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose
"If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."
-General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

Give yourself a Spark Goodie that represents something that you are using as you work toward a healthier lifestyle (a jumprope? a pedometer? bananas?); tell us what you gave yourself.)

Still haven't found your Spark Page? Go to the Community tab in the above bar and then click on SparkPages. There should be a button to click in the upper right corner that will help you create your own page, or to view your Spark Page. Click on "edit my Spark Page" and be sure the box for "turn my page offline" is NOT checked -- this is found in "more options" in the upper right corner. The other boxes can be checked or not, according to your personal preference. There are various other ways to customize your page -- scroll down and you will find areas for entering information about yourself that will let other members get to know you a bit better. When you're done, be sure to click on the "Save Your Changes" button! You can always go back again and make more changes.

Now scroll down to near the bottom of your page and click on "Give *** a Spark Goodie" (*** stands for your own user name). You'll see a box that says how many SparkPoints you have to spend. Click on the various tabs -- fitness, food, home & electronics, etc -- and select a goodie that you have enough points for. Type a brief message to yourself and then click on "send goodie." You can use this same process on another member's Spark Page to send them a goodie!
