I woke early to walk...a win for me.
When I craved something sweet, I combined it with healthy eating and made a self crust gluten free pumpkin pie. Only 133 cal per 1/8 of the recipe, and it is actually half a vegetable. The win about this is that it is not empty calories, and especially that it is gluten free. The calories are actually less than 2 slices of my gluten free bread...........with no spread. I feel decadent.

If this was your last day, how would you spend it?

Doing the get back on track challenge has helped me to get back on track and now concentrating on staying on track.

Wanda and Mauri you are both doing great, Mauri WTG on the weight elimination.

Mauri...CONGRATULATIONS on being a winner! Awesome steps forward.

I too am finding that the Fill-a-meter challenge is helping me. It is once again becoming second nature to me to drink all my water each day. I've been doing well with the tracking also, except for yesterday as I wasn't sure of how many calories were is a couple of things that I ate, so I had to guess. Back on track though again this morning.

I would have to say that it is the Fill-a-meter challenge that is making me feel like I am winning. I haven't weighed myself as yet and not sure when I'm going to do that, but I'm feeling much better and that is what counts.

have a great day,
hugs,
Wanda

Everyone is doing such an awesome job with our Fill-A-Meter Challenge and sticking to behaviors that will help us reach our goal.

What makes you feel like you are WINNING today?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This morning as I looked for a Wednesday challenge, I noticed this one that we did in Sept 2012. When I opened it, one of the things that made me feel I was winning 13 months ago was to have put up a sign on my kitchen door that reminded me to eat healthy foods during our busiest season at the Foundation.

Reading that made me realize I am WINNING because this year I don't need a sign. As a result of my *Spark* Restart plan, I am just doing that naturally - with a few off days, but I'm doing it and seeing the results of my efforts with eliminating (as of this morning) 13 lbs since May 1st.

Indeed a WINNING WEDNESDAY for me!

Mauri...thank you for Winning Wednesday.

We get so caught up in "what we don't have" and forget to give thanks for all that "do have".

I am practicing the daily lessons in the book The Magic by Rhonda Byrne. Love how we can through very little effort turn our thinking around and learn to be grateful for all things. Doing these lessons have given me an added boost in my well-being.

Hugs,
Wanda

I have a "short" article to post on a site-Today I went to the library and found the information needed. I have begun an outline. This is a winning situation for me because taking action
helps to relieve the stress.

I purchased some positive books for myself and my mother. This is a winning situation for me
because she likes the author and it will make a good birthday present for her to enjoy. I also win
because looking at the positive side of life is what I am working on currently.

For me, tracking my food is a winning strategy. It keeps me accountable and really helps me feeling better about myself!

Mauri as I was thinking about what to put in the huddle this morning, it's funny I was thinking winning Wednesday or we can all be winners and I come here and what do I see Winning Wednesday. Great challenge.

I am working on making exercise a consistent part of my life. I like to get to the gym early in the morning but if there is something going on and I can't make it in the morning, I need to work it in later in the day, the time of day doesn't really matter, it's still exercise. So that makes it a win, win situation.

Sometimes we can get too focused on the weight loss, so am trying to reset my focus on healthy, if I do the healthy things the other will follow. Win.

Hugs,
Shirl

After watching Amie Copeland, the young woman who lost her 4 limbs to a viral infection, define herself by what she has and not by what she has lost, I think we need to acknowledge what winning strategies we are doing to help us along our journey.

For me:
1. As I enter the busiest part of my work season (only 4 days off this month), I have posted a reminder on my kitchen door that I can read each morning and night to be aware of what i am choosing to eat. Last year I completely went off into just grabbing something with no thought. A WIN!

2. Though I have very little time for any length of time, I am fitting it movement whenever I can - walking around the Hope Bus, cleaning it, lifting boxes. I WIN!
