There is NO tomorrow...

If you' re just beginning...or you just messed up...don't wait til tomorrow, or next Monday, or next week...start with your very next meal, making small changes. Small changes add up to BIG weight loss!

On top of the World

I am so excited. My husband asked how much weight I had lost so far. When I told him, he said - I am really starting to see it. I really notice it in your legs and butt. YIPPEE!!! Best compliment I have had in a long time.

Make a commitment and make it public! (There's no backing out now!)

I'm running my first 10K in June and while I was at a training session to get ready, a local TV station was getting video for the news that evening. I knew a camera was near me but it was pretty brief (I thought I was just part of a crowd!) A couple of my neighbors saw me and now everyone knows!

Staying active on teams and challenges!

One of my biggest motivations is staying active on my team and participating regularly in the monthly challenge. I have a team called Challenge + Motivation = Weight Loss and the support and motivation that comes from the team is absoutley amazing! I dont know what I would do without this site!

"A PICTURE IS WORH A THOUSAND WORDS! Author Unknown (to me).

Blog Blog Blog Video Diary: more than a pastime. More than a hobby. The heart & soul of me. If I could I would blog daily. (Health issues prevent it.) What I can't say I can show. What I can't show I can sound out (w music) what I can't face I can see - through the eyes (comments) of SparkFriends!

Don't make diet so strict you can't stick to it

Try new ways of cooking-When talking about what you eat don't be negative by saying I had a little of this--but I didn't have that.
Don't play pity me , I'm on a diet. Instead say I had a fabulous salad with a really great piece of seasoned chicken and a great salad dressing-Be positive
