You Are Not Alone

I find the help and support the sparks people diet to be the best I have been on. I find that when I feel that I am alone that is when I do the most damage to my healthy eating plan.

You Are Not Just a Number On the Scale

Ease the Stress

Stress can cause us to want to give up, especially when it's caused by things going wrong. Take a few minutes to ease your stress: listen to music, read, walk, just relax. When you have less stress, it's easier to make good decisions.

Develop new skills and capabilities to round out mind and body

Find a special goal that will help to make your life more enriched. And then work towards it two or three times a week - even for just a few minutes each if that is all the time you have. Examples: Learn a language, learn to crochet, learn to play a musical instrument. Build rich diverse skills.

Schedule yourself first!

Make "YOU" the priority for the week. Before you make any commitments schedule "YOU" time - whether its exercise, meditation or journaling - give yourself the time to do the things you need to be successful for your goal. Then fit in the other stuff as best as you can.

As you lose weight be sure to have clothes that fit rather than baggy stuff. You'll feel better about yourself.
