Pep Talk -

Some days, I just don't feel like getting out to exercise. I really have to give myself a good pep talk: "Now Margie, you know you will feel better afterward! You know consistency is the key to weight loss and good health!! It doesn't take that long... JUST DO IT!!" and I'm always glad I did!

Join a Spark Team!!!

I have tried to diet alone many times, and although many times I would lose some weight... I never had the motivation to keep going. I feel the success I have had THIS time is from finding a great Spark Team with likeminded people to push me to greater challenges and encourage me when it gets hard!

Be thankful for who you are! You are special - a one of a kind!!

We are each very special, and we too often look at ourselves too critically picking out things we don't like. Let's be positive and look at our natural gifts and special qualities and how we can use those to help and encourage others!

Menu Planning & Writing a Grocery List

If you want to stick to your diet, it is very important to plan a healthy menu, make a list, and stick to it when shopping. Stores are sure to put fattening and expensive treats on the end of an aisle and at eye level to get you to buy. Be sure to eat before you shop, to keep from impulse buying!
