    The flowers and blossoms are filling the air with the smells of Spring. This is the time to start preparing for the Summer. Are you ready to join a Challenge? The Biggest Loser Challenge is looking for members for it’s next Challenge starting the first week of June. The challenge consists of 11 Teams, that participate in 10 weeks of Nutritional and Fitness Challenges. These challenges can be modified to fit individual needs, allowing members of all abilities and dietary needs to participate.

    Here are some of the members comments written on a Survey Monkey poll:

    “It helps me stay focused on my goals. It also keeps things interesting and not boring.”

    “I find that the challenges make me be more cognizant of my food intake, better choices etc. The fitness ones encourage me to try new exercises and to keep doing exercises. I think there is a good possibility I wouldnt do as much if I didnt track it for challenges or tried to do better on challenges”

    “My leaders are all wonderful...they stay in touch with team members and do their best to keep us involved and feeling a part of the team.”

    “They motivate me to eat healthier and to be more active. “

    If you would like to be a member of this challenge you can copy and paste the the link below, or click on my username and leave me a message or click on the BLUE BIGGEST LOSER Icon on my page. Join the team and sign up for the next challenge on the Spring Waitlist thread.

    Note when using the link above you may have to drop the // or even the //www.

    While I was reading Spark articles today I came across this one! It was written as a
    emoticon 4th of July blog emoticon back in 2009 by Nancy Howard. I thought is was so good I just wanted to share it with you!

    "Nancy's “Bill of Rights to Healthy SparkLiving”

    "Thou shall release thyself from thy scale. Thou cannot and should not allow a machine to measure thy self-worth and value.

    Thou shalt accept the obstacles that are inevitable on this journey we call life.

    Thou shalt accept help and guidance from others more knowledgeable and experienced than thyself.

    Thou shalt never give up learning. Education is essential in order for us to change and grow. Don’t ever stop learning and don’t acquiesce to accepting anything as fact. Learn for yourself.

    Thou shalt not allow one off-track day to undo all the positives we have made in our lives. That one extra hot dog, the All-American food, is not going to undo all your hard work to date.

    Thou shalt accept the challenges in life in order to grow.

    Thou shalt never take for granted the health one has now.

    Thou shalt never underestimate the power of small changes.

    Thou shalt appreciate the freedom to live a life of joy and happiness, not one based on the size we wear or the number on the scale.

    Thou shalt thank SparkPeople for totally transforming my life."
    emoticon Enjoy another successful week as we inch toward Spring! emoticon

    emoticon Sometimes the strength within you
    is NOT a fiery flame for all to see.
    It is just a tiny spark that whispers ever so softly,
    "You've got this...keep going."
