When you've eaten too much and you can't write it down,
And you feel like the biggest failure in town.
When you want to give up just because you gave in,
And forget all about being healthy and thin.
So what! You went over your points a bit,
It's your next move that don't you quit!

It's a moment of truth, it's an attitude change.
It's learning the skills to get back in your range.
It's telling yourself, "You've done great up till now.
You can take on this challenge and beat it somehow."
It's part of your journey toward reaching your goal.
You're still gonna make it, just stay in control.

To stumble and fall is not a disgrace
If you summon the will to get back in the race.
But, often the strugglers, when losing their grip,
Just throw in the towel and continue to slip.
And learn too late when the damage is done,
That the race wasn't over...they still could have won.

Lifestyle change can be awkward and slow,
But facing each challenge will help you grow.
Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint in a cloud of doubt.
When you're pushing to the brink, just refuse to submit,
If you bite it, you write it...but DON'T YOU QUIT!

You Said That I Wasn't Pretty
So I Just Believed You
And You Said That I Wasn't Special
So I Lived That Way
With Critical Gazes And Brutal Amazement
And How My Reflection Could Be So Imperfect
With All Of My Blemishes, How Could Somebody Want Me?
But God Loves Ugly
He doesn't see the way I see
Oh, God takes ugly
and turns it into something that is beautiful
apparently I'm beautiful

    Hi! My name is Aly (BellaSoccerMom). Hope you don't mind the friend add before I've communicated with you. I saw your SP page, and thought you would be great to get to know. My journey towards real achievements is just starting and I figure the more we all connect the easier it will be for everyone.

    Take Care,

    Hey we can help you watch weight right here. I will be glad to do a weekly weigh in with you. I too have been to weight watchers and have the stuff. The combination of fats proteins and carbs like here on Sparks has worked for me. I have lost 15 pounds since I started. You are very proud and this group is what I was looking to find. emoticon

    I think you are very courageous and a new start is great. Why don't you follow the SP meal plan and it won't cost you anything. I have tried WW and you are right not alot of people have the money to do it.
    Welcome back and Hold your head up High. You are a Survivor!!!! emoticon emoticon
