Hi! My name is Moni and welcome to my SparkPage!!! After my second son was born, my weight was out of control. One day reading an article in a Woman's magazine there was a write-up on SparkPeople. I logged on but did not really work the program. Well one day I was fed up with being fed-up and started working the program. My heaviest weight was well over 275 lbs. At first I would drink water. Then I worked on eating fruits and veggies. I would do 10 mins of exercise daily and now I am up to 60 mins of activity. I also sign up for 5K races during the season!!! From a Couch Potato to Walk/Jogging 5Ks!!! I know I still have more work to do but I love the way I feel!! I love that I have energy and I love that I have a smile on my face from ear to ear. If I can do it - so can you. I am working on the new me one baby step at a time. So join me on this awesome journey. You won't regret it!! Take care of yourself, Hugs, Moni :-)

    emoticon emoticon emoticon Six Terrific Truths about Time emoticon emoticon emoticon

    First: Nobody can manage time. But you can manage those things that
    take up your time.

    Second: Time is expensive. As a matter of fact, 80% of our day is spent
    on those things or those people that only bring us 2% of our results.

    Third: Time is perishable. It cannot be saved for later use.

    Fourth: Time is measurable. Everybody has the same amount of time..
    Pauper or King. It is not how much time you have; it is how much you use.

    Fifth: Time is irreplaceable. We can never take back time once it is gone.

    Sixth: Time is a priority. You have enough time for anything in the world,
    so long as it ranks high enough among your priorities.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Remember: Time is seconds; seconds are minutes; minutes are hours;
    hours are days; days are years and years are your lifetime!

    I firmly believe in small gestures:
    Pay for someone's coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind
    even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball
    down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are—
    particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate it.
    I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, but the irony
    is that almost everytime you make them feel better, you feel better about yourself.
    For a moment, life suddenly feels lighter, a bit like Gene Kelly dancing in the rain.”

    A smile costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who receive without
    making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment,
    but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
    None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without it
    and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it.
    Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen,
    for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away.
    Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours,
    as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.
