    That would be the Biggest Loser Contest 15 that one of my teams is having. :D

    Thanks so much for the warm welcome and the friend add!

    I can only imagine your excitement towards being a grandmother! I know my mother was heartbroken to hear we were moving here. I still keep in touch via phone calls, e-mail, web cam, etc...but not always the same as being able to visit. Thankfully she has my brothers and all their kids to occupy her time.

    I look forward to getting to know you better as well. Thanks again!

    Sue - I joined SparkPeople in December and got a nice welcome from you. I stopped for a while and now I'm back! I want to lose about 15 lbs. I'm not a big person, so this is a lot for me. I walk my dogs twice a day for one mile each. Any helpful suggestions would be appreciated!

    emoticon Checking on you and wondering how you are doing.

    I'm reading the BECK DIET SOLUTION, which isn't a "diet" but she teaches how to THINK like a THIN person. (Got a copy from the library.) I recommend it to everyone. (We have a support team here at Sparks.)
    Walking for five minutes is better than walking for zero minutes. Exercise is essential even if I don't do very much at first. I can build up the amount that I do over time, but I have to start somewhere.
    Hunger is never an emergency. It is only mildly uncomfortable. I can tolerate it. It will come and go.
    I really do deserve credit for breaking old habits and it is essential for building my confidence. Once my confidence grows everything will become so much easier.
    If I want to lose weight permanently, I can't make exceptions. I'd rather be thinner. I can't overeat on week-ends or any other time.
    I have to develop the habit of eating every bite slowly, while sitting down, so I can fully enjoy it. It is worth developing this habit, so that I can have a lifetime of being thinner.
    I'm not going to let any minor setback ruin everything I've accomplished. One mistake dosn't ruin my diet, but falling back into old habits will.
    I will recommit to my diet right here, right now!
    Exercise is not negotiable for good health. It needs to be a daily lifetime habit and I need to make it so. The hardest part is getting started. I'll feel so much better when I'm done. So get started!
    OH WELL! I'm going to ignore this craving. I'm going to do something and let it subside. I'm turning my attention to something else, like exercise.

    Sue, I'll say one thing about this that's truly sincere. So many people from this awesome community are right there for me almost immediately to offer advice, non judgemental-support and even seen through the fact that I'm my worst enemy by beating myself up for failing.
    But, for some reason when I saw your post come it really meant a lot. I had the feeling that you didn't like me so I've avoided the Fibro group. I'm kind of swelf-concious of posting on it. And it's one of the groups I need the most.
    Thank you so so much for your support.
