So here I am again, after slacking off and ignoring my responsibility for 3 years. How did I do on my own without Spark People? Not good! In fact, as you would guess, I gained about 30 pounds!

Now I've once again had enough and am giving it another shot.

I have invested in a personal trainer that I will take seriously and I have to put this first before anything else. Everyone and everything else is going to have to step aside and become a lesser priority.

One good spot of good news to report: I did quit smoking!!!! It will be 2 years being a nonsmoker on October 30th! I am SO GLAD to be a nonsmoker now!

If anyone out there is listening, I hope you'll welcome me back and let me join your community again. I don't know if I can be here every day, but Spark People is definitely part of my strategy going forward!

    Hi and welcome back to Spark People where you are welcomed with open arms. CONGRATULATIONS on quitting smoking!! That is AWESOME!!! I know it hasn't been easy as my DH is working on quitting and it is really difficult for him.
    Start each day with a positive thought for the day. Reading and reflecting on a inspirational thought or message before you start your day can put you in a positive frame of mind.
    Your thoughts determine whether you have a good day or a bad day. Fill your mind with positive ideas, suggestions, and thoughts. You will find it will change your attitude and changing your attitude can change your life.
    Sometimes just reading an inspirational quote or a short paragraph help one see the positive in a situation. Sometimes as your day progresses you just need to take a breakā€¦Take a mental break and read or think about a message of inspiration.
    If there is anything I can help you with, please let me know.
    Blessings and hugs,
