VSBURG - Welcome to the team.

First Free Lesson: "I plan to reset my goal WHEN I reach the first goal."

"I plan to reset my goal if (IF?) I reach the first goal."

You CAN and WILL reach your first goal, your second goal, third goal and fourth goal. We can guarantee it if you just do one simple thing, OK - two. Walk two minutes longer than you thought you could, and leave some food on your plate at every meal.

OK! Three. Keep us posted on what you are doing and how you are feeling, ex. (Lost one pound this week and I worked so hard. I feel so bad and depressed).

If you want to know how to deal with Depression, I invite you to send me an email. I was one of the six original members of the Spark team "Dealing with Depression" and now the team has about 600,000 members or more. I am a Depression Survivor. That doesn't mean it has been cured, but I have survived and will continue to bite, scream and fight for the rest of my life if need be (the male members on my father's side live to an average age of 91 - my goal is 95!

This is a great team. Any one of us will understand if you say something like, "When I'm working to put new plants, veggies, anything growing into the ground, I can feel the stress and tension just draining out of my fingers". I can even feel my ears fall as my forehead relaxes.

WELCOME TO YA!

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.
Charles Stanley

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in

Hi, I started using this website about a month ago. it's been very challenging, but I guess I shouldn't be surprised since I've been trying to lost weight repeatedly since I was in college. I succeeded a few times. I know I eat for emotional reasons and I have continued to gain since the early 90's. I now need to lose at least 65 pounds. I set my first goal at 20 pounds to give me a goal that seemed possibly reachable. I plan to reset my goal if I reach the first goal. It's been very helpful to have a tracker that tells me my calorie, fat, etc intake, so I can make better decision. I'm having great difficult eating enough protein. I also am not a fan of many salads and vegetable. The recipe collection is very helpful as it gives me ideas for new foods and how to make them tasty. I'm still working to learn the website and hope to soon figure out how to do the friends part. I'm sooooo computer savy! lol
