The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That's the day we truly grow up.

emoticon RHEADANIELLE and emoticon to SparkPeople and the team...Nice to have you on the journey to a healthier lifestyle and I wish you much success reaching your goals.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

Go little Turtle Go!

Welcome to SparkPeople and to our Team, Carmen. A lot of our members stumble across this site by googling Nutrition/weightloss etc. I feel it is pretty much the best stumble a person can have:-)

Don't try to rush everything at once - just gradual changes at a time are best because then you have a much greater chance of it staying with you for life. It is really good, too, that you are doing this now while your children are young, because you are setting them up for a healthy life's journey, too.

If you have any queries just ask - there is always someone here 24/7, so a response will never be far away. It is best if you keep in regular contact via posts, too, because it helps you to remain motivated and on course.

Don't get frustrated if you have the occasional blip - everyone does - just pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start again. Before you know it you will be well on your way, and with a really nice, new wardrobe! Just don't do what I did - I had lost a lot of weight, and altho' I knew my clothes were quite baggy, I didn't realise how much "too baggy" they were until I went to the Dietician one day. I stood up for her to measure my waist, and my trou (tailored type with side zip and button) fell down - without any help from us! I was fortunate that I was there, in private and not out on the street. emoticon

I promptly went out and got some new clothes.

We look forward to seeing you around the boards.

Take Care,
Kris

Depression is anger without the motivation.

I think depression runs rampant in society today because we are all so obsessed with making a living instead of living our lives.

Live your dreams, it's not as hard as it may seem...On your hopes you must lean...From your fears you have to wean yourself.

Welcome Carmen to a very supportive team. Make sure you use all of sparks resources such as the calorie counter and the exercise video's. You will soon find out where everything is by playing around with the site. And you can always post your questions for advice and opinions. Even just to vent. Take Care Denise

Had a surgery in July. The weight has been creeping up on me since then. Think I was nervous about exercising. Not an excuse. Seriously was worried about damaging myself. Lost 100lbs back in 2009....20lbs back in past 3 1/2 months. Gotta get active....

My name is Carmen I have 2 little girls (6/9) all my like I have been over weigh. I googled and found this site and I think it is awesome so I am going to give this a shot, I feel confident that I can do this now because this site tells me what to do and what to eat. I don't have to figure anything out I just have to follow their instruction.

thank you for reading my intro.

Our dreams can be our reality
