Mamabearlicious I briefly saw the Tim Tebow commercial, my daughter and two of my grandchildren were here and I was talking to my granddaughter when I realized the commercial was on-so I missed most of it. I understand that there was a lot of protest over it, so it most likely was changed. I still commend him and his mother for putting it out there. I caught the end of the commercial as I was helping my grandson on the computer. Gotta love those grandkids!! I thought it was a pretty good game, we had a nice time with everyone who came over, and I even watched what I ate and how much. I very nice evening!

31-17 saints superbowl champs !!!
westiegal, i saw both the tim tebow commercial and the doritos of the guy faking his funeral. but i don't know if there was more than one of tim tebow, but the one i saw didn't have the abortion part, it just said go to a website for more info. i think because of so much protest they changed the commercial. i liked the commercial with betty white and abe vagoda for snickers. of course dh liked the go.daddy ones. i was disappoined there was only one clydsdale ad. my favorite superbowl ad ever was after 9/11 when the clydsdale went to ground zero and knelt down in memory of those lost there.

We're rooting for the Indianapolis Colts, only because they USED to be the Baltimore Colts and we're originally from Maryland!! However, I won't be too sad if the Saints win. I'm looking forward to the commercials. Tim Tebow is suppossed to be on one promoting pro life. It seems his mother was advised to abort him due to health issues. What a testimony! Also a church from LA entered a commercial to Dortios and if they win they get $1,000,000! Wouldn't that be wonderful! I heard that it won't air unless it wins. Apparently it takes place at a funeral and the man in the coffin staged his death to get time off of work to watch football, which he's doing in the coffin. Tongue in cheek type of thing. I hope they win! Everyone have fun!

So who is everyone cheering for??

I know the New Orleans Saints are playing because that's all that's been on the news here since it's there first ever time so I will root for them, but I am sorry to say I forgot who the other team was - you can tell I haven't watched this season since my son has been away at school-lol. In my defense I did track the Louisiana Tech football though. emoticon

I'm glad you could find something good out of this article after reading it before. I always find that when I go back to the start I can find new things to focus on. My "I" blog was kinda silly, but it made a point! LOL

Well I had to read this article this morning...with only one computer on the weekends(or when hubby is home) I only get it for a few hours in the am. But I read it and it is a wonderful article. My husband likes the fact I spark...he says it puts me into a better mood through the day.

Julie, your husband sounds a lot like mine. My DH loves to rib me about things like Spark points or getting a sticker at my Weight Watcher meeting, but it is all in fun. He is proud of my efforts and tells me that frequently. I really do depend on his support.

And you're right about spending your spare time taking care of yourself versus playing Conqueror Club!

Keep up the good work!

My husband teases me about "Sparking" all the time and calls me Sparky. You should have heard him telling my sister and her husband about it the other night. He had them cracking up, telling them about SparkGoodies and virtual trophies and stuff. ("Wow, don't YOU wish you had a SPARKGOODIE?" he said to my sis.) But it's good-natured and I know he likes to see me exercising and taking care of myself. I told him that at least SparkPeople is beneficial and motivating. My sister spends her spare time playing Conqueror Club, for pete's sake!

I'm very lucky that my husband supports my weight loss and exercise efforts. I worked out to the point of total fatigue today, but he helped clean the kitchen and cook dinner.

You are so right, Julie. The world will not come to a screeching halt because you took one hour to look after yourself!

This article was right on. I always used the excuse that I couldn't take the time to work out in the mornings because I had to homeschool my kids, but I started working out in June and just kept it up. I determined to MAKE time for myself regardless of whatever responsibilities or chores were awaiting me because I finally accepted that one hour was not going to cause everyone's world to cave in. If I feel better mentally and physically, it benefits everyone.

I do feel much more in control now and everyone in my family knows that I'm going to work out or take a walk and they just have to wait. It's GREAT!

I really enjoyed the article, Becky. I will choose to include "I" in my vocabulary. I have a lot of work to do on accepting personal responsibility, but I am going to do better.

How am I doing so far????

you picked the perfect article for us to read. i read it again today and it was just like reading it for the first time. everything he said is so true. we do need to put "I" in our thoughts and write them down. it makes us accountable. you do such a wonderful job picking out just the right things for us to read and exercises to do. and "I" say thanks for being such a motivator and great team leader.

Whatever works best for you. I find that I jump around, and back and forth a lot. It may not be an acceptable way, but it has worked for me. It helps sink things in better for me. I'm reading through the book and I'm on Chapter 8 right now.

I am always reading things and then jumping around. When I find something that hits home for me I like sharing it with the team. It doesn't necessarily mean that it is right or wrong. I blogged about Step 1 today just to get the feel of how "I" in every part of my "I" life would feel.

i had just read that one friday night. those are some great articles in the 10 step plan. i'm on that part of "the spark". i'm up to step 4. some people are posting they are reading the book first, then returning to do the guides. i have been doing them after each chapter. i want to be ready to start the 28 day diet with everybody else Feb. 1st., should i continue this way or read the book first.
