Secrets of Success

I'M Small Not Tall



After marriage I started to eat the larger portions like my 6'2" husband and I'm 5'3" well... I gained 40 pounds!! Since starting Spark as I'm filling my plate I remind myself to keep the portions with in reason by telling myself "I'm small, not tall." emoticon

  • I love it! I will use this mantra since I am only 5'1" tall. I remember when I was a teenager my best friend mom always want to treat us equally for it came to snacks, etc...
    Since I was taught to eat all on my plate I did so. My friend was 5'8". I gained and it showed. Well, I put an end to it that year. Too bad I did not remember this when I got married!!! - by ANNESYLVIA
