YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR DESTINY JUST LIKE I DID.
MIND, BODY AND SPIRIT THEY ALL WORK AS ONE TO MAKE A PERSON WHOLE.
YOU KNOW THAT LOSING WEIGHT IS A MIND GAME THEN COMES THE BODY WORKING HARD TO MAKE IT HAPPEN THEN THE SPIRIT JUMPS ON THE BAND WAGON AND THEN THINGS START TO CHANGE, MIND, BODY AND SPIRIT YOU NEED ALL THREE WORKING TOGETHER TO MAKE LOSING WEIGHT POSSIBLE. GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR JOURNEY TO A HEALTHY LIFE.




June of 2006 I was bedridden and my doctor gave me a month to live and told me to get my affairs in order and did not think he would see me again. He made an appointment for me for July and he almost passed out when he saw me walk into his office without assistance. I made up my mind that I was not ready to let go of life just yet so I started to take care of myself and eat properly and exercise and get well. I gave up smoking after a 30 year two pack a day habit and stopped abusing alcohol after twenty years . I made up my mind to get healthy so I could see my grand children grow up and prosper.

I have made great improvments in my health and in my life. I enjoy each day and live each day to the max.
I am very healthy now and just finished this years (June2013) physical and lab tests, every test came back normal and the Doctor said I was a picture of health. I am at my goal weight, the Doctor was very happy with my progress.
I have been smoke free since March 20, 2005, I have been sober since June 8, 2006. I love my new life.
I have made many friends here on the Spark site and I enjoy each and everyone I meet, I never in my wildest dreams thought I could get this far in such a short time. I am very thankful for everyones support in my efforts to improve my health and my life.
Thank you to all my friends now and in the future and a special thank you to SparkPeople.com for making it possible for people to live a healthy lifestyle.

MOTIVATION IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS. THIS HELPS ME WHEN I NEED THAT LITTLE PUSH TO KEEP GOING.

M- MAKE SHORT TERM GOALS
O- OUT WITH THE NEGATIVE THOUGHTS
T- THINK OF WHY YOU WANT THIS
I- IMAGINE HOW YOU WILL FEEL
V- VISUALIZE HOW YOU WILL LOOK
A- ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR SUCCESSES
T- TREAT YOURSELF WITH RESPECT
I- INVESTIGATE NEW WAYS TO GET FIT
O- OBSERVE YOUR HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
N- NEVER GIVE UP


No matter what level you're at on your journey to get healthier, remember that because of your efforts, you truly shine! So get the SPARK in you and SHINE!

    Thank you for leaving a comment on my small changes blog.
    Great job on shopping the perimeter~
    That is one of the things I dislike about my store; they have moved all of the organic/healthy foods and mixed them in the aisles with the garbage "foods". grrr.

    Glad you were able to find what works for you.

    I just want you to know that a "Divinely" timed email arrived from you today. I have been off of SparkPeople for about 2 years and have felt the tug to jump back in. Clearly I needed a push. Thank you for including me in the group message. It was exactly the encouragement and motivation I need right now. God Bless You! emoticon
