The Journey Continues...

Things Sparkpeople has taught me:
1) Never give up.
2) Misery may love company but being in the company of happy people (i.e. Sparkfriends) will get you through the misery.
3) Confidence is a learned trait and fake it until you make it!
4) Exercise really does make me happier (and healthier).
5) Weight loss, fitness and healthy living are a journey not a destination.

I am on this journey for the long haul - I've left SP for months at a time and always ...

I am on this journey for the long haul - I've left SP for months at a time and always come back. I would love some new Sparkfriends because a lot of folks left along the way and did not come back :( - and back to #2 I like the company for this journey!

The Positive Weight Loss Approach

Once you have made up your mind to lose weight, you should make that commitment and go into it with a positive attitude. We all know that losing weight can be quite a challenge. In fact, for most of us, it can be downright tough. It takes time, practice and support to change lifetime habits. But it's a process you must learn in order to succeed. It is said that if you do something for 21 days it will become a habit. You and you alone are the one who has the power to lose unwanted pounds.

The positive thinker.....
.....sees the invisible.....
..........feels the intangible.....
...and achieves the impossible!
