GET SERIOUS, STAY SERIOUS & LOVE YOURSELF HEALTHY!

My 50th birthday I weighed 460+. In April my Dr. said LOSE WEIGHT OR DIE. When I joined SparkPeople, 05/2009, I weighed 450. It's been an up & down battle, but I won't give up. I lost down to 300 & went back up to 410. THEN I GOT SERIOUS. Along with my "serious sisters" I am working my "weigh down" the scale.I WILL succeed! Won't you join me & Love Yourself Healthy?!
I have awesome Spark teams that help me. If you care to join, feel free to ask me for an invite.

Recipe for a Merry Christmas

To a cup of tradition, time-honored and dear,
Add a generous portion of holiday cheer,
Combine with the memories of Christmases past,
Then sprinkle the mixture with joy unsurpassed.
Add a dash of good spirits, stir fondly until
You set it to rise in the warmth of good will.
Pour love over all in generous measure,
And garnish with laughter and heartwarming pleasure.

~ Barbara Burrow ~

Take care of yourself, Dawn! Wonder if hot limeade is as good for a cough as hot lemonade??
Hope your recovery is quick enough for you to enjoy the holidays!

This Holiday Season, give yourself the gift of self-motivation:

1. Review your reasons for wanting to be healthier.

2. Think about how you felt when you began your new healthy lifestyle. You remember . . . tired, low energy, lots of aches and pains, miserable, embarrassed, etc. and pay close attention to the smallest changes in your body. Think about how far you’ve come so far.

3. Challenge yourself . . . the try some new, healthy food options; a new form of exercise; walk farther; run faster; whatever. Just make sure the challenge you set is realistic for you.

4. Set up reminders to keep yourself on track – they can be sticky notes taped to your computer monitor, automatic text messages/emails you send yourself, or anything else that will keep your goals front and center in your mind.

5. Surround yourself with others who are positive and motivated.

6. Read success stories or watch them on video.

7. Learn as much as you can about healthy lifestyles. In this case, education CAN be free! There is a ton of good info on this site or in your local library. Knowledge is POWER!

8. Just Get Moving! Once you start, you’ll want to keep going.

9. Keep a record of your progress. Seeing concrete evidence of your improvement will motivate you to do even more/better.

10. Help others when you can.

Keep going!

You are SPARKTACULAR!
