after complications at my sons birth,nearly dieing and several operations later i am still here two years later still trying to loose weight.so far i have lost 118..5lbs but still have 56lbs to go.so as you see i still have a long way to go.i am hoping to rach goal this year and if i do there will be such a virtual party(which you will all be invited too)as well as a real one at home,lol.my mini goal is to get to ONE-DER-LAND.i have 11.6lbs to go to official be there.i want to take this opurtunity to thank every one here on sparks foe enabling me to get thai far and spark guy for setting up this site.for thoes of you struggling,doing the right thing re exercise and food but are semmingly not have much success remember the scale is not the be all and end all.there are loads of none scale victories on the way which you have to look for and remember.my two biggest none scale victories so far are.

being able to cut my toenails without struggling and one day when i was out and my trousers fell down (luckily by my front door and i hope no one saw.)

ask yourself theese questions.

have you more energy?

are you healthier?fitter?less out of breath going up stairs?

are you happier?more positive ?

have you a better self esteem?

do your clothes feel loser or even fall off?

have you more energy?

ALL THE ABOVE ARE NONE SCALE VICTORIES:

here is a link to remind you that muscle weighs heavier than fat but takes up less space so even if you havent lost much weight it doesnt mean you are not losing.

REMEMBER THAT HERE ON SPARK PEOPLE YOU ARE NOT ALONE THERE ARE LOTS OF SUPPORT AND INFORMATION AND PEOPLE HER TO HELP YOU SHOULD YOU WANT YOU JUST HAVE TO REACH OUT FOR IT AND YOU WILL FIND IT:I KNOW I NEED AND WILL TAKE ALL THE HELP AND SUPPORT THAT I CAN GET

if you are an emotional eater like me ask yourself this question it is what i am going to be asking my self alot.

CAN A PERSON OR EVENT SABATAGE YOUR EFFORTS IF YOU DONT LET IT?

I HAVE THE POWER TO CONTROL WHAT GOES OR DOES NOT GO IN MY MOUTH:IT IS MY CHOICE AND NOONE OR NO CIRCUMSTANCE DOES IT BUT MYSELF I AM THE ONE THAT PICKS UP THE FOOD AND PUT IT IN MY MOUTH:I AM THE ONE THAT ACTUALLY SWOLLOWS IT:I AM THE ONE THAT HAS THE GUILT FOR EATING SOMETHING LATER I AM THE O,NE ,WHO FEELS BAD FOR LOOSING CONTROL:I JUST HAVE TO ALWAYS REMEMBER IT IS A CHOICE:IT IS MY CHOICE NO ONE ELSES:I AM THE ONE WHO HAS TO FACE THE CONCIQUENCES NOT YOU OR WHO EVER IT WAS OR WHAT EVER IT WAS THAT MADE YOU LOOSE CONTROL AS THAT WHAT EMOTIONAL EATING IS IT IS ABOUT LOOSING CONTROL FOR WHATEVER REASON:IT IS TIME I TAKE MY POWER BACK INSTEAD OF GIVING IT TO SOMEONE OR SOMETHING ELSE:I CAN DO THIS ONE STEO AND ONE CHOICE AT THE TIME:IT IS DOWN TO ME JUST LIKE IT IS DOWN TO YOU WHAT YOU PUT OR DONT PUT IN YOUR MOUTH:LET US ALL DO THIS ONE CHOICE AT A TIME AND REJOICE WHEN WE MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE;FORGIVE WHEN WE MAKE THE WRONG CHOICE AND CARRY ON TO THE NEXT CHOICE:THERE WILL ALWAYS BE THE NEXT CHOICE GOD WILLING:YOU CAN DO THIS;I CAN DO THIS ;WE CAN DO THIS:

FAR AWAY IN THE SUNSHINE ARE MY HIGHEST ASPIRATIONS:
I MAY NOT REACH THEM;
BUT I CAN LOOK UP AND SEE THIER BEAUTY;
BELIEVE IN THEM;AND TRY TO FOLLOW WHERE THEY LEAD:
louisa may alcott.

it Is never too late to be what you might have been.

you will never find time for anything you must make it.

your greatest challenge is NOT someone else.it Is the aching in your lungs,the burning in your legs and the voice inside that yells I cant.dont listen,push harder and hear the voice that yells I CAN.you then realize that the person you thought you were is no match for the one you really are.

nothing tastes so good as being healthy feels(from sperry65 spark page)

fall down seven times,stand up eight.

may you live every day of your life.

this is an afirmation i made up for a challange that was coming to an end.have decided to put it here as i think it is applicable in all areas of my life or that of anyone elses life.

I AM GREAT;
I AM ALIVE;
I DID THIS CHALLANGE;
I CAN DO THE NEXT;
LIFE IS GOOD;
I AM MAKING PROGRESS;
I AM WORTHY;
I AM ME;
