WHEN I STARTED SPARKS MY FASTING BLOOD SUGAR WAS 360 NOW TO DATE ITS 117. I MEET MY GOAL FOR A HEALTHY BLOOD SUGAR LEVEL IN 2009. WOO HOO!!
MY NEXT STEP IS I NEED TO CONTROL MY PORTIONS AND GET OUT AND WALK MORE.
I HAVE SOME GREAT TEAMS AND SPARK FRIENDS TO HELP MOTIVATE ME . BUT AS WE ALL KNOW IT COMES FROM WITHIN.
THE JOURNEY WILL BE LONG AND SOMEDAYS HARD. BUT I'M WILLING TO TAKE IT.
I KNOW I CAN DO THIS..IT MAY TAKE A FEW FALLS AND A FEW SCRAPED KNEES BUT I KNOW AT THE END THERE WILL BE A SHINNING STAR. ..
I WILL STICK TO IT ONE DAY AT A TIME ...
AND WITH MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS SUPPORT.
I WILL MAKE IT.


Today_2-27-10________(date) I _AMIE_____ will begin to practice healthier lifestyle habits and I will make the following commitments. I will give to myself as I give to others. I will value my health as I value the health of my loved ones. I won't ask 'should I or shouldn't I?' about matters of self care. I will just do it. I humbly accept that I must work to be the best that I can be. I will choose to work for myself, rather than abandon myself. I will take responsibility for my lifestyle behaviors and I commit to practicing them with patience and consistency. And, I will embrace adversity as an opportunity to test my newfound mental and physical strength."

Creating your own Power Mind means to:

* adapt and adjust to adversity without self destruction and begin to recognize that tough times are actually golden opportunities to learn about life;

* stay mentally mindful and in the present, maintaining a focus on the goal;

* avoid over-thinking, ruminating and complaining and instead become positive and proactive;

* pursue progress, not perfection;

* give yourself a license to chill by gifting yourself with Mini Chills (closing your eyes for several minutes or more) of mental rest and peace throughout the day;

* strive to become a master of regrouping when life's challenges threaten to derail your journey of change;

* be self-assertive and fight for the right to take care of yourself;

* gather and nurture your own support system to help guide you on your journey.

TIPS FROM HUNGRY GIRL!!

Happy 2010!
Here are my TOP ATE tips for successful eating in 2010...

1. Don't go "on a diet." While diet plans can be helpful, if you think of yourself as being "on a diet," everything can become too black and white. If you're "on a diet" and suddenly you have a little setback, you may decide you're "off your diet" and go back to your old ways. Think of your new eating plan as more of a lifestyle change -- one that will have ups and downs, with good days and bad.

2. Don't deprive yourself. A food plan shouldn't be about deprivation. It should be about SATISFACTION. Find foods you LOVE -- things that satisfy you but are better choices than the fat-packed alternatives. This is KEY.

3. Drink lots of water. Water is good for you. It's good for your skin and your metabolism. And it helps fill you up. Plus, not getting enough water can make you cranky and more likely to make bad food choices.

4. Listen to your body. It knows things. If eating cereal for breakfast tends to make you hungrier throughout the day, then don't eat cereal in the morning. Pay close attention to your body cues. This will help tremendously.

5. Live one day (or even one MEAL) at a time. Don't be discouraged and beat yourself up if you fall off the wagon and eat badly -- just be aware and make better decisions at your next meal.

6. Get exercise with activities you enjoy. I used to HATE exercising. I feared it. Now I exercise but only do what I like (which happens to be walking on a treadmill five times a week, while watching reality TV, and weight training twice a week with a friend). Find something you actually enjoy doing, and you'll do it. Don't take on an exercise routine that causes pain or discomfort -- you'll just end up ditching it completely. (And I know this isn't an EATING tip, but it's important!)

7. Let yourself cheat a little. Everyone strays once in a while. It's totally normal. Splurge when you need to, and enjoy it. (Don't feel guilty!) Then get RIGHT back on track to prove to yourself that you can handle a cheat meal now and then.

8. Keep track of what you eat. Write it down. As dorky as it sounds, you WILL 100% without a doubt make better choices if you hold yourself accountable for what you eat by keeping a food journal. Just do it -- even if you only write in it every OTHER day.

Good luck, and have a GREAT year!

Wanting something is not enough. You must hunger for it. Your motivation must be absolutely compelling in order to overcome the obstacles that will invariably come your way.

GREAT INSPIRATION FOR ME!

You can not find your soul with your mind,
You must use your heart,
You must know what you are feeling,
If you do not know what you are feeling,
You create unconsciously,
If you are unconscious of an aspect of your self,
If it operates outsides your field of awareness,
That aspect has power over you.

Find Your Why
You can do what you think you cannot do. First you must change your thinking.
Most perceived limitations have some basis in fact. Yet every limitation that holds you back is supported in large measure by your assumption that it is a limitation.

By changing your assumptions, you can change the whole landscape of your possibilities. What once were limitations no longer are limitations.

Look at life from the perspective of purpose. Realize that there is a way to successfully express whatever authentic purpose is within you.

If you focus merely on how to get it done, you'll find that many of the paths are blocked. Focus instead on why you must, and you'll open yourself to a new set of workable, accessible and achievable strategies.

What do you think you cannot do? Find your why, and you'll see the way.

-- Ralph Marston

(This life is yours. Take the power
to choose what you want to do and
do it well. Take the power to love
what you want in life and love it
honestly. Take the power to walk
in the forest and be a part of nature.
Take the power to control your own life.
No one else can do it for you.
Take the power to make your life happy.”
~ Susan Polis Schutz

Never give up
Never lose hope.

Always have faith,
It allows you to cope.

Trying times will pass,
As they always do.

Just have patience,
Your dreams will come true.

So put on a smile,
You’ll live through your pain,

Know it will pass,
And strength you will gain.

"The next time you feel a craving, you're tempted, discouraged, unmotivated or you feel like skipping a workout, focus on your daily goals, not on the huge amount of work that is ahead of you. Tell yourself, all I have is today! All I have is this moment, this workout, this meal, the next 30 minutes, the next hour. If I just do what I know I must do now, then I KNOW I'll reach my ultimate goal eventually. Concentrate on the task at hand IN THIS MOMENT." ~ Tom Venuto

Don't Quit Poem
by anonymous

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest! if you must; but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up, though the pace seems slow;
You might succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor's cup.
And he learned too late, when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out;
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt;
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit;
It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.

One Day at a Time

Whatever the goal we're pursuing,
no matter how rugged the climb,
we're certain to get there
by trying our best,
and taking One Day At A Time.

"Forever" is hard to imagine,
"the future" may seem far away-
but every new dawn
brings a wonderful chance
to do what we can on that day.

-Emily Matthews

*********************************


Yesterday is history,
Tomorrow is a mystery,
Today is a gift.
That's why it is called the "present".


*********************************

Not on plan just for today?
Tomorrow is a new fresh day.
Congratulations on starting over.
Forget, forgive and move on!

Evaluate what caused you to slip, the situation, and where it might have occurred.
See that you can learn from your slip.

REMEMBER!!!

Slips should teach you, not defeat you!


Accept that sometimes it’s going to suck. Despite your best intentions, there will be days when you fall into a bag of crisps. But long-term success is about persistence, not perfection. It’s picking yourself up when you fall, over and over again.

*********************************
In the warrious code
There's no surrender
Though his body says stop
His spirit cries - never!
Deep in our soul
A quiet ember
Know it's you against you
It's the paradox
That drives us on
It's a battle of wills
In the heat of attack
It's the passion that kills
The victory is yours alone

********************************
Harlen Coben

My Mother kept a garden,
a garden of the heart.
She planted all the good things
that gave my life its start.
She turned me to the sunshine
and encouraged me to dream,
Fostering and nurturing
the seeds of self-esteem...
And when the wind and rains came,
she protected me enough-
but not too much because she knew
I'd need to stand up strong and tough.
Her constant good example
always taught me right from wrong-
Markers for my pathway
that will last a lifetime long.
I am my Mother's garden.
I am her legacy-
And I hope today she feels the love
reflected back from me.

I THOUGHT I WOULD SHARE THIS WITH YOU ITS FROM ONE OF MY TEAMS


START OVER

If you've started out in pursuit of your goal
And you've really tried with your heart and your soul,
but somehow things got out of control---
START OVER.

When you've tried your best to do what you should
And you thought this time that you surely would,
But once again, you didn't do good---
START OVER.

When you've worked so hard to follow a dieter’s way
And you fought to win a victory each day.
But one more time you went astray---
START OVER.

When you've tried so hard to yourself to be true
And do the things that you know you should do,
But once again you failed to come through---
START OVER.

When the road to success seemed much too long
And each temptation was oh so strong
And once again you gave in to wrong---
START OVER.

When you've told your friends what you planned to do
And trusted them to help you through
But soon discovered it's up to you---
START OVER.

When you know you must be physically fit,
But your hope seems gone and you're stuck in a pit
That's not the time for you to quit---
START OVER.

When the week seems long and successes few
And at weigh-in time you're feeling blue,
Remember tomorrow is just for you---
START OVER.

To start again means a victory's been won
And starting over again means a race well run
And starting over again proves it can be done
So don't just sit there---
START OVER

Nothing's impossible I have found,
For when my chin is on the ground,
I pick myself up,
Dust myself off,
Start all over again.

Don't lose your confidence if you slip,
Be grateful for a pleasant trip,
And pick yourself up,
Dust yourself off,
Start all over again.

Work like a soul inspired,
Till the battle of the day is won.
You may be sick and tired,
But you'll be a man, my son!

Will you remember the famous men,
Who had to fall to rise again?
So take a deep breath,
Pick yourself up,
Dust yourself off,
Start all over again.

THANK YOU TEAM EE.

When you've eaten too much and you can't write it down,

And you feel like the biggest failure in town.

When you want to give up just because you gave in,

and forget all about being healthy and thin.

So What! You went over your points a bit,

It's your next move that counts...So don't you quit!

It's a moment of truth, it's an attitude change.

It's learning the skills to get back in your range.

It's telling yourself, "You've done great up till now.

You can take on this challenge and beat it somehow."

It's part of your journey toward reaching your goal.

You're still gonna make it, just stay in control.

To stumble and fall is not a disgrace,

if you summon the will to get back in the race.

But, often the struggler's, when loosing their grip,

Just throw in the towel and continue to slip.

And learn too late when the damage is done,

that the race wasn't over...they still could have won.

Lifestyle change can be awkward and slow,

but facing each challenge will help you grow.

Success is failure turned inside out,

the silver tint in a cloud of doubt.

When you're pushing to the brink, just refuse to submit,

If you bite it, you write it....But don't you quit!

The Truth About The Power Of Your Mind~~~~~~~

"The difference between 'can' and 'cannot' are three letters. Three letters that determine your life's direction." - Remez Sasson

"Visualizing your desire as already accomplished and enjoying the feelings of accomplishment, awaken in you energies that drive you to do whatever it takes to make your desire come true." - Remez Sasson

"Affirmations awaken the power of your subconscious mind into action." - Remez Sasson

"Motivation gives the first push, but you need persistence and self discipline to get to the finish line." - Remez Sasson

~When you realize the power your mind has over the rest of your body you become aware of how powerful you really are. You are the only person who can change you from the inside out. By being positive, and never giving up-- there is NOTHING you can't achieve. I can see successes in our future.
We can have control over food in our lives.

TO MY FRIENDS!!

If I could catch a rainbow
I would do it just for you
And share with you its beauty
On the days you're feeling blue.

If I could build a mountain
You could call your very own;
A place to find serenity,
A place to be alone.

If I could take your troubles
I would toss them in the sea,
But all these things I'm finding
Are impossible for me.

I can not build a mountain
Or catch a rainbow fair,
But let me be what I know best,
A friend who's always there.

Ten Thoughts to Live By

1 Thou shalt not worry, for worry is the most unproductive of all human activities.
2 Thou shalt not be fearful, for most of the things we fear never come to pass.
3 Thou shalt not cross bridges before you get to them, for no one yet has succeeded in accomplishing this.
4 Thou shalt face each problem as it comes. You can handle only one at a time anyway.
5 Thou shalt not take problems to bed with you for they make very poor bedfellows.
6 Thou shalt not borrow other people's problems. They can take better care of them than you can.
7 Thou shalt not try to relive yesterday for good or ill — it is gone. Concentrate on what is happening in your life today.
8 Thou shalt count thy blessings, never overlooking the small ones, for a lot of small blessings add up to a big one.
9 Thou shalt be a good listener, for only when you listen do you hear ideas different from your own. It is very hard to learn something new when you are talking.
10 Thou shalt not become bogged down by frustration, for 90 percent of it is rooted in self-pity, and it will only interfere with positive action.

THIS WAS WRITTEN BY ANGELLEO76

Just wrote this poem tonight and wanted to share it.

Why do I do it?
I do it for me
for the girl in the mirror
for the future I see
for the God that guides me
and dwells in my heart
I do it for me
so I won't be a part--
a part of the pain
a part of the lies
the negativity and anger
the hate and the cries
I am no longer that girl
the one hiding in the dark
because I found my light
I found my SPARK
I've done it, I'll do it,
I'm doing it now
I'm DONE, I'm free,
I found the new me
and she's not looking back,
only ahead
to dwell in the past
would be like a weight of lead
I need good things
I need happiness
support and love
to continue to turn
this pigeon into a dove
I'm DONE, free, found a new me
no looking back
for all I can see
is the girl I'm becoming--
that girl is me
the one in the mirror
is who I'll be


THANK YOU!

+++++++++++++++++++++++

FORGET IT!!

If you ain't been treated right,
forget it.

Don't go looking for a fight,
forget it.
Theres no need to bear a grudge,
T'will your happiness besmudge,
Anyway you ain't the judge,
Forget it!

So you've been misunderstood,
Forget it!
You've done the best you could,
Forget it!
Theres no need to pout and whine,
Sit around all day and pine
Cheer up neighbor, sing and shine,
Forget it!

So somebody slandered you,
Forget it!

Just make sure it wasn't true,
Then forget it!
Needless grief will mar your life
if you let it
No use nagging about life,
Forget it!

Theres no need to be depressed,
Tho you've gone through many a test.
And you feel that your oppressed
And by many cares possessed.
Tell the lord, he knows what best,
If you all your wrongs are confessed
And you'll follow his behest
Then your soul will be so blessed
Like a birdie in his nest
Theres no need to be depressed
Forget it!
