Will Lose Four Bowling Balls

My name is Lou. I am an experienced editor and a published writer. I am also an avid bowler and know how heavy those 16-pound bowling balls can be. Because of physical injuries my weight jumped and I now will lose the equivalent of four of these orbs.

Mental strength is necessary for physical strength.

Carpe Diem -- Seize the Day. It has been made for you and will never be repeated. Tomorrow begins a new one full of opportunities and challenges.

Carpe Diem -- Seize the Day. It has been made for you and will never be repeated. Tomorrow begins a new one full of opportunities and challenges.

Be strong, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, physically.

Second by second, minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day anything can be overcome.

My Goals:
To motivate others to believe they CAN meet and exceed their goals with God's help and the support of Spark People.



My Program:
Start 9/16/2010 -- 290.4 pounds.



Other Information:
It is easier to focus on losing one pound than 20 or 50 or 100. So aim for only a one pound loss, celebrate your success when you lose it, then shoot for one more pound until you reach your goal.

This is from the Cleveland Clinic and I thought it was so good I had to copy and share with my Spark Friends!

"What has your body done for you lately? A whole lot, actually! Focusing on function, not form, can encourage healthy habits.
Daily Dose
Loving your body and treating it well — with nutritious food, regular exercise and enough sleep — go hand in hand. Understanding your thoughts and feelings about your body can be useful, especially since that mirror, mirror on the wall can be the most fickle of them all. emoticon The media messages we take in, from Facebook to advertising, as well as other people’s opinions, can strongly sway how we view our bodies. Create a wellspring of inside-out body love by taking a trip outside the appearance paradigm. Instead of focusing on what your body looks like, focus on what it does for you. Perhaps it allows you to run around with your kids or grandkids, walk up stairs, or sit on your porch and wave to neighbors. Maybe it supports you while walking, playing tennis or climbing mountains. emoticon emoticon emoticon Consider your senses: Does your body let you see sunsets, listen to music and laughter, and smell fir trees? Your body, whatever its shape, size or condition, allows you to live your life. Make a list of all the things your body does in a day, and be especially sure to include those little things you used to take for granted. Then spend time appreciating it — you’ll be even more motivated to eat well, move regularly and keep up the other habits that contribute to a strong and healthy you!"

"Making changes in your life is never an easy task. The key, however, is not to get caught up in the distance you have to go to get to where you want to be. Nor should you despair over the amount of control you have over your circumstances. Progress is made in the small, intentional steps, and chances are, you have more power than you think. By focusing on little steps you can take every day, the progress you make will motivate you to continue your journey, and eventually,you can go wherever you want to go. The important thing is simply to begin."
-Stephen Cherniske

Hope you're all set for a great week and stick to those goals! emoticon
