My spark journey...
I have been a member of spark people since April 2009 - since then I have managed to lose 25 lbs (my start weight was 167lbs) with the help of lots of exercise and a healthy nutritional intake.
I have also tried the Dukan diet for a short period of time with good results.
I have found the spark trackers really helpful.

SOME TUESDAY TRUTH

Grab A Plate & Throw It To The Ground.

Done.

Did It Break?

Yes!

Now, Say 'Sorry' To It.

Sorry!

Did It Go Back To The Way It Was Before?

No.

Now, Do You Understand?


Sweetheart,

Words can either build someone up or bury them alive. Choose to be kind, always. When we choose to judge or put others down, it tells more about our own character than it ever could say about theirs. Small people resort to such bitter forms of hate while truly great people will only lift you higher to help you to discover the value & potential you may not see yourself. Show respect & kindness to all, even those who don't deserve it because having good character & a beautiful heart will never go out of style!!!

Stay Fabulous,

Jes

Some Wednesday Wisdom
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -- - - - - - - - -

An old Cherokee man told his grandson,
"My son, there is a battle between two wolves going on inside us all."

One is EVIL. It is anger, jealousy, resentment, inferiority, lies & ego.
The other is GOOD. It is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy & truth

The boy thought about it for a minute, and then asked,
"Grandfather, WHICH wolf wins?"

The old man quietly replied,
"The ONE you FEED."

Julia,

Never forget that you & only you can CHOOSE your attitude. You CHOOSE which wolf to feed each & everyday! If you are tired of feeling crummy, STOP feeding the emotions that ONLY bring you down! Always remember that a NEGATIVE attitude will NEVER result in a POSITIVE life!!! Choose To Be HAPPY!!

Hugs,

Jes
