JuliaOak getting fit and healthy!

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.

I love the spark community and am thankful to all the friends I have made here who have helped me along this journey with ...

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

emoticon Julia,

Wanted to stop by and see how you are doing. With not being a leader, I'm not on the team as much as I should. I pray all is well with you and the family. Keep up the good work.

Blessing,

Tina

"There is NO passion to be found in SETTLING
for a life that is LESS than the one you are CAPABLE of living."

- - NELSON MANDELLA - -


Julia,

Never settle for less than EXACTLY what you want out of life!
Let your DREAMS be BIGGER than anything you may FEAR!
Let your ACTIONS speak LOUDER than your WORDS!
Don't be afraid of failing - - Be afraid of NEVER daring to try!
You DESERVE to live your life to it's fullest capacity!
YOU are WORTH the time, the energy & the effort it takes to be healthy!
You CAN & WILL do this!! I believe in YOU:)

Stay Positive,

Jes
