THANKS FOR ADDING ME AS A FRIEND! I'M NOT SURE HOW YOU MADE THAT CHOICE, TELL ME SOMETHING ABUT YOURSELF. I LEARNED THE SITE BY GOING TO THE SPARK POINTS PAGE AND GOING DOWN THE LIST RESPONDING TO EACH ITEM DAILY. GOOD LUCK AND PERSERVERE. I'VE STARTED LOOSING AGAIN AFTER A LONG PLATEAU. I STILL HAVE A LOT TO LOOSE BUT I'VE LOST 50 SO FAR! WOO HOO!
Thanks for adding me as a friend...I know exactly how it is to be of a certain age but I have proven to myself that age is just a number....like the scale, it can be accurate or inaccurate...I haven't lost that much weight but I have lost 4 sizes which is really more what I wanted and knock on wood, I'm healthier and have more energy etc. Hope you will find the same here on SP!
Hi Linda and welcome to Spark People where you will find lots of information and tons of support and encouragement from all our members. You will find that we also have fun along the way. Drink your 8-8oz glasses of water a day, watch your portion control and walk. Use your fitness and nutrition tracker daily. These tips will definitely help in lowering your numbers. Don't expect miracles right away...this is a lifestyle change not a diet. You will be much healthier in the long run. Post any concerns, comments or questions you may have and someone will respond quickly. Start each day with a positive thought just for that day. Reading and reflecting on an inspirational thought or message before you start your day can put you in a positive frame of mind. Your thoughts determine whether you have a good day or a bad day. Fill your mind with positive ideas, suggestions, and thoughts. You will find it will change your attitude and changing your attitude can change your life. Sometimes just reading an inspirational quote or a short paragraph helps one see the positive in a situation. Sometimes as your day progresses you just need to take a break…Take a mental break and read or think about a message of inspiration. Never underestimate your power to change and improve! You are a good person, with wonderful qualities, and you can reach your goals! If I can be of any help to you, please let me know with a spark mail or a comment on my page. I am here for you. God bless you on your journey to a healthier you. Hugs, Helen
