SUMMER 5% CHALLENGE.

I am glad to be part of the Summer 5% Challenge. I know that these challenges keep me "on track" toward building a happier, healthier life.

I am reading a book right now called, "The Diet Fix: Why Diets Don't Work" by Dr. Yoni Freedhoff. The book reinforces what I am learning from sparkpeople.

One line I like: "The more weight you want to permanently lose, the more of your life you're going to have to permanently change." THIS IS ...
SUMMER 5% CHALLENGE.

I am glad to be part of the Summer 5% Challenge. I know that these challenges keep me "on track" toward building a happier, healthier life.

I am reading a book right now called, "The Diet Fix: Why Diets Don't Work" by Dr. Yoni Freedhoff. The book reinforces what I am learning from sparkpeople.

One line I like: "The more weight you want to permanently lose, the more of your life you're going to have to permanently change." THIS IS A LIFESTYLE!!!

Another idea from the book I really like is about "what to do when things aren't going to plan?" Dr. Freedhoff suggests asking yourself two questions, "What can I do RIGHT NOW that I can be proud of?" and "What can I do RIGHT NOW that can help a little bit?"

There's a lot in my life right now not-going-according-to-my-plan. It's "Serenity Prayer" time. But with the help of sparkpeople I can make good choices that will build a healthy, happy life.
