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.

"Direct yourself, consistently and persistently, toward the places, situations, experiences, people and results that you wish to have in your life.
You have more than enough energy, opportunities and ability, when focused in a specific direction, to achieve whatever you choose.
So choose to choose. Decide how your life will be, this hour, this day, this year, this century, and live the true richness of making it happen."
-- Ralph Marston
