SGTSUNNY is a SparkPeople Motivator!
Welcome to my page! My name is Diane and I am a proud member of the Sunny Gals and the NW sparklers!
Contact me if you would like to join in one of my teams.
I once believed I could not lose weight or quit smoking or start exercising. But I found that if I had faith in myself and use the resources I have found on Sparks: I can! I quit smoking 5 years ago and lost over 60 pounds. I think if you look inside yourself you will be surprised to find you can do it too.
My mission statement: To appreciate and enjoy life to the fullest by gaining knowledge, mobility and grace."
ï¿½Set your goals high, and donï¿½t stop till you get there.ï¿½
I want to thank Sparks, the Done Girls, the Sunny Gals and all of my Sparks Friends for helping me lose over 60 pounds! I know that the PUSH Season will be the best ever! Go Sunnies! Love YA!

We're gonna do it!
Give us any chance, we'll take it.
Give us any rule, we'll break it.
We're gonna make our dreams come true.
Doin' it our way.
Nothin's gonna turn us back now,
Straight ahead and on the track now.
We're gonna make our dreams come true,
Doin' it our way.
There is nothing we won't try,
Never heard the word impossible.
This time there's no stopping us.
We're gonna do it.
On your mark, get set, and go now,
Got a dream and we just know now,
We're gonna make our dream come true.
And we'll do it our way, yes our way.
Make all our dreams come true,
And do it our way, yes our way,
Make all our dreams come true
For me and you
The first rule of success, and one that supersedes all others, is to have energy.
It's important to know how to concentrate it. Focus your energy on important matters instead of frittering it away on meaningless things.
Nothing will add more power to your life then concentrating all your energies on a limited set of goals.
You must focus the full power of all you are on what you have a burning desire to achieve if you truly want to be successful.
Gather in your resources, rally all your faculties, marshal all your energies, focus all your capacities upon attaining your objectives.
You must be single minded, and drive for the things you have decided upon.
The sun's rays do not burn until brought to a focus.
One Day at a Time
Whatever the goal we're pursuing,
no matter how rugged the climb,
we're certain to get there
by trying our best,
and taking One Day At A Time.
"Forever" is hard to imagine,
"the future" may seem far away-
but every new dawn
brings a wonderful chance
to do what we can on that day.
ï¿½There is no elevator to success. You have to take the stairs.ï¿½
You are successful the moment you start moving toward a worthwhile goal.
ï¿½We either make ourselves happy or miserable. The amount of work is the same.ï¿½
Let go of the past
"Your journey has molded you for your greater good, and it was exactly what it needed to be. Don't think that you've lost time. There is no short-cutting to life. It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now. And now is right on time."
-- Asha Tyson
No regrets. As we become more aware, we begin to realize that thereï¿½s a purpose to everything that happens. This builds our trust, and supports us in being willing to be more open and daring to really experience life as it unfolds.
If we pay attention to whatï¿½s happening in each moment, we will discover that life continually brings us opportunities to heal our past wounds. When a painful memory surfaces, we can take the time to feel it fully, give compassion to ourselves and any others and allow the energy to release. As we deal with the past in this way IN THE PRESENT, we free ourselves to more fully connect with life.

Mini Beach Vacation
Married over 29 years and have one daughter who is attending college. I love to read and workout in the pool.
I have been overweight since my mid 20s and when I quit smoking on 10/27/2007 I packed on more pounds.
I hope to lose my weight so I can enjoy a cruise to Alaska in 2014 or 2015
Love to read, favorite authors are Nora Roberts , Laurel K Hamilton and Charlene Harris! Love animals, especially cats. Love being a Done Being the Fat Girl! And the Sunny Gals Challenge team, just ask if you want to be part of it!

~ IF I HAD MY LIFE TO LIVE OVER ~
~~Erma Bombeck~~~(written after she found out she was dying from cancer).
I would have gone to bed when I was sick instead of pretending the earth
would go into a holding pattern if I weren't there for the day.
I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in storage.
I would have talked less and listened more.
I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained, or the sofa faded.
I would have eaten the popcorn in the 'good' living room and worried much less
about the dirt when someone wanted to light a fire in the fireplace.
I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth.
I would have shared more of the responsibility carried by my husband.
I would never have insisted the car windows be rolled up on a summer day
because my hair had just been teased and sprayed.
I would have sat on the lawn with my grass stains.
I would have cried and laughed less while watching television and more while watching life.
I would never have bought anything just because it was practical,
wouldn't show soil, or was guaranteed to last a lifetime.
Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy, I'd have cherished every moment
and realized that the wonderment growing inside me
was the only chance in life to assist God in a miracle.
When my kids kissed me impetuously, I would never have said,
"Later. Now go get washed up for dinner."
There would have been more "I love you's." More "I'm sorry's."
But mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize every minute...
look at it and really see it, live it .and never give it back. I would stop sweating the small stuff.
I wouldn't worry about who doesn't like me, who has more, or who's doing what. Instead,
I would cherish the relationships I have with those who love me.
I would think about what God HAS blessed me with, and what I am doing each day
to promote myself mentally, physically, emotionally.
After reading this, I realized how many more "I would" add to this list.
"I would" share this with my friends, because my life is pretty wonderful with them in it.
Wishing you a Blessed Day

Hey you......yes you,
Stop being unhappy with yourself,
Stop wishing you looked like someone else
or wishing people liked you as much as they like someone else,
Stop trying to get attention from those who hurt you,
Stop hating your body, your face, your face, your quirks..
love them for without those things you wouldn't be you
and why would you want to be anyone else? Be confident
with who you are, smile..it'll draw people in.
If anyone hates you because you are happy with yourself,
then just say "screw it, my happiness will not depend on others anymore.
I'm happy because I love who I am. I love my flaws..I love my imperfections..
they make me "me" and "me" is pretty amazing"
~~Love yourself today~~

Valentine's Day gives me a reason to express the feelings,
I think about but don't say to people, who enrich my life in unique and meaningful ways.
You are this kind of person. When I think of you, my thoughts are warm, and fond,
And filled with admiration. I feel blessed to know you.
May your Valentine's Day be filled with the love and respect you deserve.
Have a Happy Valentine's Day

I don't know why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine's Day.
When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short,
chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon.
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!
