SWEET SOUNDS OF SUCCESS

Hello friends! I'm starting my journey of changing from within. A new friend who is a kindred spirit turned me on to SparkPeople by giving me a copy of the book. I started reading it one week before I joined the website. I can truly say I'm excited and that is a special and welcome feeling. For almost two years I've been on a mostly downward spiral and I've been left feeling depleted.

Hello friends! I'm starting my journey of changing from within. A new friend who is a kindred spirit turned me on to SparkPeople by giving me a copy of the book. I started reading it one week before I joined the website. I can truly say I'm excited and that is a special and welcome feeling. For almost two years I've been on a mostly downward spiral and I've been left feeling depleted.

I'm a therapist and my job is super stressful. (So stressful I'm in the middle of a year or so where I'm not working in the field so I can complete my dissertation). I hope to become more present, healthy, and energetic for myself and my own sanity but also for the people I serve. I have two Masters degrees. One is in Social Work and the other is in Human Sexuality Education. Also, I'm working on a PhD and my dissertation is a HUGE priority. Some of the additional sparks I hope to gain are inspiration and momentum to research and write a meaningful dissertation.

I'm hoping to make some new friends, create motivation, lose weight, gain health, inspire others, turn off the negative self talk, and start hearing sweet sounds of success all around me.

Peace and harmony,
Sweetsounds11

Thank you for commenting on my page about yogurt making! I have enjoyed my experiments very much.

You should use a starter that you like, and I do use a greek one. This in itself does not make it greek style yogurt. To get the thick greek yogurt, you can take one more step after you chill the yogurt.

Strain it through a coffee filter or cheesecloth for a few hours, and it will get thick and concentrated like greek yogurt. The liquid part is the whey, you can dump it, or use it in smoothies or baked goods. The yogurt part will be reduced in volume by about 1/3 to 1/2, and will be thicker.
