Positive thoughts produce positive results.

My phrase for 2016 is "less talk and more action"

It's so easy to talk about doing things to help me get healthier, but when it comes right down to doing those things sometimes I have a problem putting them into action. So reading a team mates blog and recalling an Elvis song came up with my phrase and it seems to be working for me. It's surprising where we sometimes find inspiration, there's plenty on Spark to be found, we just have to find what speaks to us.

Wishing all a very successful 2016!

    Thank you so much for your comment on my "Challenging my maintenance" blog, Shirl! I appreciate the encouragement. The challenge has definitely helped!

    You're so right; none of it is easy. I love having a place like Spark, and our team, where I know I'll always get the support and positive feedback I need. You'll do it, too - those 23 lbs are toast!

    Thank you for your kind words on my No Regrets Part 2 blog. I have felt blessed that my ex has been willing to be cooperative all these years. We are also blessed that both our current spouses work with us on the system. In this case it doesn't "take 2 to tango". It really takes 4. And as my daughter learned with her ex (her son's father) one person cannot do it alone. At any rate, thanks again. I hope you have a good day tomorrow.

    Shiryl, Thank you for the support on my blog. I agree it is hard lesson to learn we can't help everyone nor can we please everyone. I think accepting ourselves and getting to the point that we really are comfortable with ourselves is vastly important.
