    Thank you for this. I hope you don't mind me sharing a quote I love:

"Suppose for a moment that God began taking from us the many things for which we have failed to give thanks. Which of our limbs and faculties would be left? Would I still have my hands and my mind? And what about loved ones? If God were to take from me all those persons and things for which I have not given thanks, what would be left of me?" - Patrick Henry Reardon.

Thank you so much for all of your comments & votes on my blog "There is no easy way out!" I read every one. You guys rock!! emoticon



Thank you for your encouragement & support. We're in this together!! emoticon This journey is so much easier when we support one another, don't you think?

Today, I have a special challenge for you. I want you to count your blessings. I won't lie -- life is hard. We all have tough times we go through, but there is always something to be thankful for -- even if it's just that the sun came up this morning, that's a blessing. My SparkFriends are a blessing to me & I'm thankful for all of you.

I have found that an attitude of gratitude helps me get through this journey a little easier. Try it & you'll see.



Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    I love your Internet high-5!

You know, I do count my blessings every day. I do so using a service called Gratitude 160. This is a free service that sends you an email 3x a day asking you to stop and reflect what you are grateful for at the moment. And regardless of my mood I reflect and answer. At the end of the week, you get a list of everything you listed. I find it to be a great mood lifter, particularly when I really need reminding how good my life actually is.

Then every week I go public and share my weekly gratitude log here on my blog. It does my heart a world of good to shout my blessings from the rooftops!

We all have so much to be thankful for. This should be a must for all of us. Thank you for reminding me to focus on these instead of the negatives.

You can't out exercise a bad diet!

Thursday, December 06, 2012



Have you tried this? I have!! emoticon It doesn't work. emoticon

There are these little things called "work" & "commute" & "sleep" that got in the way.

It was to the point that I was going to have to exercise 25 hours a day, 8 days a week. emoticon Just kidding, but you get the idea.

Learn from my mistakes -- don't try this one. Really . . . I promise you that it doesn't work.

Blessings to you!!! emoticon emoticon

    Guilty as charged. This works when I have to make small corrections, but isn't a healthy way to think or live.

I try to do the exercise first. For example, I know I'm going out to dinner and I know about how many calories I'm going to eat. After figuring out my calories for what I am going to meet all day, I figure out if anything (best choices here, not fried stuff or extra bread or whatever that I'm not going to eat anyhow) and then add extra fitness time to my workouts. I don't know if this really gets me anywhere mathematically, it it does make me consider more what I eat and helps me remember to think of food as fuel, rather just flavor/texture/desire.

But after a bonafide binge, forget it.

  I think we all have to learn this - some sooner than others. I remember thinking I would do hundreds of situps, run for miles, etc., just so I could eat waaaay too much. Nope, didn't work. I was a slow learner, but I think it has finally sunk in.

ERINMARIE424 12/6/2012 10:10PM

    It took me a very looooooong time to realize this is true! But once I did, and learned how to eat properly the weight came off. Much easier to keep myself from eating the calories in the first place than to try to burn them off later!

    Love getting my body toned up, strengthened, and more flexible. Improving my heart and lung capacity. And the peace I find taking long walks outdoors. But if I am haphazard about what I eat, I won't be healthy! Mindful eating, choosing what is beneficial, not just what is permissible ... That has been key for me in losing 25% of my "old" self! Keep making those healthy choices and reminding others to do the same!

    So true. I've tried going the exercise route myself. No matter how hard or long you work out, it won't overcome the amount of food and alcohol you can put in your mouth.

It just leaves you frustrated and disappointed ( and sweaty and tired ).

Lose the weight in the kitchen.

Tone up the bod the gym.

    Yes, but exercise makes a bad diet less damaging. And I know that it was REALLY helpful to me to be able to eat 80% of the things I had "before" and still loose weight. I neever felt deprived, which was vital to the keep going part of a diet.

    I'm totally guilty when it comes to this issue. After my son was born in April, I worked out non-stop but i didn't really change my bad eating habits. The scale either stayed the same or went up. So frustrating!

I'm determined to focus on both this time. You are right, you can't out exercise a bad diet!

I can relate to what your saying. I think most of us push ourselves really hard or are just plain hard on ourselves.

There is no easy way out!

Wednesday, December 05, 2012



I know there have been times in my life when I have wished there was an easy way or a "magic pill" to lose weight. I can also tell you that I have tried many, many things, but nothing has worked except hard work, dedication, perseverance & the support of others.

SparkPeople is what you make it. You can still try to do this on your own, but I am having much more success with the support of my SparkFriends & I know others are, too.

I have also learned something about myself on this journey. I am a better person, a stronger person, for doing the hard work. I don't get as discouraged when the scale isn't moving because I know in my heart I've been making those healthy choices day in & day out & I've been exercising like I'm supposed to.

Remember . . . slow & steady wins the race.

So, roll up your sleeves & let's get to work!!!

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    Thanks for this encouragement. It's tempting, when hearing of the success of others, to assume that they're somehow better or more self-controlled or have some other advantage over oneself, but as you say, there is no easy way. We just have to work at it, and if we do that, perhaps we 'ordinary' folks can become successes too.

I sure hope so.

    I love this. It's funny but I was listening to my ipod yesterday and the first four or five songs were about being beautiful and embracing your beauty. I thought it was pretty ironic because I had just been very critical and negative towards myself. I feel as though God wanted me to hear those songs, many of which I had never heard before. He wanted me to know that I "AM" beautiful.

And anytime I see myself in the mirror I am going to do this.
Thank you.

    Don't think I can accept the challenge, but I like the scale pic.
Glad the LITTLE girl is doing well.

    That is great news about your niece. Just think about the wonderful example you will be setting for her as she grows up. Every little girl needs a healthy, strong woman for a role model!
