Live life forwards.

Thursday, May 30, 2013



Only use the past as a lesson -- don't dwell there. Keep looking & moving forward.



It's not about a diet . . . it's about a lifestyle. Decide what you can live with.



Take one step at a time & then keep on stepping.



Do the very best that YOU can do. This isn't a competition with anyone but YOU.



Above all, remember that you are worth it.



I'll say it again: You are worth it!



Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    Soooo many wonderful points here today, Sheila! But the one I'm taking away is the one that is supporting me emoticon today ... there is no competition. I'm moving to teams where I feel that message. Where I'm not judged. Where I can simply be me. Ohhhhh what a better place that is for my peace of mind and growth! And it's true, this journey IS all about me!

Have a wonderful day, dear friend!!! emoticon

The best is yet to come!!!

Wednesday, May 29, 2013



Isn't that exciting? I've lived a pretty great life so far. I've seen some cool stuff, visited some neat places. I am healthy & happy. I have an amazingly wonderful husband, an awesome family, super great friends, including my SparkBuddies. emoticon I am truly blessed. But . . . the best is yet to come. emoticon

Why? Because I'm getting healthier & more fit every single day. I'm making those healthy choices. I am determined that when I'm 65, I'm NOT going to be laid up in bed with aches & pains. I'm going to be the one at the gym that everyone else is trying to keep up with. emoticon



Yes, progress is slow, but slow is still progress.





Won't that be emoticon ?!!?

Let's grow some miracles today!!



Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    I wish I'd come to my senses sooner. I'm a 60 year old lady who is fat, out of shape, and has numerous health problems. As of April 24 I've been on a mission to change that. It's never too late to do something, but the earlier you start the easier it will be and the more progress you will make. I regret the years I wasted. I applaud you for not making the same mistake I did. Go for it! You can do it! Love yourself!

Hand in hand . . .

Tuesday, May 28, 2013



Could we all do this journey alone? Maybe, but so many times I look to you for motivation when mine is waning. Sometimes I look to you for inspiration. Sometimes I look to you for encouragement & support. I'm not sure that I could do this alone. I think I would have quit long before now. The SparkPeople community keeps me coming back.

So let's do this hand in hand. Whatta you say?



Let's lift one another up. By helping others, you are also helping yourself.



Let's all:



Let's do this hand in hand.

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    I know I can't do this alone...every time I've tried I've failed. We are all helping each other here, which is a beautiful thing. "Hand in hand" is a beautiful image and I will keep in mind. It takes away some of the fear to know that I have so many people to turn to when I need help or motivation. I only wish I'd come here sooner.

    You are so right! When I started out I thought I could do it on my own and was nervous about "putting myself out there." Since I've ventured out -- I am so glad I did! I could not imagine how motivating and inspiring it would be! I've met some fabulous people and I am continually reminded about how well Spark works if you just follow it! It really DOES take a village! heheh

Well stated, Nilla!

I can say this with certainty because I've tried to do it so many times before.

You guys ROCK!

Shoot for the moon . . .

Monday, May 27, 2013



~ Les Brown ~

One of the things I was concerned about when I started SparkPeople was "dreaming big." I tend to be realistic to a fault & I thought I knew my limitations. So I set tiny little goals -- not big lofty ones.

I've learned that it's better if you do dream big. Set that huge & lofty goal, than make smaller goals along the way to help you get to that big one. I've also learned that I exceeded what I thought were my limitations. Now, I'm shooting for the moon!!! emoticon

Let's go for great!!



You can't reach your goal if you don't aim for it and:



I hope to reach my goal some day. I will get there because I am determined (stubborn). emoticon It might take me 3 more years (I hope not that long), but I WILL get there because I refuse to give up this time. The going may be slow, but I'm still going!!

Remember:



Let's get this done!!

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    You know, I've never been one to set small goals. Ever since I started SP, I've been aiming for what most people would think was impossible...but I figured if I was going to do this, I'd have to aim for the I'm Possible! (borrowed from Audrey Hepburn)

    reading this brought my favorite quote from louisa may alcott-
far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations,
i may not reach them
but i can look up and see their beauty,
believe in them and try to follow where they lead.

also another quote came to mind though i donīt know who it was by.
aim for the moon and if you donīt reach it you will atleast land in the stars.

great blog love and you know you are right in that we really donīt realise how much we can do till we try. emoticon
