    Experiencing setbacks and having stressful situations is a fact of life. In order to avoid feelings of being over whelmed by stress and to make positive gains, we first need to learn to look for the positive side of everything. The following is an exercise I got from the lawofattraction.com. St... Read more

  • Goal reached!

    10/29/2014 7:47:18 PM, by NHERBISON

    One of my goals is to make a donation to our local food pantry each time I lose 15 lbs. This is what 15 pounds (of food) looks like. I realize it is dead weight, but that much is HEAVY! So it is, too, on my body.... Read more

  • Sitting most of the day...

    10/29/2014 7:39:38 PM, by LESLIELENORE

    Spent a lot of time just sitting today. Mom ended up doing two mediations instead of just one. I started... and finished... a book while I waited for her. Add in the drive time, and it was a significant portion of my day. I just barely managed to get 120 minutes of exercise in. It didn't help t... Read more

  • Thoughts on Wednesday

    10/29/2014 5:09:23 PM, by KALISWALKER

    Today I read a few blogs. Someone wrote about the importance of be an example to our children. I certainly agree and replied 'Teaching our children to eat properly will be what they remember as home cooking.' I am an empty nester and wish I knew then, what I know now. But I do remember how kids can ... Read more

  • ANOTHER NEW DAY

    10/29/2014 5:06:42 PM, by WILDXANGELS

    Not going to eat over today, but I do want to curl up into a ball and stay in bed all day. Sometimes the emotional pain is all consuming enough that I dont feel hungry for once. I think weekly therapy would help. Been resistant until now because I just figured life was life and I should be able to s... Read more

    10/29/2014 4:38:27 PM, by DRTOVAH

    Just a short post as I'm having time consuming tech issues, more on that later. I just saw I got 1800 miles in with Fitbit and Spark. Yay me! A little quicker than I thought it would happen.

  • Life is good!

    10/29/2014 3:51:40 PM, by TUTUNAN

    Today is my 81st birthday, and I am back from a 3 mile walk! This is amazing only because of where I was headed before I found Spark People. My top weight was 188 (only because I refused to get on the scale after that!). I sat around on my duff, munching on whatever, for the largest part of every ... Read more
