Substitute for Noodles

When I'm in the mood for something on the noodle side but don't want to use pasta, I substitute broccoli slaw. It comes already shredded and adding my favorite veggies to the this along with protien & sauce I have a wonderful dish. The slaw gives me the feel and texture of noodles.

Sparkpage - Private or Open

I believe that if you set your Sparkpage to private that you are limiting the benefit that you will receive from other members. If we get a chance to know you, we can offer you a pat on the back or a boost when it's needed or deserved. Friends..who may be perfect strangers..are the core of SP.

Bigger lunch

I eat a larger lunch and a smaller dinner. This seems to help in the weight loss success. I find it better not to eat so many calories at night.

Learn to love yourself!

The best motivation I have found is learning to love myself today, where I am now. If I really love and value myself as I am, I'll do what is needed to take care of myself.

Recycling magazines

Pass on your magazines when you are done to friends and neighbors, instead of throwing them away. When I have a pile of magazines I am done reading, I place them in the mail room where I live for my neighbors to take home and enjoy; many of my other neighbors share their magazines this way too.

Snacking can help!

I make sure not to get too hungry by enjoying healthy snacks. It helps to carry snacks at all times so that you always have a healthy alternative.
