Get Up and At 'Em

I find that get up and getting out early helps me stay on track and feel positive. Planning a first thing for each day even if only a trip to the library has me think of other things I'd like to do and it keeps me from emotional eating too. I can take care of my emotions and this is one way!

Love yourself

If you do not love yourself, no one else will have the chance to love you either. Love yourself and give yourself that extra push to accomplish your goals.

Keep it simple!

Keep it simple... eat right and exercise more. Know what you have eaten, make yourself move and stay positive!

Twirl!

a la Loretta Laroche--you see little kids amusing themselves by spinning around in circles or just twirling for the joy of it. The next time you're stressed just randomly twirl right in the middle of what you're doing. Yes, it's gonna look strange. But it feels GREAT!

Resting

Sometimes I write things and people are questioning if they are success secrets and in my mind most are. A few haven't but it was something I had to post. Today is my health is getting me weak but I am fighting to keep going. I rested today to do things tomorrow. If I pace I succeed in doing things.

what it is I want

I know that I am only new to sparkpeople, I have lost weight before, now I am 50lbs away from my goal. But I never forget the feeling that I get when I have reached a goal, simple as it may be. I give myself a pat in the back every morning and get a fresh breath of air. New day, new beginning.

Yogi Tea

I drink Yogi tea every day. There are so many choices to suit mood, flavor, and purpose. The products are organic, and inspirational messages are on each tea bag tag. A real treat!

It is about me!

All my life I have been "trying" to lose weight. I have never really had success with "dieting". I finally realized that this has to be for ME! It's not about anyone else, especially not about letting my father not have what he belittled me about for all of my growing up years.

This is for you not anyone else

Don't listen to what other people think. This is for you and you alone. Everyone thinks they know what you are or aren't doing. Be polite but stay focused on your own goals not what others believe your goals should be.
